|Since its debut in 2012 and a refreshed version last year, the Peugeot 208 has been a popular choice for sub compact car buyers the world over. The Peugeot 208 in 2016 is offered in the lowest CO2 version, with emissions as low as just 79g/km.|
The revised engine line-up means all versions of the Peugeot 208 meet stringent Euro 6 emissions standards, made possible with sophisticated BlueHDi technology ensuring every diesel version of the new 208 is below 95g/km of CO2. There are two 79g/km versions in Active and Allure trim levels, in both 3 and 5 doors, powered by the 1.6-litrt BlueHDi 75hp with Stop & Start (S&S) technology. Other models utilizing the same 1.6-litre BlueHDi engines are also available with three power level choices: in 75hp, 75hp S&S, 100hp and 120hp S&S.
PEUGEOT is rapidly reducing the CO2 emissions of all of its vehicles in a tangible way with the accelerated implementation of the 3-cylinder PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel engines, as well as the new 1.6-liter THP engines and EAT6 six-speed automatic transmission. Twenty PEUGEOT vehicles (five PureTech, three 1.6-liter THP and twelve BlueHDi) are class leading in their power class for CO2 emissions.
These meet the demand by the French marque for developing more environmentally friendly engines, in particular those that are cleaner and produce less CO2. Peugeot’s environmental performance helped the PSA Peugeot Citroen Group maintain leadership in Europe in 2014 with average CO2 emissions of 110.3g/km, in a European market where the average is at 123.7g/km. As an individual Brand the Peugeot product average is 109.5g/km.
Combining SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) and an additive particle filter in a unique way, the BlueHDi technology demonstrates it is the most efficient and effective diesel emissions control system.
Representing nearly 30% of all registrations, the B-segment is the second largest by volume in the European market. It accounts for two out of every three cars sold and Peugeot continues to be a dominant player in this sector with one million examples of the 208 produced.
Providing standardised new car fuel economy and emissions figures is a requirement imposed on all car manufacturers by the EU Directive 80/1268/EEC. Peugeot has a track record second to none and the Brand has the lowest Corporate Average Fuel Emissions (CAFE) of any volume manufacturer.
