New Peugeot Rifter replaces Partner Tepee

7 2018 Peugeot Rifter

Following the announcements of the new Vauxhall Combo Life and Citroen Berlingo Multispace, the third and final installment of PSA’s LAV (Lifestyle Activity Vehicle) line up has been revealed.

The Rifter will be available to order in the summer, although prices are yet to be confirmed.

It comes in five or seven seat configurations with sliding side doors and van-like carrying capabilities.

New technology helps the Rifter feel more like a car than a van, crucial as the brand is hoping it will pick up dwindling MPV sales.

A range of PureTech and BlueHDi turbocharged engines will be available along with i-Cockpit digital instruments and advanced driver assistance systems.

It features an eight-inch infotainment display, adaptive cruise control, active lane departure warning system, blind spot monitoring system and the optional “Visiopark 180-degree” colour reversing camera.

Jean-Philippe Imparato, Peugeot chief executive, said: “With the all-new PEUGEOT Rifter, the brand fully reinvents its presence in this category, and achieves the perfect combination of versatility and driving pleasure by Peugeot. Gifted with a strong personality and a ‘chic wanderer’ look, the all-new Peugeot Rifter expresses freedom of action.”

The boot of the Rifter features a loading capacity of 775 litres under shelf, up to 4,000 litres under ceiling storage, and an additional enclosed, refrigerated space capable of storing up to 186 litres.

    An interesting vehicle and Peugeot are onto something here as the demand for 7 seater value MPVs especially in petrol form is increasing.
