Glad they have finally introduced the auto version of the 1.2, but I do enjoy the 1.6 petrol with the well matched autobox.

Is 130ps enough for car this heavy?

They've sold enough Peugeot 5008 with that engine!

Yes it is. I'm more than happy with mine. Plenty of power when required, cruises at 70mph at just over 2K revs and returns me an average 40mpg.

I was surprised that they used the 1.2L engine in the overseas models of the C5 Aircross, here in NZ it is only offered in the 1.6L petrol engine with either 6 speed or 8 speed auto.

I guess it's not the engine that is dropped, it's only the requirement for 180PS engine if you want auto transmission.?
The 180PS petrol engine is still available here (EU).
