Peugeot Expert VAN
The Peugeot Expert VAN had a complete overhaul in 2016, with a new platform, improved looks and a range of safety kit added to the equipment list. All of this should make the Expert popular with middleweight van buyers in the UK, although with a number of strong rivals in the sector, it will have its work cut out to make an impact.
There are two sister models to the Expert – the Citroen Dispatch and Toyota Proace – and all three use the PSA Peugeot Citroen group’s EMP2 platform, which is also used in passenger cars such as the Peugeot 308 and Citroen C4 Picasso. As a result, the Expert is more car-like to drive than many other mid-size vans, while it also means this trio are available with some of the latest safety tech seen in mainstream production cars.
The Expert has been beefed up over its car relatives so that it can cope with heavy commercial loads, with heavy-duty suspension and revised power steering designed to handle bigger loads. The rear suspension set-up has been designed to reduce intrusion into the load bay, and there’s plenty of room in the back for two Euro pallets in all models.
Meticulously designed, the Peugeot Expert van offers multiple seating configurations for optimum comfort for all passengers. Rare in the segment, the Compact Version also optimises space for up to 9 people on board.
