In terms of figures, the new engine improves fuel economy by 13 to 17 percent and, at the same time, it reduces CO2 emissions by 12 to 15 percent when compared with the 2.7-liter HDi V6 unit developing 208 horsepower.
The 240 hp 3.0-liter HDi unit is capable of achieving a fuel consumption rating of 38 mpg (6.2 l/100km) in combined cycle while releasing 195 grams of CO2 per kilometer. It uses a Diesel Particulate Filter System (DPFS) for an ultra-clean exhaust, Citroen said in a release.
Specifically, the C5 powered by a 3.0-liter HDi V6 unit achieves 38 mpg (an improvement of 13 percent) and releases 195 g/km while the C6 gets the same efficiency rating (up 17 percent compared with the 2.7 HDi unit) and the same emission figures.
"With advanced new engine technology, the new V6 diesel incorporates the third generation of Citroën’s common-rail direct injection system and offers drivers a refined driving experience with its quiet operation and more efficient performance. Delivering an abundance of torque, the new V6 diesel provides exceptional driving pleasure for every-day motoring," Citroen explained.
