There's just one engine in the range - a 1.3-litre diesel. It feels a little weedy at low revs, but it gets stronger above 1750rpm. You can also have it with a semi-automatic gearbox, but the slow shifts do nothing to speed up your progress.
Peugeot BIPPER TEPEE MPV ride & handling
The Bipper Tepee is based on a van, so you might expect it to feel a bit uncivilised. Not so. The suspension has been fettled to give a more passenger-friendly ride. It's soft, so it soaks up bumps pretty easily, but there is some pitch on undulating roads. The body leans over in bends, too, but there's decent grip and the steering is quick and direct.
Peugeot BIPPER TEPEE MPV refinement
There's not much road noise, and wind noise is barely audible, despite the car's blunt front end. The diesel engine stays smooth and reasonably quiet however you're treating it, but some bumps can occasionally knock through the rear suspension. The manual gearshift feels slack and imprecise, while the semi-auto gives very jerky shifts.
