Peugeot, Citroën and DS published consumption actual of their models, it small difference!

As well we anticipate by the end of the past year 2015, the PSA Group had taken the decision to publish the figures of real consumption of the models that make up the different ranges of the group brands. That is to say, Peugeot, Citroën and DS. Although we had to wait until mid-2016 to meet these figures, here I will show, the consumption the real-life models of Peugeot, Citroën and DS. And the truth, what a difference!

In the first place, it should be noted that they are not available the figures of real consumption of all the models of the brand. The PSA Group has decided to publish them for parties and for the end of the year we will know the missing pieces. The study conducted by Transport et Environement (T&E) and France Nature Environement (FNE) and audited by Bureau Veritas, verifies that the fuel consumption figures that you can see below are the actual of these models.

In particular, the tests to which they were subjected these models comprising 25 kilometres by city, 39 for secondary roads and a total of 31 on the highway. In addition, at the time of testing, were used systems such as the air-conditioning while vehicles also had baggage and, in addition to the driver, some passengers.

DS Automobiles - pruebas de consumo de combustible

DS Automobiles has also been provided by the figures of real consumption.

on the other hand, and with the purpose of increasing the confidence of consumers, Peugeot, Citroën and DS have announced that by the end of this year, will be launched on their respective web pages a “simulator of fuel consumption” with the us, a more realistic picture of the figures that will yield a given model under our style of driving.

Gilles Le Borgne, Vice president of R & D PSA Group, has said that the decision to publish the actual data of consumption of their models is a decision-focused convey a greater commitment to transparency did consumers:

“As part of our goal to continually provide more information to customers, the group will publish figures for the other 20 models at the end of the year and will introduce a simulator that will enable customers to reduce their consumption of fuel depending on the driving conditions”.

Peugeot 208

The Peugeot 208 is the model of the PSA Group, whose figures are best adjusted to the data of real consumption.

As well, you can see in the tables below, there are the differences really noticeable between consumption and real figures that Peugeot, Citroën and DS we have been giving during these years. What’s more, some reaching up to 2.7 litres. The differences are especially noticeable in models such as the Peugeot 3008 (old model) while, at the other end of the scale we have the Peugeot 208 as the model that less variation recorded between the previous data and the true.

By the way, in the previous tables we find the following abbreviations: TBRR, UBRR and STD. Refer to the tire type testing was performed of consumption.

  • TBRR = tire low rolling resistance.
  • UBRR = pneumatic, ultra-low rolling resistance.
  • STD = tire normal.
