Peugeot has announced prices for its new Partner light van before it goes on sale in the UK at the start of next year.
Like its PSA stablemate the Citroen Berlingo, with which it shares a platform alongside the new Opel/Vauxhall Combo, the starting price for the Partner will be £15,825, all prices listed exclude VAT.
Peugeot is offering the Partner in S, Grip, Professional and Asphalt trim levels and in standard and long versions.
Peugeot says the third generation Partner Van brings increased loading capacities, improved dynamics and greater levels of driver assistance systems. The brand’s Free2Move Connect Fleet fleet management tool provides a choice of three telematics packages.
The S trim comes with DAB radio, Bluetooth hands-free, Peugeot Connect SOS and Assistance, electric windows, automatic headlights, nearside sliding door, full steel bulkhead, electronic stability control and ABS with hill start assist, EBA (emergency brake assist) and EBFD (electronic brake force distribution) as standard. Prices start at £15,825 for the standard version and £17,800 for the long version.
Professional trim level adds air conditioning, rear-parking sensors, eight-inch colour touchscreen with MirrorLink sat-nav, six-way adjustable driver’s seat, cruise control with programmable speed limiter and automatic electronic parking brake. Prices start at £17,425 for the standard length and £19,400 for the long length.
The Grip level has been designed for drivers that need to transport heavy equipment on rough terrain. It has three front seats, 30mm raised ground clearance, a protective plate under the engine and enhanced traction thanks to Grip Control with hill assist descent. It comes with 690mm wheels fitted with mud and snow tyres as well as a payload of up to 1,000kg and Overload Indicator technology. The standard Loading Pack offers LED lighting to the load area, four additional mid-height load-securing rings and a 220V power socket. Prices for Grip start at £17,075 for the standard and £18,700 for the long version.
Asphalt is built for drivers making longer trips or numerous deliveries in urban areas, according to Peugeot, and thus benefits from acoustic and thermal enhancements. It also gets an eight-inch colour touchscreen with Peugeot Connect 3D Navigation with voice recognition and DAB radio, the Surround Rear Vision camera system, automatic electronic parking brake and Visibility Pack with automatic headlights and windscreen. Asphalt also comes with16-in alloy wheels, body coloured side rubbing strips, door handles, exterior rear view mirrors and rear bumper.

Grip, Professional and Asphalt versions also get the Multi-Flex modular folding passenger seat, which provides an additional load length of 1,273mm and increases the load volume by 0.6m3.
The diesel engine line-up consists of the BlueHDi 75hp manual, BlueHDi 100hp S&S manual, BlueHDi 130hp S&S 6-speed manual and the Blue HDi 130hp S&S EAT8 automatic. PureTech petrol engines are also planned and will be subject to a further announcement, the brand said.
