A smart-looking MPV that can accommodate eight people with ease, the Peugeot Traveller is also extremely versatile and surprisingly affordable to run. Large families and organisations of all kinds alike will find the Traveller to be an exceedingly prudent automotive investment.
The Traveller comes in Compact, Standard and Long lengths, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your requirements. Each model comes with twin sliding side doors that allow easy access to the vehicle. A number of labour-saving features include electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors. Front fog lamps and LED daytime running lights are fitted as standard too, as are automatic headlamps and windscreen wipers.
Thanks to the vehicle’s soft suspension, a comfortable ride can be enjoyed by all, and the driver has the additional benefit of adjustable seating and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel. The person behind the wheel is also provided with a good view of the road ahead. Standard features include dual-zone climate control and air conditioning, which makes it easy to establish an agreeable interior temperature.
All models come with three rows of seats. The smallest (Compact) variant possesses a 280-litre boot space when all seats are in place. With the rearmost row removed, this increases to 640 litres; with all but the front seats detached, cargo capacity rises to a not-inconsiderable 1,060-litre capacity. Peak load space for Standard and Long iterations is 2,100 litres and 3,700 litres respectively.
Entry-level Compact iterations of the easy-to-drive, and surprisingly manoeuvrable Traveller are fitted with a 2.0-litre 148bhp diesel engine. This manages up to 53.3mpg, while producing a 139g/km CO2 emission figure. Standard and Long variants, meanwhile, are typically powered by a 1.6-litre unit, with power outputs of 94bhp and 113bhp respectively. This returns as much as 52.3mpg (Standard) and 54.3mpg (Long), and produces emissions as low as 139g/km (and 137g/km).
Technology and safety
Each model comes with a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system that features, among other things, DAB radio, which delivers an array of stations in crystal-clear sound quality. AUX and USB inputs and Bluetooth connectivity are included too, as is Peugeot Mirror Screen, which allows a compatible smartphone’s display to be relayed via the car’s touchscreen.
All good MPVs come with a five-star Euro NCAP rating – including the Traveller, of course. The vehicle features a wide range of driver aids and passive safety features, such as Cruise Control, parking sensors and a 180-degree camera. Driver Attention Alert features too, which recommends taking a break at timed intervals – and monitors driver vigilance at speeds of over 40mph.
