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
– 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.

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.
