Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The looks and interior might have largely stayed the same for the Peugeot Boxer, but the safety systems have not. Over the years Peugeot has added a number of important new features to the van to keep it relevant in a sector where massive developments in safety have been a regular occurrence.

While the Volkswagen Crafter arguably leads the way, closely followed by the perpetually impressive Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Peugeot and Citroen have slowly added important features to their models including Roll-over Mitigation and Hill Descent Control. Options including traffic sign recognition have been added and there’s also a lane departure warning system. Other vans have more, but the Boxer’s kit list is highly credible.

Overview

Like the Rocky film franchise, the Peugeot Boxer continues to soldier on despite its age. There are better equipped, bigger or nicer vans to drive, but the Boxer offers value and functionality. If you need heavy loads, decent volumes and a functional no frills workplace the Boxer is the one for you. It’s no prize fighter, but this journeyman is never one to be overlooked.

  • Big payload capacities
  • Range of body options
  • Smoother, more refined engines
  • Showing its age
