To meet the differing needs of business users, the Partner van range offers a wide selection of body styles. The main choice is between two lengths (the 'Standard' body shape at 4.4m long and the 'Long' version at 4.75m), plus there's a Crew Van version with a folding bench seat in row two.
Spec-wise, Peugeot is offering 'S', 'Grip', 'Professional' and 'Asphalt' trim levels in Standard or Long versions, with prices starting from around £16,000: there's a premium of around £2,000 for the long wheelbase body style. Most sales will be targeted at the so-called 'Asphalt' standard panel van versions. These are available with acoustic enhancements, dual zone air conditioning, seats with lumbar adjustment, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, cruise control with a speed Limiter, an electronic parking brake, Surround Rear Vision camera system and an 8-inch colour touchscreen with a connected 3D navigation system and DAB radio. Plus you get 16" alloy wheels and a body-coloured finish for the bumpers, the mirror housings, the side rubbing strips and the door handles.
An alternative for Partner van buyers is the 'Grip' variants which are designed for slightly more arduous delivery terrain like building sites. To better cope with this, the ride height of these derivatives is increased by 30mm and a protective plate under the engine is added. Plus there's a Grip Control with Hill Descent Assist set-up for extra front wheel traction in slippery conditions. This more robust model gets large wheels fitted with Mud and Snow tyres, an extra payload capacity of up to 1,000kg and a Loading Pack with enhanced LED lighting in the load area, plus an overload indicator, 12V and 220V power sockets and mid-height load securing rings.
