Advanced Car Control Communication System

Another function is the MyPEUGEOT Link. This is a free application for smartphones, available for both Android and IOS, in which you can monitor fuel consumption, continue navigation after parking the car and locate where the vehicle was parked, among others.Refined and elegant: a cabin with new interior liningsThe perceived quality of the materials used by the New 208 in relation to the finish and coating of the seats is remarkable. In the different versions of the range, the materials used alternate to give a unique personality to each configuration.As an example, the air-conditioning aerators, door handles and gearshift knob in gray, glossy black and chrome. The multifunction steering wheel, as standard on the whole line, has also been the subject of extra care. With the exception of the initial version, the piece features leather trim with chrome-satin and always with the lion emblem chromed to the center. The same goes for the high instrument panel, which receives glossy black and chrome embellishers. With the central LCD screen, the illumination of the equipment and dials is white, with a red needle in the initial version.All these elements combine with the various fabrics of excellent quality that lining the seats. There are also a large number of shelves, such as refrigerated glove compartments, spaces in the side doors and the compartment opposite the exchange, which can be used to store cans or objects such as cell phones.With the exception of the Active and Active Pack versions, the New 208 also offers the panoramic glass ceiling on the 2017 line. Designed for higher category models, the 0.66 m² floor space is another model exclusivity in the segment and provides the occupants with optimal internal brightness and a wide space dimension. It is possible to regulate the entrance of light inside the vehicle thanks to the closing / opening of the curtain of the ceiling.

Equipment brings new sensation when driving

The New 208 renews the pleasure and experience of driving through its instruments, controls and equipment. The i-Cockpit breaks with the traditional driver’s welcoming structure, with its unique ergonomics that multiplies the sensations of driveability and agility. And an item that helps provide these sensations is the direction with variable electrical assistance: precise and agile.The steering wheel has controls to control the functions of the radio and the Bluetooth hands-free car kit. The technological instrument panel and a complete package of equipment demonstrate the New 208 ahead of its time: automatic air conditioning digital bizone; front and rear obstacle sensor, on-board computer with three modes of operation and nine functions integrated into the multimedia center; autopilot / speed limiter; rain and light sensors; aft camera and front, side and curtain airbags, always depending on the trim version.Exemplary Dynamic BehaviorThe New 208 holds a high-level synthesis of dynamic behavior. With pseudo-McPherson strut front suspension and deformable crosshead suspension, the excellence of its spring-and-shock absorber assemblies, specific calibration for running on Brazilian roads, ensures a dynamic behavior that works with the best compromise between comfort and sportiness. This to perpetuate and enrich driving pleasure.New Puretech 1.2 three-cylinder engine: the most economical in BrazilThe New 208 is not only ahead of its time in relation to its internal architecture and more complete series equipment offering in the segment. In the line 2017, the model debut the brand new Puretech 1.2l three-cylinder, which is already the most economical in Brazil and still replaces the current 1.5l with

numerous advantages:

3-cylinder architecture allows compact dimensions and reduced weight;
Reduction of frictional mechanical losses: Use of low friction materials in the pistons (DLC) and adapted technologies, such as controlled oil pump or oil-strap distribution belt; Optimized dimensioning of each component.
Tailor-made combustion technology (optimization of aerodynamic properties of the chamber, variable inlet and exhaust adjustment, cylinder head with 4 valves per cylinder);
Injection of fuel with heating in the injector nozzle dispensing the use of the auxiliary tank of cold start;
GSI system, which indicates to the driver the best moment of the gearshift, aiming at the most economical condition of the fuel consumption. An indicator arrow located on the instrument panel will show the best time for the driver to shift to the top or bottom gear.

