The Peugeot Expert medium van offers three body lengths and three gross vehicle weights (GVW), but only a single roof height.
Together with its Citroen Dispatch cousin, it also offers the greatest payload rating in the mid-size van class.
On this page you'll full details of all the Expert's dimensions, load area info, payload capacity and towing capability.

You typical medium van will usually come in two body lengths and two roof heights; the Peugeot Expert comes in a choice of three body lengths but only a single roof.
We'd consider this unusual, if not for the fact that the Expert is closely related to the Citroen Dispatch, Toyota Proace and Vauxhall Vivaro (from 2010) - and each of these is available with the same selection of configurations.
So, if you need to transport tall objects that can't be placed on their side, you may as well look elsewhere. But if you're after a van that won't have trouble with car park height restrictors, the Expert is definitely worth a closer look.
The Compact version is particularly short, too. Making up in maneuverability what it loses in load space.
Peugeot Expert exterior dimensions
These are the main exterior dimensions of the Peugeot Expert panel van:
|Peugeot Expert exterior dimensions||Compact||Standard||Long|
|Exterior length (mm)||4,609||4,959||5,309|
|Exterior height (mm)||1,905||1,890||1,940|
|Exterior width without mirrors (mm)||1,920||1,920||1,920|
|Exterior width with mirrors (mm)||2,204||2,204||2,204|
Note that although there is only a single roof height, that roof height is not the same across all three bodylengths.
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.
Peugeot Expert load area dimensions
These are the main load compartment interior dimensions of the Peugeot Expert, including info on the Moduwork load-through bulkhead.
|Peugeot Expert load area dimensions||Compact||Standard||Long|
|Maximum load length (mm)||2,160||2,510||2,860|
|Maximum load height (mm)||1,397||1,397||1,397|
|Maximum load width (mm)||1,628||1,628||1,628|
|Load length with Moduwork (mm)||3,324||3,674||4,024|
|Width between the wheelarches (mm)||1,258||1,258||1,258|
|Maximum load volume (cu m)||4.6||5.3||6.1|
|Max load Moduwork load volume (cu m)||5.1||5.8||6.6|
Moduwork comes as standard on all but the entry-level S 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.
There are three nominal gross vehicle weights of 2.7t, 2.9t and 3.1t, which correspond to payloads of around 1,000kg, 1,200kg, and 1,400kg respectively.
At its very best, the Expert can transport nearly 1,500kg of payload - making it the joint best medium van for payload at the time of writing (April 2019).
As for towing capacity, the unbraked rating is the usual 750kg, while for braked towing it's rated up to 2,500kg.
