Ahh yes, the good old PS trick
I have the original brochure for the Laguna II, and in that, they clearly use bhp figures. Likewise, in the literature I've seen before, they tend to stick with BHP for power and Nm for torque.
The Germans are notorious for using PS as opposed to BHP though. I wonder why that could be, given that PS literally stands for "Pferdestarken" (literally - horse power, but apparently its ever so slightly
different...something like 1bhp = 1.01PS or something stupid).
I suspect it's either an engine map difference (as you said). I can't believe they'd go to the trouble of using essentially the same engine, and then start (mis)quoting PS figures.
