Having invested heavily in diesel engines, manufacturers are interested again in gasoline. The offensive began on the Peugeot 208, through a modern block three-cylinder 82hp. Sufficient to mention the famous HDi?
Peugeot 208 2.1 VTi 82
- 82 hp - From € 15 100 € 16 550 to A force downsizing their engines to use less, manufacturers end up becoming radicalized. And amputating whole cylinders! Thus, for both gas blocks entry level (1.0 to 68 hp and 82 hp 1.2), the recent Peugeot 208 has only three cylinders under the hood. Architecture previously reserved to urban frail ... Not enough to make fun so far: variable valve timing, oil pump housings and driven cylinder and cylinder head made of aluminum show a degree of modernity. In 2014, direct injection turbo and transform even these small "mills" in jewelry technology. Only available at the moment, the power of 82 hp 1.2 gave us his first delivery. Driveability: good ... and not so good compared to its ancestor the 207 , the Peugeot 208 has a lot of weight: 110 kg on average, 164 kg, and even this entry-level version. The curb weight is contained in a tonne, and using this modest three cylinders to provide sufficient performance.
In town, the driver is even surprised by the flexibility of the devil: the accelerations are alive, and suggest that the motor is more powerful. Once on the road, a smile goes a little: that good health comes from a very sensitive accelerator, even halfway, seems fully open the throttle. In a need for power, the So reminders more disappointing, and it becomes necessary to move at high speed to effectively double. Surprising, given the power that being said, and the 208 remains stronger than the old 207 1.4 75 bhp. consumption: just over 6 liters per 100 km Do not spoil the sound of three cylinders is not too present in the cockpit. Highway and despite a relatively short gear ratios (the motor runs at about 4000 rev / min to 130 km / h), the 208 1.2 proves that even quieter version 1.6 VTi 120 hp. The final pleasant surprise comes from the consumption.
If it seems impossible to hold 4.5 liters per 100 km advertised, it is possible to build on the 6.5 to about 100km mixed course, provided you keep the light foot. remains a default, rather arduous daily especially sensitive to the outskirts of major cities: in one go traffic, the car generates in spurts during deceleration and reacceleration to low speed. A problem not faced by other versions of the 208, with which this version 1.2 shares qualities ... but also some flaws. price / equipment: a well placed 208 Tails, the Peugeot 208 forget the 207 in terms of presentation or interior equipment: the build quality is very proper for the category, and Staffing series lacks nothing from that first level Active. We thus find the stability control, manual air conditioning, cruise control, plus the USB and Bluetooth handsfree. The latter can be controlled from the touch screen, which requires a slight adjustment period but once assimilated practice shows its menus. remains the controversy related to the development of the driver. If placed above the counters are proving very readable, they are unfortunately hidden in some leadership positions, from the top of the handwheel.
A detail quite annoying for some customers, forced to reconsider their position. For others, however, is "all benef '": the steering wheel enhances maneuverability in town like the feeling of agility in turns. Balance If this modern three-cylinder unit is not logically built for frequent motorway journeys it offers sufficient performance for use around major cities. Its discretion, its simplicity and price are also forgetting the noisy diesel: the HDi 68 hp € 1 100 is displayed again, the HDi 90, 2 300 € more! For those who drive less than 15,000 miles a year, this version should not be overlooked ... WE LOVE ? Sobriety gentle pace ? Good flexibility in town ? The price / equipment ? The overall presentation REGRETS ON ? The jerks at low speed ? Raises faiblardes road ? The gearshift unpleasant ? Counters sometimes masked the 208 vs. its competitors petrol Audi A1 Sportback 1.2 TFSI 86 The top of the basket at Audi, small displacement four-cylinder with rhymes, but also with turbo. Result? The approval culminates with this block 86hp: flexibility and discretion are times higher than the Peugeot, and also reasonable consumption at constant speed. But the dress "chic" of the A1 requires a much higher financial effort (€ 17,400 or € 2,400 more than the 208), while the space at the back and trunk are lacking. The alternative to take advantage of this engine is called Skoda Fabia (read below).
CITROEN C3 1.4 VTi 95 powerful ... More and more expensive Citroen At, there are two choices around 85hp petrol: 1.4 of the old 73 hp, too short out of town, or this more modern 1.4 VTi (developed with BMW), height of 95 hp. If the raises are not décoiffantes, they suffice on any type of course and offer a nice versatility to C3, also very comfortable but cramped back seat (bad, because the trunk is spacious: 300 l). The equipment fails the ESP stability control, Bluetooth headset and the USB plug, despite a higher rate than the 208 (a € 400) FIAT PUNTO 0.9 TwinAir Original, but aging Fiat goes further than Peugeot with this block turbocharged two-cylinder 85 hp only! If he is bright and fun at high speed, it lacks approval on a daily basis: vibration and sound in 2 500tr/min disappointing, lack of flexibility during startup (especially in Eco mode, which limits the torque to 100 Nm).
Despite the recent restyling, interior presentation equipment and a little dated (ESP and cruise control optional). Stays at the best space Punto back of the band, and a line always nice. SKODA FABIA 1.2 TSI 85 Big deal The Fabia is not the first multi-purpose that comes to mind at the time of choice. Yet despite a few flaws (a little dry comfort, presentation sad), it deserves attention. First, its 85 hp turbo engine proves very simple and pleasant to carry. Then, its price is unbeatable: less than € 14 000 for this version due (with RadioCD, manual air conditioning and cruise control), which compensates for lackluster resale value. Finally, the trunk is very welcoming, with the 315.
