Peugeot‘s robust-looking Rifter MPV is set to boast a starting price of just under £20,000.
The newcomer, which replaces the old Partner Tepee, will be available in two versions: five-seat ‘Standard Length’ or seven-seat ‘Long Length’. The five-seat variant will start from £19,650, while the longer seven-seat model will be available from £21,570.
For that money, you’ll get the basic ‘Active’ trim level, which includes air conditioning, electric door mirrors and a DAB radio. You’ll also get a range of safety systems, including autonomous emergency braking and lane-keeping assistance.
Spending an extra thousand pounds or so on the ‘Allure’ version, however, will buy you an eight-inch touchscreen, alloy wheels and electric rear windows. You get tray tables in the back, too.
Topping the range off is the GT Line model, which costs £22,570 in five-seat guise and £24,270 in seven-seat configuration. Standard kit includes satellite navigation, two-zone climate control and a panoramic glass roof.
Customers will also have a choice of engines and fuel types. Peugeot has confirmed that a 1.2-litre petrol with 108bhp and a 128bhp 1.5-litre diesel will make the grade.
David Peel, Managing Director of Peugeot UK, said: “As the spiritual successor to the Peugeot Partner Tepee, the all-new Rifter builds on its most successful elements, while going one step further by mixing SUV characteristics with the traditional practicality and versatility to revolutionise the sector.”
