Peugeot Partner Tepee Video Review
Has Peugeot’s Partner Tepee van-based compact people carrier sold out and gone a bit posh in this upgraded guise? Don’t worry. Behind that sleeker looking front end and all that talk of flashy multimedia systems, glass roofs and Lidar-based city braking functions, you can still buy a basic one that’s as useful as ever. It’s just a lot more efficient these days.
Go back a few years and van-based passenger vehicles were, and there’s no real way to gild this one, a bit rough. You bought one because you needed stacks of space and you didn’t have a lot of money. Or alternatively, because your kids would destroy anything that wasn’t built in the back like a police detention vehicle. These days, things have changed. Not only have commercial vehicles become a lot slicker, but there’s been a gradual merging between conventional MPVs and van-based people carriers. There’s no longer a yawning gulf in look and feel.
Well, that’s the case for most manufacturers anyway. For Peugeot, that’s a trickier gap to bridge, largely because the interior build quality of their passenger cars has raced ahead massively within the last five years. In order to try to keep up, their van-based MPV, the Peugeot Partner Tepee, has been given a scrub up.
