Peugeot Partner Tepee
7/10

Overall
verdict

Peugeot’s badge-engineered version of the Citroen Berlingo. And every bit as competent, so why do we prefer the Citroen. Is is just that silly name?

What is it?

Plenty of grip and it rides bumps nicely, but that body roll will become very evident if you start thrashing the Tepee. So don’t.

Driving

Unsurprisingly, given the Tepee’s van-like dimensions, there’s a bit of body roll, so tell your passengers to hang on if you’re in a rush. Apart from that, they’ll be as comfy as can be back there.

On the inside

A huge choice of engines, but in a nutshell it has to be a diesel and the 90bhp version is the best compromise between power and economy: it’ll manage 0-60 in 14 seconds and still give you 50mpg.

Owning

Possibly just a little bit, but only in a sort of inverted-cool way thanks to the whole van-with-windows thing. We’ve confused ourselves there.
