Peugeot is adding new equipment and “ready-to-go” Grip and Asphalt versions, in addition to the usual Pro and Premium finish levels, for its popular Boxer range. In addition, to meet the latest Euro 6 emissions standards, the Boxer’s engine range now uses the new BlueHDi block with a 2.2L engine (instead of 2.0L) with extra power.
There are three versions of the new 2.2 BlueHDi available, all with Stop & Start as standard:
- 2.2 BlueHDi 120hp (+ 10hp) with 300Nm of torque
- 2.2 BlueHDi 140hp (+ 10hp) with 340Nm of torque
- 2.2 BlueHDi 165hp (+ 5hp) with 370Nm of torque (+20Nm)
A 100 percent electric version will complete the range and be offered with two levels of autonomy depending on the version: 225 km (NEDC) for lengths L1 and L2, and 270 km (NEDC) for lengths L3 and L4. After their production on the Sevel site in Val di Sangro (Atessa, Italy), these vehicles will be electrified and approved by the BD OTO partner.
The new Grip version is available with “Heavy 435” payloads only, and is adapted for hard-to-reach terrain with heavy and long load requirements. Its standard equipment gives it more robustness with Grip Control and Hill Assist with All-Seasons tyres, wheel arch protectors, front and rear mud flaps, reinforced suspension, under-engine protection plate, pedestrian buzzer, and Comfort seat pack.
The new Asphalt version is available with all lengths and payloads, and is dedicated to those who spend a lot of time in their vehicle and want more comfort and safety. This version includes: GPS, Lane Departure Warning, recognition of speed and prohibitive signs, automatic switching of lights, Active Safety Brake, Distance Alert, Visibility pack, Automatic air conditioning, Smartphone and tablet holder, USB charge socket, Parking aid, and Comfort seat pack.
New technology options available, include a new 9-inch, touch-sensitive GPS, allowing vehicle dimensions to be re-entered to avoid potential size-restricted roads. This GPS is also compatible with the WAZE real-time traffic application and allows two phones to be connected simultaneously. Perfectly suited to large vans or motorhomes.
Safety is enhanced with the Blind Spot Monitoring System which outputs information via an LED in the left or right mirror. This equipment also has a “rear traffic alert” which can detect vehicles in a distance of 50m to the left or right when the reverse gear is engaged. The information is audible in the passenger compartment. Finally, the system is complemented by the “trailer merge assist”, which provides blind spot monitoring taking into account the size of a trailer (between 3 and 9 meters). The information is rendered in the receiver.
Fleet managers will be able to rely on the new “Peugeot Connect” telematics case, which allows them to:
- monitor fuel consumption
- track vehicles in case of theft or designated geographical area
- monitor maintenance
- get tips on eco driving
