” The new Peugeot Boxer participates in our offensive and growth in the line of products of the brand, for its level of quality, robustness and equipment, coupled with a modern and rewarding style. It is also significant in our internationalization strategy, accounting for 30% of sales outside Europe . “Xavier Peugeot, Peugeot Product Director A market of vans with varied volumes in fullrenovation”Peugeot’s long history of vans began in 1950 with the production of more than 1.8 million vans, including nearly 1 million Peugeot Boxer units over three generations since 1994, and will continue to grow in 2014 with the new Peugeot Boxer. This market segment, which represents around 500,000 vehicles per year in Europe, registered a slight boost, increasing by 0.24% between 2010 and 2013. In the same period, the 3rd generation Peugeot Boxer marketed since 2006 gained 0.5% of market share in Europe – a 1.3% increase since its launch – and grows 35% in sales volumes in markets outside Europe. The new Peugeot Boxer, which will be marketed from the second quarter of 2014, will allow this dynamic to be expanded. The new Peugeot Boxer preserves what has made the current generation a success and brings new and strong responses to customers’ expectations in terms of quality, safety, functionality and cost control. With these key advantages, it fits perfectly into the brand’s complete and modern line of commercial vehicles, side by side with the Bipper, Partner and Expert models”Richard Meyer, Responsible for the Range of Commercial Vehicles  Keeping its predecessor’s name, the new Peugeot Boxer is designed to enter a new era and respond to the multiple uses of professional customers, with high requirements in terms of quality, use and efficiency in everyday life.An approved design quality. Proven robustness and durability

“Reliability and durability are two important factors in buying a commercial vehicle as they condition your resale value. We are committed to a deep approach in quality of use and durability to be at the best level of competition. These are the essential levers for increasing the line of the brand, and the new Peugeot Boxer demonstrates this fact . “Philippe Pelletier, Director of Quality  The specifications of the new Peugeot Boxer incorporates an imperative of quality expressed at all levels: design, assemblies, reliability, acoustic treatment and durability. Design quality, like that of the brand’s passenger cars, is based on two main axes: reinforcement of production rules based on feedback from past project experience, competition analysis and 7-year customer reviews of use; a set of complementary and specific validations, besides the tests usually carried out, to evaluate the resistance to aging. The fruits of these works are measured through dynamic tests called “quality of use”, simulating the aging resulting from the customer’s use.During the development phase of the new Peugeot Boxer, enhancement of durability and improved acoustic comfort resulted mainly from a reinforced base structure for increased stiffness; a redesigned lower protection; new sliding side door mechanisms and reinforced rear doors; a resized braking; new design of shock absorber supports; a line of 2.2 HDi engines that benefits from a redesigned injection system. To ensure a high level of reliability and durability compatible with the intensive use of the Peugeot Boxer by customers, more than four million kilometers were driven, under the most extreme conditions under full load, half-load or unladen and in several types of routes, including degraded and mountain roads.

Reliability and durability have also been the subject of specific tests, including: 1,500 hours in temperatures from -20 ° to + 40 ° C to ensure the aging resistance of components and materials of mechanical, plastic and electronic parts; 1,000 passes in rivers and beaches with 10 cm of water or in 2 to 3 cm with projection of salt water, without cleaning the vehicle for the next 1,000 km, to validate the watertightness and resistance to corrosion; 500,000 test cycles of door locking systems from -30 ° C to + 80 ° C, representing a rigorous use by customers over 10 years.The quality of construction of the new Peugeot Boxer was also the object of attention. In addition to the quality checks performed at the factory throughout all production phases, more than 1,800 visual and functional features were tested on each vehicle at the factory.A quality with a new, modern and robust design “We want the new Peugeot Boxer to have a modern, durable design that integrates the elegance of Peugeot design. It should be recognized 500 meters away! ”  ThierryDevoitin and Laurent Rossi, respectively Responsible for Industrial Style and Design VCLPutting the new Peugeot Boxer in its day considering a strong and modern identity, integrating the brand style codes adapted to the world of the commercial vehicle. This is the challenge faced by the Peugeot style team.A commercial vehicle should be practical and solid, but it should also be rewarding for professionals as it is part of the image of your company and your profession. The new front looks modern, evoking power and sturdiness. The flared hood is underlined by the brand block. The wide grille – inspired by the new Peugeot 308 – has a gray metal frame that looks like it is cut into the bodywork. The new Peugeot Boxer adopts an expressive, feline and technological look, highlighting its continuity for the front headlights, now integrating daytime running lights as standard, or LED as an option.

