Peugeot 2008 SUV engines

Designed to produce drivability and performance, the PureTech 3-cylinder petrol engines in the Peugeot 2008 SUV combine efficiency with cutting-edge technology resulting in greater driving pleasure with lower running costs.

Winner of the 2015, 2016 and 2017  International  Engine of the Year Award in the 1.0-litre to 1.4-litre category, Peugeot PureTech is advanced 3-cylinder petrol engine technology offering  a drive and performance normally associated with much bigger engines  : put simply,  you have a 1.2L petrol  engine with the power and performance of a 1.6L engine, but with the efficiency of a smaller engine.

It’s a product of Peugeot’s 100 years of intelligent, innovative engineering and combines reduced weight materials with the efficiency of applying direct fuel injection to three cylinders.
The 2008 SUV also features the 6-speed petrol automatic gearbox which uses quickshift technology allowing for faster gear changes and offering seamless gear changes and faultlessly smooth drive.

BlueHDi Engine

Our 2008 SUV also comes with clean, powerful and efficient diesel engines. Generated from our world-famous diesel heritage and innovative, automotive engineering excellence, PEUGEOT’s BlueHDi complies with Euro 6 emission standards to deliver a driving experience rich in power and performance but with exceptional fuel economy and CO2 emissions.

BlueHDi engines meet Euro 6 standards thanks to Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and Particle Filtration processes. BlueHDi delivers the cleanest diesel engine possible, and with 2008 SUV delivers fuel economy of up to 76.3mpg* with CO2 as low as 96g/km^.   Have you ever wondered how this is achieved?

A three stage cleansing process specifically targets the pollutants of diesel combustion, removing hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide, reducing nitrogen oxides by up to 90% and eliminating 99.9% of particulates:

Stage One - the oxidation catalytic converter eliminates the HC and the CO2, transforming them into water (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2)

  • Stage Two - the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) transforms the nitrogen oxides (NOx) into water and nitrogen (N2), which is the main constituent of air (78%), due to the addition of AdBlue® (mixture of urea and water)
  • Stage Three - the Particulate Emission Filter eliminates 99.9% of the particulates by number.

*On the combined cycle. ^Based on a 1.6L BlueHDi 120 S&S engine.
