The NEC in Birmingham plays host to the Commercial Vehicle Show next month, where manufacturers Peugeot and Citroen will debut the latest generation Expert and Dispatch medium sized vans.
The Peugeot Traveller and Citroen Spacetourer were both unveiled as passenger vehicles at the Geneva Motor Show earlier in the year, together with the latest incarnation from Toyota - the Proace.
Available with two or three seats up front, in three lengths, the vans offer 1400 kg of useful load with a useful length of 4 m and up to 6.6 m3 of useful space.
The Standard and Long versions, at 4.95 m and 5.30 m, are designed for the core market, whilst the Compact 4.60m version, allows loads of up to 5.1 m3 and 1400 kg, with a useful length of 3.32m.
The reduction in size and overhang means the new vans offer more in the way of manoeuvrability, a particular strong point amongst professional drivers who work in urban areas on a daily basis. Similarly, a reduced height of 1.90m means easier entry to multi-storey car parks.
Euro 6 BlueHDi engine options range from 95 hp to 180 hp, whilst the most efficient version offers emissions of 133 g/km of CO2.
Extras include voice-control connected 3D navigation and real-time traffic information; Driver Attention Alert; Moduwork flexible passenger space; head-up display and sign reading system; VisioPark 1 reversing camera with 180° overhead rear view and rear view zoom; and hands-free sliding doors. Safety options include nifty features suchg as Active Safety Brake and automatic main beam lamps.
The vans come in a number of seating configurations: Crew/double cabs, with five or six fixed or fold-up seats; Platform cab as a conversion base; and Combi as a people-carrier with up to nine seats.
