Peugeot Partner

The Peugeot Partner is a panel van, often considered to be a leisure activity vehicle. A smaller sister to the midsized Peugeot Expert, the Peugeot Partner is in fact almost identical to the Citroën Berlingo.

Is it practical?
Think of a box: it’s incredibly versatile and useful for carrying almost anything. The Peugeot Partner used the same shape and concept for its design. This means it’s a brilliantly practical work partner. Depending on the model you have, you’ll have up to 3,000 litres of carrying space. Oddly, the smaller L1 Partner has an 850kg payload capacity, while the longer L2 version is limited to 750kg. However, the longer L2 is more likely to come with a back seat and a sliding door. Not all versions do. By the same token, unlike many of their competitors, Peugeot were wise enough to create a three-seater cabin in some models. As the Partner is effectively only available as a manual, the three-seat cabin is based around necessity, not comfort, with piggy-in-the-middle having to contend with the awkwardness of the gear stick.

How does it drive?
The four-cylinder engines of the Peugeot Partner have high torque at low revs, especially with a diesel engine. In other words? An extra tick for practicality. It’s also available with CNG and electric engines. The Partner drives relatively smoothly in all versions, with decent emissions and consumption that lands between good and impressive depending on the engine.

The verdict 
Bidding on a used Peugeot Partner is a great idea; they’re super-reliable vehicles with simple interiors designed to stand up to heavy commercial use. Which means that even when they’re used, Peugeot Partner panel vans will still look and perform at the top of their game.
