Peugeot Australia has confirmed the rollout of its new eight-speed automatic transmission co-developed with Japan’s Aisin, set to debut with the new
308 GT later this month.
The ‘EAT8’ builds on the outgoing six-speeder starting with the obvious addition of two extra ratios, along with “improved shift quality” and a 7.0 per cent improvement in fuel economy according to Peugeot.
Other improvements include enhanced performance of the idle Stop & Start system which now can kick in from 20km/h, a 2.5kg weight reduction compared to the old EAT6, and a coasting function at speeds above 25km/h.
First to get the new transmission will be the limited-edition
Peugeot 308 GT, which never made it to Australia as part of the facelifted range.
Scheduled to arrive in
165kW 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine.
