I thought I would tell you my own opinion about the partner teepee, it's brilliant. The quality and look of the car is a huge improvement over the previous partner combi model it replaces. The space is vital on a car derived van and it's enormous. I do think that the zenith roof which is an option must be included to lighten up the interior, also I do think the s and xtr (only trim with air con as standard)trims are the ones to go for. If you honestly are considering a partner teepee or berlingo multispace only go for the 1.6 110 petrol and 90hp diesel. If the buget will strech go for the 110hp diesel in xtr veriant and you can't do much wrong. The 75hp diesel and 90hp petrol are too underpowered for the car Overall I would strongly recommend the partner teepee or berlingo multispace to someone who wants huge amounts of space for not a lot of money. If you want to take trips to Ikea, the tip with junk and ferry the kids to and from school then this car is perfect for you. I personally would go for the partner teepee 1.6 hdi 110 xtr in amber red but if your budget doesn't stretch that far, the best all rounder is the berlingo multispace 1.6 90bhp vtr as it is significantly cheaper. The berlingo in my opinion doesn't look as good as the partner, but for someone on a budget, it's briliant. Also, remember the old version of the berlingo is still going Renamed berlingo first and if you just want space that is the car for you but equipment is spartan.