In addition to complying with the pollutant emission reduction requirements recommended by the Federal Government’s Inovar Auto program, the choice of this propeller allowed it to remain in line with the brand’s quality and sophistication positioning. Because it is an engine that combines as little performance and consumption, it provides comfort and pleasure in driving.Thus, Puretech 1.2l has the lowest fuel consumption among all 3-cylinder engines on the Brazilian market. It is up to 37% more economical in the city compared to the 1.5l 4-cylinder, 25% more efficient on average compared to competitors in urban use and around 15% on the road when fueled with ethanol.The 3-cylinder propeller has gone through more than 400,000 miles driven for validation and adaptation to the vehicle. It also required 5,400 hours of validation in test bench (engine dynamometer) and a series of adaptations in relation to the European engine:
Ignition system with heating of the injectors, for elimination of the cold starting fuel tank;
Reinforced pistons for the use of ethanol; – 1.2 mm thick rings favoring reduction of friction and, consequently, reduction of fuel consumption;
Block with reinforced bearings and with piston cooling system (oil jet at the bottom of the pistons);
Reinforced bronze;
Heads with reinforced valve seats for the use of ethanol;
Reinforced inlet valves;
Canister electrovalve adapted for use with ethanol;
Special whip for the bi-fuel motor, adapted to the cold start system.

The new engine produces 90 hp of maximum power at 5,750 rpm using ethanol (127 Nm of torque at 2,750 rpm). In the gasoline are 84 hp of maximum power and 120 Nm of torque, in the same rotations. Always associated with a five-speed manual transmission, the propeller equips the initial versions of the vehicle.The intermediate configuration uses the EC5 engine, which already equipped the 208. It is the 1.6l 16V aspirated, equipped with the Flexstart technology, which does not require the use of the additional tank for cold starting. This propeller is attached to the 5-speed manual transmission or 4-speed sequential automatic transmission. It generates 122 hp of maximum power at 5,800 rpm using ethanol (161 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm). In gasoline, its numbers are 115 hp maximum power at 6,000 rpm and 152 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm.
This engine had a great evolution in the lubrication system, with the use of a more efficient oil, that allowed to improve the performance and to reduce the consumption of fuel.To assist the driver in reducing fuel consumption, this engine has the GSI, which indicates in the instrument panel the most suitable gear to ensure a lower fuel consumption. Another important function of the set is the EcoDrive program. Attached to the automatic gearbox, when activated the driver may notice a smoother operation to reduce fuel consumption. Fuel economy can reach up to 7% in urban use. In the instrument panel, the function is identified by the ‘ECO’ pictogram.For the top-of-the-line version, PEUGEOT has reserved the new generation of THP 1.6l Flex turbo engine, which produces power from 173 hp to 6,000 rpm (in ethanol) and 166 hp when fueled with gasoline, reproducing the same torque in the same range (240 Nm at 1,400 rpm).

This propeller makes use of direct injection technology and, due to its own fuel pressure, eliminates the need for any cold start auxiliary system. It had its compression ratio increased to achieve higher power with ethanol, in addition to having the fuel pump changed to run on this fuel. The engine is associated with a 6-speed manual gearbox.Meet the range of the new PEUGEOT 208 *The new 208 is available in six finish versions: Active and Active Pack, both equipped with the new Puretech 1.2 engine and manual gearbox; Allure equipped with Puretech 1.2 or Allure engine with 1.6 16V engine and sequential automatic transmission; Sport, equipped with 1.6-liter 16V engine and manual transmission; Griffe, equipped with 1.616V engine and sequential automatic transmission and the GT, equipped with THP turbo engine and six-speed manual gearbox. All versions bring the most complete serial equipment list in the segment.* see datasheet with complete list of standard equipment available for each version.Tranquility guaranteed by after-sales services

2018 – PEUGEOT 308 GTI TCR BY ARDUINI CORSE

Currently, the Peugeot 308 GTI is one of the most radical hot-hatch available on the market, but there are always those who think that what is offered is not enough and want to take it to a new level. This time it was the Arduini Corse, company owned by the pilot Massimo Arduini, who modified the French model.The basis of the Peugeot is very good by itself, so it was not necessary to stir much to improve it. The center of the preparation is in the engine, a block 1.6 turbo that of series produces 270 hp. The trainer added a new intercooler and a more sporty exhaust system, managing to raise the final power to 302 hp. The increase is good, though not overdone, but when combined with a reduction of weight to 1,155 kilos, the driving dynamics improve a lot. Unfortunately, the trainer did not provide official performance data.Continuing with the mechanical improvements, it uses an adjustable suspension with KW shock absorbers, the brake system has been replaced by a Brembo that uses vented discs of 340 mm in diameter, pants Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and had its gauges widened in 220 mm.This helps give the Peugeot 308 GTI an even more imposing image with muscular wheel arches housing 18-inch white multi-wheel wheels, a specific front bumper with larger air intakes, and a more aggressive rear diffuser.

