The engines available in the forthcoming Peugeot 208 have been announced, with average emissions 34g/km lower than the 207.
All diesel engines fall under 99g/km, a figure matched by a new 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol unit, which is one of the greenest petrol engines on sale.
Four of the five diesel configurations will be equipped with the marque’s e-HDi micro hybrid Stop & Start system, which Peugeot say improves efficiency and emissions by up to 15 percent in town driving.
With Stop & Start fitted, the 68bhp 1.4-litre diesel engine will emit 87g/km and return 83.1mpg on the combined cycle. A non Stop & Start-equipped version of the same engine will emit 98g/km and return 74.3mpg – figures matched by 92bhp 1.6-litre models fitted with either a five-speed manual or six-speed automated manual gearbox. A high-output 115bhp 1.6 registers 99g/km and 74.3mpg.
In total five petrol engines will be available, ranging from 1.0 to 1.6-litres. The new 68bhp 1.0 three-cylinder engine is joined by an 82bhp 1.2-litre sister engine emitting 104g/km and capable of 62.8mpg on the combined cycle.
