An extended range of Peugeot Partner vans will be available for Aussie buyers in 2022, catering for different commercial uses
Three longer-wheelbase variants will be added to the Peugeot Partner van lineup in Australia for 2022 across City, Pro and Premium grades.
As the small van grade for the Peugeot range, the Partner offers a more compact, city-sized alternative to the more popular midsize vans that ply their trade on Australian roads.
Now available in short and long wheelbase, the Partner is built upon the EMP2 platform that underpins the passenger cars in the Peugeot range.
The short wheelbase variant has a turning radius of just 10.82m and a total load capacity of 629-660kg. The long wheelbase version has a turning radius of 11.43m and 898-1000kg maximum load capacity.
Maximum volume is 3.9 cubic metres which expands to 4.4 cubic metres in long pro and long Premium models.
The entry level City variants come equipped with a 1.2-litre four cylinder turbocharged petrol engine which produces 81kW of power and 205Nm of torque when mated to a manual gearbox. For the automatic transmission version, power is upped to 96kW/230Nm.
Fuel economy for the 1.2-litre in manual guise is 5.8l/100km and for the automatic, 5.9l/100km.
Pro and Premium variants in the Partner range also receive the higher spec 96kW engine and both are fitted with an eight speed automatic transmission.
Notably, diesel power does not feature across the Partner lineup.
Let’s break down what is offered with each model in the Partner lineup.
In the entry level City guise, the Partner includes a 5-inch infotainment display, manual air conditioning, reversing camera, reverse sensors, passenger side sliding door and two front seats.
Safety features include six airbags, electronic stability control, electronic braking assist and hill start assist.
The middle Pro variant receives underseat storage, a flip down table, automatic air conditioning, automatic wipers, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto infotainment system with 8-inch touchscreen, three seats including bench and single for driver, dual sliding doors and an electronic park brake.
Safety features include six airbags, ESC, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, hill start assist, lane departure warning, lane keep assist and speed sign recognition.
The Premium features the above features plus a leather steering wheel, 16-inch alloy wheels, electronic folding mirrors, keyless entry with push-button start and body painted rear bumper, side mouldings, side mirrors and door rails.
Note that full specifications will be revealed closer to the car’s launch.
