Peugeot updates PureTech engine in facelifted 308

Peugeot has revealed its latest generation of the 308, which incorporates a raft of changes, including sharpened styling and the latest versions of its efficient diesel and petrol powertrains.

The three-cylinder petrol engine has undergone a major upgrade, with at-source and at-exhaust emission control for lower real-life fuel consumption and 'even more' efficient pollution reduction. High-precision injection control on the PureTech 130 Stop&Start engine enhances combustion efficiency: exhaust gases go through a catalytic converter then a passive-regeneration gasoline particle filter. A new six-speed manual gearbox reaps maximum benefit.

The new 308 is also the first PSA Group model to get the new BlueHDi 130 S&S Diesel engine; a four-cylinder unit that also implements at-source and at-exhaust emission control. Combustion efficiency is improved by a patented combustion chamber design, the efficacy of which was proven under competition conditions in the 24-hour Le Mans event. Further efficiency gains are stated as the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) pollution control system, fitted as close as possible to the engine for the fastest possible post-treatment action.

The BlueHDi 180 Stop&Start Diesel engine, exclusive to the 308 GT model, is available with a new-generation EAT8 automatic transmission, which has been developed with Japanese specialists Aisin. A new eight-speed unit featuring slick, smooth, linear response, plus Stop&Start capability from 12mph, Peugeot states that this 'powerful and highly efficient powertrain offers a rapid and direct driving experience'.
