    A 308 with this engine gets 0-100 in 10.8s and a 195 kph max, I would have expected better figures from the 208 since it's lighter.

    One second may not seem that much in acceleration time but it is significant for a 1.6 120Hp non turbo wich does not offer much torque...

    I do not know how different the gearing and final drive is on the 208 but it may well be taller based on the lighter weight in order to increase economy and still give better performance...

    The E-HDI looks fairly decent - impressive economy with decent power for a car that size!

    I hope the E-HDi is available with a manual transmission and not just EGS only.

    Why is this type of transmission hated that much ?
    It is supposed to give you the performance and economy of a manual without the need to use the left foot.

    the powercuts when shifting are quite severe (at least in the 508) and that makes it not nice to drive

    AFAIK if you lift your foot off the accelerator pedal when shifting, shifts become much smoother and power cuts become relatively unnoticed.

    Drove a C4 Picasso version (2.0 HDi) and it was fine, other than in reverse (where it couldn't decide to engage or release the clutch).

    The dual-clutch transmission is still a few years away yet, but they appear to be working on it.

    Transmission investments

    It's disappointing there is no word on the 1.2l 3 cyl turbo engine in this line up.

    I found 1st to 2nd shift to be too slow for my liking, and generally shifts were only reasonably smooth when the box was in sport mode. Auto mode was worse. This was my experience with EGS in the 508 and 308.

    So I don't need to use my left foot now? How gay is that? Lets make cars so automated that we dont have to do anything except sit in them.
    Changing gears is part of driving and thats why I dislike auto's. They only serve to disconnect you from the experience of driving.
    If you want an auto - go buy a Toyota.
    I have a Peugeot because I like to drive a car, and that requires changing gears.
    Fecking auto's - phtttt.

    why would you call driving an auto "gay?"

    I am gay and prefer to drive a manual.

    I have owned 18 cars and only one was an auto.

    Please think twice before using the word "gay" as a generic term of abuse.

    Some of your fellow froggers are gay you know.

    The engine lineup is an indication that the car is still too heavy. The 205 GTI 115, on 115 HP, would do 0-100 in a second less than the 208 120 HP "official" figure, so this does not bode well for a car that probably won't be anywhere near the best hot hatches like the Renaultsport Mégane.

    don't blame it on the weight because the 208 is 140 kg lighter then the 207, so it's weight will be around 1000 kg. Not far from the weight of a 205 gti.
    I think it will be more the gear ratios to blame to get lower fuel consumption.

    Sorry, if I offended anyone... harden up princess!

    I was referring to unusually happy people, rather than homosexuals so stop jumping to conclusions.
    Besides, I'm a kiwi and if I got upset every time I was accused of being overly amorous with sheep I wouldn't be such a happy chap.
    Perhaps I should have added... "not that there's anything wrong with that"
    Anyway, I love all people regardless of the team they play on. Don't take things so seriously, lifes too short.

    I think you will find that the 205 GTi was around 950Kg and it had a really fun close ratio 5 speed box. The 208 three door is around 1100 Kg and I would not be suprised if the gears were taller. Let's wait for the 208 Gti before we compare....

    True enough, though I think the 205 GTI was well under 900 kg.
