The big technological leap in Peugeot Boxer II

Peugeot Boxer II was presented for the first time in 2006. In the same year, mass production started in Italy and Mexico. The new Peugeot van has gained an even more streamlined shape, thanks to which it was possible to reduce the air drag coefficient by a few more percent (Cx = 0.31). Peugeot Boxer II was supposed to combine the payload and versatility of the van with the comfort of a passenger car. Thus, the range of available body versions was expanded and some amenities were introduced in the driver's cabin.

The second generation of Peugeot Boxer brought style changes. The bonnet has been clearly separated from the bumper, creating a distinctive threshold. The owners and enthusiasts of this model aptly noticed that the van gives the impression of flexing muscles. At the heart of the bumper was a plastic grille. Boxer II have side mirrors with incorporated indicator light. The manufacturer also offered them in versions with an outside temperature sensor in one of the mirrors. On the rear of the vehicle there were new, more modern rear lights. The cargo version had even more cargo space and offered 6 variants from 8 to 17 m3, and the load capacity (4 versions) ranged from 1 to 2 tons. Among the passenger version, in addition to the 8-passenger station wagon, a 15-passenger minibus was also available.

The French car manufacturer gave up completely gasoline engines. The conducted analyzes showed that gasoline units in delivery trucks are several times less popular than diesel engines. Therefore, the European version of the vehicle to this day is available for sale only with oil-powered engines. In the second generation Boxer there were two types of manual gearboxes - 5-speed and 6-speed, which transmitted power straight to the front axle.

Inside the Peugeot Boxer II was few modifications that would make it as similar as possible to a passenger car. Of course, the manufacturer didn’t forget to add a few pockets and storage compartments, which intensified the space potential of the van. The new version has been designed in such a way as to allow the installation of additional equipment - automatic air conditioning, an audio system with a hands-free kit or GPS satellite navigation. Over the years and the development of technology, subsequent solutions used in passenger cars have been gradually implemented it vans.

In 2014, 8 years after the premiere, the time has come for facelift Peugeot Boxer II. For some people, the changes have been so big that they call this version the third generation of the van. However, this is not a professional naming, because the manufacturer clearly indicated that it was only a facelift. The main change was the remodeling of the front, which fitted into the prevailing style of the French brand's models. It was the design that was to convince people interested in buying a van. Further changes concerned configuration options. The rear of the vehicle has been lowered by 7 centimeters thanks to the use of pneumatic suspension. The largest of the offered models has a total weight of 4 tons, while the version for transporting people offers 8 seats. Under the hood again there were 2 diesel units with the same capacities to date. This time, however, the smaller engine was available in three power variants - 110, 130 or 150 HP. The larger unit generates 180 hp. The refurbished version introduces new headlights with LED daytime running lights. To ensure optimal comfort for drivers and passengers, the seats have been replaced with a completely new generation. The functional changes also include a cup container integrated with the console and a holder for mobile devices and notebooks.
