Ten Second Review
Peugeot's Boxer looks better, is built stronger, carries more and does so while consuming less fuel than its predecessor. In a cut-throat market, Peugeot has forensically focused on the things that make a real difference to fleet operators in order to give its heavyweight the best chance of a unanimous decision.
When choosing a van that can punch above its weight, Peugeot might not be the first name that springs to mind. In fact, you might well associate the brand with smaller commercials like the Partner and Expert. If you need something big and tough, chances are that you might have looked at the Ford Transit, the Vauxhall Movano or maybe the Volkswagen Transporter. Overlooking Peugeot's Boxer is easy to do but could well bring on an acute case of buyer's remorse.
The Boxer has quietly edged itself into position to challenge the very best in this market and the latest model, a beneficiary of more than two million miles of testing in extreme conditions, brings the sort of quality, robustness and durability that commercial operators demand. Couple that with what's promised to be the best fuel economy in the market and a wide range of bodies and load capacities and you have a vehicle that's capable of doing the business.
Peugeot offers a strong line up of five diesel engines, all fitted with diesel particulate filters. The four-cylinder 2.2-litre HDi 110 develops 110PS, as its badge suggests, and 250Nm at 1,750rpm. Step up to the 130PS and 150PS versions of this engine and you get 320 and 350Nm respectively coupled with a specific piston cooling system and engine mapping. The 130PS engine can also be specified with a fuel-saving Stop & Start system. At the top of the range is the beefy 3.0-litre HDi 180 motor, which is good for 400Nm at 1,400rpm, an exceptional torque figure for the category. Bigger brakes, stronger suspension mountings and a more rigid body all improve the driving characteristics.
The ESP stability control system is particularly refined on this van, with a Load Adaptive Control function which adapts the point at which the ESP intervenes, according to the load in the vehicle and its distribution. There's also Hill Start Assist, built into the ESP software. This system is activated when the vehicle is stationary, engine running, foot on the brake pedal, on a slope steeper than 5 per cent, in forward gear going up or reverse gear going down. Under these conditions, braking pressure is maintained for around two seconds after the driver releases the brake pedal, offering assurance and ease in moving off without the vehicle dropping back, whatever the load in the vehicle.
Design and Build
Normally when manufacturers try to translate exterior design cues from cars onto vans, the how approach fails and comes across as a bit desperate, but the latest Peugeot Boxer actually looks pretty slick with a big chromed grille. The headlights are interesting too, looking like rather feline eyes, garnished with a daytime running light strip. The front moulding that wraps beneath the grille and lights is a complex shape and the rake of the windscreen is a bit more laid back than in many panel vans. It's not just aesthetics though. Just above the front foglights, two rectangular recesses serve as steps to facilitate cleaning the windscreen. Clever.
The interior is nicely executed with far better materials quality than the outgoing van. The steering wheel looks more car-like and can be trimmed in perforated leather as an option. The dashboard gets a revised control panel with a better range of audio systems, while black 'Darko' cloth punctuated with red and grey is adopted for the seats, with brown Achille trim as an option. The whole effect contributes towards the perception of improved quality and modern appearance of the cabin. It's no mere perception that this van feels tough. This Boxer has benefited from testing such as 1,500 hours at temperatures from -20 degreesC to +40 degreesC to ensure resistance to ageing by the components and materials used in mechanical, plastic and electronic parts. It's been subjected to 1,000 dunkings in 10cm of water or 3cm with saline spray, with no washing of the vehicle during the following 1,000 km, to validate the sealing and resistance to corrosion. Half a million door opening test cycles were carried out at temperatures of -30 degreesC to +80 degreesC, to simulate ten years of hard use.
Market and Model
Peugeot's fighting for a share of a revitalised post-recession large van market, which now represents around 500,000 vehicles a year in Europe. The sector grew by around 0.25 per cent between 2009 and 2013 and Boxer sales doubled that rate of growth, sales rising by 0.5 per cent. The latest version should do even better.
It's certainly well equipped, even at the entry-level point. Safe too, with anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control and emergency braking assistance, a driver's airbag and electric windows all part of the standard equipment, together with a steel bulkhead between the cabin and the loading area, contributing towards better noise suppression. There's Bluetooth and a USB port, plus various storage areas, as well as a document holder and writing table built into the folding backrest of the centre seat. Step up to the Professional model and there's cruise control with a speed limiter function, rear parking sensors and a 5'' colour touch screen. This allows the operation of all functions, such as audio streaming, reading SMS text messages and an integrated satellite navigation system, as well as the display of the image from the reversing camera.
