new peugeot partner tepee - even greater freedom in an ever more competitive leisure activity segment

Friday, 27 February 2015

  • The new PEUGEOT Partner Tepee has new look, Euro 6 engines and the latest equipment
  • Low CO2 and improved economy increase the versatility of this multiuse vehicle
  • New features include reversing camera, touchscreen and Active City Brake

In 1996 PEUGEOT created a new category of private cars: that of leisure activity vehicles. The spaciousness and practicality of this multi-use vehicle, the PEUGEOT Partner Tepee remains the benchmark. With 15.3% of sector sales in Europe in 2014, the Partner Tepee maintains its appeal.

Since its launch in 2008, the current generation has maintained its place on the podium, in a segment that is constantly expanding, now with four times more competitors and the arrival of a more compact category than initially offered. Sales outside Europe in this sector represent nearly 27% of the total for the Partner Tepee, a growth of 8% compared to 2009 (the first full year on sale).

In a world of leisure activity vehicles built around family and practical values, the new PEUGEOT Partner Tepee, while still providing the fundamental requirements, is positioned at the activity end of the spectrum. Its styling changes along with the latest generation of useful, efficient technology and latest engines give users greater freedom and optimisation.

Other than the restyled front end, the new Partner Tepee introduces two 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, also accentuate the dynamic character of the new PEUGEOT Partner Tepee.

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

Latest generation technologies

Already available with a wide range of equipment to ensure safety and driving assistance, 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 to reach and see.

Standard on trim level three and available as an option on trim level two, giving easy access to the vehicle’s various systems : trip computer, AM/FM radio or digital DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting), Jukebox music files (integral hard disk) or portable devices, hands-free telephone and navigation. Navigation includes the display of speed limits and traffic information with mapping for Europe.

Greater 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 two) 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 below 20mph.

A short range laser sensor (Lidar: Light Detection and Ranging) fitted at the top of the windscreen detects vehicles travelling in the same direction or stationary. If necessary, it automatically triggers full power braking. In some cases this system will automatically bring the vehicle to a complete stop, so avoiding a potential collision with the vehicle ahead.

The reversing camera, available as an option from trim level two, uses the large colour display 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 three, the new PEUGEOT Partner Tepee is now available with front parking sensors to make low speed manoeuvres 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 on low grip surfaces, allowing the vehicle to continue to make progress in a situation where a normal two-wheel drive vehicles would struggle.

Grip Control is combined with a generous ground clearance of 15cm with Mud & Snow tyres. Versatile and flexible, it adapts to the conditions encountered by acting on the front driving wheels, while leaving the driver in control at all times. At any time the driver can choose to allow the system to use its intelligence in Standard mode, or select the desired mode using the dial on the dashboard centre panel: Snow, Off-road, Sand, ESP Off.

The level of equipment fitted as standard is also expanded on the new PEUGEOT Partner Tepee: speed limiter and cruise control, as well as air conditioning are now available from trim level two. The Outdoor version offers three separate and removable seats in row two and lateral airbags in row one.

A new range of even more efficient engines

The 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 75 to 120hp.

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 they replace:

  • 1.6-litre VTi 98hp, 5-speed manual with CO2emissions from 148g/km, saving 7g;
  • 1.6-litre VTi 120hp, 5-speed manual with CO2emissions from 148g/km, saving 16g;
  • 1.6-litre BlueHDi 75hp, 5-speed manual with CO2emissions from 113g/km, saving 22g;
  • 1.6-litre BlueHDi 100hp, 5-speed manual with CO2emissions from 113g/km, saving 22g;
  • 1.6-litre BlueHDi 100hp S&S, 5-speed manual with CO2 emissions from 109g/km, saving 14g;
  • 1.6-litre BlueHDi 100hp S&S ETG6, 6-speed electronic with CO2 emissions from 109g/km, saving 6g;
  • 1.6 litre BlueHDi 120hp S&S, 6-speed manual with CO2 emissions from 113g/km, saving 16g.

BlueHDi engines offer optimum driving enjoyment due to 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 low CO2 emissions in the segment, from 109g/km.

Always adaptable to the user’s needs and desires

When driving on their own, 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, going away activities or for practical requirements.

Available in 5 or 7 separate seat versions, with 3 removable seats in row 2, as well as 2 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.

The Partner Tepee offers a multitude of configurations so that both people and objects can be carried with ease. This is the freedom to be able to take their children and friends to school or to transport bicycles for a weekend away.

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

  • Great brightness with its four 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.
