The PEUGEOT Partner has won the What Van? Light Van of the Year award for the second year running. Partner was launched in the UK at the beginning of 2019, having already won the prestigious 2019 International Van of the Year award.
James Dallas, Editor of What Van?, commented: “Like its stablemates, the Partner is a smooth operator and remains ahead of the game in the light van sector. It features a choice of excellent engines, including the responsive and frugal 1.5-litre BlueHDi diesel at 75hp, 100hp or 130hp. Urban operators in particular may also wish to consider the 1.2-litre three-cylinder Puretech petrol engine. A USP of the Partner is the slick iCockpit interior carried over from its passenger car line-up.”
The complete Partner range includes Panel Van models in two different lengths – Standard and Long, and is available in four different trim levels: S, Grip, Professional and Asphalt. Crew Van is the latest addition to the Long range and offers three additional seats with a folding bulkhead to give the flexibility of different seating and load-carrying layouts as required.
Standard equipment for all panel van models includes ESC with Hill Start Assist, ABS braking, including emergency brake assist, remote central locking with deadlocks and separate locking for the cab, a full bulkhead, driver’s airbag, electric front windows, electrically adjustable door mirrors, full size spare wheel, PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® with head-up display and compact steering wheel, automatic headlights, DAB Radio, Bluetooth® and USB socket, Peugeot Connect SOS and Assistance, six load area tie-down hooks and an overhead storage shelf in the cab.
Safety options include front and rear parking sensors, the award winning Overload Indicator which can inform the driver if the vehicle has exceeded its maximum weight and Surround Rear Vision, which includes passenger side and rear cameras to provide visibility all around the vehicle.
