REVISED PEUGEOT BOXER BREAKS COVER

Monday, 10 June 2019

  • PEUGEOT Boxer gains Euro 6.2 engine range ahead of September deadline 
  • GRIP and ASPHALT versions join Boxer in the revised range 
  • Boxer Electric introduces a zero-emission model to complete the line-up 
  • New equipment introduced to improve safety and comfort

In launching the Euro 6.2 engine range ahead of the mandatory deadline in September 2019, PEUGEOT is introducing the revised Boxer range, designed to meet the needs of all professionals. In addition to the S and PROFESSIONAL versions, the PEUGEOT Boxer now offers "ready-to-go” GRIP and ASPHALT versions, designed for specialist van operators. Revised equipment is also part of the new line-up.

The PEUGEOT Boxer engines are evolving to meet the latest Euro 6.2 standards. Power will come from the new 2.2L BlueHDi engine, which replaces the outgoing 2.0L BlueHDi unit. The 2.2L BlueHDi engine is available with three power outputs, all offering more power:

  • 2L BlueHDi 120hp (+ 10hp) with 300Nm of torque
  • 2L BlueHDi 140hp (+ 10hp) with 340Nm of torque
  • 2L BlueHDi 165hp (+ 5hp) with 370Nm of torque (+20Nm)

All engines are equipped with Stop & Start technology as standard.

These optimised engines power a revised Boxer range. Like the rest of the PEUGEOT LCV range, in addition to S and PROFESSIONAL, other versions adapted to specific van users’ needs are available:

The GRIP version is perfectly adapted to difficult terrain while carrying heavy and long loads. The standard equipment ensures the vehicle is designed to cope with such arduous environments:

  • Grip Control® with Hill Assist Descent Control and All-Season tyres
  • Front and rear mud flaps
  • Reinforced suspension
  • Under-body protection
  • Comfort Seat Pack

The Boxer GRIP is only available with the ‘435’ version.

The ASPHALT version is dedicated to professionals who spend a lot of time in their vans and who particularly want comfort and safety features. This version offers:

  • Satellite Navigation
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Speed Limit Recognition & Recommendation
  • PEUGEOT Smartbeam Assistance
  • Active Safety Brake
  • Distance Alert System
  • Visibility Pack
  • Air-conditioning
  • Smartphone and tablet holder
  • USB charge socket
  • Colour Reverse Camera & Rear Parking Sensors
  • Comfort Seat Pack
  • Full Wheel Trims
  • LED Daylight Running Lights

This Boxer ASPHALT is available with all H2 ‘335’ & ‘435’ versions.

Safety is further enhanced with the Blind Spot Monitoring System with Rear Traffic Alert, which warns of a vehicle in the vehicles’ blind spot with an illuminated LED in the left or right mirror. The Rear Traffic Alert system can detect vehicles up to a distance of 50m to the left or right when reversing. The system sounds an alarm in the cab. Finally, the system is complemented with "trailer merge assist", which provides blind spot monitoring while taking into account a trailer measuring between three and nine metres.

Fleet managers will be able to make use of the new "PEUGEOT Connect" telematics software, fitted to all new Boxers. The system will enable:

  • Fuel consumption monitoring
  • Vehicle tracking in case of theft or in a designated geographical area
  • Maintenance monitoring
  • Eco driving tips

As with the rest of the PEUGEOT LCV range, colour options include Cumulus Grey which replaces Aluminium.

The new additions to the range will be available to order in early July 2019.

Within its strategy to offer an electrified version of its entire model range, PEUGEOT will complete the new Boxer range with a 100% electric version to be launched in late 2019
