PEUGEOT has revealed the all new PARTNER combining practicality with a dynamic drive, a stress-free mobile office and safety for all professionals. Whatever your requirements, the all-new PEUGEOT PARTNER has the answer for you.

On first impressions, the all-new PEUGEOT PARTNER's interior is immediately compelling, the finish is in every aspect equal to that of a passenger vehicle. It is fitted with cutting-edge technology which creates a stimulating, instinctive and safe driving experience.

PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®, of which over 4,000 000 units have been sold, is now being fitted on a commercial vehicle for the first time. So much more than a new feature, PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® is becoming a must for professional users who are constantly seeking ways to improve the quality of the service they provide. An optimum ergonomic layout, tip-top comfort and exemplary safety systems make for an intuitive driving experience.

The handling is swifter and less tiring on the all-new Peugeot PARTNER thanks to the compact multi-function steering wheel, and a head-up display is available as standard. An 8" capacitive touch screen located in the centre of the dashboard in line with the driver's vision provides direct and permanent access to key comfort functions such as radio, navigation, vehicle settings and telephone. 

All-new PEUGEOT PARTNER has a generous load capacity and payload and is also fitted with an Overload Alert System - a new on-board technology to guarantee total safety. The mass is automatically measured when the ignition is switched on and can also be measured from the load area when the vehicle is stationary. Once 90% of the total load capacity has been reached, a white LED lights up on the control button; if the maximum authorised load is exceeded a yellow LED lights up, supplemented by a visual warning on the dashboard.

By avoiding vehicle overload, the handling is not compromised and associated dangers, such as burst tyres, loss of control of the vehicle, premature wear of components, higher fuel consumption and the risk of being fined may be avoided, this equipment is available as an option.

Depending on the version, PARTNER has electric parking brake, adaptive cruise control, extended traffic sign recognition, active lane keeping assist, driver attention warning, active safety brake, a tow-bar stabiliser, automatic headlight dipping, blind spot monitoring and hands-free entry and start.

The fundamental needs of professional users were the main focus of the all-new PEUGEOT PARTNER. The dimensions are perfectly in line with the segment, with a length of 4.40m for the Standard version ensuring an optimum effective usable length of 1.81m. With a capacity ranging from 3.30m3 to 3.80m3 depending on the version, this is sufficient to accommodate 2 Europallets. The Long version, which is 4,75m long (+35cm), provides even greater load capacity. The effective length of this version is 2.16m and a load capacity ranging from 3.90m3 to 4.40m3.

Depending on the version, all-new PEUGEOT PARTNER may be fitted with a Multiflex adaptable bench seat, which allows three people to sit in the front, plus provides a flat roof, 400l more load capacity and an effective length of up to 3m for the Standard version and 3.35m for the Long version. A writing table is integrated in the fold-down central seat back to convert the vehicle into a mobile office and it features a padlocked storage area underneath the central seat.

All-new PEUGEOT PARTNER also features a range of efficient and economical engines. Petrol engines feature two versions of the 1.2 PureTech engine; a PureTech 130 S&S with EAT8 eight-speed automatic transmission (available in 2019) and a PureTech 110 S&S with manual six-speed gearbox. PureTech engines are fitted with a Gasoline Particulate Filter to reduce particle emissions.

Three diesel engines are available; a BlueHDi 130 S&S with manual 6-speed gearbox or EAT8 eight-speed automatic transmission, a BlueHDi 100 S&S with manual five-speed gearbox and a BlueHDi 75 with manual five-speed gearbox. Diesel engines are all fitted with a FAP particle filter and a selective catalytic reduction system (SCR). This technology reduces emissions as soon as the ignition is switched on. 

A range of options can be added to supplement these versions, ensuring the needs of all professionals are met. Last but not least, a full conversion range is planned with our partners: emergency and assistance vehicles, specific building sector vehicles, refrigerated vehicles, etc.

All-new PEUGEOT PARTNER will be available to order from Autumn 2018. Call Richard Chambers today on 07718 385056 to discuss all your Business & Van needs.
