CarSite Verdict:

 4/5

This all new Peugeot Partner Tepee is versatile and attractively priced too. The main attraction of this brand new car is its exterior which is solid and well-built, but unfortunately the appearance still leaves something to be desired.

PROS:  This latest entrant by Peugeot is a quite spacious and practical vehicle when it comes to medium-sized cars. With solid built and smooth engines, this car is a fun to drive around the town.

CONS:  This is quite a costly car and comes with standard equipment and safety kit. Also the interiors are surrounded with a plastic which is not at par with the quality standards. Some versions are costly, and you’ll have to spend extra on desirable comfort and safety kit.

Behind the Wheel Looks & Equipment Practicality, Safety & Reliability Value for Money

Behind the Wheel

It has a mid-power diesel engine which is smooth and punchy enough to deliver an enjoyable driving experience. This 1.6 diesel engine with 110 bhp of power delivers high levels of comfort and drivability.

There is plenty of adjustment within the steering wheel and seats to make them a great option for buyers and the car is also blessed with excellent visibility with large windows.

Power credentials are fairly average for a car of this class thanks to the 110 bhp of power, with a top speed of 99 mph and acceleration capable of pushing the car from 0-62 mph in 16.8 seconds.

Looks & Equipment

This five door Partner Tepee looks quite acceptable as a medium sized car with a smart interior. The only odd thing is the plastic, which is very hard and poor in quality, making the entire car look cheap from the inside.

Standard features include alloy wheels, split/fold rear seats, electric front windows, heated mirrors, satellite navigation, and an over head storage compartment. However, it lacks cruise control, good quality leather seats, air-conditioning, and MP3, Bluetooth and USB connectivity.

Practicality, Safety & Reliability

This Peugeot Partner Tepee is blessed with a very favourable amount of cabin space. There is enough room for five adults, with ample head and legroom.

Large windows and sliding rear doors make it easy to hop in and out of the car, and the boot offers a decent capacity regardless of whether the seats are in place or not.

The Partner Tepee comes with standard security systems and equipment including remote central locking, driver airbags, passenger airbags, centre 3 point belt, locking wheel nuts, seatbelt sensors, and power steering as well as driver, passenger and front side airbags. Deadlocks are fitted but an alarm is missing and there is no option to have one added.

Value for Money

This Peugeot Partner Tepee suffers from depreciation with resale values weak for the range.

That being said, it is a fairly economical car with a purchase price of £13,245 and manageable running costs. Fuel efficiency of 65.6 mpg is achieved on a combined cycle and carbon emissions are kept to a low of 119 g/km, placing the car under road tax band C. Insurance premiums are perhaps the lowest expense, falling under insurance group 5 - making this a great option for those on a budget.

Overall the model represents excellent value for money.
