Peugeot Traveller Will Be Shown At 2016 Geneva Motor Show
Recently, Mercedes has shown us the luxurious V-Class Exclusive. Today, Peugeot answers in French style.
It has the same target as the Mercedes V-Class: VIP shuttle sector. So it has to bring the best technology and style available at Peugeot. And it does: the Euro6, 2 liter BlueHDI engine develops 180 hp and 400 Nm of torque, while emitting a best-in-class 140 g /km CO2. It is compact, but roomy: while all the 9 seats are on position, there is still an available luggage space of 1.500 l. Its height, of only 1.90m is hard to find in its segment, allowing it to fit into covered car parks. It offers a unique XS version, which is perfect for the city, while still accommodates 9 people.
However, the Peugeot Traveller Business Plus has only 4 rear seats positioned face to face. The roof includes a unique-in-the-segment 3 zone climate control with soft diffusion, and mood lighting. The most efficient engine manages an excellent average fuel consumption of 5.1 l/100km, while the average fuel consumption of all the engine range is 5.4 l/100 km, a reference in the MPV segment. It is partly because of the new platform, which makes the car lighter with 100-400 kg than other MPVs.
And because it isn’t all about engines, the Traveller brings some interesting features in the class: automatic sliding side doors, head-up display, road sign reading and speed limiter recommendation are unique in segment. It also offers opening tailgate window, glass roof, Active SafetyBrake and automatic main beam switcher. Unprecedentedly in Peugeot history, a car is equipped with voice-control navigation system, 180° reverse camera and Driver Attention Alert.
