Peugeot's Partner van gets added grip control

Recently introduced on the Peugeot 3008 Crossover, Peugeot's grip control system is now available on L1 HDi 90 850 Partner van models, in both S and SE trim levels, as part of an all terrain option pack.

Combined with grip control the option also includes under-engine protection tray, up-rated 195/70 R15 tyres, one-touch electric front windows, remote control central door locking, electric heated mirrors and passenger airbag with deactivation switch.

When the option is selected on SE trim level vehicles, one-touch electric front windows, remote control central door locking and electric heated mirrors are already included as standard.

The all terrain option pack aims to further strengthen the functionality and versatility of the Partner van, especially the inclusion of the traction control system - grip control, says Peugeot.

Grip control consists of an enhanced traction control system and up-rated tyres. It is aimed at customers looking for a van that offers all terrain capabilities, in terms of traction compared to that of a ‘traditional’ van, regardless of the type of terrain encountered.

The aim of the system is to optimise the traction of both front wheels by using clever electronic control, incorporated within the ESP electronic control unit (ECU). Controlling the system electronically allows the system to be more efficient and effective than a conventional mechanical limited slip differential.

The all terrain option pack is only available on L1 HDi 90 850 kg models, including the Crew van, and costs £750 for S trim models and £640 for SE trim models, excluding VAT.
