Peugeot will Premiere New Turbo Petrols and Diesel Tech at Geneva
Feb 18, 2014 13:52
Peugeot will bring 28 production and concept cars to the Geneva Motor Show next month including the 108 city car in three door, five door and TOP! Cabrio plus the 308 Station Wagon.
The two new models "signal the start of the next phase in the revamp of the brand's entire range which is already the youngest in its long history".
The two production cars will be joined by the 2008 HYbrid Air and 308 R concepts, both of which were displayed at last year's Frankfurt motor show.
Peugeot will include the premiere of two new engine lineups, the PureTech e-THP three-cylinder turbocharged petrol and the BlueHDi diesel.
The 1.2-liter PureTech gasoline unit that will be available on the new 108 with 82PS (81hp) gains two more editions delivering 110PS (108hp) and 130PS (128hp) – the latter could make a GTi version out of the 108.
The BlueHDi diesel emissions technology uniquely associates Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and a particulate filter with additive to reduce NOx emissions by up to 90 percent, while also improving fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

But if you bought a used car, how do you know if the airbag will deploy when you need it most? Unscrupulous mechanics and thieves are stealing airbags and doing air bag “repairs” without any airbag being installed at all – which is why a free carfax is an imperative step in purchasing a used car.
