The Peugeot 108 shows up with an alluring selection of petrol fed triples.

1.0L VTi making 68 bhp as the entry level option (97g/km of CO2)
1.0L e-VTi makes the same 68 bhp yet reduces CO2 to 88g/km
1.2L VTi making 82 bhp as the top option (99g/km CO2)

5 speed Manual or 5 speed Auto. No diesel is expected.

No diesel motor is a real disappointment.

the difference between a small 1.0 diesel and 1.0 petrol is negligible. Direct injection has made small petrols SO much more efficicent. Not to mention diesels have an extra premium involved and are heavier...

What do you think will be the most popular engine option? Will people stay basic with the entry engine or will most people put out for the hybrid or the 1.2 VTi?

the 1.0 e-VTi is not a hybrid, its stop-start. That engine was actually co deved with BMW...

Ahh so its just a brand of engine

here are the highlights for the lazy

The PureTech engine family features the latest technologies to meet customer expectations as closely as possible, including:

A timing system with two overhead camshafts and four valves per cylinder, controlled directly by two mechanical push rods for enhanced fill-up and efficiency
Continuous variable hydraulic timing for the intake and exhaust camshafts, for better performance at low and medium engine speeds and optimised fuel consumption
On the VTi 82 version, a counter-rotating balancer shaft, for reduced vibration and quieter operation
Electronic management to optimise battery charge, with freewheel alternator operation used to a maximum when it requires no energy expenditure.
To achieve these results, PureTech development called for a number of changes, chief among which were:

Downsizing (reduction in capacity)
The choice of three cylinders rather than four
Reduced weight and more compact design
Reduced internal friction
Optimised combustion.

The present trio have only had the Toyota engine up to now (although there was a diesel available in the C1 for a while). Now there will be the choice of a PSA engine- the 1.2L in the C1/108. The Aygo not offering the 1.2L.

well small triple GDI engines are bridging the gap between petrol and diesel efficiency to a degree. I'd say thats relatively revolutionary.... Problem is diesel still has more potential energy stored no matter what wizard gizmos they apply to petrol engines...
