Many of us, we have echoed the new fashion of the engines of 1.5 liters. Although we know in the gasoline, it is in the turbodiesel is where most striking; since normally replaces an engines of similar displacement.
Already live it in Ford, apparently also joins the Volkswagen group and now; It’s the turn of the PSAgroup. We know that there will be two versions, a DV5RD whose power will be comprised between 75 and 100 HP and other DV5RC in which the maximum reach of the 130 HP…
The PSA group as a whole is developing some new mechanics called DV 5 completely from aluminum and 8 valves per cylinder. They promise to improve the performance of mechanical 1.6 BlueHDI, which will be replaced. The new engines will suffer a reduction of engine displacement staying at 1.5 liters; However, they will remain tetracilindricos. Therefore, they highlight by absence of excessive vibrations and soft start.
In addition, to improve performance, is committed to an increase in pressure of the injectors along with the incorporation of the system SCR (Selective Catalytic reduction), which; It will directly come built-in on the vain engine. Altogether, the improvements promise tighter consumption and a decrease in the emission of particulate pollutants (NOx emission is reduced by up to 90% and between 2 and 4% of CO2).
As we mentioned earlier; there will be two versions of the same engine. A DV5RD with 75 and 100CV powers that be incorporated turbo fixed geometry and a DV5RC who also bet on the incorporation of a turbo but on this occasion, of variable geometry. The latter will yield a power of 130CV.
Naturally, its incorporation will depend on models produced by Peugeot and Citroen DS automobile. Their placing on the market is expected to occur throughout the year 2017; which means that we will not have to wait too long to try it with our own hands and make you our impressions…
