A 2.2 L (2,155 cc) version was also built. It was first used in the Talbot Tagora. Bore was 91.7 mm (3.61 in) and stroke was 81.6 mm (3.21 in) making a very oversquare design. This engine is sometimes confused with the 2,165 cc Renault/Peugeot Douvrin engine, but the displacement of the Simca 180 2.2-litre was slightly less. Later, this engine was also turbocharged, for use in the Citroën BX4TC and Peugeot 505 Turbos as the block was stronger than the Peugeot engine.
