Award-winning Peugeot dealer Arthurs of Wrexham has saluted the announcement that the all-new Peugeot Partner has won International Van of the Year 2019 - ahead of its official launch in January.

Dealer Principal Philip Corfield has warmly welcomed the van's prestigious election as the award recognises the Peugeot team's commitment to a project that is at the heart of the brand's development strategy.

"This is very much in keeping with the Arthurs Peugeot philosophy in Wrexham," said Philip. "We are very much a team committed to the brand and this latest international recognition of the Partner strengthens our resolve to make life easier for its users.

"The award is particularly pleasing because new light commercial vehicles are judged by journalists and publishers from 25 different European countries.

"The all-new Peugeot Partner stood out through the exclusive and world-first adoption in this segment of the Peugeot i-Cockpit which offers a new driving experience for greater productivity.

"Two other major innovations that attracted attention were the Overload Indicator for safe loading within the maximum authorised payload and the Surround Rear Vision which provides blind-spot camera vision,” he added.
