Peugeot’s New 208 BlueHDi Is The Cleanest Non-Hybrid Model On The Market

Peugeot UK announced the availability of the cleanest version of their 208 supermini, the 75hp BlueHDi diesel S&S which returns just 79g/km of CO2 emissions.

This figure makes the Peugeot 208 the best-performing non-hybrid model on the market. In a world where emissions standards are under severe pressure, Peugeot offers the 208 with their cleanest-yet version of the 1.6-litre BlueHDi diesel engine which produces 75hp, allowing the French supermini to return a combined 94.2mpg UK of fuel consumption.

Peugeot also offers the same engine with 100hp and 120hp power outputs, with the latter mated to a six-speed gearbox -instead of the standard five-speed unit. Every diesel version of the updated 208 is now below 95g/km of CO2 emissions.

This became possible thanks to Peugeot’s Selective Catalytic Reduction technology combined with an additive filter, with the company showcasing the extreme fuel economy of their supermini in May 2015, when a strictly standard production 208 equipped with a 100hp 1.6-litre BlueHDi S&S diesel engine and a five-speed manual gearbox covered 1337,19 miles (2,152km) burning just 43 litres of diesel, averaging an impressive 141.2mpg (2.0lt/100km).

The new Peugeot 208 79g/km model is offered in two trim levels and is priced from 14,995 for the Active and £16,195 for the Allure version.
