Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The Rifter is slightly more expensive than its Citroën Berlingo and Vauxhall Combo Life siblings. However, it still massively undercuts mainstream MPVs such as the Volkswagen Touran, whether you're buying with cash or on a PCP finance deal.

Insurance group ratings that vary from 10 to 18, depending on power output and trim level, help keep costs low, too. Meanwhile, the Rifter should prove economical: the 1.5 Blue HDi 75 manual returns an official average fuel consumption figure of 68.9mpg, with CO2 emissions of 109g/km. Even the top-spec 1.5 BlueHDi 130 GT Line manages 65.7mpg and 114g/km of CO2 when fitted with the optional automatic gearbox.

Overview

It may not have the class of more mainstream MPVs, but the Peugeot Rifter offers class-leading space, and is surprisingly good to drive.

  • Tremendous space
  • Lots of practicality
  • Comfy ride
  • Slightly more expensive than the Citroën Berlingo
  • Infotainment system is fiddly
  • Some cheap feeling interior trim