Its new, state-of-the-art bumper guarantees maximum protection by incorporating two circular spaces in the lower part to receive, as an option or as standard, polycarbonate fog lights with greater robustness. Right above, two rectangular spaces that serve as a step to facilitate the cleaning of the windshield.The rear is enriched by the brand’s emblem and a new signature light that underscores the modernity of the new Peugeot Boxer and ensures better lateral visibility due to the rear illumination. Inside, functional and comfortable, the new Peugeot Boxer also gains in elegance and quality. The steering wheel adopts a more modern design and gives a feeling of robustness at the first contact. To enhance comfort and contact, leather is available as an option, also included in the Comfort Pack.The dashboard receives new technical content with a new line of radios, while the new black ‘Darko’ standard with red and gray details or the new ‘Achille’ cream seat are optional. All this contributes to a modern anqualitinterioappearance.Efficiency in everyday lif” Commercial vehicle customers are looking for a vehicle with the same level of finish as a passenger car that guarantees them good working conditions. His needs are rational and oriented around comfort, ease of driving, safety, but also in the efficiency of his professional activity, and the new Peugeot Boxer responds to all these expectations . “Vincent Portia, Product Manager – New Peugeot BoxerIn order to ensure safety and ease of driving, the new Peugeot Boxer offers a wide range of driving and safety equipment, modern and technological equipment.ABS, ESP, AFU (Emergency Brake Assist), driver airbag and power windows are part of the standard equipment as well as the sheet metal cargo compartment, contributing to acoustic comfort.In theft protection, it is equipped with: central door lock; closing and opening of the cargo space, independent of the passenger compartment; double door locking; automatic rear view of the vehicle on the Touch Screen, without the need to open the rear doors, thanks to the rear view camera.For the protection of the occupants and to respond to the different uses of customers, the new Peugeot Boxer integrates numerous active and passive safety systems:

 The LAC (Load Adaptive Control) function that adapts the ESP intervention according to the load of the vehicle and its distribution. It allows the vehicle to remain safer in its trajectory in critical situations;- The ASR (anti-skid) system, also integrated in the ESP, detects if one or more wheels lose adhesion, acting on the braking speed and the engine speed to regain lost grip. At low speed, ASR makes it easy to start, especially on slippery terrain. Allows for smooth starting while preserving the clutch in terms of strength. At higher speeds, it prevents the wheels from skidding, especially in the case of strong accelerations on slippery floors The AFIL (Track Involuntary Transpose Alert) system reads the road permanently through the camera placed above the inside rearview mirror. If the driver crosses a continuous or discontinuous line without activating the direction indicator, a light appears on the control panel, sounding an audible alarm on the side where the line has been transposed. This new standard equipment in four-tonne vans is available as an option in the other versions and is included in the Safety Pack;- With the DSG (Tire Pressure Sensor or Hole), standard on the VP versions and optional on the other versions, each wheel is equipped with a pressure sensor, informing the driver in case of loss of pressure or a hole in the wheel, through a message on the display or the central display;

– One airbag for the passenger, two side airbags and two curtain airbags are available as options.The new Peugeot Boxer also has safety systems and driving aids such as: – The Hill Assist system, also integrated in the ESP, is activated when the vehicle is stationary, with the engine running and the foot on the brake at a slope greater than 5% facing up or in reverse to lower it. Under these conditions, the braking pressure is maintained for about 2 seconds after the driver releases the brake pedal, offering comfort and ease of starting on a slope without the vehicle backing, regardless of the load carried by the vehicle;- The Grip Control, available as an option, is a motor support system for low-grip soils (mud, snow or ice). When the function is activated by pressing the button located on the dashboard, and if a low grip situation is detected, the Grip Control overlaps the ASR, transferring the driving force to the wheel with greater contact with the ground to optimize the motor and the trajectory. The system shuts off automatically when the speed exceeds 30 km / h; The Grip Control also integrates a new function, the HDC (Hill Descent Control), activated through a button located on the edge panel. It allows the driver to maintain a constant speed below 30 km / h and control the vehicle on a particularly muddy or gravelly descent of at least 8% without any intervention on the accelerator or brake. The function is automatically deactivated when the driver accelerates beyond 30 km / h;
