Hi,

Anyone tried out the new 130HP engine with manual transmission and if so is it good? I am thinking of buying a new 2008 next year but will only do so if it performs better than my current one, which is very good.

I've had mine (Emerald Crystal Urban Cross) for almost 2 months and I'm VERY happy with it. The engine is very responsive throughout the rev range. It is also very quiet, even at speed. The gearbox was a bit notchy at first but seems to be improving (or is it me?).

<div style="line-height: 16.8px;">I would definitely recommend this engine.

The Urban Cross is the 110bhp version with a 5-speed box rather than the 6-speed in the 130bhp versions. Not driven the Puretech 130 yet but it's performance looks superb.

I've got the Pure Tech 110HP with manual transmission and I am really pleased with the performance, far better than I expected.

Over here in France, the Urban Cross is available with a wider choice of engines, including the Puretech 130 w/ 6-speed manual 'box.

Cheers,

Apologies, didn't realise you are in France

I couldn't wait for the 130 Pure Tech 6A so bought an e-HDI 5M instead.
I think I made a mistake by not waiting as, if the newer 2008 has the same steering as our new 308 130/6A I'd be a lot happier.
The steering on our 2008 Outdoor feels too wooden at speed and apparently there is nothing I can do to lighten it.

So it's a 2008 with the Pure Tech 130hp triple, I take it?.
Out 308 has it and I agree - love it!

Got the 110hp triple Pure Tech and it's soeasy and responsive to drive. It amazes me it's only a 1.2. This car wasn't even in the running when I was looking to get a new car. It was either going to be a Clio, Polo or Capture. Been driving Peugeots for years and fancied a change. Then got intoa 2008at a Citroen/Peugeot dealer when I was looking at a DS3 and I was impressed. Not looked back since.

I too can't quite believe that this puny 1.2 triple can do with half the revs what an average 2.4 does and being lighter, similar power to weight.

Hello there,
You might be interested in this document, from the PSA web site. It contains a few bits of technical information, including the torque curve of the engine (flat between 1,750 and 3,000rpm!).

Good stuff.
I'd like to know more about the 'diamond' application to some bearing surfaces.
