Overall verdict

"The Peugeot Traveller is a large MPV that offers plenty of space for anyone that needs to carry as many as nine people in total, be that taxi drivers, airport shuttle operators or just large families."

Peugeot Traveller Front View

The Traveller is Peugeot’s rival to the likes of the Volkswagen Caravelle and the Ford Tourneo Custom and, like those two, is based on a van. In the Peugeot’s case it is the Expert panel van that forms the basis of the big MPV. 


Peugeot has attempted to tempt buyers in with value – it is less to buy brand new than the Ford and the Volkswagen, while it has some competitive running costs, which will be welcome news to those who need an nine-seater due to a large family with loads of mouths to feed.


There are two lengths of Traveller to pick from, although both are based on the same wheelbase. The shorter of the two has a decent-sized boot, with 603 litres of space on offer, but the longer model ups this to 989 litres below the top of the seat back alone. There are various configurations of seating, but if you really need to maximise the carrying capacity then you can take all bar the front row of seats out and enjoy up to 4554 litres of space.


There are four trims on offer. The Active and Allure models are aimed more at families and private users, but the Business and Business VIP are geared more towards the executive and chauffeur market, and are rivals to the likes of the Mercedes V-Class with fewer seats and more luxury kit.


The standard kit list is decent, though, with the Active coming with climate control including air conditioning for the rear passengers, rear parking sensors, automatic headlights and a full-size spare wheel. Twin side sliding doors are also standard, along with a split rear spot such as a car park. Allure adds things like satellite navigation, an upgraded stereo and a head up display.


There is plenty of room for passengers in the Traveller, with the basic model getting a bench in the second and third rows while the Allure gets three individual seats. Those with multiple children will welcome the three Isofix points. Most get eight seats, but the Business model comes with a double front passenger seat so you can fit three into each row.


As with the Expert van on which the Traveller is based, there is only one height available, but as this is lower than 2m it means it will fit under pretty much every height restriction in your average city.


The engines in the range are all diesels, with a 1.5-litre 120PS and three 2.0-litre versions with 120PS, 150PS and 177PS. Previous versions have included 1.6-litre diesels. The 1.5-litre engine is the star from an economy perspective, with an official fuel consumption of up to 47mpg. The 150PS 2.0-litre is the other pick, with lots of torque.


The Traveller might not be as good to drive as the Tourneo Custom and Caravelle – the steering is a little numb and it is a little noisy in the cabin, especially in the third row – but it has a comfortable ride for all three rows of passengers.


There might be a few niggles with the Traveller, but its running costs and smart appearance inside and out will make it appealing to businesses and large families alike.

Is the Peugeot Traveller right for you?

If you need to carry loads of people, be they adults or children, then you might have lots of pressures on your finances from different directions. The Peugeot Traveller’s competitive running costs and comparatively lower purchase price stands strongly in its favour as a result.


Plenty of seven-seater cars, be they MPVs or SUVs, don’t have much space in the third row, but that isn’t the case with the Traveller – all passengers get a decent amount of space and there is still room for luggage. If you are the designated driver for a netball team and need to take all the club kit then the Traveller could be ideal.

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

The Traveller gets a good amount of kit as standard, so those with an eye on value will be quite happy with not upgrading to anything bigger or more well specified. The 1.5-litre engine, which is also the cheapest on offer, is also a strong economic option as it is the most efficient in the range.


The 2.0-litre 150PS is another one to consider if you are likely to be carrying a heavy load a lot of the time, or if you are towing. The extra torque will be welcome on hilly routes and for overtakes for example.


If you want a little more luxury then the Allure is well equipped, but it is a serious step up in money, with it costing more than £6,500 more brand new.

What other cars are similar to the Peugeot Traveller?

The closest model to the Traveller is the Citroen SpaceTourer, which is fundamentally identical to the Peugeot with Citroen’s twist on it. As of 2019 the same goes for the Vauxhall Vivaro Life.


Other van-based MPVs from mainstream manufacturers include the Ford Tourneo Custom and the Volkswagen Caravelle. The Mercedes-Benz V-Class offers a little more luxury and is a rival for the range-topping versions of the Traveller.
