New Peugeot Boxer
Peugeot’s latest Boxer van is the largest in the brand’s commercial vehicle range and one of the most versatile. You can choose from a variety of heights, lengths and body styles to match the van to your requirements, and look forward to years of dependable performance from this workhorse.
The French firm has put its own stamp on the commercial vehicle mould by bringing design elements from its passenger car range to the Boxer. You may recognise the rectangular front grille finished with a classy chrome frame from the likes of the 108 city car and 3008 crossover. This is joined by halogen headlamps on the front which can be adjusted from within the cabin. Both the Panel Van and Window Van shapes also feature a large sliding side door and a wide rear opening. Loading cargo is effortless, while passengers can take their seat quickly. Other variants include a tipper, drop-side and chassis cab for whatever tasks lie ahead.
The multi-purpose cabin has been designed to be comfortable and help you work when on the move. It carries three people on individual seats and offers plenty of head and legroom for occupants to stretch out into. A folding clipboard on the centre of the dash allows you to hold important documents close by, while a large open glovebox gives you quick access to other important items. There is also a second lockable glovebox for those valuables you want to keep hidden when parked. At the rear, the standard panel van will carry as much as 1,900kg in its 17,000-litre loadspace.
Engines and performance
Your engine options include a 2.2-litre HDi diesel in three states of tune or the 3.0-litre HDi with 180bhp. The 130bhp 2.2-litre unit can be selected with a start/stop system which boosts its fuel economy by shutting off the engine when the van sits idle. The same unit generates 320Nm of torque from 2,000rpm to help the van shift a full load without feeling sluggish.
Power assisted steering enhances the Boxer’s driveability no matter what you are carrying, and there are various other driver assistance technologies to improve the model’s safety.
Safety and technology
Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) is standard-fit across the range and includes traction control to help the van find grip when the road is wet or icy. ESP also prevents a dangerous skid and reverses oversteer or understeer which can cause a loss of control. Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) is a crucial addition as it manages braking pressure relative to what load is on board. Even with heavy items in the back, EBD can help the Boxer to stop quickly and safely.
The standard infotainment offering is impressive. A DAB digital radio with Bluetooth® interface and USB port are all included at no extra cost. Use them to follow traffic news, take a call hands-free and play music from an external device. The Professional trim swaps the standard system for a touchscreen display with satellite navigation and all the same features.
