Their robustness, new modern and connected equipment, as well as a range of more economical and powerful Euro 6 engines, make the new PEUGEOT Partner and Partner Tepee even more appealing. In their BlueHDi 100 S&S (Stop & Start) versions, both have record low CO2 emissions in their segments of just 106 and 109g/km respectively.
Perfectly in tune with their time, they still do not forget the fundamental reasons for their success: durability, flexibility and unequalled modularity combined with benchmark loading capacity and a comfortable cabin.
"Our objective with the new PEUGEOT Partner and Partner Tepee is clearly to support the PSA Peugeot Citroën Group's position as leader in the small van and leisure activity vehicle segments in Europe, and to continue their development in overseas markets." Maxime PICAT, PEUGEOT CEO.
"The PEUGEOT Partner and Partner Tepee have a new look in 2015. New styling, engines and equipment of the latest generation reinforce their appeal, which had already made them benchmarks in their respective segment. They bring the levels of efficiency and modernity expected by customers." Richard Meyer, Commercial Vehicle Range Manager, PEUGEOT.
Assertive design and proven robustness
The design of the front of the new PEUGEOT Partner and Partner Tepee is a mark of strength and expressiveness, continuing the revision of the Light Commercial Van (LCV) range started in 2014 with the new PEUGEOT Boxer.
Paced between the headlamps with redesigned outlines, the new grille carries the PEUGEOT Lion at its centre. It dominates the enveloping new bumper with taut lines, the whole effect giving the new PEUGEOT Partner Van and Partner Tepee a more vertical appearance and even greater perceived robustness.
New reinforced protection is applied to the bumper surface, giving greater robustness to the front and offering the advantage of being easily replaceable in the event of scrape or minor impact. They house the front foglamps and the LED daytime running lamps (DRLs - available according to trim level). The light signature is emphasised by these DRLs, positioned low down at each end of the bumper.
Finally, all trim levels of the new PEUGEOT Partner now benefit from the option of a dual exterior personalisation offered through the Look Pack and the Full Look Pack. As for the new PEUGEOT Partner Tepee, it presents styling that is richer with a painted front bumper from trim level 2, and more robust with a stylish black front bumper, more resistant to knocks, on the Outdoor trim level.
Qualities and reliability vouched for by customers
The robust look of the new front end is an illustration of the intrinsic qualities of the new PEUGEOT Partner and Partner Tepee, both of which benefit from having been put to the test over nearly 20 years by business users and families since the launch of the first generation.
In our surveys, PEUGEOT Partner Tepee customers welcome its spaciousness, practicality in use and comfort, and express their satisfaction with the quality, robustness and finish of the bodywork and the cabin, as well as the reliability of their vehicle. As for business customers, as well as appreciating the load space and modularity of the PEUGEOT Partner Van, they also indicate their satisfaction with the absence of faults, lower running costs and the very good operational value for money.
Robustness put to the test
The robustness and reliability of the PEUGEOT Partner and Partner Tepee has been proven during the development of the vehicle. Some 5 million miles have been covered, representing intensive use in the hands of customers, over the most severe conditions, including:
- Running heavily loaded at high speed;
- A ‘torture' body and suspension test bed, reproducing road surfaces with the most challenging and damaging surfaces: cobblestone, potholes, etc.;
- Tests under sunlight at up to 85°C and under different climatic conditions, alternating between cold and hot (-18°C to +45°C) in a climatic chamber to test the resistance of components and materials;
- Anti-corrosion and sealing tests with vehicles traversing a ford and subjected to salt water spray.
These tests, combined with the experience gained of the vehicles in service with private and business customers over 18 years, ensure that the new PEUGEOT Partner and Partner Tepee have a high level of product quality.
