1.4 HDI

ROAD TEST By KEVIN FENIX www.twincam.ie

was hugely impressed with the new Peugeot 208 when I had my first drive in the car at its launch in July. Thus I was eagerly looking forward to the opportunity to put it through its paces over a longer distance with this road test. Suffice it to say I was not disappointed and these latest findings only confirmed my earlier impressions. It is a great little car! The test car came with the 1.4 litre HDi diesel engine, coupled to a five speed manual gearbox. It was equipped to the mid range Active specification. Currently this specification carries a recommended retail price, excluding delivery and associated charges, of â‚Ź18,795. As usual the test programme covered long distances of motorway driving, as well as normal country roads and a lot of city and suburban driving. Our country roads can vary tremendously, from narrow twisting tracks to reasonably wide and straight roads. Thus performance covering things like cruising speeds, acceleration, roadholding, steering and braking, can all be evaluated over a wide range of different conditions.

contd. from page 4

One of the unusual design features of the 208, is its small diameter, low set steering wheel. Most cars these days have a steering wheel diameter of 370 mm, plus or minus 5 mm, but in the case of the 208 it is only 345 mm. It adjusts for both reach and height and is intended to sit comfortably low in your lap, so as to give a clear view of the instrument binnacle at the top of the facia. I found it to give a comfortable driving position with a clear view of the main instruments, as well as the road ahead. Over on the left there is a large round analogue tachometer, with a small engine temperature gauge to its lower left. This is matched by a large round speedometer on the right, with a small fuel level gauge to its lower right. All the gauges have black backgrounds, with white lettering and red needles. Between the two large dials, there is a rectangular digital information panel, showing a variety of selectable information. I particularly like the large digital readout of your actual speed. At the top of the centre

console, there is a large, seven inch, digital screen that is associated with the audio system and various other electronically controlled functions. It serves as the screen for the satellite navigation when that option is fitted. It too is easily seen whilst driving. The audio system has facilities for USB and Bluetooth associated accessories like mobile telephones. Below this screen there are two air outlets, with controls for air conditioning below. Below these heating/ventilating controls there is a large open storage space ahead of the gearlever.

Behind the gearlever, between the two front seat backs, there are two cupholders in the centre tunnel. There are additional controls on the steering wheel for the audio system, Bluetooth, cruise control and speed limiter. The Active specification includes electric front windows and electrically adjustable exterior rear view mirrors. The remote controlled central locking has an automatic locking function once speed rises above 10 kph. The driver’s seat adjusts for reach, height and backrest angle. The front passenger

seat adjusts for reach and backrest angle. The two outer positions on the rear bench seat are equipped with ISOfix fittings for child safety seats. The rear seat backrest is divided 60/40 and folds down onto the seat cushion to provide additional luggage space, or space for longer items that would not normally fit into the regular luggage space. As I have already mentioned, the 208’s overall performance is more than satisfactory for a car of its size. Top speed is 163 kph (101 mph), which is comfortably above the national speed limits in most European countries. On test it cruised comfortably and effortlessly at the maximum speed limit of 120 kph (75 mph) on motorways. Indeed you had to keep a sharp eye on that digital speed indicator, as in passing manoeuvres it would effortless rise above that speed. In suburban traffic it would effortlessly accelerate away from the lights reaching 100 kph (62 mph) in around 13.5 seconds. Of even more interest in these stringent financial times, with ever increasing fuel prices, its fuel

programme. Although it is in the small car segment of the market, the 208 is still a versatile and adaptable family car. When all five seats are required it offers 0.285 cubic metres of luggage space. If that is insufficient for your needs you may like to consider a small trailer. It can tow unbraked trailers of up to 400 kg, or a small caravan or trailer with brakes of up to 750 kg. If towing is a requirement, you are in luck, as the 208 comes with a full size spare wheel. Unlike its predecessor, the

207, where the spare wheel was carried under the car, where it was difficult to access and where it tended to get rusty in conditions where salt is used to keep roads free from icing during severe

winter weather, the 208 has the wheel inside the car, under the luggage floor, where it is easy to reach when needed and protected from the worst of the winter weather.

