Cycle & Carriage France Pte Ltd, the local distributors for French marque, Citroen, is pleased to announce a full range of turbodiesel passenger cars that will remain under COE Category A classifications despite the previously announced tweak taking effect from the start of the month.

The range includes the 1.6-litre e-HDi 115 EGS equipped C4 and C5 models and 1.6-litre e-HDi 115 ETG equipped DS4 and DS5. Joining the range would be the upcoming 1.6-litre e-HDi 115 ETG C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso MPVs.

Citroen's turbodiesel range promises to deliver drivers with key benefits - starting with a $15,000 Carbon Emissions-Based Vehicle Scheme (CEVS) rebate that is applicable across the full turbodiesel range. Furthermore, maintenance and fuel costs are reduced with Citroen's turbodiesel fleet - while not hindering mileage of up to 25km/L.

The cars offer the highest torque delivery under Category A with 270Nm for a better drive and lower fuel consumption and the automaker assures the cars can be refuelled in Malaysia. The range of models are also equipped with Stop&Start technology for greater fuel savings and reduced carbon emissions.

 
To top it off, Citroen offers a five year/100,000km warranty for all Citroen e-HDi turbodiesel models.

Wow, CAT A car with 270Nm torque? Hmm, no wonder the CAT A will not drop despite the tweaks

These diesel engines are really very torquey, much more than the same petrol variants.

 

However, the noise from diesel clattering may be disturbing

How will driving a high torque, low power car feel like?

 

Fast pick-up, but slow when upping higher gears?

It's like driving a lorry lor. Got power. Step somemore no speed.

 

Hahah.

The car can accept MY diesel...but MY station dun wanna sell...hahahahaha....ok lah...max 20L nia. So every 500km top up lor...(agar based on claimed 25km/L FC)

 

But high torque coming in at low end is damn shiok. Driven one 320d in MY before...the 400Nm comes in low at 1,500rpm...even a 530i had problem keeping up in traffic light sprints...and the fuel consumption is woo lah lah...given 270Nm for this car...sprint to legal speed of 90-100kmh should not be a problem...

French cars have always looked good on paper but not in reality. I know many friends who's french cars spend 30% of their lifespan in the workshop.
