The PEUGEOT design provides this segment with the new distinctive features of the brand’s SUV and car range, just as its assertive design exudes strength and elegance.
Its new base, adapted from the ‘Efficient Modular Platform 2’ (EMP2), provides top quality, efficiency and record fuel consumption levels for the segment.
Its Euro 6 BlueHDi engines are equipped with the most efficient pollution control technology on the market with a SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system upstream of the DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter).
Already a validated solution since July 2013, they combine driving enjoyment and efficient performance, offering up to 180hp and 400Nm. Due to this technology, the PEUGEOT Traveller range boasts an average CO2 emission level of just 140g/km, crowning it best-in-class in the segment.
Multiple configurations up to 9 seats and a wide range of equipment, sometimes exclusive in the segment, make the PEUGEOT Traveller a vehicle that adapts to everyday life.
With the importance of safety and crash protection, the PEUGEOT Traveller was awarded a top 5-star rating in the Euro NCAP tests, the results of which were released in December 2015.
“The PEUGEOT Traveller fully applies the brand’s expansion strategy by positioning us on the growth sectors of the MPV and VIP Shuttle,” remarked Maxime Picat, Managing Director at PEUGEOT. “Through its innovative design, the PEUGEOT Traveller gives a new dimension to PEUGEOT’s upmarket shift.”
Also reacting to the all-new MPV, Laurent Blanchet, PEUGEOT Product Director said:” With the PEUGEOT Traveller, PEUGEOT’s large passenger car family is expanding with a MPV that can accommodate up to nine people with top-quality comfort and space for all seated passengers.”
