Placing the new PEUGEOT Boxer in its time through a strong and modern identity, including the Brand’s styling cues, adapted to the commercial vehicle world, was the challenge taken up by the PEUGEOT Design Department.
A commercial vehicle must be practical and sturdy, but must also enhance its business users, as it contributes towards the image of their company and business. The new resolutely modern front end is evocative of power and strength. The bonnet, with its pronounced lines is underlined by the Brand badge. The wide grille – inspired by the new PEUGEOT 308 – is surrounded by a metallic grey finisher that appears to be machined from solid.
The new PEUGEOT Boxer adopts a very expressive, feline and technological look, reinforced by the grille continuing up to the headlamps, which now include daytime running lamps as standard with LEDs as an option.
Its new imposing bumpers provide maximum protection and include in the lower part, two circular recesses to receive, as an option or standard, the front foglamps, made of polycarbonate for greater strength. Just above, two rectangular recesses serve as steps to facilitate cleaning the windscreen. The rear end is enhanced by the Brand badge and a new lighting signature, which emphasises the modernity of the new PEUGEOT Boxer and provides improved visibility from the side for rear lighting.
In the functional and comfortable interior, the new PEUGEOT Boxer also shows improvements in elegance and perceived quality. The steering wheel adopts a more modern form and gives a feeling of strength from the first touch. To improve comfort and handling, it can be trimmed in leather as an option.
The dashboard receives a new control panel with a new range of audio systems, while the new black ‘Darko’ cloth punctuated with red and grey is adopted for the seats, with the brown Achille trim as an option. The whole effect contributes towards the perception of improved quality and modern appearance of the cabin.

ABS, ESP, EBA - Emergency Braking Assistance, a driver’s airbag and electric windows are all part of the standard equipment, together with a steel bulkhead between the cabin and the loading area, contributing towards better noise suppression.
