New Partner Tepee: Even Greater Freedom Of Action!

by Lawana Perkins | Posted on Monday, March 16th, 2015

Their robustness, new modern and connected equipment, as well as a range of more economical and powerful Euro 6 engines, make the new Peugeot Partner and Partner Tepee even more appealing. In their BlueHDi 100 S&S versions, both have record CO2 emissions figures in their segments of just 106 and 109 g/km respectively.

New Partner Tepee

Perfectly in tune with their time, they still do not forget the fundamental reasons for their success: reliability, flexibility and unequalled modularity combined with benchmark loading capacity and a comfortable cabin.

The design of the front of the new Peugeot Partner and Partner Tepee, a mark of strength and expressiveness, continues the revision of the LCV range started in 2014 with the new Peugeot Boxer.

Laid out between the headlamps with their redesigned outlines, the new grille carries the Peugeot Lion at its centre. It dominates the enveloping new bumper with its tight lines, the whole giving the new Peugeot Partner and Partner Tepee a more vertical look and greater perceived robustness.

New patches applied to the bumper surface, reinforce the robustness of the front end and offer the advantage of being easily replaceable in the event of scrape or minor impact. They house the front foglamps and the LED daytime running lamps (available according to trim level). The light signature is emphasised by these DRLs, positioned low down at each end of the bumper. This ensemble gives it its solid stance and the effect of an extended vehicle.

Other than the restyled front end, the new Partner Tepee introduces 2 new colours: Moka Grey and Artense Grey, available alongside Bianca White, Ardent Red, Kyanos Blue, Aluminium Grey, Shark Grey and Nocciola.

New 8-spoke Managua 16 ” alloy wheels, available as an option, accentuate the dynamic character of the new Peugeot Partner Tepee.

Inside the vehicle, the handling of colours and the rich materials used contribute towards the modernity of the cabin. A new Onega Grey ambience appears on the dashboard and various interior parts. Cadaska Roux seat trim is added as an alternative to Cadaska Bleu on trim level 2 and a new technical and high quality NeoSpa seat trim is used on trim level 3 and the Outdoor version.

Latest generation technologies

Already available with a wide range of equipment to ensure safety and help with driving, the new Partner Tepee is updated with useful and efficient technologies.

The comfortable and ergonomic cabin in the new Partner Tepee is equipped with a new telematic system with a large, perfectly integrated 7” colour touch screen, in the middle of the dashboard where it is easy reach and to see.

Navigation, available as an option, includes the display of speed limits and traffic information with mapping for Europe.

Connected to its time, the new Peugeot Partner Tepee also includes the best of vehicle connectivity: Bluetooth, USB port, auxiliary jack socket and the MirrorScreen function.

With a Mirrorlink®  or Carplay®  compatible smartphone connected, MirrorScreen allows the best of its mobile applications to be duplicated on the vehicle’s large touch screen, so that they can be used in complete safety.

Access to the applications is managed according to the state of the vehicle. When it is moving, the driver can use applications useful for driving, navigation for example, or those providing infotainment, such as internet radio.

The compatible applications developed to date include iCoyote, Parkopedia, Glympse, the Sygic navigation application …

[1] Mirrorlink® is an evolving communication protocol developed by the Car Connectivity Consortium, that includes the main motor manufacturers, mobile phone manufacturers and application developers.

[1] Carplay® is an Apple communication protocol available on Peugeot Partner and Partner Tepee at the end of 2015.

Even more driving assistance and safety systems

Active City Brake technology (automatic urban braking when there is a risk of collision, available as an option from trim level 2 before the end of 2015) is a new system that allows an accident to be avoided or the severity of an impact to be reduced if the driver fails to react, in urban conditions at speeds of up to 20 mph (30 km/h).

The reversing camera, available as an option from trim level 2, uses the large colour screen and simplifies everyday parking manoeuvres. It allows the driver to see the edges of the vehicle and its trajectory through the use of coloured lines, so making these manoeuvres easy and safe.

In addition to the rear parking sensors already standard on trim level 3, the new Peugeot Partner Tepee is now available with front parking sensors to make low speed manoeuvres even safer.

Grip Control, a system that provides enhanced traction, remains a reference in the segment. Patented by the PSA Peugeot Citroën Group, it extends the usability of the Peugeot Partner Tepee on roads or tracks with low levels of grip, allowing the vehicle to continue to make progress in a situation where a normal 2-wheel drive vehicle would remain stuck.

A new range of even more efficient engines

he new Peugeot Partner Tepee has an entirely new and wide range of latest generation engines that meet the Euro 6 emissions standard.

In total, seven VTi petrol and BlueHDi Diesel engines are available at launch, delivering from 75 to 120 hp.

They provide an answer for all types of use, while having fuel consumption and CO2 emissions that are 15 % lower on average than the engines replaced.

The BlueHDi engines offer optimum driving enjoyment thanks to their improved torque and power, together with the adoption of a 6-speed manual gearbox on the BlueHDi 120 version.

Furthermore, the 1.6 litre BlueHDi 100 S&S version has record CO2 emission in the segment, from 109 g/km.

During the first half of 2016, the recent 3-cylinder 1.2 litre PureTech 110 hp turbo petrol engine combined with a 5-speed manual gearbox should also establish a new record for petrol in the segment.

Always adaptable to the user’s needs and desires

Alone, with the family or among friends, the new Peugeot Partner Tepee continues to offer great modularity and remarkable flexibility, adapting to every day needs, as well as for leisure and going away activities.

Available in 5 or 7 separate seat versions, with 3 removable seats in row 2, as well as 3 more removable seats in row 3 in the case of the 7-seat version, the Partner Tepee presents a flat floor and a load volume of between 675 and 3000 litres, among the best in the category.

Loading the boot is facilitated in all conditions due to its large tailgate and its opening rear screen, an exclusive in the segment.

So the Partner Tepee offers a multitude of configurations so that both people and objects can be carried with ease. This is the freedom to take the children and their friends to school or to transport bicycles for a ride with the family, or skis or surfboards for a weekend among friends.

With the Zenith sunroof, this unique fitting in the leisure activity segment, the occupants already feel outdoors. Ingenious, it combines:

– Great brightness with its 4 dark tinted glass panels ;

– Improved temperature control for the rear passengers with 3 additional air vents ;

– 94 litres of additional storage space in the roof. There is an overhead storage bin at the front, storage spaces either side of the centre roof console and at the rear a compartment accessible both from the cabin and the boot. This is in addition to the 90  litres of open and closed storage space already present around the cabin;

– Also, a modular exterior loading capacity due to its roof bars, which can be secured longitudinally or transversely as required.
