Distinctively styled and perfectly equipped to make modern family life easier, the Peugeot Rifter is a leisure activity vehicle that offers a unique on-board experience. Available in two lengths and able to seat up to seven, it’s a practical option with heaps of panache.
Family vehicles need to be robust, but that doesn’t mean they have to compromise on elegance. The Peugeot Rifter is proof of this: a short bonnet, elevated ride height and muscular proportions give it the exterior qualities of an SUV, while fluid lines and a striking front end ensure it turns heads even on the busiest of roads. At the rear, the three-claw lighting signature makes it instantly recognisable at night, and with functional touches such as roof bars, it’s ready to handle every adventure.
The cabin is modern and flexible, offering five or seven seats depending on whether you choose the Standard or Long length. The rear seats can fold individually with the Magic Flat system, while third row seats can be removed entirely, enabling you to accommodate the passenger and luggage you require. Practicality is enhanced thanks to a range of clever storage spaces, including underfloor compartments in the second row, and the ergonomic driving position and smart upholstery mean you and your family will remain comfy through every journey.
The choice between a 1.2-litre PureTech petrol and 1.5-litre BlueHDi engine is yours. Available on all trim levels, these units provide plenty of punch, getting you from A to B with ease no matter how full the cabin. The petrol option is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox and produces 109hp while emitting just 126g/km of CO2 – perfect for trips around town and out to the countryside. The diesel, meanwhile, develops 75hp and is well-suited to longer journeys thanks to its remarkable fuel efficiency.
Being a family vehicle, the Peugeot Rifter is replete with features to keep everyone protected. There’s an autonomous braking system, for example, which activates the car’s brakes if a collision is detected and you don’t react in time, thereby reducing the severity of the impact or avoiding it altogether. There’s also Active Lane Keeping Assistance to prevent you accidentally straying from your lane on long, tiring journeys. Options such as Blind Spot Monitoring and Adaptive Cruise Control Stop System, meanwhile, give you further peace of mind out on the road should you require it.
