The new Peugeot Expert is part of the Marque’s upmarket trend incorporating the new style codes, new equipment and a range of Euro 5 engines which position it as leader in its segment (private vehicles and light utility vehicles) as regards emissions of CO2.
So, the new Peugeot Expert, available as an LUV compact van and as a private vehicle combi (Tepee) is characterised by:
- a modern appearance symbolised by a new front face;
- high-performance and efficient Euro 5 engines;
- best-in-class low CO2 emissions in the light van and combi segment;
- technological equipment not previously applied before in the segment;
- a 6-speed automatic gearbox on the 2.0 l HDi 163 bhp engine.
Peugeot was one of the forerunners in the creation of compact vans and combis. Today, the restyling of the 3 rd generation of the Expert symbolises the intention to continue the success of this model, with more than 475,000 units (private vehicles and light utility vehicles) produced since its first launch in 1995.
The restyling of the Expert obviously includes integration of the new Peugeot style. The Lion badge in its new form takes its place on the front face, affixed on the bonnet itself. The grille, redesigned with notably the addition of a chromed edge, raises the image of the vehicle making it distinctive, while looking more dynamic.
The new Expert sets itself apart also through its new range of Euro 5 engines allowing it to reduce the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions performance in its segment. With power values ranging from 90 to 163 bhp with 6-speed manual and automatic gearboxes for the most powerful engines, each customer will find the product which best fulfils their requirements.
The new Peugeot Expert is produced in France, near Valenciennes and will go on sale in Spring 2012.
