Peugeot 207 Gets New Euro 5 HDi Engine in the UK

The British division of Peugeot announced it has added a new 6-Speed manual gearbox and a new Euro 5 HDi diesel engine to the Peugeot 207 hatchback and SW model range. They come to replace the 207 Sport HDi 110 hatchback and SW Sport and Outdoor HDi 110 versions.

The improvements brought by the new 1.6 litre HDi 112 FAP diesel engine include increased performance and a quieter operation, while at the same time reduced CO2 emissions.

The new powerplant is capable of developing a maximum torque output of 270 Nm at 1,750 rpm, an increase of 12.5% over the current engine and, during overboost, 285 compared to 260 Nm, Peugeot says. Its maximum power output is 112 bhp at 3600 rpm.

According to the carmaker, between this new 1.6 litre HDi and its predecessor, more than 50 % of the parts have been entirely redesigned.

The engine uses Peugeot’s Extreme Combustion Chamber System (ECCS) technology and a new Continental Automotive System common rail injection where the injection pressure is increased to 1,650 bars (compared to 1,600 previously) as well as new piezo-electric injectors with seven apertures.

The engine management software has also been entirely redesigned to give this unit more comprehensive injection mapping (up to 5 injections per cycle).

The engine also uses a Honeywell Turbo Technology variable-geometry turbocharger, an improved exhaust gas recirculation system (EGR valve) and a reduction of internal friction. Like its predecessor, this 1.6 litre HDi comes as standard with a diesel particulate emission filter (FAP) with a service life of 112,000 miles.

Peugeot 207 Sport models also benefit from a fitment of dark tinted rear windows and rear electric windows on the five-door hatchback and SW versions.
