Size Matters

Apparently when it comes to business partners, the Peugeot Partner reckons that size matters. Well, I can't disagree on that. Not when it makes sense.


Although the overall look and feel of the Partner is as basic as what you'd see on the roads, it's no ordinary box vehicle. It's robustly built, quicker and a better drive as compared to other vans.

But what really matters isn't the outlook or how refined it is. After all, it's a van and with the price you need to pay for one, it had better be spacious and hardworking.

And the Peugeot Partner offers just that.

Exterior

The compact exterior dimensions make for an easily maneuverable van that is reasonably attractive thanks to the front end of the cat-eyed headlamps and large chromed Peugeot badge that is not dissimilar to the rest of the Peugeot family. The seemingly long lateral perspective as well as the rear end view is not entirely unlovable either and makes for an excellent vehicle from a visual marketing standpoint, without being quirky or tacky.

The Partner is highly accessible. Front doors provide a large aperture which allows passengers to slide easily into the van's front seats. And as always with most vans, the two sliding side doors that offer convenient side access are inadequate as they don't open up as wide as they should.

However, the asymmetric hinged rear doors provide for an excellent access and loading as they open to a wide angle of 180 degrees without much needed difficulty, giving hardworking owners the space and convenience they deserve.
