Peugeot South Africa has recently upgraded the Peugeot 207 model line-up with an array of new engines, all of which now comply to the latest Euro 5 emissions standard.
While some models in the range are already fitted with Euro 5-compliant powerplants, the update brings the entire 207 family in line with the stringent European standard, which focuses on lower fuel consumption and reduced CO2 exhaust emissions.
As a result, the 207 Active Five-Door is now equipped with Peugeot’s latest EP3C four-cylinder engine. Power output remains the same at 70 kW and 136 Nm of torque at 4 000 r/min, however, Peugeot say urban-cycle fuel consumption has been reduced along with CO2 emissions.
The Peugeot 207 1.6 HDi Dynamic Five-Door also benefits from the fitment of a new DV6C turbodiesel engine, now linked to a new 6-speed transmission. Maximum power increases from 80 kW at 4 000 r/min to 82 kW at 3 600 r/min, while the torque peak has been pushed from 240 Nm to 270 Nm at 1 750 r/min. An overboost function provides an extra 25 Nm for 285 Nm. Urban-cycle fuel consumption drops to 5,7 l/100 km, while CO2 emissions are reduced to 119 g/km – below the CO2 emissions tax threshold.
While the new HDi turbodiesel engine in the 207 1.6 HDi Dynamic will add R2 000 to the retail price of the car, the prices remain unchanged for the remaining 207 range.
The appearance and standard features on most of the various 207 models also continues as unchanged, as does the combination of striking styling, high equipment levels and dynamic appeal which the nameplate has become renowned for.
