Practical and roomy
Added: 12th of October 2016
I bought a Peugeot Partner Tepee because friends had owned two of them in which I had travelled many miles. A brand new Family model was offered to me by my local dealer, Arbury of Bromsgrove, at a very good discount and as their reputation locally is very good I bought the car. I have been very pleased with it and it does everything and more than I expected included towing. Fuel consumption is in the fifties and a recent 70 miles journey to Oxford at a steady 50 mph resulted in 60 mpg. Performance is quite spritely for a car of this size, with useful acceleration when required. Considering that the price I paid was the same as for a smaller family hatchback it was a bargain at the time and I have no regrets over my purchase. The shape may be boxy but it is oh so roomy because of this, with the seats folded down (an easy operation)I have even carried an armchair in the back. Of the 30 people who attend a club to which I belong, no less than 6 of us drive Partner Tepees or the equivalent Citroen Berlingo. When they finally cease manufacture, and it has been on the market for nearly ten years, I doubt that any replacement would be as practical.
