► New MPV on the Geneva show floor
► Modular features
► Should cost under £20,000
The 2018 Geneva motor show is full of supercars such as the Rimac C_Two and Ferrari 488 Pista, but one of the most important cars on the showfloor could be this: the Peugeot Rifter. Okay, so it’s not the most glamorous thing at Geneva – or the Peugeot stand, as that has to be the 508 – but it still promises to be the ultimate MPV for families and adventure-going people.
It’s available in stretched and standards formats, and is also modular, so you can mix and match the feature you care about. For example, the Rifter could come with two sliding doors, and opening tailgate,seven seats next year – or just lots of cubby holes.
We’ve sat in the interior, and while it’s not the most luxurious space – that’s to be expected for a car of this price range. However, it’s still available with optional CarPlay and Android Auto, too, thanks to Peugeot’s iCockpit 8-inch infotainment system.
There’s actually a good amount of tech in the Rifter, too. Adaptive cruise control with lane departure as well as blind spot detection offers a good extra dose of safety, while an optional reversing camera should make parking easier, too. Peugeot will offer the Rifter with a 1.2-litre petrol with a six-speed box, or a diesel with the same transmission – or an eight-speed auto.
How much will it cost?
Peugeot hasn’t released prices for the Rifter yet, but we’re expecting it to start at under £20,000
