As always, Peugeot Australia have special offers available to all prospective buyers of sophisticated and economical vehicles.
The offers start with the 207 and work their way through the 308 and 407.
One of the best things about Peugeot is the choice of environmentally friendly engines on offer. All are capable of excellent city and country mileage meaning savings at the bowser, not just the environment.
One of my favourite drives was the 207 Le Mans with the 1.6l HDi engine. Not only does it go well, it doesn’t sound like a turbo diesel. It was smooth and refined, with plenty or urge at low rpm.
For all this and all updates, keep an eye on our website for Peugeot offers on the Peter Warren Peugeot specials page.

As if that’s not enough, the driving quality of this car remains excellent because the TDCi engine is able to produce 66kW of power and 200 Nm of torque. And the torque is where it is at. It enables the Fiesta to perform very well.
And to maximize the fuel-efficiency of the car, Ford engineers conducted enhancement, modifications, and improvements on the standard Fiesta. For example, the suspension has been lowered and rear air deflectors were placed. In addition, the car model uses low resistance tyres that are low-rolling as well.
The impressive reduction in fuel-usage was made possible through the following:

• Longer final drive gear ratio
• Improved aerodynamics
• Weight reduction
• The addition of green shift indicator
Although the current range of imported models are already highly competitive in terms of CO2 emissions, more and more car buyers are seeking the lowest possible vehicle emissions as a key to ‘why buy’.” Indeed, there might be a lot fuel-efficient car models but it is already quite apparent that the Ford Fiesta ECOnetic will be the star with its 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi engine and coated Diesel Particulate Filter (cDPF).
With all these features, the New Ford Fiesta is being promoted as the attractive and affordable solution to car buyers who prioritise low emission performance. The favourable fuel-consumption demonstrates Ford’s continual dedication to bringing the best alternatives to the environmentally concious buyer.
