It gets just about the same array of cosmetic revisions which start at a front with a more refined fascia carrying restyled headlights flanking a new grille featuring the Peugeot Lion in the center. The front bumper has gained some new replaceable patches which make the car look more robust while in the lower section of the bumper sit the strips of LED daytime running lights and below them the round fog lights.

The Partner Tepee has gained two fresh body paints (Artense Grey and Moka Grey) as well as optional eight-spoke 16-inch Managua alloys. On the inside there's a new Onega Grey theme and a Cadaska Roux seat trim while the higher specification Partner and Partner Outdoor can be configured with a new NeoSpa seat trim.

The 2015 Peugeot Partner facelift family can be equipped with one of the seven VTi gasoline and Blue HDi diesel engines ranging in power from 75 HP (55 kW) to 120 HP (88 kW). Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have decreased on average by 15 percent and depending on engine choice there are five- and six-speed manual gearboxes and an ETG6 transmission. The Partner Electric has a 67 HP (49 kW) electric motor and will do 105 miles (170 km) before running out of battery juice.

Other novelties include a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with support for MirrorLink, Bluetooth, USB, AUX, voice recognition and navigation. The Partner Tepee can be optionally configured with front parking sensors and there's also a reversing camera optionally available on all models except the base variant. Peugeot will continue to offer the Grip Control system that promises to grant improved traction compared to a similar two-wheel drive layout.

The 2015 Peugeot Partner facelift lineup will premiere next week at the Algiers Motor Show and should go on sale in the months to come.
