Peugeot has revealed its new Traveller van at the Geneva Show, an MPV which shares the same platform as its sister models from Citroen and Toyota.
The new Traveller is based on a jointly developed platform by PSA and Toyota, a collaboration that brought to light three sister models: the Peugeot MPV, Citroen Spacetourer and Toyota Proace. These vans are specifically designed for the Combispace and VIP Shuttle sector, by proposing an ultra-comfortable journey for both private and business use. Available in 3 lengths ranging from 4.60 m to 5.30 m (the 4.60 m Compact version, the 4.95 m Standard version and the 5.30 m Long version), the Peugeot Traveller offers up to 9 seats with 1,500 litres of boot space or up to 4,900 litres thanks to its removable seats.
Professionals and private individuals in this segment have different needs and expectations, thus the new MPV comes in two ranges, each with two trims. For private customers, there is the Combispace with the Active and Allure finishes available in 5, 7 or 8 seat versions, while the upscale Shuttle version has the Business finishes available in 5 to 9 seat versions and the Business VIP with 6 and 7 seat layout. The multi-functional roof, as standard on the superior level, includes LED mood lighting, in addition to individual reading lights, and soft diffusion climate control separated from the individual air vents. The Peugeot Traveller Business VIP, the high-end version of the range, offers to the rear-seat passengers the lounge configuration with 4 separate seats facing one another or 5 seats with the 3-seater bench seat option in row 3.
There are four engines available for the MPV, depending on the market. Two 1.6 diesels with 95 HP and 115 HP, and a larger 2.0-litre option offering 150 HP and 180 HP. There are three transmission options: a 5 speed and a 6 speed manual or a ETG6 automatic gearbox.
