The latest manufacture to add a sport model to its mid-size van range is Peugeot, which has launched a new Expert Sport Edition.

Available to order now ahead of delivery in 2020, the Sport Edition becomes the new range-topping model for the Peugeot Expert range.

What’s special about the Peugeot Expert Sport Edition?

Sitting above the existing Asphalt trim level in the Expert line-up, the Sport Edition is more of a kit and stickers upgrade than a serious sport model.

As such, the only differences between Sport and Asphalt models are the addition of 17-inch Black Phoenix alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control and Sports decals, which you can see in the pictures are fitted to the side and the rear of the van.

In other words, there are no suspension changes and no bespoke bodywork – both of which you would expect to get with sporty versions of the Ford Transit Custom and Volkswagen Transporter.

You do a get a choice of three paint finishes, though: Cumulus Grey, Bianca White and Nera Black. 

Does the Expert Sport Edition come in lots of different versions?

It’s only available on the Standard wheelbase (Peugeot sells the Expert in shorter and longer versions as well), but you can choose between a regular panel van and a crew van with a second row of seats.

Initial supplies will be limited to 120hp versions of the panel van and 148hp (badged 150) versions of the crew van – both using 2.0-litre BlueHDi turbodiesel engines and a six-speed manual gearbox.

These are both heavyweight 1400-grade variants, which means the 120hp van has a massive 1,458kg payload rating and the 150hp crew van can carry 1,308kg. You can find full dimensions info on our dedicated Peugeot Expert Dimensions page.

Also available to order now for delivery later in 2020 are 180hp versions of both models. These come with a twin-turbo 2.0-litre BlueHDi engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission as standard, but a reduced 1200-grade payload rating and therefore not such immense practicality.

How much does the Peugeot Expert Sport Edition cost?

The 120hp panel van starts at £29,460, while the 150hp crew van comes in at £33,480.

If you want the 180hp version – of course you do – that’s priced from £32,960 in panel van form and £35,880 for a crew van.

You can order them now, with first deliveries expected in early 2020.
