The engine still records the lowest consumption of the category, making 9.5 km / l in the city and 9.6 km / l on the road. Thanks to the emission control system coupled to the engine, it is also the least polluting, emitting only 206 g / km of CO²;- The mechanics of the new Peugeot Boxer is another quality differential. The van is manufactured with the modern and robust mechanical base of the European model, but completely adapted to the Brazilian roads and highways, citing as example the increase of 10 mm in height compared to the ground compared to the brother of the old continent. The six-speed manual transmission, the reinforced suspension package and the oversized brake system are also highlights for our reality.
The model is the most complete, with most technological security items as standard in its category in the country. Equipment such as the ESP (Electronic Stability Program), which includes the Adaptive Load Control (ASR), ASR (anti-roll) and Ramp Start Assist functions ensure more assertive and safe driving;- Practicality, quality and comfort are adjectives that summarize the interior of the new Peugeot Boxer. All the interior, from the thickness of the seats, adjustments of the seats (including for the lumbar in the case of the driver), position and size of the steering wheel, distance of equipment in the panel, armrest (driver) and even a small table were developed and adjusted to provide more quality of life and generate greater productivity for those who use the vehicle.To meet the highest quality and agility, Peugeot has developed a special program of exclusive services aimed at its consumer who uses the vehicles in a professional way: the Peugeot Total Care Pro.

The most modern engine of the category in the country The new Peugeot Boxer arrives to the market already with the intention of inaugurating a new era in the category K2-K3 of vans. Not only for its sweeping design and in line with the European generation of the vehicle, but bringing a powerful engine, technologically, economically and environmentally responsible. We are talking about the 2.0 Turbo Diesel BlueHDi engine, which combines fuel economy, high performance and great reduction in pollutant emissions. This factor has already been evaluated and approved by INMETRO, which awarded seal B in the ‘National Energy Conservation Label’ program.Associated with the 130 hp engine at 3,750 rpm and torque of 340 Nm at 1,750 rpm, there is a clutch with hydraulic control that provides maintenance of the pedal drive load and a lower maintenance cost. The six-speed manual transmission (ML6C), designed and adapted to the Brazilian conditions, completes the whole.
This combination is one of the secrets of the benchmark performance of the model, achieving higher performance with lower fuel consumption without losing agility and power as it allows the 2.0 Turbo Diesel BlueHDi engine to run most of its time at its maximum efficiency range.Also adjusted to follow the reality of the roads and roads of Brazil, full of spines, holes, gaps, ditches, holes, etc., without loss of comfort and performance, the van brings reinforced suspensions, guaranteeing stability, safety and precision. in the worst land.

The diesel engine emits pollutants from the combustion of unburned hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulates. Through BlueHDi, these components are eliminated in three steps:
In the former, unburned hydrocarbons (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO) are converted to water (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2) in the oxidation catalyst;\ In the second stage, the conversion of nitrogen oxides (NOx) into water and nitrogen by introduction of AdBlue (water and urea mixture – equivalent to Arla 32) into the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) catalyst;- In the third step, the reduction of 99.9% of the number of particles within the particle filter occurs.Quality tested under the most extreme conditionsIn order to guarantee a high level of reliability and resistance compatible with intense customer use of the new Peugeot Boxer, more than 4 million kilometers have been driven in its development under the most extreme conditions, whether under load, half load or empty, or on any type of route, including degraded roads and the mountain.Reliability and durability have also been proven by specific tests, including:- 1,500 hours in temperatures of -20 ° and + 40 ° C to guarantee the aging resistance ofthe components and materials of the mechanical, plastic and electronic parts;
1000 passes in 10 cm of water or in 2 to 3 cm with projections of salt water, without washing of the vehicle during the following 1.000 km to validate the watertightness and the resistance to the corrosion;- 500,000 cycles of door closing and opening tests performed from -30 ° to + 80 ° C, representing a severe use by the customer over 10 years.In addition to the quality controls performed during all stages of production, more than 1,800 appearance and functional features are tested on each vehicle at the factory.
