Peugeot's Expert van has retained for the second year running the coveted What Van? Small Panel Van of the Year award 2010.

The Peugeot Expert compact panel van is the ideal choice for today's van users as it can carry a respectable payload in respect to its weight, doesn't take up too much space in busy urban areas, is easy to park and benefits from car-like driving dynamics. Available in two wheelbase options and two roof heights it can accommodate up to 7.0 m3 of cargo and payloads of between 1,000 kg and 1,200 kg depending on model.

It is powered by Peugeot's class-leading HDi diesel engines; a 1.6 litre 90 bhp or a 2.0 litre producing either 120 or 136 bhp.

Load volume starts at 5.0 m3 in the L1 H1 version, increases to 6.0 m3 in the long wheelbase L2 H1 version and extends to 7.0 m3 in the high-roof L2 H2 version. All versions also benefit from two sliding side loading doors to ensure good access to each side of the load area.

The load area has a maximum length of 2255 mm in the standard version and 2586 mm in the long wheel base version and a height of 1450 mm to 1750 mm.

Up front the Peugeot Expert can accommodate three in its comfortable and supportive seats, and all occupants benefit from three point inertia reel seatbelts with force limiters and height adjustment on the two outer seatbelts. Safety is also a strong point of the Peugeot Expert. All models have ABS with emergency brake assist and ESP is available as an option. A driver's airbag is fitted as standard and passenger and side airbags are available as an option with the single passenger seat option. A driver's ladder frame protector and steel cargo stop are fitted as standard on all models to protect the driver in an accident situation.

Driving dynamics have always been a strength of Peugeot light commercial vehicles due to Peugeot's wealth of expertise in this field. The Expert is based on the same platform as the Peugeot 807 MPV, ensuring high levels of responsiveness, safety and comfort whatever the size of the load.

The Peugeot Expert is also available as a window van, floor cab and the Expert Tepee people carrier.

Dynamic, safe, practical and versatile the Peugeot Expert is the ideal van for today's busy van users.
