The Expert Tepee is a car that looks like a van with windows. You can have between 5 and 9 seats depending on how long the vehicle is. There are two levels of finish, which gives you a combination of comfort and gadgets, one being more superior than the other.

New on the road prices start at £22,995 and go up to £28,695 for top end versions. However to get the extra seating in the third row is going to cost you between £600 and £640 by adding the AN11 and AN13 options.

Service Contract

A benefit of owning a Peugeot is their easy pay service plans. When the vehicle is on a 2 year, 20,000 mile service plan you could pay monthly to spread the payments.

Fuel Economy

Combined miles per gallon range from 30 to 45 depending on the Urban combined or extra urban cycle. The Fuel tank holds up to 80 litres of fuel.

CO 2 emissions

For the sheer size and practicality of this vehicle I’m amazed that the perfectly reasonable Co2 emissions. They range between 172g/km to 199g/km. This equates to Bands H to J in Britain.

Engines

You could choose either a 1.6HDI 90 with a 5-speed gearbox or a 2.0 HDI 120 with a six speed gearbox. The first being more economical than the later.

Suspension

With some special building the Peugeot people have created pneumatic suspension which keeps the height a vehicle drives at consent regardless of what its carrying in cargo or passengers.

Parking

Some car parks restrict access to vehicles that are over a certain height. The Expert Tepee has been designed with this in mind by not being higher than 1.9m.

Conclusion

For a people carrier of this size and versatility it is certainly worth considering when wanting a larger than average MPV. The seating configuration is very similar to the Mercedes Benz Viano but this car costs about £10,000 less. This car is ideally suited as a Taxi but for big families with lots of stuff to cart about it would also be an excellent choice.
