The Peugeot Expert and Citroen Dispatch van ranges have been updated with engines that comply with the Euro 6.2 emissions standard.

Both ranges – which are built on the same platform – now start with a 1.5-litre, 100hp diesel engine.

Other engine options are 2.0-litre diesels with 120, 150 and 180hp.

All come with a six-speed manual gearbox, except for the 180hp engine which now comes with an eight-speed auto, replacing the six-speed auto previously on offer

All the engines are fitted with stop-start technology.

Both vans are now available in four trim levels, with the two higher specs newly introduced. For the Expert the range now comprises S, Professional, Grip and Asphalt, while the Dispatch is available in X, Enterprise, Worker and Driver specs.

Features of Grip and Worker specs include a Moduwork bulkhead with a load-through flap, a dual passenger bench seat with fold-up outer seat and fold-down writing table, a 20mm increase in ground clearance, a 20mm thick sump guard, the Grip Control enhanced traction control system, and 17in steel wheel fitted with all-season mud and snow tyres. Payloads are 1,400kg.

Asphalt and Driver vans get sat-nav and DAB radio with voice recognition, front and rear sensors with blind spot monitoring and a rear-view camera, and a Safety Pack with lane departure warning, speed limit recognition and recommendation, driver attention assist and Smartbeam headlights.

Also included are a Driver Assist Pack, with adaptive cruise control, distance alert and active safety brake, and a head-up display. 

Both vans also now feature emergency call and assistance services as standard across the range.

Production of the updated vans will begin in May.

Prices excluding VAT for the ranges start at £21,320 for an Expert Compact S panel van and a Dispatch XS S panel van, and rise to £34,035 for an Expert Asphalt crew van and a Dispatch Driver crew van.