The Greatest Advantages To Using Custom Vehicle Covers

There are many advantages to using a custom cover for your car. These products are designed to perfectly fit vehicles to provide the most advanced form of protection available. If you wish to protect your vehicle from the elements, then you should review a list of the best benefits of using these products. Custom vehicle covers are particularly useful because they can protect your car by providing a snug fit. A snug fit ensures the product you buy will stay in place once you put it on your car. Covers that do not stay in place often expose vehicles to the elements, animals, and even people. This issue can be particularly apparent in bad weather conditions. Loose fitting products can easily be moved by wind or falling debris and leave vehicles completely exposed allowing for them to be damaged. A cover that stays in place though, provides protection at all times, even if severely windy conditions arise when you are not around to protect your car. These products can also be more convenient than loose fitting covers. Loose fitting covers often require their owners to constantly reposition them to ensure they are protecting their entire vehicle. By having one that fits perfectly though, you will never have to waste time checking your vehicle for damage whenever your cover needs to be repositioned. Once you use these products, you will also be able to protect your car from a wide variety of issues beyond damage directly caused by the elements. For instance, these products can stop dust from accumulating on cars. Protected cars are also kept clean in wet conditions as well.

Water spots are a nuisance to car owners who wish to keep their vehicles clean. By protecting your vehicle, you can stop water spots from developing and preserve any car treatments you recently purchased for your vehicle. As a result, you will be able to save money and time by reducing the number of times you must buy a car wash each month. Custom vehicle covers fit perfectly and they provide a wide array of benefits that make them invaluable to car owners who wish to keep their cars safe to preserve their value. The car cover you buy will even protect your vehicle from fading and cracking due to UV rays while also keeping your car cool while you are away. In the long run, the use of these products will ultimately save you a tremendous amount of time and money due to these valuable benefits.Multiband is a car cover that is designed to keep your car clean even when it is indoors. It has all the protective qualities needed for the indoor use, and even for the occasional outdoor use as well.

When stored in your garage, your car can still collect dust. Probably even more so than when not in a garage, for the simple reason that garages are not the cleanest of places. Usually, they are the dumping ground for bits and bobs, that are stores there for ages collecting dust themselves. Therefore, there is a lot of dust floating around in garages, and will inevitably end up covering your car. Garages are also usually compact, small spaces, designed to fit the car and not much more. People often end up squeezing past the car in an attempt to get to the other side. In doing so, they will very likely scratch and or dent the car, especially if they have something hanging out from their pocket. It is minor, and they usually don’t realize what they have done, however, the mark still remains. The car can also get knocked about when you take out the garbage. As the garage is tight in space, the garbage bag will most likely knock the car. This doesn’t always leave a mark, but if there is something heavy in the bag, like a bottle, then the mark could be bigger than pleasant. To combat these problems, Multiband is made from three layers of polypropylene. It will resist the dirt and dust, as well as providing some resistance to water, and the sun’s ultra-violet rays. This makes sure that on the odd occasion when you end up parking outdoors, you and your car are nonetheless protected. Since the Multiband cover is three layers thick, it is able to absorb the impact of being knocked about, without any impression being left on the car itself. As a result, the car remains free from any undesirable marks. It completely cushions the car form any sort of harm.

