The famous line of PSA’s commercial and passenger vehicles came completely new recently. New Berlingo and Partner models are here, as well as the all-new Opel Combo. The new generation came a year ago and it has brought a lot of novelties, including a new chassis and lots of mechanical upgrades. Of course, there is a new styling as well, adapted to the brand’s newest design philosophy. Considering the recent redesign, we are pretty sure that the 2019 Peugeot Partner won’t feature too many important changes. Moreover, it should continue in the same way, featuring the same design, styling, interior layout, and engines.
2019 Peugeot Partner Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, the new Partner continues to sticks closely to its famous sibling from Citroen, widely known as Berlingo. While the Berlingo continues with both passenger and commercial versions in the offer, the Partner now comes primarily as a commercial vehicle. On the other side, the passenger version is now called Rifter. However, two models are practically identical when it comes to mechanics and exterior layout.
Each of three models from different brands comes with the same overall shape, while each model comes with its own face. Of course, the Partner is adapted to Peugeot’s newest design language, which is characterized by a pretty conservative approach. It seems quite opposite to the Berlingo, which Borrows Cactus’ attractive front end, highlighted by multiple lighting areas.
2019 Peugeot Partner Interior
So far, pretty much everyone who sat inside this minivan prices its interior layout. Although we are talking about a commercial vehicle, the interior quality is on a pretty high level. Compared to its siblings, it comes with a couple of distinctive details. Of course, you will notice Peugeot’s unique steering wheels, which is flatted on both bottom and top and looks like it directly came from some racing car. Also, it comes with its own instrument cluster, which is mostly analog and looks pretty attractive. Rest of the cabin is pretty much the same as in Berlingo and Combo. That means an attractive dashboard layout, which is highlighted by a large tablet-like touchscreen. Rest of the dash, as well as complete cabin, features plenty of soft-touch surfaces and materials that llooklike they can last for decades.
Besides goor quality, this minivan offers a pretty comfortable ride. Of course, the seating possition is slighlty higher compared to passenger cars, we would say a typical MPV position. Seats are massive and pretty supportive. As we already mentioned, the Partner is a commercial vehicle, so count on a huge storage are at back. If you need a passenger Partner, this model now comes as Rifter. In both cases, the cabin is pretty functional and practical. There are numerous storadge compartments around the cabin, while the list of standard features is pretty long.

All engines come in a pair with a manual gearbox. A most powerful version of both diesel and gasoline engine also comes with a new 8-speed automatic transmission. Latest reports suggest that the company also prepares new engines for the near future, including some electrified versions.