NEW MODEL REPORT

MINI PACEMAN

MINI have added yet another version to their model range. Basically it is a two door version of their large four door Countryman, but with a rearwards sloping roof. Whatever about the other models in the current MINI range, the Countryman is about as far as you can get from the concept of the original Morris and Austin Mini. Buyers will have the choice of petrol or diesel engines, all four cylinder units, driving six speed

manual or Steptronic automatic/manual gearboxes. In the petrol range the MINI Cooper

4 GREAT BRANDS

Paceman’s 1.6 litre unit delivers 90 kW, which is sufficient for a 0-100 kph acceleration time of 10.4 seconds, with a combined cycle fuel consumption of 47 mpg (6.0 lt/100 km) and exhaust emissions of 140 gm/km. The MINI Cooper D Paceman has a 1.6 litre diesel engine producing 83 kW. Its 0-100 kph acceleration time is 10.8 seconds, but Combined cycle fuel consumption is 64 mpg (4.4 lt/100 km) with exhaust emissions of 115 gm/km. Clearly it would be the better choice from an Irish driver’s point of view. The MINI Cooper S Paceman uses the same 1.6 litre engine as the Cooper, but its power output is increased to 135 kW, which allows a 0-100 kph acceleration time of 7.5 seconds. Fuel consumption increases to 46 mpg (6.1 lt/100 km), giving exhaust emissions of 143 gm/km. The MINI Cooper SD Paceman has a larger 2.0 litre diesel engine. It delivers 105 kW and a 0-100 kph acceleration time of 9.2 seconds. Combined cycle fuel consumption is 61 mpg (4.6 lt/100 km), with exhaust emissions of 122 gm/km. Finally for drivers wanting to exploit the potential performance in all weather conditions and on all road surfaces, there is an ALL4, all wheel drive option, available with Cooper D, Cooper SD and Cooper S versions. Suspension is based on MacPherson struts at the front and a multi-link system at the rear.

Steering is electrically power assisted. Automatic Stop/Start, brake energy regeneration and dynamic stability control are standard across the range. The Cooper S, Cooper SD and Cooper D ALL4 also have traction control and an electronic differential lock as standard. As an option Cooper and Cooper D models have a sport button that tweaks the engine and steering responses. The MINI Paceman is strictly a four seater. The two passenger doors open widely to give an easy access to the luxurious interior. Standard equipment includes air-conditioning, power adjustable front seats and electrically adjustable exterior rear view mirrors. Options have become an important aspect of the new generation MINI, unlike its humble original ancestor. The Paceman offers a list of options that includes, Xenon adaptive headlamps, park distance control, electrically operated glass sun roof, satellite navigation, plus a whole range of fancy electronic applications. The two luxurious rear seats can be folded down to increase luggage capacity when the occasion demands. Standard capacity is 0.330 cubic metres, but this can be increased to 1.080 cubic metres when only two seats are needed. The MINI Paceman, in all its various versions is not expected to arrive on the market until the first or second quarter of 2013. Obviously prices will not be decided until closer to the launch date on the various markets.

1.0 ECOBOOST

ROAD TEST By KEVIN FENIX www.twincam.ie

Back in 1927, the Ford Motor Company ceased production of their immortal Model T and closed the factory while they retooled for its replacement, the Model A. This gave General Motors’ rival, the Chevrolet, the opportunity to catch up and in 1928 it overtook Ford as the top selling make in America. Then to really pile on the pressure, in 1929 Chevrolet came out with a new six cylinder engine, to replace the four cylinder unit it had previously used. Their slogan, “six for the price of a four” gave them an even further advantage as they continued to outsell Ford. Obviously something drastic had to be done.

T

In 1932 Ford brought out their new mono block V8, which they offered as an alternative to the four cylinder in the Model B. This was a fantastic piece of engineering for the time and for the 1933 model Ford dropped the four cylinder engine and the V8 became the only engine on offer. It was such a fantastic success that V8 became almost synonymous with Ford.

This was the standard American Ford engine until after the end of the Second World War. Indeed it has been suggested that it was a vital part of the allies’ success in the War, as it was used to power a wide variety of war machines, from motor boats to tanks, trucks and gun carriers. Quite apart from its wartime success, it was

also highly regarded in motor sporting circles, where it was used in sports cars, hotrods, and racing boats. It remained in production until the middle nineteen fifties, when it was replaced by a new overhead valve design. When Ford of Britain started building a new small car for the British market in 1933, the Model Y, it used a 998 cc side valve, four contd. on page 16

cylinder engine. It too was phenomenally successful, especially in motor sporting circles. During its lifetime it increased in capacity to 1172 cc and finally came to the end of its production life in 1960. It was replaced by another pacesetting design, the 105E. This overhead valve design first appeared in the stunning new Ford Anglia in 1959 and shortly afterwards it replaced the 1172 cc unit in the Ford Prefect. One of the 105E’s design features was its wide 80 mm bore in relation to its 60 mm stroke. It was soon extended to the Cortina range in 1200 and 1500 cc capacities, besides being adopted by Lotus for their Lotus Cortina sports saloon. Now Ford have produced another engineering sensation, the new three cylinder, turbocharged, direct injection, EcoBoost, petrol engine. From a capacity of just 999 cc it produces 74 kW @ 6,000 rpm, with 170 Nm between 1,400 and 4,000 rpm. This gives a specific output of 74.074 kW/litre, which is well up in the super performance category. Most three cylinders I have tested, tended to produce a rather raucous sound as they reached the higher engine speeds. This 1.0 EcoBoost by comparison is smooth, and quiet throughout its speed range. In fact it is so refined, you could be excused for thinking it was a four or six cylinder unit. It has other important virtues too, like a remarkably low fuel consumption, in spite of its good performance, plus a low level of exhaust emissions. In fact its performance in the Focus is on a par with the 1.6 TDCi diesel, its fuel consumption is very similar

