Peugeot will launch a highly specced version of the Expert van next year with a range of styling revisions and additional standard kit
Peugeot has a new version of the Expert van ready to launch early next year, called the Expert Sport Edition. The new model will sit above the brand’s existing Expert Asphalt model, sporting a range of cosmetic enhancements and additional standard equipment. Prices start from £29,460 with first deliveries due to arrive in the second half of 2020.
Buyers can have the Peugeot Expert Sport Edition as either a three-seat panel van or six-seat crew van, although both versions will only be offered as a standard wheelbase model. Revisions include a fresh set of black 17-inch alloy wheels, new sports decals on the van’s flanks, two-zone air conditioning and a choice of three unique paint finishes.
Peugeot will only offer the Expert Sport Edition with its turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, which is available in three states of tune. The entry-level powertrain produces 118bhp and 340Nm of torque, while returning a claimed combined economy figure of 53.2mpg. The engine can only be specced in the panel van body style with a six-speed manual gearbox.
The mid-range Peugeot Sport Edition is priced from £33,480. It’s powered by a more potent version of the same 2.0-litre diesel engine, which develops 148bhp and 370Nm of torque. Fuel economy remains the same as the entry-level model, although buyers can only have the engine in a six-seat crew van with a six-speed manual gearbox.
Peugeot’s range-topping Expert Sport Edition is priced from £32,960. For the money, buyers get the most powerful version of PSA’s 2.0-litre BlueHDi engine, which develops 178bhp and 400Nm of torque. It’s fitted to the Expert’s three-seat panel van body as standard but, for an extra £2,920, buyers can have the same powertrain in the six-seat crew van instead.
Like its lesser siblings, the Peugeot Expert Sport Edition panel van offers a maximum load volume of 5,300 litres and can carry payloads up to 1,458kg in weight. The crew van model has a smaller cargo bay, due to the second seating row, offering a maximum load volume of 3,200 litres and maximum payload capacity of 1,308kg.