Practicalities & Costs
The entry-level Boxer is an L1H1 (short wheelbase, low roof) panel van which can be specified in 3.0 and 3.3 tonne gross weights and has a load space volume of 8.0 cubic metres. Despite this being the smallest van in the range, it still has a load length of 2670mm, an internal load compartment height of 1662mm, a maximum load width of 1870mm and a between-the-wheel arches dimension of 1420mm - wide enough for an 8ft x 4ft sheet to be loaded flat on the floor.
Graduate to the medium wheelbase L2 model and you can get both standard and high roof formats, giving respective load volumes of 10 cubic metres and 11.5 cubic metres. The Boxer L2 panel van has a load deck length of 3120mm and either an interior load height of 1662mm (H1) or 1932mm (H2). It can also be specified in 3.3, 3.5 and 4.005 tonne gross weight versions. Should you really need some capacity, the long wheelbase L3 format will be the ticket. In this configuration, the New Relay van has a load deck length of 3705mm and an internal load height of 1932mm, which gives a 13 cubic metre capacity. The Boxer also offers a record load width of 1.87m and 1.42m between wheel arches, a low load sill, between 493 and 602mm, one o two sliding doors and rear doors that open to 96 degrees and extended to 180 degrees due to a folding check strap and to 270 degrees as an optional feature.
The 2.2 litre turbo-charged diesel engines offer better fuel economy than before, with the 110PS engine returning a creditable 41.5mpg. This rises to around 43mpg for the same van with the Stop & Start-equipped HDi 130 engine.
The Boxer is faced with some really strong rivals but rather than shy away from the challenge, Peugeot has come out swinging. It's hard to argue with a van that offers this sort of refinement inside while also being able to claim such excellent economy figures and backing it up with a large and practical load bay which boasts the broadest load width in the sector. Perhaps the most interesting challenge to the Boxer will be the internecine challenge from its sister vehicles, the Citroen Relay and the Fiat Ducato. Much will come down to the individual deals you can gouge from your dealer there, but the Peugeot might just win out, in this country at least.
A lot of thought has gone into making the Boxer work for its operators. The service intervals have gone out to two years or 30,000 miles. It runs on 15-inch tyres, which are the cheapest and easiest to get hold of for van fleets. The engines are chain rather than belt driven so don't require replacement every 60,000 miles. Small things like this make a difference. Peugeot hopes so in any case.

Overall and a nice van and lot cheaper.
Robert Walker said on September 28 2016
Michael David Heasman said on August 23 2016
Excellent van, so much more space.
Gerry Devine said on August 16 2016
I really rate the van, although I've only been driving it for only a couple of weeks. Any problems raised in other reviews (too few cup holders, handbrake in way, visibility of speedometer, etc) I disagree with.
George Petrie said on July 18 2016
Very nice, satisfied with the vehicle.
James Wilkie said on June 29 2016
Very pleased with the van and a lot bigger than I expected it to be.
Emilia Koziol said on June 22 2016
A great van, except for the fact that the handbrake is on the right hand side.
Gabriel Nagy said on June 13 2016
Exactly what I needed. Fits my demands.
Barry Trainor said on June 13 2016
Only had it for a week but so far a really great van for the money and well equipped.
Graham Hughes said on June 07 2016
I haven't done many miles yet but I'm very impressed with the Boxer so far, very easy to drive, comfortable, great spec with air-con, cruise control etc. Looks like it will be an economical van to run and looks smart. Very pleased so far.
Steve Willcox said on June 06 2016
Excellent van and ideal for my purpose.
Scott Parsons said on June 06 2016
Really nice van to drive and so practical for my job.
Karl Williams said on May 24 2016
Great van at a great price.
Peter Kwapisz said on May 19 2016
Beautiful van, just what I wanted.
George Mulloy said on May 17 2016
I've only had the vehicle for just over one week and used it infrequently due to circumstances, but initial thoughts are impressive with the only down side at present being the location of the hand break (at the right) which I'm sure I will get used to. Overall it appears good value for money and a big increase in size compared to similar prices for a Vauxhall Vivaro.
Alan Brooks said on May 17 2016
I used to have Renault Master and decided on this van because it had more comprehensive specs in the cab for a cheaper price. So far all seems good and I have to say that I'm happy with everything so far.
Steven Woods said on May 10 2016
I've been running it 4 weeks, it seems noisy on start up but after a minute or so it's ok. Initially I found the viewing of the speedometer impossible, you have to lean slightly to the right to see it so this has now become my driving position. The plastic flap under the steering column can sometimes be caught by your feet when operating the pedals and I feel like I'm missing something with only 1 drinks holder. Overall even with these findings I would order the van again, the space in the back is awesome, I really do like it.