and its exhaust emissions are marginally lower. By EU testing standards its Urban cycle fuel consumption is 47 mpg (5.9 lt/100 km), improving to 68 mpg (4.1 lt/100 km) on the Extra urban cycle. This gives a Combined cycle average of 58 mpg (4.8 lt/100 km). Exhaust emissions by the same testing standards are 109 gm/km. Bearing in mind that this third generation Ford Focus is a spacious, comfortable, medium sized family car, its performance levels are more than satisfactory too. Top speed is 185 kph (115 mph), with 0100 kph acceleration in 12.5 seconds. It can tow braked trailers/caravans of up to 100 kg in weight, or unbraked

trailers of up to 635 kg. That should allow for plenty of versatility for most families. The only downside to towing is that the car comes with a Spacesaver spare wheel as standard. Normal luggage space between the rear shelf and the luggage floor is 0.316 cubic metres, while with the rear seats folded and the shelf removed and only two seats needed, it increases to 1.101 cubic metres, when loading to the roof. These dimensions are when a spacesaver is fitted and would be a little lower if a full size spare was needed. The car cruised along motorways at the maximum speed limit with an absolutely effortless ease, with plenty in

reserve for safe overtaking when the occasion demanded. At the other end of the performance scale it drove along twisting, narrow, country roads, with a similar effortless ease. In city traffic the automatic Stop/Start cuts off the engine silently and effortlessly and restarts it again in a similar manner when the traffic starts to move again. The driver’s seat adjusts for reach, height and backrest angle. The steering wheel adjusts for reach and height. It is geared to give 2.5 turns from lock to lock and has a light yet precise feel, which greatly contributes to the overall driving pleasure. The centrally mounted gearlever falls nicely to hand and offers a good precise action. The main instrument binnacle contains four analogue instruments plus a digital information panel. The analogue instruments have white lettering on a black background with light blue needles. The large instrument on the left is the tachometer. Alongside is a small fuel level gauge. The large instrument on the right is the speedometer with a small engine temperature gauge alongside. Above these two small analogue gauges there is a digital information panel that shows a variety of selectable information. The centre console is mainly taken up by the audio and related systems. At the top centre of the facia there is a digital panel that shows the time and the date, while below the large audio panel there are the controls for the heating and ventilating system. The three large knobs control, from left to right, the distribution fan speed, the temperature and the distribution outlets. There are further buttons on the steering

Price as tested 23,155 wheel for audio related and associated functions, while between the spokes on the right hand side, there are further controls for the Bluetooth telephone and cruise control operations. The left hand stalk looks after the direction indicators, main beams and headlamp flashers, while the right hand stalk operates the wipers and washers, front and rear. Below the right hand ventilation outlets, there is a circular switch for the lights and fog lamps. The two front seats are comfortable and well shaped. The 60/60 split rear bench seat, is equally comfortable in its two outer positions, which also have ISOfix fittings for child safety seats. The centre position is flatter and firmer in both the cushion and the backrest. It has a reasonable amount of headroom for adults of average height over short distances, but like most cars in

this segment of the market, a third passenger in the rear seat dramatically reduces shoulder room for all three. It would, however, be satisfactory for young children and young teenagers.

MITSUBISHI AT PARIS Colt/Mirage The replacement for the Colt, is likely to be called the Mirage. It will be making its first appearance in Europe at the Paris Motor Show. It was originally launched in Thailand and Japan in March of this year. It is expected to be on sale in Ireland early in 2013. Great efforts have been made to achieve both performance and fuel economy. With the latter in mind it comes as standard with automatic Stop/Start. It is also light in weight with an unladen weight of 845 kg. In size and weight it is similar to competitors like the Kia Picanto, Suzuki Alto and Nissan Pixo. Power is provided by a 1.2 litre petrol engine with a power output 56 kW and exhaust emissions are expected to be in the region of 100 gm/km.

Outlander Due to arrive in Ireland in November, the new Mitsubishi Outlander, will make its European debut at the Paris Motor Show next week. The latest model is similar in size to its predecessor. It will be offered in five and seven seater versions. The seven seater will have the choice of six speed manual or six speed automatic transmissions. The five seater will only come with the manual gearbox. All versions will be powered by a 2.2 litre diesel engine. By EU testing standards, the most economical will have a Combined cycle fuel consumption of 58 mpg (4.8 lt/100 km), giving exhaust emissions of 126 gm/km. Standard equipment across the range will include Hill Holder assist, anti-lock brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution, emergency brake assist, cruise control, BlueTooth facilities and rear privacy glass.

