Choose Panel-Sided or Window Version, Then Add Options Once you’ve selected either the panel-sided or window version, you can choose the level of vehicle that you want. The panel van comes in Standard and Professional versions - it can be slightly difficult to tell what kind of customer Peugeot has in mind for each, so the best thing is to take a look and see which one best fits your business. The Standard undoubtedly has the higher spec overall in terms of load-carrying. Where the Standard has a payload of 1115kg-1900 kg, the Professional has a slightly lower limit of 1115kg-1575 kg. Load space on the Standard is therefore higher, at 8-17 cubic metres, whereas on the professional it’s 8-15. There are up to ten load tie-down hooks in the load area and a load light.
The Professional comes with an alarm, cruise control and rear parking aid, as well as manual air conditioning for the cab. The Standard has Electronic Stability Program (ESP), deadlocks and a full steel bulkhead for protection
However, when it comes to infotainment, the Professional has the edge, with touch-screen navigation and a CD player. Both versions have DAB digital radio, but the Standard also has FM. Both have Bluetooth with USB input.
Window Version of the Boxer
The window version of the Boxer has the same maximum payload as the Standard panel van (1900kg) but the same load space as the Professional panel van (8-15 cubic metres). It has FM, DAB digital radio and Bluetooth with USB socket. It has ESP and deadlocks but also driver ladder frame protection.
Features on All Models
There are multiple sliding door/glazed panel options on all versions, and the rear van doors have 180-degree opening.
The engines range from a 2.2 litre 110 horsepower to a 3 litre with 180 hp. Mpg varies hugely according to whether the Boxer is being used for urban deliveries or out-of-town runs and is of course further influenced by engine size and payload. Peugeot estimates 29.7 for urban driving in the L2 and L3, up to 48.7 on the L1 out of town.
Safety is good, with ABS, ESP including traction control and EBFD (Electronic Brake Force Distribution). In line with EU legislation, vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of over 3500kg include a tachograph and speed limiter which keeps the vehicle’s speed limited to 62mph (can be lower than this depending on the weight).
As for security, the vehicle identification number is etched on to the glass, the doors have deadlocks and there’s an immobiliser.
Storage is great - two glove boxes, one of which is lockable, large side pockets, open storage on the passenger side and an overhead storage box.
All models have an adjustable steering column and electric heated door mirrors. There’s also a handy folding clipboard on the central dashboard, although this isn’t available if you opt for the passenger seat airbag.
Expect to see thousands of these vans on our roads. They are real workhorses, and Peugeot has given business owners a lot of choice in how they configure them.
