The normally-aspirated 1.9D model will carry up to 815kg, while the 2.0HDi will take up to 900kg. This gives the Expert a lugging ability competitive with the Ford Transit Connect. The load floor length is 2050mm and offers a maximum width of 1430mm above the wheel arches and a minimum if 1190mm between them. Load height is 1410 in the centre of the van, while the height for access via the rear doors is 1260mm and 1290mm at the side door. Door widths are 1060mm at the rear and a minimum of 810mm at the side door. The total load volume of the Expert is four cubic metres. If you're looking at the five-seat Combi, the load floor length with the rear seat in place is 980mm and with the rear seat folded it reaches 1220mm. All Experts also come with an overhead storage shelf in the front.

Safety and Security

The Expert comes with a driver's airbag as standard as well as seatbelt pre-tensioners and force limiters. Remote central locking is standard but you have to pay extra for anti-lock brakes.

Costs

The extra power for the HDi extra means you have to pay a small premium for the Expert over the Ford Transit Connect, and it won't hold its value quite as well as the Ford. However, you can expect close to 40mpg in everyday driving and an 80-litre fuel tank means it won't have to visit the petrol station very often. HDi models can go two years or 20,000 miles without a service (the 1.9D needs to visit the dealer every 10,000 miles or two years), and is covered by a three-year/60,000-mile warranty as long as it is serviced by a Peugeot dealer or authorised repairer.

Reliability

The Expert does without some of the complex electrical gadgets fitted to Peugeot cars so should suffer from fewer glitches. The diesel engines are capable of high mileage.
