PSA Group has suggested a initial central picture of a new tiny van/van-based MPV range. The deputy for a Citroen Berlingo, Peugeot Partner and Vauxhall Combo (which is now partial of a PSA Group indication operation following a Vauxhall takeover) has been teased with a close-up of a thee new noses a models will wear. It’s transparent that PSA Group has left to a lot of bid to make a 3 models as particular as possible, and clearly they all underline a pattern cues of their particular marques.
Looking closely during a 3 cars in a image, it’s transparent that a front of a new indication has been designed so that as most of a front finish can be reworked to fit any brand. The 3 vans have a same carp line, and a light clusters finish in a same position on any model. But all from a carp forwards looks opposite on all 3 cars.

The Citroen has a nose matching to a C3 and C3 Aircross, with a high-set slim grille with apart light clusters next on a dull nose, while some corpulent Airbump-style physique cladding is used serve down and on a sides of a car.
The Vauxhall facilities a grille and headlights that demeanour probably matching to a recently launched Crossland X and Grandland X, and looks a lot some-more regressive than a Citroen.
Meanwhile a Peugeot has a demeanour that brings it into line with a 2008 and 3008 crossovers, with corpulent lights and black cosmetic cladding serve down. There are cosmetic wheelarches, too, suggesting that there will be a top-spec Outdoor model, only like a stream Partner.
In a press recover concomitant a new image, PSA Group has reliable that a new outpost operation will be formed on a growth of a EMP2 height already used in a series of other Peugeot and Citroen models. This means a firm’s latest pushing and reserve aids can be used on a new vans and MPVs, while they should still broach front-running cargo and people carrying ability.
The interiors of a 3 models will also have graphic differences, so design a demeanour matching to other models in a particular Citroen, Peugeot and Vauxhall ranges.
The new vans, including a Vauxhall, will be built in a PSA Group factories in Vigo, Spain and Mangualde, Portugal. The stream Combo was combined as partial of a corner try with Fiat, and is built alongside a Doblo in Turkey.
We’ve already spied a new Citroen Berlingo MPV on test, and even behind a disguise, it’s transparent that these 3 vans will continue with a normal two-box outpost shape. There’s a some-more honest windscreen and shorter bonnet, while all 3 models will expected demeanour matching to any other, save for opposite tail-light designs during a back.
