Peugeot has given its Partner small commercial van a new model structure as part of a 2022 update.
The range starts with the City trim, which is a new base trim level.
It strips some of the equipment that was standard on the outgoing model, including the touchscreen infotainment system and autonomous emergency braking.
This is intended to create a lower asking price.
The mid-range Pro trim on the other hand receives all the standard equipment and safety features from the outgoing model.
The Partner range caps out at the Premium trim, which brings more luxurious features intended to transform the vehicle into something more car-like.
Up until the end of September 2021, Peugeot has sold 228 Partner vans. It was outsold by both of its two main competitors, the Renault Kangoo (522) and the Volkswagen Caddy Van (496).