Heather Rawling said on May 03 2016
I've only done 800 miles but its proving very good so far.
Darren Stanley said on April 28 2016
The van is good.
Richard Wakefield said on April 26 2016
Excellent equipment levels, lacks nothing. I won't suffer a hot van again! Low, flat floor with no intrusive side step. A big square box, not compromised by aerodynamics. Lots of tie hooks. And, Mercedes please note, enough lights to see what you are doing. Another good feature is the ability to open the back while leaving the cab locked and alarmed. Surprising Auto Express, when searching for faults (notchy gears? Poor cup holder?) didn't notice the main design fault with the van, every driver will notice the side window shape gives poor visibility at junctions, just like the old model Boxer. The side windows also have aircraft porthole-like trim round them, which obscures the blind spot mirrors! The well protected mirror surround (ie it protects the indicator repeater, Mercedes please note) unfortunately spoils the effectiveness of the blind spot mirrors. Compared to a Merc it is better equipped and a bit more modern. Also compared to a Sprinter, at last we have a 6th gear worthy of the name, cutting your motorway cruising revs down to 2500, instead of 3500 . This is saving me a third of my fuel costs. I'm averaging 33.6 MPG, hoping for a little more when it is run -in. Air-con, heavy loads, windows open, doesn't make a difference. I ordered my van with a paint finish on it, instead of the chalky white primer that offers little protection- however, even white Boxers don't seem to go rusty, back to '07. I really enjoy the van, the satisfying load space, all the toys to entertain on a long journey, built-in sat nav is Tom-Tom, so user-friendly. Good sound system with hilarious voice-command tuning option. The new van is certainly an impressive boost to my business image, it isn't white, so doesn't look like a rental. With the tax and VAT benefits it wasn't sensible to buy used.
Gary Chalmers said on April 26 2016
My new van has given me the extra room I so badly needed. Having a built-in SatNav as well as Bluetooth has been very handy as my phone rings non-stop. I also had the pleasure of dealing with John Molloy, who organised the process of getting my new van.
Ian walker said on April 15 2016
We are using the van to move furniture, house clearances, car boots etc. and it is ideal for these jobs. Thank you for giving us a great deal.
Phillip Ronald jones said on April 15 2016
It's very practical and a joy to drive. The power steering makes it so easy to manoeuvre it's almost like driving a cloud, also the parking sensors are an added bonus in a van as you know how close you are to an obstacle behind. The space in the back is brilliant, as a plumber it's handy for me as I can fit full length pipes in the back. I've also been able to fit 4.4 meter lengths of wood in as it's got an over head bulk. All in all I think it's a great van.
Darren Stanley said on April 15 2016
I'm a plasterer so the van is ideal for 8x4 plaster boards plus it has loads of room for all the other kit and material we carry. Good bulk head for power tools and screws etc. You won't win a races with it, It's steady to drive. A great tool. Loads of cab bits I didn't expect too including a USB port, hands free, Sat-Nav, aircon, speed camera aware and rear parking sensors. The seats are comfy too. Overall a really good price for a really good van.
Alan Brooks said on April 15 2016
So far it seems all good, it has all the gadgets and extra's in the cab. It seems to have enough power even with a bit of weight in it.
Emma Petter said on March 08 2016
It seems good so far.
Wayne Hopkins said on January 05 2016
Used the van for two weeks and very good so far.
Lee Prothero said on November 19 2015
For a professional model I would expect more, fog lights, heated seats etc.
Phillip Michael Lacey said on March 27 2015
Great van, very well specified.
Ben Hedison said on February 09 2015
The van is a good size. Takes an 8x4 comfortably, and anything 3.6m long. It drives superb, Well balanced, all mod cons with blue tooth, sat nav, cruise control etc.
Richard Coxshall said on December 08 2014
Only received today but so far no problems, fit for our purpose.
James Holden said on November 04 2014
So far so good. It's nice to drive and loading space is better than our transits.
Stuart Hunt said on July 25 2014
Haven't driven it yet

If I was to lease a van from you, would I be able to have it sign written?
Hi, thanks for your question. Yes you can sign write the van. We recommend using the vinyl type as it is easier to remove. If the vehicle is on a contract hire agreement this should be removed before returning the van to avoid being charged.
Do any of your vans come with insurance or do I have to get insurance for it?
Hi Mustafa, thank you for getting in touch. Insurance is not included in the lease cost itself, however we are able to offer our own insurance. We can run this alongside your lease which will save you searching the internet. Everything is done in house and kept as simple as possible. Kind regards, Richard Wells
