Overall verdict

"The Peugeot Partner Tepee is proof that finding practical family transport need not be a vastly expensive endeavour."

Peugeot Partner Tepee Side View

The Partner Tepee shares many elements with a couple of other notable vehicles – the Partner panel van and the Citroen Berlingo Multispace. Despite sharing a basic shape and platform with a van, the Tepee is a remarkably car-like vehicle to drive and was designed to be a people carrier right from the outset. It was on sale from 2008 to 2018 before being replaced by the Peugeot Rifter, a model that continued the van-derived MPV theme.


There is no getting away from the Tepee’s van roots, with the boxy styling meaning that it will never win any awards for its looks. However, this upright and even shape has its rewards on the inside, as there is plenty of room for a family and all their junk. The Tepee comes with five seats as standard, while the top trims could be upgraded to seven seaters.


The middle row consists of three individual seats, which can be folded flat to give you a huge amount of storage space. The boot is big enough at 675 litres with five seats in place and this grows to a massive 3000 litres with all the seats dropped. This isn’t quite as much as the van on which the Tepee is based, because of the extra space taken by the doors and seats, but it isn’t far off.


The van roots are reflected in the materials too, with the plastics around the cabin hard and workmanlike. On the plus side, this means that your kids will have to work even harder to try and break them and will probably still not succeed.


The engine range is biased towards diesels. There were three power outputs in the range, all 1.6-litre engines, with 75PS, 100PS and 120PS on offer. The petrol options are a 98PS 1.6-litre and a 110PS 1.2-litre. The most economical of the lot is the 100PS 1.6-litre diesel, which offers a claimed average economy of 68.9mpg, although that is based on the older NEDC testing regime, so something in the mid-50s is a more realistic expectation. None of the engines are particularly fast though, with 0-62mph not coming in anything quicker than 11.4 seconds.


Despite this lack of pace, the Tepee is accomplished on the road. There is a decent amount of grip and the steering is responsive enough to make cornering at speed and around town that bit easier. There is no getting away from the upright nature, though, and the soft suspension resulting in a bit of body lean if you head through the corners carrying too much speed.


This soft suspension isn’t enough to iron out all potholes and bumps, though, and the ride is a little rough over poorer road surfaces. It settles down at motorway speeds though.


There are two trims available, with the two different versions very distinct to one another. The Active is the more road-going of the two, but is relatively basic in what it comes with. The Outdoor is the more rugged, in look and intent – it gets roof bars, underbody protection and raised suspension. It gets more kit on the inside too, though with a touchscreen digital radio, Bluetooth, dual-zone air conditioning and front and rear parking sensors all added.


It might not be the most modern feeling of vehicles, but the Tepee is a fantastically practical way to carry a family and a vast amount of kit.

Is the Peugeot Partner Tepee right for you?

Some families just need a vehicle that will carry a lot of stuff, and the Partner Tepee fulfils that brief fantastically. It is unashamed about its van underpinnings and it offers a huge amount of practicality as a result. 


It will easily take five adults, thanks to its three individual rear seats, and the huge amount of space means they can all take a decent sized bag for a group holiday away.


The lack of luxury also means that it was never an expensive vehicle, which means that it makes a good value used buy, too.

What's the best Peugeot Partner Tepee model/engine to choose?

The speed and performance difference between the petrol and the diesel engines is negligible enough that it is not worth going for the petrols – the extra economy of the diesels is more in keeping with the sensible nature of the Tepee.


The mid-range, 100PS version is the most economical so shades it as being the pick of the range, although the gap in price between that and the 120PS wasn’t huge when it was new, and won’t be that big on the used market so the more powerful option is a strong option too.


The Outdoor trim brings more kit and more practicality, so is the one that makes more sense. It’s no off roader, but the under-body protection and raised ride height means it will cope better with the occasional track and field excursion that bit happier – perfect for a family camping trip.

What other cars are similar to the Peugeot Partner Tepee?

The other major van manufacturers all have their own take on the van-based MPV, with the Ford Tourneo Connect and Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Life the others to consider if you want to get the most space for your cash.


The more expensive versions of the Partner Tepee with lots of optional extras are close to more conventional MPVs in terms of price. This brings the likes of the Renault Scenic, Citroen C4 Picasso and Peugeot 3008 into contention.
