Should I buy a Peugeot Partner Tepee or a Mercedes-Benz Citan?

I'm thinking of buying a diesel Peugeot Partner Tepee automatic 1.6 or a Mercedes-Benz Citan Traveliner manual diesel as a compromise between a car and a van. I'd appreciate your thoughts about these vehicles.

Don't buy an automated manual anything. Though the Citan is really a Renault Kangoo it comes over a bit posher than the Tepee, and the Tepee and Citroen Berlingo are up for replacement later this year anyway.
