Peugeot and Citroën Australia introduces ‘longer’ five-year warranty

The new period is great for Peugeot, but doesn’t quite match Citroen’s previous six-year warranty

Citroën and Peugeot passenger vehicles will now come with a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty – less than a year after the Citroën’s period was slashed from six years to three.

Peugeot and Citroën Australia (PCA) have introduced a five-year, unlimited kilometre* warranty with five-year roadside assist, which will be retrospectively applied to any 2018 model-year vehicles already sold.

The initiative partly reverses a decision by PCA’s new owners, UK-owned Inchcape, to cut the longer Citroen warranties  previously introduced by the brands’ former distributor, Malaysia-owned Sime Darby.

Introducing a five-year warranty, which comes second only to Kia’s seven years, is good news for each brand though, especially Peugeot, which always had three-year coverage. The move will provide further incentive to purchase a ‘Pug’, following Inchcape’s recent decision to roll out autonomous emergency braking as standard across the entire range for no extra cost.

Managing Director of Peugeot and Citroën Australia, Anouk Poelmann said that the new warranty gives Australian’s confidence in purchasing a Peugeot or Citroën and reinforces the commitment both PCA and Groupe PSA in France have for the Australian market.

“When Peugeot and Citroën arrived in Australia – almost 80 and 100 years ago respectively, reliability and durability was the key to the brand’s early success and today that focus has not changed.”
