New Peugeot Boxer ‘packs a bigger punch’

Peugeot has introduced a number of new variants to its Boxer range of vans, claiming that the models will add a heavier punch to the current offering.

A "heavy duty" range of three panel vans is the main introduction. This line, called the 4 Series, will provide weights of 2,100kg for the front axle and 2,400kg for the rear axle.

Two diesel engine units will be available with these vans – a 2.2-litre 120bhp variant and a three-litre 157bhp engine, both with a six-speed manual gearbox. Interior loadspace has also been increased to a maximum of 15 cubic metres.

Another new addition to the Boxer range is an optional pneumatic rear suspension pack, providing a constant ride height irrespective of the load weight.

Boxer vans can also have their rear lowered with the new suspension to assist loading, while passenger comfort will also be improved.

The range was launched in October 2006 and has been "well accepted", according to Peugeot, with over 1,200 vehicles sold.

Panel van prices in the Boxer range start from £21,250 excluding VAT, while chassis cab versions start at £18,800.
