The Peugeot Expert van lives up to its name by acting as the specialist partner for businesses on the road. It's an economical and generously-sized commercial vehicle that ably represents and supports you. Modern, robust and distinctive, the New Peugeot Expert makes urban driving a pleasure.
Even before getting into the van, you can see the capability – particularly from the shape you've chosen. The Expert is available as a panel van, window van or crew van, and in blue, white, grey or black paintwork shades which act as smart bases for business branding. All versions have twin sliding side doors that come either solid or glazed, and the twin rear doors open to a 180-degree angle for greater access, loading and unloading.
Rear fog lights and reversing lights add to the functionality at the back, and a contrast bumper under higher-positioned headlights features at the other end of the van. A fresh chrome-plated grille and new Peugeot badge signal the upgraded new generation of the Expert and lend a more professional look to the exterior.
In an Expert, you'll enjoy a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere with the functional, convenient features of a mobile office. The seats are positioned and shaped to keep crews supported on lengthier journeys, with full durable grey cloth upholstery, and front armrests have been built into the door panels.
Multiple storage areas within the dashboard put everything within easy reach, and there are also front door pockets and passenger grab handles fitted in the cab. There's even a large overhead storage space that's ideally sized for paperwork, folders and clipboards. For carrying cargo, no less than eight tie-down hooks have been included in the load space to keep all items secure.
It's possible to specify the Expert van with a 1.6-litre or 2.0-litre diesel engine, at 90bhp or 130bhp. All of them have the strength to get from 0-60mph within 18 seconds, and the peak 44.1mpg combined will keep you motoring for much longer.
The maximum payload is either an impressive tonne or 1.2 tonnes dependent on the style of van you go for, and the loadspace volumes span from five to seven cubic metres. In any configuration the Expert is always capable and reliable, and it can even tow as much as two tonnes of braked trailer weight.
Peugeot's systems for crystal-clear audio, digital journey recording and comfortable heating join you on each delivery and business trip. Courtesy lighting is provided both in the cabin and load area to make access simpler at night or in poor weather.
Outside all of these fitted features, the Expert itself has a rigid, reinforced shell that protects from impact energy. ABS, front airbags and Roll-Over Mitigation add to the support, and ESP with traction control can be added as an optional security pack.
