Performance & drive

What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is

The Peugeot Partner's 1.5 BlueHDi diesel engine which is likely to be the starting point for most buyers is found across Peugeot's passenger car range, and is available in 74bhp, 99bhp and 128bhp forms; we’d steer you towards the mid-range option, which Peugeot predicts will be the most popular choice. It has a decent mix of impressive fuel consumption and torque that will work well in both city driving and on the motorway.

If your usage will lean towards more long-distance driving, however, consider the 128bhp diesel option for the simple reason that it gets a standard six-speed manual gearbox, rather than the five-speed ’box that comes with the lesser engines, helping to improve fuel economy. If an automatic gearbox is your preference, the most powerful engine is also available with an eight-speed automatic gearbox option that is well matched to the Partner.
