Peugeot Partner Tepee

Peugeot Tepee 2015 motability car - 1The just released face-lifted Peugeot Partner Tepee is a Multi Purposed vehicle, you never loose the fact that it is based on a van as all your friends will tell you, but you have the last laugh as the Tepee and it’s cousin the Citroen Berlingo (whichmobilitycar.co.uk own one of these) are just about the best car to carry five people on the market. The size and height of the Tepee make it a pleasure to drive and be driven in, the three large rear seats are perfect for three adults or full sized car seats for children and the sliding rear doors make it easy to get into and out of regardless of your disability. The boot is huge and the lift up boot door means you can put a wheelchair into the car to be transported without even folding it up. There are trays, overhead storage, cubby holes everywhere and just so much space it’s a design masterpiece.

The only thing lacking with the old Tepee was a few luxuries, the Outdoor, if you can stretch to it, has all the bells and whistles.

Performance is adequate as a 100bhp, but the 120 is better for carrying a full car. Economy is excellent, the 100bhp version can return 68.9 miles per gallon as a 5 speed manual and hit 62mph in 13.4 seconds, the 120 six speed manual can hit the tape in 11.4 seconds and return 64.2 miles per gallon.  The six speed semi-automatic option is paired to the 100bhp diesel engine. The 1.2 litre petrol is now available that offers 110 bhp and can propel the car to 62mph in 12.2 seconds and return a claimed 55 miles per gallon, makes a super choice for those that mostly drive around town.
