If lengthy loading bays, low fuel costs and practical cabin features are your thing, look no further than the Peugeot Boxer, with its many guises to suit everyone from founders to fleet managers. Comfort and safety are a given with driver seat armrests, lumbar support, speed limit recognition, smart beam headlights, distance alert, lane depart warning and big storage options.
Peugeot’s Boxer Asphalt version enjoys some extra comfort and safety, making it great on longer work drives, with air con, distance alert, land departure warning, speed limit recognition, speed limiter, auto headlamp control, integrated sat-nav, rear parking sensors and armrests.
Heavy duty loads suit Peugeot’s Boxer Grip 3.5 tonne option geared towards motoring rough terrain and carrying heavy long loads. It packs a punch on grip control, hill descent assist, all-season tyres, cruise control (variable speed limiter), front/rear mud flaps, reinforced suspension, engine under protection tray and driver armrest. The Boxer Panel has highest payload and loading volume of its range at top-end (1,570kg, 15m3 load volume) and comes in 3 lengths and heights. If you need to carry cargo to work while transporting your team, try the Crew Cab with its extra row of seating for 3 (2 extra window panels) and whopping payload (1,390kg). The Boxer Window Van is for passenger-carrying conversions and is available in 2 lengths/heights and 3 wheelbases (internal load lengths 2,670-3,705mm).
Inside Peugeot’s Boxer it clearly looks good and comes with plenty of features and deceptive storage. 5-inch touchscreen, 2-phone synching, and a size restriction detector to avoid narrow roads. Wide load access (opening angles of 96-270 degrees) for easy loading, swing doors (2.03m high) and best-in-class load width between arches (1.42m). This van has super low rear load sills.
On gross value weight and volume there are 4 options (3,000-4,000kg) and on body styles there are 5 (Panel, Window, Chassis Cab, Floor Cab, Back to Backs). 4 lengths (varying payloads 8-17m3) and a load width that ranks among the best (max widths inside at 1.87m on Panels), means no shortage on choice.
Peugeot Boxers house powerful, economical diesel engines. The 2.2-litre, BlueHDi, 120bhp Euro 6.2 ranks high on economy (26.6-34.9mpg) and low on co2 emissions (154-155g/km). The engine oomph is even better on the 2.2-litre BlueHDI 140bhp for heavy loads, with low fuel cost and emissions (25.5-34.3mpg/153-186g/km co2). Both have manual 6-speeds and Stop-Start.
If you are considering an electric van, the fully automated E-Boxer can take you up to 139 miles per charge and is lovely and quiet on the road with less vibrations. Great for cities with emission restriction zones, you can access a 6-month charging subscription with BP Pulse and get remote control heating and battery charging options and enjoy 1-hour recharges to 80% power. The 2 battery ranges last up to 73/139 miles respectively (37kWh/70-kWh).
