9th May 2008
The 1.6-litre 4-cylinder direct injection, twin turbo petrol engine jointly developed by PSA Peugeot Citroën and BMW Group has won the 1.4 to 1.8 litre category at the International Engine of the Year Awards 2008 for the second year running.
Currently fitted in the Peugeot 207 and 308, this engine is the largest of a family of engines ranging between 120 and 175 hp. This engine family will equip other models in the Peugeot and Citroën ranges, and in the BMW MINI and 1 Series.
Announced in July 2002, the co-operation between PSA Peugeot Citroën and BMW Group has applied the strengths of each partner to solve the conflict between advanced engine technologies and cost pressures in the small and compact car segment.
All major components for these engines are made at a dedicated €330 million, 60,000m2 production facility at PSA Peugeot Citroën’s Française de Mécanique plant in Douvrin.
