PEUGEOT 807/CITROËN C8/FIAT ULYSSE (SECOND GENERATION)

by

Fiat-Ulysse-2The practical French and Italian second generation Eurovan is next up on our ramp for further investigation.

The Peugeot 807, Citroën C8 and Fiat Ulysse was the replacement for the first generation Ulysse, the 806 and Citroën Synergie.

These vans entered the market in 2003 in an attempt to grab some of the people carrier market from the likes of Ford, Chrysler, Volkswagen and Vauxhall, and even though the Fiat had some small tweaks made compared to their PSA counterparts, the Peugeot and Citroën were fitted with a two petrol engines including a 2.0-, and 2.2-litre, and 2.0- and 2.2-litre diesels, while the Fiat came with a 2.0-litre petrol and the 2.0- and 2.2-litre diesel engines.

The Eurovans came equipped with a host of technology and safety features, and are known to have some electrical gremlins, so this will provide some extra challenges.

Next month we’ll be looking at the fourth gen Ford Transit, so wherever you work in the aftermarket if you have insight to share, we would be delighted to hear from you. To get your advice included contact hemal.mistry@haymarket.com.
