Peugeot Partner (2008 – 2018) Review
Peugeot Partner (2008 – 2018) At A Glance
The Partner van shares its platform with the Peugeot 308 and 3008 so it's no surprise that it has car-like handling and ride. Designed to carry a load of up to 850 kg, Peugeot has kept it simple with the Partner and there is a choice of panel van, crew cab and flat cab bodies, as well a Long model for greater load length capacity.
There is also the ATV model with Grip Control that gives more sure-footed handling in slippery conditions without the added expense of a full-time 4x4 system.
With a load area width between the wheel arches of 1.22 metres, both versions can easily accommodate a Euro pallet. However it's still relatively compact in terms of its overall size, making it very versatile and easy to drive around town.
The load space has been designed with particular care to ensure ease of use and robustness. The inside walls are fully lined under the bodyline and a synthetic protective covering protects the load floor on SE versions. By protecting the load space against internal damage, it ensures the appearance of the exterior bodywork remains intact, which is often important for the owner’s business or professional image
A single 1.6-litre HDi turbodiesel engine does service in the Partner and is offered in 75PS and 92PS forms. It’s a frugal engine in both guises and, when coupled to Peugeot semi-auto EGC gearbox, it can offer emissions as low as 123g/km.
