CITROËN 3-WINS AN INTERNATIONAL ENGINE OF THE YEAR AWARD IN THE 2015 HONOURS
Citroën received an International Engine of the Year award for its 3-cylinder Turbo PureTech engine last week. The engine was named best in the 1.0-litre to 1.4-litre category, crowning a successful run that has already seen 100,000 units roll off the production line at the Française de Mécanique plant in Douvrin, France. The honour was bestowed as part of the 17th annual International Engine of the Year Awards, organised by UK magazine Engine Technology International in Stuttgart, Germany.

The 1.0-litre and 1.2-litre naturally aspirated versions have been manufactured since 2012 and has an annual production capacity of 640,000 units.
