Peugeot’s popular van and Tepee MPV models are being given some new features which will be showcased at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
The changes include new engines and tweaks to the exterior style. All changes will apply to both the family-oriented people carrier and its panel van sibling.
Partner van offering three-different sized wheelbases and a crew van body style option. The Partner Tepee is pretty much the car version of the Partner van, meaning it can function as a spacious family MPV.
As engine technology continues to improve larger vehicles are being given surprisingly low emissions.
For example, the new Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4 uses a diesel-hybrid powertrain to bring CO2 emissions down to as low as 100g/km while still offering four-wheel drive.
The new Partner models use more conventional diesel Euro 5 engines with e-HDi and stop & start technology. This means the Partner Tepee has best-in-class CO2 emissions as low as 125g/km, and the Partner van emissions are as low as 123g/km.
Alongside the new eco-engines the Partner group will benefit from new styling features of which, according to Peugeot, will give it a ‘new modern personality’. This includes tweaks to the front end including a modified grille and some new headlamps.
The new Peugeot Partner van and Peugeot Partner Tepee will be available from mid March 2012 and prices will be announced closer to the launch date.
Peugeot vehicles are available from Perry’s dealerships such as Aylesbury, Bolton and Portsmouth.
