Review: Peugeot Boxer 2017 Chiller Van

As one of the most recent additions to our stock here at CoolKit, the Peugeot Boxer 2017 Chiller Van has a lot to offer business owners, whatever their cargo or nature of their business. This week on the blog, we’re taking a closer look at some of the features that make it so useful.

A Sizeable Refrigerated Van With An Impressive Loading Capacity

One of the most obvious – and striking – aspects of the Peugeot Boxer is the sheer size of the van. Its H2 roof and Long Wheelbase combine to give it a maximum payload of 1229kg; a seriously enviable bulk that makes it fantastic for high-capacity deliveries (or multiple smaller ones). This alone is enough to make it an attractive option for many of our customers, and it’s likely to become a fond favourite for drivers, too.

Its commanding exterior extends to a comfortable and spacious driver’s cab, with comfortable seats that hug the figure all the way up. In fact, several crew members can all fit quite comfortably into the cab, allowing the maximum amount of manpower to deal with loading and unloading. What’s more, loading the Boxer is notably easy because of its front-wheel drive, which means the van’s rear is relatively close to the ground. Considering all these factors as a whole, it’s clear that the Boxer has primarily been designed with practicality in mind – but its comfort is likely to be highly valued, too!

The Peugeot Boxer’s Handy Extra Features

The size of the cab means that there’s plenty of room within it for personal possessions and delivery documentation. This even extends to an extra storage box underneath the central console, while a pop-up document clip on top of the dash provides a useful place to have documentation immediately to hand. Meanwhile, a Satellite Navigation system takes care of all navigational requirements, while an integrated Bluetooth system contributes to the enhanced connectivity within the cab.

Cruise control enables drivers to maintain a steady, comfortable speed when driving, which is useful if you’re trying to encourage economical driving practices to increase fuel efficiency. Speaking of fuel efficiency, the Peugeot Boxer’s 2.0 litre engine, an upgrade from its previous iterations, means that it has lower emissions and improved fuel economy, estimated to be up to 15%.

All in all, the Peugeot Boxer is one of those rare breeds of refrigerated vehicles – both stylish and comfortable, practical and efficient. Its size may mean that it requires some deft handling at times from its driver, but its reversing parking sensors make it that little bit easier to navigate into tight parking spaces.

As is customary with our refrigerated vehicles, as part of our conversion the Boxer has been fitted with a hygienic GRP Interior surface, with a reinforced resin floor and aluminium floor edge tread plates to reduce the risk of crew slipping.
