February 2002 saw the launch of the second generation of the Eurovans. The floorpan, wheelbase, and suspension were not altered, but all exterior dimensions-including front and rear tracks- were increased. The increase in length of almost 30 cm greatly enhanced interior volume. The new Eurovans were afforded a much more bubbly, contemporary look, along with a modern-looking dashboard with centrally mounted gauges.
As the new Lancias didn't use Greek letters in the 2000s (until the revival of the Lancia Delta in 2008), the new minivan was called Lancia Phedra, in honor of the Greek mythological figure Phaedra. The successor is the Lancia Voyager.
The differences between the various versions were more pronounced, encompassing entire front fascias and rear sections (including head- and tail-lights), as well as different interior colour themes. The middle and third row seats now had fore/aft sliders to increase flexibility and also adjustable backs. As with the first generation, a three-seater bench seat was available in the third row, slotting in to the standard third row seat runners, with back-lowering and tilt forward arrangements to increase boot space.
The Fiat and the Lancia were slightly wider than PSA vans, and the Phedra is also longer than other Eurovans.
To highlight the launch of the V6 engine, Peugeot presented a design study called Peugeot 807 Grand Tourisme at the 2003 Geneva Motor Show. Apart from the fancier 4-passenger interior and some mechanical and visual tuning, the car was essentially a top-of-the-line 807 in a purple colour.
