The Citroën Space Tourer, Peugeot Traveller and Toyota Proace Verso will all be available in three lengths and will include interior seating for up to nine people – in Toyota’s case the first time the Japanese brand has offered such a large carrying capacity in an MPV.
They will go on sale alongside their van inspirations, the Citroën Dispatch, Peugeot Expert and Toyota Proace.
The three share a platform that also underpins the Citroën C4 Picasso but differ in engines. The Citroën and Peugeot use PSA Group units while the Toyota relies on diesel powertrains from the Japanese brand’s current range, though a hybrid is said to be among future plans.
Citroën and Peugeot are also showing concept versions of the MPVs at Geneva. The Space Tourer Hyphen, pictured at the top of this page, is said to combine MPV and SUV, with all-wheel-drive and muscular bodywork styling, while the Peugeot Traveller i-Lab is fitted out as a VIP shuttle with higher quality interior seating and a host of technology including a 32-inch tablet touchscreen, wi-fi and smartphone charging points.
