For The Partner has a spacious interior and is fun to drive. Urban trim keeps the price nice and low.
Against For relatively little more money, you can get into a diesel-engined model, which provides a better balance of grunt and economy. Urban trim is a little too basic.

The Partner Tepee is comfortable and competent, and this is a decent engine, but you’d be better off with one of the diesel-engined models.

The Peugeot Partner Tepee is about as spacious and practical as budget MPVs come, with removable rear seats, a large boot opening with a low loading edge, dozens of storage spaces and big sliding doors to make it a great family holdall.
Despite its ungainly proportions, it's surprisingly fun to drive, too, probably because it's based on the 308's platform. It does lean an awful lot in the corners though. Avoid the sluggish 1.6 petrol and instead go for the mid-power diesel engine, which is best suited to the car and balances performance well with fuel economy.
The interior focuses on practicality (with many family-oriented items) rather than luxury, but the finish is perfectly acceptable and everything feels sturdy. Equipment levels are low, though, especially on the entry-level Urban models, and raising the Tepee to your desired level of specification may well become an expensive exercise.
