Peugeot has revealed its facelifted Partner van and Partner Tepee and the new model will be fitted with revised Euro 6 engines.
On-sale dates, specifications and prices have not been announced yet, but Peugeot is expected to reveal more details in the next few months.
Six engines power the Partner and Partner Tepee. The most efficient model is a 100hp 1.6-litre unit. It emits 106g/km of CO2, while a more powerful 120hp version emits 112g/km. A single petrol engine is offered – a 98hp 1.6-litre unit which emits 147g/km of CO2.
Styling changes include a new front grille that’s similar to the rest of the Peugeot line-up, while new reinforced protection has been applied to the bumper surface, which the French car and van maker said gives greater robustness to the front.
No other details have been revealed, but Peugeot claims the van undertook five million miles of testing, including hot and cold-weather testing.
The Partner was the biggest selling light van in the UK last year, selling 16,636 units with a massive increase in volume by 46.4%.
The growth from that model and the recently facelifted Boxer helped Peugeot to increase its position in UK van sales last year to fourth position overall, pushing Mercedes-Benz and Citroen down the sales table. Peugeot sold 31,867 vans in 2014, 50.1% up on 2013.
