Peugeot Boxer Review 2024
Peugeot Boxer At A Glance
The Boxer is powered by a range of HDi common rail diesel engines. The engines are also fitted with an electronic onboard diagnosis system to monitor exhaust emissions. The most popular engine is the 2.2-litre HDi diesel which is available in two versions with either 100PS or 120PS. There is also a 3.0-litre HDi engine.
In 2016 Peugeot downsized the range and introduced a Euro6 compliant 2.0-litre HDi, with the four-cylinder providing lower emissions and better fuel economy. Power delivery and all-round refinement was improved too, making the 2.0 HDis much better for long distance driving.
Diversity is a key appeal of the Boxer and there are also dropside and tipper conversions, as well as chassis cabs, Luton and minibus models. Peugeot's revisions to the Boxer since its introduction in 2006 have made it more and more comfortable and convenient, which is why this van remains one of the most popular choices for UK operators.
The Boxer panel van comes with two rear hinged doors equipped with four opening positions as standard. Both rear doors open to an angle of 96 degrees and a retractable link system allows this angle to be extended to 180 degrees, or optionally to 270 degrees. To ensure any load is securely and safely transported, the ribbed floor is equipped with either eight or ten load locating eyes depending on the vehicle length.
Inside of the van, black Teflon plastic lined panels are fitted to protect both the inner panels and the load. The Boxer also has fixing holes positioned above the trim panels able to accommodate a stowing rail. The load sill is particularly low which puts the Boxer among the best vans on the market in terms of loading height.

Not as prevalent as the Fiat Ducato and Citroen Relay, the Boxer has all their advantages of loadspace and payload, with the bonus of being a little bit different in the large van marketplace.
