When it comes to choosing a commercial vehicle to complement your business activity, it pays to choose a name you can trust and rely on. Not many manufacturers have a legacy for developing high-quality commercial vehicles quite like Peugeot, and its compact and smooth-driving Peugeot Partner represents another addition to the range that can help businesses large and small. A small van with plenty of appeal, this latest edition is economical and surprisingly versatile, meaning those navigating tight urban streets will find it the perfect partner for day-to-day activities.
At Vanwise Group in Dunstable, Harlow, and Maidstone, we always aim to provide business motorists with the very best used vehicles, as well as tips, advice, and information on those models we make available. Take a look at our Peugeot Partner review today to learn more about this slick commercial vehicle.
Having undergone a refresh as recently as 2015, the latest iteration of the Peugeot Partner continues to look smart and contemporary in its exterior appearance. And, whether in L1 or L2 long editions, the Partner provides the same high-quality construction and effortless style synonymous with the Peugeot name.The appearance is simple but stylish, but also one that will prove complementary to your own business image - notably that is a quality and reliable performer.
You will doubtless notice from one glance at the Partner that the model has been designed with convenience in mind. From the asymmetrical split rear doors and the sliding side door on selected models, you can access the vehicle with ease. Trim levels, meanwhile, include S, SE, and Professional, and optional roof heights work to provide added practicality to the vehicle.
Arguably the greatest virtue of the Peugeot Partner is that it’s a simple cargo van that knows what it does, and does it with aplomb. There are no egregious design touches that have been added to make the vehicle stand out, nor do the exterior dimensions allude to more interior space than is actually available. Instead, the Partner simply does its job well, and does it while looking great.
So, what of the interior? If the design of the Peugeot Partner has been crafted to look unassuming from the outside, the cabin has been carefully put together to be intuitive and effortless to drive while also providing exceptional levels of comfort. Those long working days on the road will thus be far more relaxing than ever before.
Space is abundant in the cabin, meaning that you, your passengers, and any work essentials you need to keep with you are well catered for. Plus, with a raised driving position enabling you to enjoy a commanding view of the road, height and reach adjustable steering to help you get into the perfect position, and dashboard-mounted gear lever, the considered arrangement of the cockpit is not so much car-like, but definitely tailored for the commercial motorist.
Technology throughout the model will also play an integral role in improving your working day. A seven-inch touchscreen is available on selected models and provides you with access to a selection of communication, information, and entertainment features such as satellite navigation and music streaming. Plus, manual or automatic air conditioning can help ensure you create the perfect working environment every time.
Before buying any commercial vehicle, it’s vital that you do your research on the available load space. With the Peugeot Partner, the load length and load capacity available across the range varies according to the vehicle type you choose: L1, L2, or crew van. That said, each model also features innovative Multi-Flex bench seating for the ultimate flexibility, with the modular arrangement enabling you to free up additional room as and when required.
In terms of load space itself, both the L1 and L2 can comfortably accommodate two Euro-pallets, while the payload capacity is 850kg and 750kg respectively. One or two sliding doors can be included as additional extras, while the 180-degree opening of the rear doors means loading and unloading the Peugeot Partner is simple.
The ride comfort provided by the Peugeot Partner has been lauded by many experts, with the smooth driving ideal for anyone looking commercial commutes that are as relaxing as can be. Much of this can be attributed to the EGC six-speed automated manual transmission that comes for a small additional cost but which delivers great value.
In relation to the engine range, the Partner offers efficient diesel options that are economical and emit only low levels of CO2. The 1.6-litre BlueHDi 100 diesel engine with Start and Stop technology, for example, is capable of up to 68.9mpg and emissions as low as 108g/km. For those with real eco-conscious sensibilities, meanwhile, the Partner Electric provides zero emissions motoring and a range of up to 105 miles on a single charge.
With so many options available, and such practical and effortless motoring to be enjoyed, the Peugeot Partner represents a great choice of commercial vehicle for businesses large and small.
