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 engine is the result of Peugeot’s continual development and optimisation of its diesel HDi FAP technology, widely acclaimed for its performance and efficiency.

This new 1.6 litre HDi FAP diesel engine has been designed to meet the requirements of the new Euro 5 emission standards. It also benefits from a number of improvements over the current 110 bhp unit with improved performance in terms of flexibility and responsiveness, as well as noise reduction, while at the same time reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Thanks to its new hi-tech design, 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. It also has a very wide operating range with high levels of torque available at all times, ensuring good driveability and reduced fuel consumption on a day to day basis (since the user can drive more often at lower engine speeds): 135 Nm from 1000 rpm, 242 at 1500 rpm, 270 from 1750 to 2000 and 224 Nm at 3500 rpm. Its maximum power output is 112 bhp at 3600 rpm.
