In a class of its own, the new Peugeot Rifter embodies free-spirited motoring and complete flexibility. Dubbed a leisure activity vehicle, it’s enormously adaptable, making it perfect for a range of lifestyles: two lengths and up to seven seats ensures even the largest family can be accommodated in comfort.
Whether your travels take you into the centre of town for the school run or into the great outdoors on a camping holiday, the Peugeot Rifter will make the transition with ease. Elegant lines, chunky curves and stylish alloy wheels ensure it stands out in traffic, while the short bonnet and high ground clearance mark its capability when tackling rough terrain.
Inside, the intelligent cabin has been carefully crafted for optimum practicality and a high level of comfort. Modular features such as the sliding side doors make access easy for kids and those with restricted mobility, while individually folding rear seats provide maximum adaptability, so you can accommodate any combination of passengers and luggage. Opt for the GT Line model and things get even cleverer – the Zenith® roof adds extra in-car storage capability as well as four large glass panels that flood the interior with natural light.
Every new Rifter model is available with plenty of technology to enhance the experience of everyone aboard. As standard, you’ll enjoy air conditioning, a DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity, which enables you to stream music and stay in touch on the move. Allure models add rear parking sensors for easier manoeuvring, as well as rear tray tables for the convenience of your passengers. Choose the GT Line variant and you’ll also benefit from the Connected 3D Navigation system and Mirror Screen® functionality, which interfaces with your smartphone to display apps on the colour touchscreen.
Performance is key in a people carrier, which is why the Peugeot Rifter boasts the brand’s innovative BlueHDI and PureTech engines options. Powerful and energetic, they produce remarkable acceleration for a model of the Rifter’s size: it can sprint from 0-62mph in only 10.4 seconds. That doesn’t mean efficiency is compromised though – achieving up to 65.7mpg and emitting as little as 114g/km of CO2, it’s one of the most cost-effective and clean options in its class.
A plethora of driver assistance systems are in place to support every journey too. From Advanced Grip Control for improved traction in slippery conditions to Lane Keep Assist, which alerts you if you begin to stray while cruising, you’re fully protected at all times.
