The next step up from the Bipper, the Partner is an attractively styled mid-size van that boasts cost-effective engines and offers a comfortable ride. The Partner is available in two body styles (Panel Van and Crew Van) and three grades (S, SE and Professional).
Panel Vans options are available in two lengths: 4.38 metres and 4.63 metres, while Crew Vans come in the latter length only. Asymmetric rear doors open 180 degrees, enabling easy access to the cargo bay. Height-adjustable headlights and a third (high-level) brake light are also a feature. Body colours range from Bianca White or Black to Clipper Blue or Ardent Red.
All Panel Van models feature a load space that ranges from 3,300 litres to 3,700 litres, and a payload that starts at 625kg, rising to 750kg and then 850kg. Panel Vans come with a frame protector which is positioned behind the driver’s seat. Crew Van iterations offer a load space that starts at 2,400 litres and peaks at 3,300 litres, as well as a maximum payload of 744kg. All models come with six tie-down hooks for securing cargo. A height-adjustable driver’s seat and a rake-and-reach-adjustable steering column are available with all models. Crew Vans feature an individual front passenger seat and a folding second row of three seats, as well as a movable bulkhead
A choice of three 1.6-litre engines (75bhp and 100bhp diesel units and a 98bhp petrol alternative) are available, each paired with five-speed manual transmission. CO2 emissions from diesel engines range from 108g/km to 112g/km. Fuel consumption figures range from 68.9mpg to 65.7mpg. All figures are dependent on the particular van’s dimensions. Crew Vans come with a 100bhp engine option only, which returns 65.7mpg and 113g/km of CO2.
An All-Terrain Vehicle version is available too, offering four drive modes, Anti-Slip Regulation, upgraded tyres and more.
A radio and CD player provide audio entertainment and can be operated using steering wheel-mounted controls. Electronic Stability Control, Hill-Start Assist, Anti-lock Braking System, Emergency Brake Assist and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution are featured as standard. Whenever you brake suddenly, hazard lights are automatically activated.
