The winner of 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 International engine of the year award in the 1.0-litre to 1.4-litre category, Peugeot’s PureTech is advanced 3-cylinder petrol engine technology that offers a drive and performance normally associated with much bigger engines but with significantly improved fuel consumption and CO2 emissions*.
In other words, a 1.2 PureTech engine gives you the power and performance of a 1.6-litre engine, but the efficiency of a smaller engine.
It’s a product of Peugeot’s 100 years of intelligent, innovative engineering and combines reduced weight materials with the efficiency of applying direct fuel injection to three cylinders.
On some versions Peugeot have even added Turbo power, optimising torque at all revs and delivering an engine with a unique personality and one which is ultimately designed to give you maximum driving pleasure and responsiveness, at any speed, for less.