ALLOY WHEEL REPAIR     

Outlander PHEV The Outlander PHEV is a plug-in hybrid. Besides its petrol engine, it also has twin electric traction motors, one for the front wheels and the other for the rear wheels. The concept behind the design is to give the environmental performance of an electric vehicle with the range of a conventional internal combustion engine and the off-road abilities of a SUV. By EU testing standards it is expected to have a Combined cycle consumption of 200 mpg (1.4 lt/100 km) and an overall range of 880 km (546 miles). The Lithium-ion battery pack has a capacity of 12 kW/h and can offer a range of 55 km (34 miles) on electric power alone. It can be recharged by energy regeneration, petrol power or plug-in facilities. A control switch allows the driver to select Battery Charge Mode at any time. There are three main driving modes. Electric Drive Mode, is all electric, with the front and rear traction motors drawing their energy from the lithium-ion battery pack. Series Hybrid Mode allows the petrol engine to drive a generator that recharges the traction battery pack, while the traction batteries continue to drive the vehicle. Parallel Hybrid Mode uses both petrol engine power and traction motor power combined to drive the car. This is when high speeds or fast acceleration are needed.

MERCEDES CLS SHOOTING BRAKE

Mercedes-Benz revolutionised conventional thinking some years ago, when they launched their CLS, a sporty four seater coupe, but with four doors. Now they have done it again, combining the sporty four seater coupe concept with the versatile and practical estate (station wagon) body style. Compared to the CLS four door coupe, the CLS Shooting Brake is 16 mm longer, but has the same overall width and height. Although it is basically a four seater, with two individual rear seats, it also

has a third seat in the centre in the rear passenger space. Normal luggage space is 0.59 cubic metres, but with the rear seats folded, this can be increased to 1.550 cubic metres. Even though it is a practical estate car, Mercedes-Benz have finished the luggage area in the same premium quality standards as the front and rear passenger compartments. Owners are offered the choice of five interior colours, three different leathers and three

wood finishes. Included as standard are electric power assisted steering, active park assist and adaptive high beam LED headlamps. Air suspension is standard on the rear axle. Power is provided by a choice of four different engines, two petrol and two diesel. Top of the scale is the CLS 500 petrol V8, coupled to a 7G-Tronic transmission. The model most likely to appeal to Irish buyers is the four cylinder CLS 250 CDI diesel, with a

NEWS REPORT

power output of 150 kW. It accelerates from 0100 kph in 7.8 seconds, has a top speed of 235 kph (146 mph), exhaust emissions of 139 gm/km and an EU standards Combined cycle fuel consumption of 53 mpg (5.3 lt/100 km). While prices are not yet available, the CLS Shooting Brake is due to arrive in Ireland towards the end of this year in time for the 2013 registration. Prices will be finalised closer to its arrival date.

Citroen at Paris Citroen will display two limited edition models, the Pure Pearl DS4 and DS5 at the Paris Motor Show next week. The Pure Pearl refers to their Pearlescent White body colour, with high gloss chrome trim and 18’’ diameter alloy wheels. Inside the club leather upholstery is finished in a watch strap style with blue stitching. Standard equipment includes eMyWay satellite navigation, Xenon dual function directional headlamps, plus front and rear park assist. The DS4 Pure Pearl is powered by a 1.6 HDi diesel coupled to an automatic gearbox.

PureTech PureTech is the name given to a range of new three cylinder petrol engines. Currently they are in 1.0 litre and 1.2 litre capacities. The one litre unit delivers 50 kW and is expected to have exhaust emissions of around 99 gm/km. The 1.2 litre engine produces 60 kW and its expected exhaust emissions are 104 gm/km. Obviously their fuel consumption and associated exhaust emissions will depend on the size, weight and gear ratios of the models in which they are installed.

DS3 Electrum DS3 Electrum is a plug-in fully electrically powered car. It has a range of 120 kph (75 miles) with zero emissions. It uses two 65 kW electric traction motors located in the front and driving the front wheels. Power is stored in a 17.5 kWh Lithium-ion battery with a plug-in charging socket located behind the normal fuel filler flap. An 80% charge at a quick charging station takes thirty minutes.

Numero 9 concept Numero 9 (pictured left) is a concept that was first shown at the Beijing Motor Show. It indicates styling concepts that will be seen in three new models in the future. Those models are a premium C segment sedan, a SUV and an executive D segment saloon. Numero 9 is powered by a plug-in hybrid system that offers an emissions free range of 50 km (31 miles). Its internal combustion engine has a power output of 218 kW with exhaust emissions of 39 gm/km. 20 MotorMarket
