The new PureTech three-cylinder turbo petrol engine
The new PEUGEOT 308 SW e-THP 1.2 litre 130 hp introduces the PureTech three-cylinder petrol engine, in its turbocharged version associated with a six-speed manual gearbox. Modular and compact, clean and powerful, this engine is a distillation of efficiency and the latest technology. Its compact dimensions, reduced weight and innovative low friction materials are determining aspects in the virtuous search for performance and economic operation, with no compromise made on reliability and durability. For equivalent power and driveability, this technological advance allows fuel consumption and CO2 emissions to be reduced by 21 %.i
BlueHDi is the name given to the brand’s Euro 6 Diesel engines. The BlueHDi technology allows NOx emissions to be drastically reduced by up to 90% and CO2 emissions and fuel consumption to be optimised, while still eliminating 99.9 % of particulatesi. Three BlueHDi engines will be available at launch. The BlueHDi 1.6 litre 100 coupled to a manual 5-speed gearbox and the BlueHDi 1.6 litre 120 with six-speed manual gearbox are topped off in the range by the BlueHDi 2.0 litre 150, available with six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox.
A virtuous design for optimum performance on every level
As with the hatchback, the new PEUGEOT 308 SW offers a weight reduction of 140 kg. As a result, for an equivalent engine and equipment, it is the lightest vehicle in the segment. This results from two factors: the use of the new EMP2 platform and the choice of innovative technical solutions included in the new PEUGEOT 308 SW. The fluid lines and low width and height of the new PEUGEOT 308 SW immediately suggest good aerodynamic performance, a sure sign of reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Aerodynamic performance, as with weight, is a key factor in reducing the environmental footprint of a vehicle.
