The Boxer range is wide and varied, providing operators with a choice of panel van payload capacities ranging from 1,125kg up to 1,570kg. Load volumes extend from 8 cubic metres in the L1 H1 (short wheelbase, low roof) model to 17 cubic metres in the L4 H3 (extra-long wheelbase, high roof) version. Along with the panel vans, Peugeot offers the usual mix of chassis cabs, tippers, drop-side trucks and crew cabs, that can be adapted to operator needs. Depending on which model you go for, there’s a choice of S, Professional, Grip and Asphalt trim levels.
Active Safety Brake is an automatic emergency braking system which activates if an imminent collision is detected. The camera and the radar will detect stationary or moving obstacles. If the driver then fails to brake or if the braking is insufficient, the system applies the brakes on behalf of the driver. It contributes to avoiding an impact, if you are driving at less than 30 km/h, or to limiting the scale of any collision by reducing the impact speed. A side sliding load door is standard and a second sliding door on the offside is an option. At the rear, the doors open to 180 degrees as standard and the Peugeot offers 260 degrees opening rear doors on the options list. Central locking is standard, making it easier to secure the van when loading and unloading. The most recent update to the Boxer saw a 2.2 BlueHDi diesel added in 120 and 140 guises. These have 118bhp and 138bhp respectively and come with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. This boosts efficiency, as does the standard-fit stop/start system. There’s no automatic gearbox option, but the Grip model adds hill descent control, toughened suspension, under body protection and all-season tyres as standard.
All Boxers are fitted with an immobiliser as standard, while the Professional model is fitted with an alarm – as well as cruise control with a speed limiter to make it easier to avoid exceeding the legal limit. A driver’s airbag is fitted as standard with the option of passenger airbag (which can be deactivated via a key), side airbags and curtain airbags. The three-point seat belts are fitted with pre-tensioners and load limiters. The door locks can be operated independently with the key fob able to unlock only the cab doors or unlock only the load space doors or unlock all doors. Standard deadlocks also mean that even if a window is smashed the door cannot be unlocked via the interior door handle. Electronic stability control and Bluetooth hands-free telephone connection are also standard, too. But the Boxer is too old to be offered with many of the latest active safety aids that are starting to appear in the van world such as blindspot monitors and lane-keeping assistance. Autonomous emergency braking and lane departure warning have been made standard on the heaviest 4.0-tonne gross vehicle weight versions, however, and are available as options on the rest of the range.
The Boxer drives well enough with light, well-positioned controls and good visibility out of the front from one of the highest driving positions of any van currently for sale. The ride quality is passable, but the Boxer is showing its age when compared to newer rivals, with more bounce when unladen, and more body roll in corners when compared to vans such as the VW Crafter. There’s a range of height adjustment for the steering wheel and the driving position is generally good, although other rivals such as the Mercedes Sprinter and Volkswagen Crafter offer more comfortable seats.11Cab and Interior. The Boxer cab includes plenty of stowage space, including two large glove boxes, one in the centre of the dashboard and the other in the usual place on the passenger side. The dash moulding includes a number of additional storage options on top of the dashboard plus there are large door bins, storage space under the seats and a shelf above the windscreen. A dual passenger seat is standard, with a single passenger seat as a no-cost option. The dual seat includes a pull-down tabletop in the back of the middle seat for completing paperwork. All models get DAB radio with Bluetooth and USB inputs along with electric heated door mirrors and deadlocks. The Professional trim level adds cruise control, manual air conditioning and satellite navigation.
