Revealing of 2015 Peugeot Partner facelift

Citroën refreshed its Berlingo assembly line last week and Peugeot follows it with sister vehicle Partner.

The model will have similar cosmetic refreshments. The vehicle will have a more refined front fascia with redesigned headlamps and a new radiator enclosure with the Peugeot lion in the centre. The front bumper has received new replaceable patches. They make the model’s outlook more robust. The lower bumper’s section has gained the strips of daytime running lights from LED. There also are round fog lights below them.

The Partner Tepee will be available in two colours: Moka Grey and Artense Grey. Optionally, it can be equipped with eight-spoke 16-inch Managua alloy wheels. A new Onega Grey theme and a Cadaska Roux seat trimming can be seen inside the car. The Partner of higher specification and Partner Outdoor can have a new NeoSpa seat trimming.

The 2015 Peugeot Partner can ride with one of the seven available VTi petrol and Blue HDi diesel powertrains. Their power range starts from 75 hp (or 55 kW) and goes up to 120 hp (or 88 kW). The vehicle needs less fuel and dismisses less CO2 (nearly 15%). Depending on the choice of engine there are five-speed and six-speed manual transmissions and an ETG6 gear box. The Partner Electric is equipped with a 67 hp (or 49 kW) electric motor and is capable of 105 miles (170 km) before the battery is low.

There are a seven-inch touch-screen infotainment system (which supports MirrorLink), USB, AUX, Bluetooth, voice recognition and navigation among other innovations. The Partner Tepee can be optionally equipped with parking sensors on the front. A reversing camera will also be optionally available on every offering, but the base version. The automaker will still offer the Grip Control system which, in comparison with a similar two-wheel drive layout, is believed to have improved traction.

The 2015 Peugeot Partner facelift assembly line will debut at the Motor Show in Algeirs next week. It is scheduled to reach dealerships in the forthcoming months.
