Peugeot unveils the new Boxer
Built in partnership with Fiat, the Boxer introduced a broader and more varied range than before, combined with an increase in load capacity, both in terms of total weight and volume.
Road holding, safety, comfort and interior design were all improved over the previous Boxer, and standard equipment levels include a driver’s airbag, four wheel disc brakes, ABS, EBFD, EBA and ESP depending on the model. New technology includes pneumatic rear suspension which can be lowered to facilitate loading large and heavy items.
The New Boxer range is powered by common rail, direct injection HDi diesel engines with a capacity of either 2.2-litres or 3.0-litres. These engines provide torque figures of between 250Nm and 400Nm and are combined with either a five or six-speed gearbox. The payload has been increased compared to the previous Boxer range, with the introduction of a new range of vehicles with a GVW from 3.5 to 4 tonnes, allowing a payload of up to 2.0 tonnes.

The range starts at £15,150 (ex VAT) for the 330 L1 H1 Panel van. The Boxer range consists of four body versions, Panel van, Window Van, Chassis Cab and Crew Cab, powered by three engine options and for the van range a payload from 1100 kg to 1575 kg.
A wider range of load volumes are available ranging from 8m3 to 13m3 compared to the out going models’ 9m3 to 12m3, providing an easy step up from the Peugeot Expert range. This increase in load volume, however, does not incur higher operating costs as the new Boxer is 10% more fuel efficient and maintenance intervals have been increased from 20,000 miles or 2 years to 24,000 miles or 2 years, reducing vehicle down time.
Warranty extended to 100,000 miles. Three year warranty extended from the previous 60,000 mile limit.
Peugeot launches Boxer conversion programme. Tipper and Dropside conversions now available as part of Peugeot’s 'one-stop-shop' conversion programme. Four models were available at launch, two Single Cabs and two Crew Cabs in the following versions: 335 L2 120 Tipper, 335 L3 120 Dropside and 335 Crew Cab L3 Tipper or Dropside. The Dropside range starts from £21,380 exc VAT and the Tipper range starts from £21,995 exc VAT.
Facelifted Boxer revealed
It retains the dimensions and engines, but with improved refinement, better equipment levels, a revised cabin and new exterior styling.The most obvious changes are in the styling – the front of the Boxer has a new look designed to reflect Peugeot's range of passenger cars. Changes include new headlights and a new grille design. The interior has been redesigned, with a more car-like layout. Standard equipment includes DAB radio, Bluetooth and a touchscreen on the upper trim level.
The engine range is as before, with 2.2-litre diesel engines offering between 110PS and 150PS, plus a 180PS 3.0-litre diesel. The 130PS version of the 2.2-litre engine is now available with a stop start system which reduces emissions by an average of 5g/km.
Under the skin Peugeot has tweaked the door mechanisms to make them more durable, plus it has revised braking and suspension to give better refinement and better braking performance. Furthermore the service interval has been increased to 30,000 miles or every two years.
Peugeot introduces BlueHDi 2.0-litre engine range
The new version of the 2.0-litre engine provides increases of power and torque over previous unit. It is also more economical with lower CO2 output and meets the more stringent Euro6 regulations
The BlueHDi technology incorporates SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) upstream of the additivate cleansing DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter). The engine options therefore meet the Euro6 standard with what is considered the most effective pollution control technology on the market.
The 15-litre AdBlue tank provides a range of approximately 6200 miles. It’s easy to fill up with AdBlue, due to the external filler flap which is located above the fuel filler and is also compatible with existing heavy goods vehicle AdBlue pumps at service stations.
The new range of PEUGEOT Boxer 2.0-litre BlueHDi engines offers three power levels:
- 110hp and 300Nm, an increase of 50Nm compared to the previous engine
- 130hp and 340Nm, an increase of 20Nm compared to the previous engine
- 160hp and 350Nm, an increase of 10hp compared to the previous engine
The engines are paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox and Stop & Start technology is available across all of the versions.
The BlueHDi engines fitted to the latest PEUGEOT Boxer means it now has:
- improved consumption levels, with a claimed 47.0mpg, with 154g/km of CO 2 , a reduction of 30g/km CO 2 for the 130hp mid-range version
- The same payload and maximum speed as previous Euro5 versions
- Acceleration and in-gear acceleration improved by up to 4.0 seconds for 0-62 mph and 8.0 seconds for 50 to 80mph for the 110hp version, respectively.
Peugeot launches Built for Business conversion range for Boxer
The range of chassis cab conversions are ordered direct from Peugeot’s dealer network and carry a full three year/100,000 mile warranty.
The Built for Business range includes tipper, dropside, Luton, low-floor Luton, box body and curtainside conversions. All are based on the Peugeot Boxer 335: powered by the 2.0 BlueHDi 160 S&S diesel engine with a six-speed manual gearbox. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, an uprated battery and revised dual-leaf rear suspension with anti-roll bar.
Tipper models are available on the L2 single cab or L3 crew cab platforms, with payloads peaking at 1.2 tonnes for L2s. The compact scissor-type underfloor tipping gear includes overload and hose burst protection, a mechanism Peugeot claims will make the conversion maintenance free throughout the life of the vehicle.
Dropsides can be specified in L2 or L3 single cab configurations, along with L3 crew cab. The largest versions will carry payloads weighing up to 1.4 tonnes and aluminium corner posts can be removed by hand to easily convert the vehicle into a flatbed.
Luton vans are limited to single cab only, in L3 or L4 load lengths. Volumes for the loadspace span 16 – 20 cubic meters and payloads vary from 979kg – 1147kg. Box vans get the option of a lightweight aluminium frame to increase maximum payloads to 1051kg for vans in L3 spec.
The Curtainside body is available with either L3 or L4 single cab and provides a maximum payload of up to 965kgs (with a 17 cubic metre volume) or a maximum volume of 20m cubic metres with a 879kg payload. This enables up to six Euro pallets to be carried.
