Peugeot Rifter

(2018 - present)

The Peugeot Rifter is a small van-based people carrier. Based on the Peugeot Partner compact van, it is almost identical to the Citroën Berlingo and Vauxhall Combo Life.

The Rifter is available with either five or seven seats, in either short or long versions. The long model gets extra boot space behind the rear seats. The Rifter is pitched as a more flexible vehicle than a conventional car. In five-seat form, it is very similar in length to a family hatchback like the Peugeot 308 but, owing to its van platform, can carry a lot more kit when you start folding the seats down.

The Peugeot Rifter has received positive ratings from the UK motoring media. There are not as many reviews available as we would normally see for a family car, but this is more of a niche model. The Rifter has been praised for its versatility and practicality, although most reviews point out that its van origins are still evident – particular in terms of overall refinement and interior quality.
