PSA and Toyota have taken the wraps off three new MPVs that are programmed to go on sale next year.
Meet the Peugeot Traveller, Citroën SPACETOURER, and the Toyota PROACE. These are the latest products born from the PSA Peugeot Citroën and Toyota Motor Europe alliance and all will be available as MPVs for private use. The vehicles have also been engineered as shuttle versions for business use. The trio will be assembled at PSA Peugeot Citroën’s plant of Sevelnord, in Valenciennes, France.
All three automakers worked on the development of these new vehicles as part of a collaboration that started in 2012 and will continue beyond the end of the decade. The joint effort focuses on the mid-size, light commercial vehicle, shuttle, and Combi segments to enable production cost optimizations and accelerated development.
Technical details concerning the Peugeot Traveller, Citroën SPACETOURER, and the Toyota PROACE are not available at this point, but we do know the three will share the same engines, equipment, and features.
If we were to take our pick, we’d go for the Peugeot Traveller, but maybe it’s just because of its more appealing orange paint. The three look virtually the same, albeit with some minor differences in the headlights and front bumper.
The trio will be revealed in full next year in March at the Geneva Motor Show before going on sale in Europe shortly thereafter.
