How journey. How much they will contribute the SUV Peugeot 3008 and Peugeot 5008 in this race in which Peugeot continues apace, consolidating itself as “mouse head” . They can now boast of being one of the first purchase alternatives among those who acquire a Volkswagen … Or vice versa: those who buy a Peugeot They come to look at what VW offers. It makes Peugeot this year with a Peugeot 308 and a VW Golf, its natural rival, curiously models almost simultaneously premiered its renewed products. For Peugeot, yes, you will not have to look far to find the secret ingredients … do you?

All the information about the main innovations of the Peugeot 308 range that the brand has so far provided you have it here, but now we have already had occasion get your controls and try some of the new invoice engines. It should, though you have already made a break to read the main changes, clarify a couple of details in relation to the main mechanical novelties premieres Peugeot 308 2017 and its first come from the time it is put on sale: in June and you can order (the prices, with discounts and special promotions 4,000 euros They included, depart from 15,850 euros in the case of the 5-door and from 16,650 euros of the family SW) Although Deliveries will be made from September. I remember, therefore, that both the 1.5 BlueHDi 130 hp 1.2 PureTech as identical power are brand new engines, while in the field of gearboxes, there will be a 8 automatic relations new bill for BlueHDI 180 hp and a new 6-speed manual transmission for said gasoline engine. In the case of the Diesel, will identify the new BlueHDi easily: for its new engine. 1.6 BlueHDi to be sold during the first months marketing engines are not far out of date, but it is important that you consider this detail.

Peugeot 308 2017In the case of gasoline goes more or less the same: the all-new 130 hp 1.2 PureTech (Therefore also Euro 6c) replaced from September to current engine with the same name and power, while its new manual gearbox 6 relations will not arrive until later this year. In October will welcome the BlueHDI / 180 with said automatic transmission Aisin 8 relations. As I say, they are little nuances if you must be the last. In some cases it will be worth waiting; in others maybe not so much.

Peugeot 308 1.5 BlueHDi / 130: “cleaner” less stuck

With this Diesel engine 130 hp 1.5 BlueHDi, Peugeot is ahead in time on emissions. If the current Euro 6b (1.6 BlueHDi) are require a new twist from September this year, when it comes into force the new antipollution regulations Euro 6c, Peugeot goes even further with this new 130 hp 1.5 BlueHDI, engine capable of meeting requirements to be imposed even in 2020. And now, let’s see what brings this new engine. In technical content, this engine provides much, namely the equivalent of no less than 200 patent. Returns butt 16 valve, new turbo, improved injection system, especially, a new catalyst and particulate filter integrated trap DeNOx two phases. Peugeot has so far provided no consumption, but cites a reduction of 4 percent to 1.6 BlueHDi 120 hp. Regarding this engine, the new 130 hp 1.5 BlueHDi get those 10 hp more at a rate of 250 top rpm (3,750 rpm), while the maximum torque is identical in both engines both in value, 30.59 mkg, as the rate at which states: 1,750 rpm.

Peugeot 308 2017It is clear that only the environmental benefit reporting the new engine is infinitely more recommended, although It is not a propeller that makes us forget the engine that will eventually replace time in months. His best quality indisputably the linear delivery of power and torque, improving already tremendous elasticity of 1.6 BlueHDi. Also touring with more easily in overrevving, surpassed that area of ​​maximum power. But his response to throttle the I felt less consistent and more artificial: the reaction is not always proportional to the power demand from the accelerator you request. Certainly much does the smaller displacement, but also that new “chemical plant” processing and debugs particles and harmful gases in the exhaust line, then virtually collector. The engine itself keeps moving to Peugeot 308, Sea 5 doors or family, with enough agility, but also at the cost of more frequent use of the gear change, whose exchange developments also have been reported yet. By the way, in Peugeot they have already noticed a change of trend in demand for fuel engines: Gasoline continues to rise in sales to individuals.

Peugeot 308 2017: A good reference behavior

As for dynamic behavior, Peugeot has not reported any work under the body, although outside the engine, I feel the Peugeot 308 quieter but also more consistent on the road. He cabin, without major changes in design or geometry (yes in equipment and driving assistants, where they get all new devices presented in SUV 3008 and 5008) still has excellent materials and adjustments although still lacking shortcut buttons to functions. Fortunately, the center screen is faster than before. As for dynamic behavior, Peugeot 308 2017 is one of those cars in which the suspension seems neither too hard nor soft: guarantees excellent comfort and high efficiency at all times. Soon we will also climb to the GTi sports version, which, by the way, there are also new features: goodbye range version of 250 hp, the 270 hp being the only power level now available.
