Peugeot Expert 2019 pricing and specs confirmed

Peugeot has relaunched its LCV range.

Peugeot has begun the relaunch of its light commercial vehicle (LCV) range in Australia with the Expert - first of three new vans - hitting local dealers on May 1st. 

Priced from $36,490 plus on-road costs, the Australian spec Expert will be available in two different lengths, three engine variants and two transmission options depending on model.

Competing with the Renault Trafic, Volkswagen Transporter, Toyota HiAce and Ford Transit Custom, this generation Expert has been available in Europe for a few years, though held back from Australia thanks to a lack of a proper automatic transmission. That has been rectified with an Aisin six-speed torque converter auto that’s available on the 110kW and 130kW engine variants. 

Powered by either a 1.6-litre or 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine - the former produces 85kW/300Nm and the latter is available in either 110kW/370Nm or 130kW/400Nm tunes - the Expert promises fuel efficiency as low as 5.2L/100km for the 85kW manual, and CO2 emissions from 137g/km. 

The Expert is available in two body lengths, with the entry level 85kW model only available in shorter form, and the 132kW model only available in the longer format. Choosing the shorter Expert offers up to 2.5 metres in load length, while the extended model offers up to 4.0 while the ‘Moduwork’ system with a rising passenger seat adds up to 1.1 metres more length. 

The standard length Expert offers 5.3 cubic metres of load space, while the longer model offers 6.6. Towing capacity is between 750kg and 2200kg. Its payload is between 1000 and 1300kg

The Expert offers 5.3 cubic metres of load space. The Expert offers 5.3 cubic metres of load space.

Based on the brand’s EMP2 platform that also underpins the Peugeot 308, 3008, 5008, 508 and Citroen C5 Aircross, the Expert is claimed to have car-like handling and class-leading refinement. 

Standard equipment for the Expert includes city AEB, four airbags, auto headlights and wipers, adaptive cruise control, auto high beam, front and rear parking sensors with a reversing camera, front and rear daytime running lights, a 7.0-inch multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, auto-folding mirrors and Peugeot’s Moduwork system, which allows owners to increase the load bay by 1.1 metres by pushing the passenger seat upwards and opening a flap.

At the centre of the cabin is a 7.0-inch multimedia system. At the centre of the cabin is a 7.0-inch multimedia system.
