      A 1.6-litre BlueHDi 100 S&S Peugeot 208 has set a new long-distance fuel consumption record, under the supervision of the UTAC. An impressive 2,152 kilometreswere covered on 43 litres of Diesel, with an average fuel consumption of an amazing 2.0 l/100km!

       

      In doing so, the new Peugeot 208 set an absolute long distance fuel consumption record for a standard production vehicle. Several drivers were used to arrive at this result, each taking a turn of 3 to 4 hours at the wheel during the scrutinised test.

       

      This record confirms the technological excellence of the latest Euro6 BlueHDi Diesel engines and their contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
