One of PEUGEOT's primary concerns as a car manufacturer is its commitment to environmental conservation, which for us goes hand in hand with driving enjoyment. The PEUGEOT engineers and designers have risen to the challenge, coming up with a whole range.


1.6 THP Engines

The 1.6-litre THP heart that provides life to the all-new Peugeot 3008 and 5008 is an award-winning piece of engineering and for good reason - combining the advantages of high pressure direct injection and advanced turbocharger technology.


EAT6 automatic gearbox

The EAT6i gearbox is a 6-speed automatic gearbox, optimising consumption and driving sensations. It has been designed to drastically reduce carbon emissions while offering a high quality of driving.


With the Stop & Start function i, available on petrol engine and diesel engines, combine ecological performance with enjoyable driving!

Adapted to urban driving, the Stop & Start function automatically switches off the engine every time the car stops, for example when waiting at a red light or at a road junction. When the driver wants to continue their journey, restarting is performed instantly and smoothly.

This technology has several advantages: greater control over consumption (- 15% in dense urban traffic, compared to a conventional vehicle), a reduction in carbon emissions (zero emissions during engine cut-out phases) and silence when not moving.

In order to suit all driving modes, the Stop & Start function can be deactivated.


The EMP2 platform i has a modular construction i central to the design and manufacture of the new mid-range and high-end models of the PSA Group which in particular provides:

  • A modular architecture to meet the specific requirements of the main world markets (4- and 5-door saloons, estates, monospaces, notchbacks, SUVs, convertibles and coupés)
  • A diversity of engines and gearboxes on a single platform (4-cylinder, hybrid, 4 wheel drive, etc.)
  • A lightening of the cars and a reduction in carbon emissions while improving rigidity, security and driving pleasure thanks to its innovative lightweight materials like steel, composite materials, aluminium for ground links and cutting-edge processes (such as hot stamping and laser welding)
  • Innovative technological choices optimising steering pleasure, handling, interior comfort and safety (composite floor, ultra-low rolling resistance tyres, etc.)
  • More freedom of style (large wheels, variability of wheelbases, low bonnet and low driving position, etc.) regardless of the silhouette (SUV, saloon, etc.)

The EMP2 platform has been used to produce the new Peugeot SUV 3008 and 5008 and the new Traveller and Expert.
