Aerodynamics play a large part in the environmental performance of a vehicle: more aerodynamic cars need less fuel to get moving which in turn means they produce less pollution. Typically, a 10% improvement in aerodynamics ultimately results in a 2.5% drop in CO2 emissions.

Which is why Peugeot spends a great deal of time in the wind tunnel when developing a new model to make it as sleek and streamlined as possible. For example, we have managed to reduce the 308 hatch's drag co-efficient to a low 0.29.
