When choosing the Partner, you choose more than just a utility van, you buy a vehicle designed to enable you to make the most of your business.
Small businesses often travel big distances. You need to be comfortable on the road. The Peugeot Partner is not a bad place to spend the day hopping in and out, delivering and collecting, and making money at the same time.
It’s a compact commercial vehicle with heaps of space. In fact, getting into a Partner is very much like getting into a passenger car.
It has large doors with a bright airy cabin thanks to the generous heat reflective windscreen and big mirrors – a must on any van. The seats are comfortable, and the rake and tilt adjustable steering wheel enables most drivers to find their ideal driving position. A sliding door gives easy access into the cargo area.
A necessary, practical feature is that the cargo area doors can be locked and unlocked separately to the cabin doors, which can be very useful, especially during stop-start dashes into shops or businesses.
You won’t battle to find storage space in the Peugeot Partner either. There are loads of storage bins such as the shelf above the driver and passenger area and the bin under the driver’s seat. It even has a bin on top of the dash in front of the driver, perfect for housing anything from cell phones to A4 notepads.
In addition the Peugeot Partner boasts a whole range of safety equipment. It handles well and includes driver and passenger airbags, ABS anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBFD), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), Electronic Stability Program (ESP), pre-tensioning and force limiting outer front seatbelts, driver seat belt warning alarm, automatic door unlocking and fuel cut off in the event of an accident, and automatic activation of hazard lights under emergency braking.
Automatic drive away locking, power steering, electric front windows along with cruise control and speed limiter, guarantees the Peugeot Partner has the strength to stand up to any test.
The Partner can transport an additional passenger, giving added mobility options. It’s a three-seater with an extra third middle seat. Fold down the side seat and you’ll get more continuous flat floor space. This allows you to carry loads of up to 3m long and up to 100mm in height.
It is also possible to raise the side seat cushion to enable you to put tall loads in the cab area. The middle seat backrest folds down to reveal a writing tablet, while its raised cushion provides access to a securable storage space.
When designing the Partner, the Peugeot designers squeezed as much space into the cargo area as they could with minimal wheel arch intrusions and an almost square shape.
The payload of 850kg, and a volume capacity of 3.7m3 coupled with a load length of 1 800mm and a width between the wheel arches of 1 230mm means the Partner’s loading capacity is among the best in its class
The Peugeot Partner comes with a 3 Year/100 000km factory warranty and a standard 4 year/60 000km service plan.
Pricing starts from R264 900 incl VAT.
