1987-1995 PEUGEOT 405 Mi16 specifications

1987-1995 PEUGEOT 405 Mi16 specifications Classic and Performance Car

The early Mi16 shared its all-alloy 16-valve engine with the Citroën BX 16v. This XU9J4 engine was a mass-produced, normally aspirated 160bhp development of the T16 engine used in Peugeot’s Group B 205 rally car. Sadly, due to cost, PSA switched to a cast-iron block in the post-1992 cars. This heavier engine was also less powerful, but the torque figure was up; giving the car a more useable power band. The 405 range was always praised for its handling and ride, and the Mi16 was no exception, but starting at almost £2000 more than its BX sibling, it was an expensive choice at the time.
