Peugeot has released its latest comer to a growing range of multi-space family vehicles – the Bipper Tepee.
Offering a practical and easy to drive compact shape the Bipper Tepee is an innovative, versatile and economical entry to the segment.
Measuring 3959mm in length by 1684mm across the Bipper Tepee is compact in size yet still offers five seats and a generous 356-litre cargo capacity with all seats in place. This can be expanded to 884-litres in utilising the 60:40 split fold rear seat or to 2.5 cubic metres with the rear seat removed.
Its height of 1720mm (or 1780mm with roof racks) also ensures trouble-free access to underground car parks.
The rear load space is also very easily accessed thanks to the two sliding side doors or rear tailgate meaning even the narrowest of parking places won’t prevent you getting into the car or gaining access to objects stored in the boot.
Interior amenities include an MP3 compatible single-CD/tuner, air conditioning, electric mirrors and (front) windows, optional Bluetooth connectivity and optional rear parking sensors.
Riding on 15-inch steel wheels the Bipper Tepee is fitted with disc/drum brakes and ABS as standard. Hydraulic power steering and a tight turning circle of just 9.95 metres also makes it easy to park.
The spare wheel is located in the rear part of the floor and is a full size spare wheel.
Powered by a choice of a 1.4-litre petrol or diesel engines the Bipper Tepee offers frugal fuel consumption from as low as 3.74L/100km on the combined cycle.
The 1.4-litre petrol engine is fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox while the 1.4-litre HDi diesel engine is available with either a conventional five-speed manual gearbox or electronically controlled five-speed manual gearbox, perfect for use in busy urban areas.
Based on the standard manual gearbox, it uses an electro-hydraulic control system which ensures smooth and flexible gear changes and allows the driver to select either manual mode (gear changes controlled by the driver via the gear lever), or automatic mode (no gear changes carried out by the driver).
The Bipper Tepee is available on-road for £9,995 (AUD$17,500). Australian availability is yet to be confirmed.
