Peugeot Boxer Luton Review
The Peugeot Boxer Luton at a glance
Ever since the first Luton van took to the roads in 1930s Bedfordshire, this vehicle has been a staple of goods transportation and cargo storage. Fast forward to the 21st century and the Peugeot Boxer Luton is here to stay as an example of a durable motor that you can depend on for all your haulage needs.
With a range of innovative safety features and a competitive payload, the Peugeot Boxer is a great option if you’re looking for a dependable, practically fitted van option. Perfect for cargo-heavy industries such as removals and courier services, this vehicle gives you the space you need to load and unload with ease. The roomy cargo hold would also make for an ideal base for a van conversion, where the Luton shell can support a wide range of useful amenities.
Engines and Spec
The Peugeot Boxer Luton model has recently had an engine revamp to meet new emissions targets, where it is now fitted with an accomplished Euro 6 engine for extra fuel efficiency. The new 2.2 BlueHDi diesel engines have 118bhp and 138bhp options, combined with a user-friendly six speed manual gearbox for further driving ease.
An innovative stop/start system and handy hill descent controls will help you to drive safely over short or long distances. The vehicle’s built-in blind spot monitoring system can also help to keep you on track despite the van’s large payload, where a heavy load shouldn’t impact your driving experience.
Remote central locking makes sure your vehicle and its cargo is secure during stops, where the body and interior lives up to Peugeot’s distinctive design standards. A floating grill and stylish headlights help to streamline the Peugeot Boxer as a testament to practical engineering.
The structural interior of the Peugeot Boxer Luton is developed for prime loading safely, where the reinforced steel bulkhead is perfect for ensuring your cargo is secure throughout your journey. The strengthened body is designed for heavy-duty haulage, where you can rest assured that your goods will remain safe if stored in the loading area overnight. These features are ideal for transporting and loading valuable furniture if you are using your van for delivering domestic and commercial removals.
This vehicle’s load space is also designed to easily be able to accommodate industrial-sized pallets or large goods, which is ideal for loading individual packages as part of a courier delivery service. The Luton has a loading capacity of around 1000 kg, where an additional tail-lift on the Van Sales model helps to make loading and unloading even easier, where the mechanised lift can be operated at the touch of a button. This additional feature means that you can roll wheeled equipment such as electricals and landscaping machinery smoothly into the loading space.
The straightforward dashboard layout of the Boxer prioritises a utilitarian driving experience, where its no frills cab prioritises front-window visibility for optimal driving safety. This is perfect for navigating tightly parked suburban streets or pivoting into narrow spaces to load and unload.
The cab of the Peugeot Boxer Luton is crafted with further storage in mind, where there are excellent space options in the glove box, the centre of the dashboard, and along the passenger side door. There is also extra storage availability above the cab, where all of this space makes for an ideal van conversion vehicle.
