Peugeot offers the Rifter with a choice of petrol and diesel engines. The 109bhp PureTech petrol is probably best for everyday driving, but for towing, we’d plump for one of the diesels.

The BlueHDi 130 is the most powerful and best suited to hauling a caravan. That’s the model we have on test, in GT Line specification.

Practicality should be a given with a van-based MPV, but is it? And do those origins compromise the driving experience?
