The all aluminium 4-cylinder engine is the result of the third phase of the partnership between PSA Peugeot Citroen and the Ford Motor Company.
The engine offers high performance in terms of driving economy and respect for the environment. With a capacity of 1.6 litres the engine is fitted with a particulate emission filter (FAP), variable geometry turbocharger and an air / air intercooler. It develops a maximum power of 110 bhp at 4000 rpm and a maximum torque of 180 lb.ft at 1,750 rpm, which thanks to the "over boost" function – activated with the engine at full load between 1,500 rpm and 3,750 rpm – can provide a temporary torque increase to 195 lb.ft.
The engine is available in S, SE and Estate models, as well as the new XSi HDi, complete with 17" alloy wheels. Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) is available as an option on all models.
Improved fuel consumption of 45.5 mpg on the urban cycle, compared to 40.3 mpg for the old 2.0 litre version, results in an overall 6% improvement to 57.6 mpg on the combined cycle.
With prices starting from £14,820 and, with reduced running costs, a lower benefit in kind taxation of 15% due to a CO2 level of 129 g/km, owning the new 307 HDi 110 will not break the bank.Published 30 May 2004