Multiband fabric is also breathable. This means that air and moisture are able to pass out through the fabric of the cover and away from the car, giving the car a chance to breathe and sweat. Hence there is no worry of the car getting steamed up and, or moldy whilst it is covered. At the same time though, the cover will still make sure to resist air and moisture from entering in through the fabric. Therefore, the car will still be able to remain bone dry. Owing to the fact that Multiband is an indoor cover, it did not need extensive treatments, as would be the case with outdoor covers, and therefore it does not work out to be an expensive cover. It is an inexpensive, cost-effective way of doing your best to make sure that your car remains to look good, and clean.What people like best about car covers is that they are so practical and can be folded up nice and compactly. They are portable garages that travel around with you everywhere. However, truth be told, it’s not as simple as it seems. Imagine trying to fold a huge, car-sized sheet, neatly. That in itself is an amazing feat, even more so when you’re in a rush to drive off to work on time. Most times, you will end up scrunching up the cover, hoping that it will somehow stay down, and in a corner of the car. It is a cover that will roll up, at the turn of a crank, all in about 15 seconds, no exaggeration. The cover employs specialized drum roll, and snag free technology that uses high speeds of up to 100 RPMs, to get the whole cover into a small little special container. Just turn the crank, and, hey presto, you’ve pulled back the cover, and put it away simultaneously.

To put on, the cover is rolled out, and covers the car bumper to bumper, in a maximum of sixty seconds. No doubt you will agree that this is the best way to stay neat, and be efficient, both very important when running for work! The actual cover itself is also a very good one. It is composed of seven layers of polyurethane and a micro weave taffeta. The material is therefore extremely waterproof, especially under high pressures This means that when the skies open, and it pours, your car will still be able to remain completely dry. Also, the cover itself can be hosed down to be cleaned when on the car, without worries of leakages. Nonetheless, the cover is still breathable. Air and moisture are allowed to pass out through the fabric so that the car has a chance to breathe whilst covered, and there is no risk of it getting steamed up and moldy. The Amazing Roll-Up Cover is also able to resist the sun’s powerful ultraviolet rays from filtering through to the car. These rays could otherwise be rather harmful and dangerous for the car, ruining it in many ways. Instead, the ultraviolet rays are reflected off the cover, away from the car. It goes without saying, that such a cover will also be able to protect the car from getting stained by dust, tree sap, and birds muck. All three leave ghastly stains that are a real nuisance to clean off. It takes lots of time and money to fully clean the car, and you will be glad to be spared the headache!

When buying a Car Covers , you can rest assured that you have the best. To begin with, car covers with elastic band all around is one of the top manufacturing companies of car covers or any type of vehicle covers for that matter. They guarantee that the covers they produce are of top quality, durable and stylish too. Car Coversis just one of the many types of covers that Car Covers manufacture. Car Covers has a wide range of covers because they appreciate the fact that just as no two people are the same, no two climates are the same. Depending on where you live, you will need different types of protection against various things, at varying levels. The Car Covers is one of their ‘all-rounder’ types of car covers. It is a cover that will protect your car in all weather conditions, just as so many years ago Car Covers did to all the animals. The cover is composed of three layers of bi-component fibers, and various different materials closely sheathed together. The inner-most layer is made from polypropylene, together with a tough nylon core to fully protect the car. Next comes a layer of micro porous film that allows the cover to be breathable. This means that air and moisture are able to pass out, through the fabric, so that the car has a chance to breathe whilst covered, and not be in danger of getting steamed up and moldy. At the same time though, the cover remains water resistant. The last, outer layer is polypropylene that is totally weather resistant, including filtering the ultraviolet rays. All in all, the Car Covers will make sure that whilst it covers your car, your car will remain bone dry as rain, sleet and snow are all denied access. The car will be free from any damage that the sun would have otherwise caused. In addition, the car is shielded from those annoying dust, tree sap, and birds muck stains. These stains are a real nuisance as they look so ugly, but are equally difficult to get rid of.

Owing to the fact that the Car cover is three layers thick, it is somewhat bulkier than most other covers. This is not without reason. It is specifically so so that it can cushion the car from any flying debris that has been caught in a wind storm. All too often, things that have been left lying in the streets suddenly find themselves whizzing through the air. Whilst doing so, they inadvertently scratch and dent cars. Car Covers will be able to absorb the impact without leaving a mark on the car itself. The Car Covers cover is a custom one, meaning, that it is made to measure for every customer and his car. This way it will fit the car like a glove, be nice and snug, maximizing the protection offered. Custom covers always look the sleekest and classy due to the superior cut and fit.
