The Peugeot 308 CC will be the first model in the Peugeot range to benefit from a new 1.6 litre 112 bhp diesel engine. This new four cylinder engine with a capacity of 1, 560 cm3, and eight valves, has a maximum torque output of 270 Nm at 1,750 rpm, an increase of 12.5% over the current engine, and during overboost, 285 compared to 260 Nm. Its maximum power output is 112 bhp at 3600 rpm.
The engine management software has also been entirely redesigned to give this unit more comprehensive injection mapping (up to 5 injections per cycle), improved efficiency and better diagnostics for after-sales service. This helps to improve the homogeneity of the air/diesel fuel mixture for maximum performance, reduced fuel consumption, a reduction of emissions at source and quieter combustion.
An improved exhaust gas recirculation system (EGR valve) and the reduction of internal friction losses allows maximum enhancement of engine efficiency while minimising potential energy losses. Like its predecessor, this 1.6 litre HDi comes as standard with a diesel particulate emission filter (FAP) with a service life of 112,000 miles.
