We also have a separate Peugeot e-Expert dimensions page for the electric version of this van.
The Peugeot Expert medium van offers three body lengths, one roof height, and has one of the highest payload ratings of any mid-size van, making it a great choice if you need to carry heavy goods or equipment.
Practicality and size
Traditionally, medium vans come in two body lengths and two roof heights; like an increasing number of modern mid-size vans, the Peugeot Expert comes in a choice of three body lengths but only a single roof height.
The unrelated Mercedes-Benz Vito is another medium van with three lengths and one roof height.
Note that the Compact version of the Expert is particularly short. Making up in maneuverability what it loses in load space - though you may find a long-wheelbase small van from the sector below suits you better if that's a major concern.
Peugeot Expert exterior dimensions:
|Exterior width without mirrors||1,920mm|
|Exterior width with mirrors||2,204mm|
Note that although there is only a single roof height, that roof height is not quite the same across all three bodylengths.
The height given is for an unloaded van, and also varies depending on the payload rating, which those Expert vans rated to carry around 1,000kg sitting a little lower than those rated to carry 1,400kg (due to the additional strength of the rear suspensions for the latter).
Regardless of version, the relatively low height makes the Expert (and its cousins) ideal if you regularly need to fit a van under car park height restrictors.
However, if you need to transport taller objects that can't be placed on the their side you will need to look elsewhere. We'd suggest the Ford Transit Custom, as it's available in payload rating almost as high as the Peugeot Expert, and is a multiple winner of the Parkers Medium Van of The Year award.

The Moduwork load-though bulkhead comes as standard on all but the entry-level versions of the Expert, and includes not only a gate that allows you to pass longer items through the bulkhead, but also an outer passenger seat that folds out of the way to maximise space.
As you can see, this adds 0.5 cubic metres of load space.
All versions of the Expert come with at least six load lashing points and an internal light in the back. Usefully, there's a 12v socket in the load area, too.
Peugeot Expert Crew Van load area dimensions:
|Peugeot Expert Crew Van||Standard||Long|
|Maximum load length||2,017mm||2,365mm|
|Load length at mid-height||1,352mm||1,700mm|
|Maximum load height||1,337mm||1,339mm|
|Maximum load width||1,618mm|
|Width between wheelarches||1,258mm|
|Maximum number of seats||6|
|Max height under row 2 seat||232mm|
|Load volume under row 2 seat||73 litres (0.73m3)|
The Expert also comes as a six-seater Crew Van, which is available in the Standard and Long body sizes.
Peugeot Expert door dimensions:
|Side door max width||745mm||935mm|
|Side door max height||1,238mm||1,241mm|
|Rear doors max width||1,282mm|
|Rear doors max height||1,220mm|
All Expert panel vans come with twin sliding side doors as standard, and a full steel bulkhead.
The side doors can be motorised as an optional extra, including an automatic opening system that works when you wave your foot under the rear bumper. Clever, but we've found it doesn't always work reliably.
At its very best, the Peugeot Expert can transport nearly 1,450kg of payload - making it the joint best medium van for payload at the time of writing November 2021).
Peugeot Expert payload rating:
|Peugeot Expert||Compact max payload||Standard max payload||Long max payload|
|BlueHDi 145 auto||1,412kg||1,408kg|
The Expert's maximum payload varies with engine, body size and fitted equipment - so although the above represent the maximum for the avaialble variants at the time of writing, the maximum payload allowed for a specific van will change with the trim level and any extras that increase the kerb weight.
Peugeot Expert towing capacity:
|Peugeot Expert||Unbraked towing capacity||Braked towing capacity|
|Compact BlueHDi 100||750kg||1,800kg|
|Standard BlueHDi 100||750kg||1,800kg|
|Long BlueHDi 100||750kg||2,000kg|
|Standard BlueHDi 145||750kg||2,500kg|
|Long BlueHDi 145||750kg||2,500kg|
