If you're planning on heading off-road, a little MPV probably isn't the most obvious choice. But it has been done before (remember the Volkswagen Syncro Bus and the Mitsubishi Delica?). Now Peugeot apparently wants a slice of this admittedly modest pie, revealing its new Rifter 4x4 Concept.
Based on the recently unveiled Rifter, this concept gains a higher ride height, model-specific BF Goodrich off-road tyres and a Dangel-sourced four-wheel-drive system, complete with three modes. The Peugeot Rifter 4x4 Concept draws its urge (with peak torque of 300 N.m) from a 1,5-litre BlueHDi 130 engine, mated with a six-speed manual gearbox.
In addition to this, the off-roader has been kitted out with a portable Overland tent and a 1,35-metre strip of LEDs, with a total output of 300W.
Although it's billed as a rugged off-roader, the Rifter 4x4 Concept sports a fairly plush interior, complete with black fabric upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. What it does appear to be missing, however, is a set of A-pillar-mounted grab handles for when the going gets, err, rocky.
And the two-wheeler on the back? Well, that's a new electric mountain bike Peugeot calls the eM02 FS Powertube...
