The Peugeot Traveller has been officially previewed in Malaysia by distributor Nasim Sdn Bhd. Previously announced and spotted in the country, the Traveller is part of the fleet of cars Nasim and parent company Naza is providing to the Kuala Lumpur 2017 SEA Games and Para Games that will be held in August. The Traveller was present at the official car handover ceremony at Peugeot’s Glenmarie showroom today.

Nasim officials were tight lipped on the eventual specs, but the Travellers on display came with spec sheets, which matched the SEA Games liveried units. The MPV seen here is powered by a 2.0 litre turbodiesel engine with 150 hp and 370 Nm of torque from 1,750 rpm. The oil burner is paired to an Aisin-sourced EAT6 Quickshift six-speed torque converter automatic gearbox with steering paddles.

This Traveller measures 4,956 mm long with a 3,275 mm wheelbase, which means that it’s the Standard variant. Elsewhere, the MPV comes in 4,606 mm Compact and 5,309 mm Long forms. To compare, a current-generation Toyota Alphard is 41 mm shorter (4,915 mm) and has a 275 mm shorter wheelbase (3,000 mm), so you’re looking at a giant people carrier.

Like the footprint, the Traveller’s cabin comes in various configurations in Europe. The unit you see here comes with three individual sliding seats in the second and third rows, making the Peugeot an eight-seater in a 2-3-3 formation. Each of the six seats in rows two and three has its own three-point seatbelt and Isofix mount for child seats.

It’s very well-equipped. Listed equipment includes directional bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights, 17-inch “Phoenix” alloys, twin electric sliding doors, keyless entry and push start, front/rear parking sensors with 180-degree reverse camera, leather seats, dual panoramic roof, second row window blinds, plus a seven-inch touchscreen head unit with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink.

Also in are eight-way electric seats for the driver and front passenger, head-up display, and a three-zone air con with second- and third-row air diffusion (ceiling-mounted vents). Safety wise, the Peugeot Traveller comes with six airbags, ESP, hill start assist, blind spot monitoring, Driver Attention Alert and tyre pressure monitoring.

The Peugeot Traveller is expected to be launched in the third quarter, as early as July, in CKD form.
