For the 2017 Peugeot Boxer, the BlueHDi 2.0-liter turbo diesel has been updated will all the goodies it needs to comply with the Euro 6 standards. Not only is it that bit more frugal than before, but the 2.0-liter oil-burning four-cylinder engine also boasts more power and torque than the EU5 unit, all while emitting less CO2 out the tailpipe.

That said, the updated BlueHDi 2.0 range for the Peugeot Boxer consists of three output levels: 110 horsepower and 300 Nm (an increase of 50 Nm), 130 horsepower and 340 Nm (an increase of 20 Nm), 160 horsepower and 350 Nm (an increase of 10 horsepower). Regardless of output, the BlueHDi 2.0 comes as standard with a six-speed manual tuned for fuel economy, plus fuel-saving Stop & Start tech.

Regarding fuel economy, the 2017 Peugeot Boxer can drink as little as 6 liters of fuel / 100 kilometers. Converted to imperial gallons, that’ll be 47 mpg. Regarding CO2, the large van emits as little as 154 grams per kilometer, which translates to a reduction of 30 grams of carbon dioxide.

Better still, payload and maximum speed mirror those of the Euro 5-compliant Peugeot Boxer. In addition to this, the French manufacturer is adamant that get-up-and-go has improved by up to 4 seconds for the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) run. What’s more impressive is the added performance from 50 to 80 mph (80 to 100 km/h): 8 seconds improvement for the BlueHDi 2.0 110.

As expected, the key to these improvements in all areas comes in the form of selective catalytic reduction. The 15-liter AdBlue tank of the Boxer is good for up to 6,200 miles (10,000 kilometers) between fill-ups.

With best-in-class fuel consumption, the Peugeot Boxer is sure to soldier on as one of the best vans in its segment.
