Peugeot Australia is launching a larger version of its popular Partner small Van.
Featuring 30 per cent more cargo space, the new Partner Long comes with a 3.9 cubic metre cabin matched with a class leading 1,000kg payload. The extra space comes via an extension behind the rear wheels that takes the internal cabin length to just under 2.2 metres, or up to 3.4 metres through the removable flap on the standard fit bulkhead.
At 4.7 metres it will fit comfortably in any normal car parking space, and a low 1.8 metre roof height making it easy access to underground car parks. A 1,200 square pallet slides in comfortably between the rear arches, while the dual side doors provide easy access to your gear from either side. Peugeot Partner Van Long also comes with three seats up front which is the only van in its class to offer this handy feature.
Power comes from the trusty Peugeot PureTech. Proof that good things come in small packages, the 1.2L PureTech cranks out a peak 96kw, with a diesel-like 230Nm available from just off idle, all while using just 6.3L/100km on the combined cycle. Drive is to the front wheels via a smooth and slick shifting 8-speed automatic transmission.
Peugeot Australia General Manager Kate Gillis says, “we often hear from customers in the cleaning business that they really like their Peugeot Partner’s easy drive, practicality and low running costs, but sometimes they could use with just a bit more space out back. With a cabin that is almost a third larger, this new Partner model delivers exactly what our customers want, further improving their productivity and their van’s ROI”.
Peugeot Partner Long comes with a five year/200,000km warranty and five years roadside assistance. It will be available for delivery from June with a MRLP of $33,990 plus on-road costs.
