Introducing the EAT6 automatic gearbox, available as standard in the new 208. With a six-speed converter in the 81kW PureTech turbo S&S version, it optimises fuel consumption while heightening the sensations of driving the car. For more ease and enjoyment, quickshift technology makes frequent gear changes swift and fluid.
A reduction in internal friction, teamed with converters that lock to avoid slippage, means its yield (energy efficiency) virtually equals that of a manual gearbox. For you, this means exceptional performance and fuel efficiency.
Designed for drivability and performance, PEUGEOT PureTech engines combine efficiency with cutting-edge technology.
It takes the best that the market has to offer and finds the perfect balance between torque and power at low revs. This advance in technology generates a 25% saving in fuel consumption and reduces CO₂ emissions compared to a vehicle with equivalent power and torque.
Combined with the automatic EAT6 6-speed gearbox, the 81kW PureTech turbo with Stop and Start technology emits CO₂ emissions of only 104 g/km, making it the benchmark for automatic petrol engines in the segment.
The PureTech e-THP turbo petrol engine is the 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 International Engine of the Year in the 1.0l to 1.4l category.
The ultra-light body structure of the 208 was designed to absorb the maximum energy from various types of impact – minimising the consequences for those inside and outside the car. The result is a tough but lightweight vehicle (from 975 kg depending on the version chosen) with greater agility, optimised fuel consumption and even more driving enjoyment for you.
