Peugeot is adding a crew van variant to its Partner light van.

The new model is based on the long length Partner, with the Professional trim level.

It adds a second row of three seats, with a sliding and folding mesh bulkhead containing a through-loading hatch.

With the rear seats in place, there’s a maximum load floor length of 1,450mm and a load volume of 1.8m3, while with the rear seats folded the figures rise to 2,000mm and 3.5m3 respectively.

With the front passenger seat also folded, and the through-loading hatch open, up to 3,050mm of load floor length is available, and load volume is extended to 4.0m3.

The maximum gross payload is 850kg.

The Partner crew van is available with three engines – a 110hp petrol, a 100hp diesel and a 130hp diesel, which are paired with six-speed manual, five-speed manual, and eight-speed automatic transmission respectively.

Standard equipment includes air conditioning, rear parking sensors, cruise control with variable speed limiter, an alarm, one-touch electric windows, DAB radio, Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

The Partner crew van is available to order now, with production starting in January.

Prices excluding VAT start from £21,140.
