Peugeot has revealed pricing for its two-variant large Boxer van for the 2020 model year.
The Boxer starts at $47,470 before on-road costs for the standard length or $48,990 for the long-wheelbase.
Both variants are powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel engine good for 120kW/310Nm, which is exclusively mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
The Boxer is claimed to consumer 6.9L/100km of diesel in either layout.
Despite only shipping with a six-speed manual, the Boxer has a camera-based auto braking feature.
Standard features across both variants includes 15-inch steel wheels, a 5.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with built-in navigation, a TFT screen nestled in the dash, LED DRLs with halogen headlights, and rear parking sensors with a reversing camera.
On the active safety front, the Boxer scores auto emergency braking (AEB) with forward collision warning (FCW), and lane departure alert (LDW). These features join the expected suite of four airbags and electronic stability controls.
The load area is measured at 11.5 square meters for the standard length or 13.3 square meters for the long wheelbase.
Although the Boxer has been around since 2014 in Europe, 2019 sees the brand's LCV range return to Australian shores.
Peugeot says the 2.0-litre turbo-diesel Boxer was subjected to “special testing”, including 1500 hours operating in temperatures ranging from -20 degress Celsius to 40 degrees Celsius, 1000 water crossings including with saline spray, 500,000 door opening tests at a range of temperatures, and a set of “thermal shocks” to the drivetrain simulating “15 years of intensive use”. Peugeot says it accrued 1.3 million real-world kilometres of testing in the lead up to the release of the Boxer.
The Boxer is covered by Peugeot’s five-year 200,000km light commercial vehicle warranty.
