PSA Peugeot Citroën Wins Prestigious International Engine of the Year Award for Third Year in a Row
The International Engine of the Year award in the 1.4-litre to 1.8-litre category was once again won by the 1.6-litre, four-cylinder direct injection turbo petrol engine designed by PSA Peugeot Citroën in cooperation with BMW Group.
Introduced in 2007 on the Peugeot 207, the 175-hp version of the engine also equips the Peugeot 308 THP 175. It is part of a full range of 1.4-litre to 1.6-litre engines that deliver from 95 to 175 hp and up to nearly 200 hp on certain models.
Equipped with the latest technological features, including direct injection for the turbo engine, variable valve timing for the naturally aspirated engine, a volume flow-controlled oil pump and an on-demand water pump, the family improves fuel efficiency and reduces emissions by around 10% compared with the previous generation.
Engines in the 1.4-litre to 1.6-litre category currently equip more than 12 Peugeot and Citroën models, including the Peugeot 207 sedan, 207 CC, 207 SW, 308 sedan, 308CC, 308 SW and 3008, and the Citroën C3 Picasso, C4 sedan and C4 coupé, C4 Picasso and C4 Grand Picasso.
By 2010, nearly 75% of Peugeot and Citroën models will be fitted with 1.4-litre to 1.6-litre petrol engines.
