The Peugeot Boxer freezer van has a fuel-efficient engine, a large load area and volume, and emphasis on safety and durability, makes it stand out amongst the other vans in its class. It is without doubts an excellent addition for any refrigerated van businesses.
The Peugeot Boxer is fitted with 2.0-litre BlueHDi diesel engines with three outputs: 110hp, 130hp and 160hp. The van is Euro 6 compliant and the fuel economy on the engines is quite good. Consumption rates range from 44.1-47.1 miles per gallon depending on the engine, with an average CO2 emission of 158g/km. All boxer vans use a six-speed manual gearbox, with no automatic transmission option available. The engines can move the large loads the Boxer is designed to carry, and the weight of the load does not significantly affect fuel economy.
The Peugeot Boxer comes in a range of specifications, with four wheelbases and three different heights. The length of the van ranges from 4,963mm for the shortest wheel base to 6,363mm for the longest, while the height ranges from 2,254mm to 2,764mm. The interior width of the van is 2050mm across all models.
The height of the load area ranges from 1,662mm to 2,172mm, while the length ranges from 2,670mm to 4,070mm. The interior width is 1,870mm. The large dimensions of the load area ensure that you do not have to compromise on space regardless of the type of insulation used for refrigeration.
The interior load volume for the Boxer ranges from 8-17m3, with weight capacity ranging from 1,115kg to 1900kg. This places the Boxer among the top vans for load volume and capacity. It also boasts an interior height of 2,172mm for the larger model, the greatest among the vans in its class. A length of 1,422-1.870mm lies between the wheel arches. A steel bulkhead separates the cabin from the load area while the rear doors open to a standard 180°, with 260° doors as an option. The Boxer carries a gross vehicle weight of 3,000-4,005kg.
The Boxer features a cabin with two passenger seats as standard, though you have the option of a single passenger seat at no extra cost. However, the dual seat comes with a fold-down table should you feel the need to sort out some logistics for your refrigerated products in the van. The gear lever is mounted on the dashboard for extra comfort. All models are equipped with Bluetooth and USB ports, DAB radio and electric door mirrors. A redesigned adjustable steering wheel, functional touchscreen, audio system and updated controls complete the standard look. Optional are cruise control, sat-nav, and air conditioning. Storage spaces are plentiful, including two large glove compartments, large door bins, and spaces under the seats and above the windscreen. The Boxer cabin is made from durable materials and is certifiably comfortable for long and short distance deliveries.
The Peugeot Boxer comes with a number of safety and driver-assist features for a smooth and safe ride during your deliveries. Standard features include Anti-Braking System and Emergency Brake Assist, Hill Start Assist, ESP electronic stability control, and Load Adaptive control. A lane departure warning system and reversing sensors are standard on the Boxer’s larger models and optional on the smaller ones. Other optional features include a reversing camera system, satellite navigation, anti-lock brakes and passenger airbags.
The Boxer features a shock absorption design for added stability when the van is loaded. It also has a pre-set deformation zone, which absorbs impact in an accident.
Standard security features on the Boxer include an immobiliser, locking fuel cap, remote central locking and deadlocks. Alarms are optional.
The service interval for the Boxer is 30,000 miles or two years. Engines are chain-driven and do not require frequent replacements, and the tires are cost-effective and easily replaced. The Boxer has been subjected to rigorous tests in extreme conditions to ensure high quality and durability.
