New generation of 3-cylinder engines

A new stage in the Group's downsizing strategy, this new generation of engine block permits a true breakthrough in terms of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, while offering a good level of performance for the "entry-level" versions.

Designed by the PSA Peugeot Citroën Group and produced at its Trémery factory in France, the 1.0 l and 1.2 l VTi versions will allow the 208 to offer petrol versions at 99 g/km and 104 g/km of CO2. These normally aspirated indirect injection engines have respective maximum powers of 50 and 60 kW (68 and 82 hp) at 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 95 and 118 Nm at 3,000 and 2,750 rpm respectively. This block is designed to be both very compact and light, with an aluminium alloy cylinder block and cylinder head, the exhaust manifold integrated in the cylinder head... It also benefits from numerous technological features such as the variable valve timing system (VVT) on the inlet and exhaust camshafts or the variable capacity oil pump.
