This air is essential in cooling the engine, especially at top speeds. The rear does not show any sign of the exhaust system, instead, there are six holes near the bottom of the rear bumper, those holes acts as the exhaust.

Peugeot Onyx – Under the Hood:

The Peugeot Onyx has a 3.7 liter HDi V8 engine which is integrated with the hybrid technology. This V8 engine is a monster that can pump out a massive 600 hp. The engine is cooled by open ducts that begin at the roof of the car. The engine transmits the power to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.  The hybrid technology in Onyx Peugeot recovers all kinetic energy that is lost during braking and stores it in Lithium –ion batteries. This stored energy is automatically released to the car during acceleration and boosts the engine power by an extra 80 horsepower.
