Depending on the country, from the start of 2008 the C8 was restyled inside and out. At the same time the C8 range was extended, in some countries, with a new HDi diesel engine developing 173 bhp DIN (125 kW or 170 bhp EC), complete with a particulate filter (DPFS) and mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. In the course of
2008, the engine also became available in some countries with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

The new engine completes a range comprising a 2-litre 143 bhp 16V petrol injection engine available with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic gearbox, and two diesel engines, the HDi 120 and the HDI 138 DPFS, both with a 6-speed manual gearbox.

The HDi 173 DPFS is the flagship of Citroën’s range of 4-cylinder HDi engines. A number of features (double parallel sequential turbo and new combustion and injection systems) provide driving pleasure by offering maximum torque of 273 lb/ft at a low 1,500 rpm.

To complete the upgrade, Citroën made changes to the running gear and brakes.

Finally, in addition to the new engine launch, new comfort equipment and driving aids have been added to the C8 range.
