2011 Peugeot Hoggar

Peugeot Hoggar is the first model to use a “combined” platform, based on the chassis of the Brazilian 207 and that of the Partner. This is the arrival of the “pick-up by Peugeot”, a model entirely designed, developed and manufactured in Brazil, intended for sale on the Brazilian market, which strengthens Peugeot’s image as national manufacturer. The Peugeot Hoggar will be launched in Brazil on 15th May 2010, in three equipment levels and two Flex Fuel engine options: 1.4 and 1.6.

The interior of the Peugeot Hoggar pick-up, the fourth member of the 207 range in Brazil, has the same contemporary design as the other models in the family. There is another advantage to the model’s design: the “combined” platform meant that the marque’s engineers, without compromising the cab’s spacious interior, could produce a load space with the largest capacity of its segment, i.e. 1,151 litres. With Pirelli Chrono 175 65 R14T tyres, they have endowed the Peugeot Hoggar with the biggest live load of all its competitors, 742 kg in the X-Line version (660 kg for the XR and 650 for the Escapade).

While it is the range entry model, the X-Line pick-up, with a working vocation, is equipped with the Flex 8V 1.4 (1,360 cc) engine, developing maximum power of 82 h.p. when operating on alcohol and 80 h.p. on petrol, at 5,250 rpm. It is economic, with maximum torque of 12.85 mkg at 3,250 rpm, whatever fuel is used.

The next level up from the X-Line, the intermediate XR version, also equipped with a Flex 1.4 engine, has an extra touch of sportiness, starting with the front headlights set in a black mask that accentuates the model’s feline look. The model boasts another equally modern aesthetic element. Two longitudinal bars of innovative design run around the cab. Designed to help when attaching loads, they also facilitate access to the cab, assisted by the side step. They support two dual position transverse bars that can hold certain items and can take a maximum weight of 70 kg.

The high-end version, the Escapade, is equipped with the Flex 1.6 (1,587 cc) engine which develops maximum power of 113 h.p. on alcohol and 110 h.p. on petrol at 5,600 rpm, with 15.5 mkg maximum torque at 4,000 rpm in alcohol mode.
