Peugeot Partner Tepee gets a facelift

Peugeot has given its Partner Tepee family van a facelift for 2015, with a fresh exterior, new engines and desirable new features.

Described by Peugeot as “a leisure activity vehicle built around a spacious and versatile interior”, the Partner Tepee is essentially an upgraded version of the Partner van refitted for family use.

The most obvious change on the facelifted version is a redesigned front end, which features a revised light and grille design for a more contemporary styling and integrated front face.

Redesigned front end

Available in two trim levels, Active and Allure, the Tepee now comes with an upgraded list of even more useful and efficient technologies, including a new infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen.

Standard on the Allure trim and available as an optional extra on the entry-level Active, it includes DAB digital radio, a hard-drive music storage system and hands-free phone functions, plus optional sat-nav.

For the first time, the Peugeot Partner Tepee is now available with the Active City Brake technology, which automatically engages the brakes if drivers fail to react in low-speed collisions.

Other new kit includes a reversing camera, an optional Zenith sunroof and two new exterior colours, alongside new eight-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels along with two additional interior seat trims.

Making the best use of its enviable space, the Tepee, which is available with either five or seven seats, still comes with a hugely practical interior, with a load volume between 675 and 3,000 litres.

The seats are also sliding, foldable and removable, meaning that people, cargo or a combination of both can be carried with ease, with the Tepee equally at home in the countryside or on the school run.

Cost-conscious drivers now have access to a choice of five petrol and diesel engines to further boost desirability and to increase efficiency and performance.

New efficient engine range

Each engine delivers between 74bhp and 118bhp, all of the engines are compliant with the latest Euro6 emissions regulations,with lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions as a result.

The all-new Peugeot Partner Tepee is available to order from this month onwards, with prices from £14,785 for the entry-level Active trim and £18,595 for the range-topping Allure model.

As well as that, the newest version of the regular Peugeot Partner van is available to buy from dealerships now, with prices starting from £13,215.
