The Partner offers everything you need for your business and more: cargo capacity, flexibility, driveability, style and minimal operating costs.
When choosing the Partner, you choose more than just a utility van – you buy a vehicle designed to enable you to make the most of your business.
Small businesses often travel big distances, and the driver needs to be comfortable on the road. The Peugeot Partner is not a bad place to spend the day hopping in and out of, delivering and collecting.
It’s a compact commercial vehicle with heaps of space. In fact, getting into a Partner is very much like getting into a passenger car. It has large doors with a bright, airy cabin, thanks to the generous heat-reflective windscreen and big mirrors, a must-have on any van. The seats are comfortable, and the rake and tilt-adjustable steering wheel enables most drivers to find their ideal driving position.
A sliding door gives easy access into the cargo area. The cargo doors can also be locked and unlocked separately to the cabin doors, which can be very useful, especially during stop-start dashes into shops or businesses.
There are loads of storage bins, like the shelf above the driver and passenger area, and the bin under the driver’s seat. It even has a bin on top of the dash in front of the driver, perfect for housing anything from cell phones to A4 notepads.
The Partner boasts a whole range of safety equipment. These include driver and passenger airbags, ABS with EBD, EBA, ESP pre-tensioning seatbelts, and driver seat belt warning alarm.
Automatic drive away locking, power steering, electric front windows along with cruise control and speed limiter, ensure added comfort and peace of mind.
The Partner may be one of the smaller versions in the Peugeot commercial range, but it has a tough, dynamic style. Its fluid, dynamic lines, high wraparound bumper and two-part air intake, side sliding door, large exterior mirrors and protective side trim are just some of the features that elevate the status of this vehicle and make it look as though it means business.
The Partner is a three-seater, thanks to an extra middle seat. The side seat can also be folded down for extended flat floor space that allows one to carry loads of up to 3m in length.
It is also possible to raise the side seat cushion to enable you to put tall loads in the cab area. The middle seat backrest folds down to reveal a writing tablet, while its raised cushion provides access to a securable storage space.
As much space as possible was squeezed into the cargo area, thanks to minimal wheel arch intrusions and an almost square shape.
The payload of 850kg and volume capacity of 3,73m³, coupled with a load length of 1800mm and a width between the wheel arches of 1230mm means the Partner’s loading capacity is among the best in its class.
Under the bonnet is a 1,6 litre diesel engine that produces 66kw at 4000 revs/min and 215Nm at 1500 revs/min coupled to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Ensuring ultimate peace of mind is a 3-year/100 000km warranty and 4-year/60 000km service plan.
