The Peugeot Van Range for 2024 – a round up

Peugeot, part of the huge Stellantis group that also owns Citroen, Fiat and Vauxhall has an enviable heritage of producing some excellent, fit-for-purpose and value-for-money vans. But, to keep the products competitive the company regularly update the Partner, Expert and Boxer models. So, in this article, Van Expert Tim Cattlin takes a look at the very latest versions of these award-winning vans.

Peugeot Partner

The Partner

Let’s start with the baby of the Peugeot range. Baby isn’t perhaps the most accurate description, this mighty little van is a workhorse extraordinaire with load-carrying capacities that exceed some much larger vans when it comes to payload.

The 2024 Partner has a new front end, especially futuristic and striking on the all-electric E-Partner. Otherwise, the exterior is familiar to us with the van being available in two lengths (not forgetting the Crew van option, too).

The cab interior has seen some changes with Peugeot claiming that the driving position has been extensively redesigned offering the driver not only greater comfort but additional practicality, too. There’s a revised dashboard and steering wheel, and a large 10” centrally mounted touchscreen has been added on the higher trim model.

Trim levels have been simplified – there are now just two to choose from. The Partner Professional comes as standard with air conditioning, cruise control, rear parking sensors and loads of driver aids and safety tech such as Lane Keep Assist, Advanced Emergency Braking System, Driver Attention Alert and more. Move up to Partner Asphalt and you’ll get that 10” HD screen with TomTom 3D Connected navigation, an alarm, and Dynamic Surround View, a package that includes a digital rearview mirror, front and rear park assist, Visiopark 180 and blind spot detection.

There’s a decent choice of power units on offer. The well-proven and reliable 1.5 litre diesel engines are available at outputs of 100PS or 130PS, although if you opt for the higher powered one you’ll also have to accept the 8-speed automatic transmission. No bad thing in my opinion but if you’re a stickler for a manual box, then you’ll have to be content with 100PS. But, let’s not forget the all-electric drivetrain in the E-Partner. This van has won many industry awards with its official Combined cycle range of 205 miles and its nippy 136PS motor. Despite the weight of the battery pack, the van still manages an excellent 781kg of payload capacity (model dependent, and excluding driver).

The Expert

Peugeot’s contender in the thriving medium van segment. The Expert has been around for a little while now but still maintains ultra-sharp looks with the new ‘family’ frontal perspective. Here’s another van that manages to provide operators with a huge amount of practicality whilst offering the driver a comfortable and safe working environment.

Let’s take a look at the business end. Once again, we’ve two body lengths in the range and a single roof height. Although the internal dimensions are fairly typical of most medium-sized vans, the payload available is class-leading, an absolute deal breaker for those needing to carry some serious weight during the working day.

Loadspace Dimensions and Payloads (standard panel van)

 Expert StandardExpert Long
Length (max at floor)2512mm2862mm
Width (side door on both sides)1636mm1636mm
Width between wheelarches1258mm1258mm
Maximum height1397mm1397mm
PayloadUp to 1384kgUp to 1335kg

On the outside of the van, it’s a similar story to that of the Partner, Peugeot having given the Expert a similar makeover at the front. This is where designers have a free hand to make a van look fresh and modern, unlike with a car there’s not a great deal they can do to the sides and rear.

Peugeot is claiming similar cab upgrades to the Partner too. The Expert also has a revised driving position – it’ll be interesting to see if this will counter some criticism that has been levelled at the Expert in the past for having the pedals slightly offset to one side. Not everyone notices it (I don’t) but some do and have been critical of it. Expert also gets the new dash, steering wheel and digital instrument cluster together with the 10” touchscreen.

Once again we have the Professional and Asphalt trim levels. Professional comes with air conditioning, cruise control, rear parking sensors, twin side load doors, and that 10” HD multimedia screen which includes a DAB radio, 4G connectivity and Wi-Fi capability. There’s a similar level of driver aids and safety tech as in the Partner. The Expert Asphalt adds the ‘Moduwork’ load through bulkhead system, allowing for longer loads, and the HD screen gets the TomTom Connected navigation system. The Dynamic Surround View package is also added, as are uprated LED headlights and body-coloured sections on exterior trim.

Whether you’re wanting a diesel or electric Expert, Peugeot has you well covered. There’s a range of 1.5-litre or 2.0-litre diesel engines with outputs of 120PS, 145PS and 180PS, with manual or 8-speed automatic gearboxes available. The award winning all electric E-Expert has the same battery and motor as on the equivalent E-Partner, and has a Combined cycle range of 194 miles. Even making a decent, realistic reduction for real-world conditions and payloads, this should be more than sufficient for the majority of van users to do a day’s work before overnight charging at home or the workplace.#

The Boxer

Here’s a van that has a reputation for being a true workhorse, able to tackle pretty much anything that can be thrown at it (perhaps not literally). With a choice of three body lengths and three roof heights, there are probably too many combinations to pop into a table as I have with the two other vans in the Peugeot range, but, here are a few highlights…

  • Load lengths from 3120mm to 4070mm
  • A standard load width of 1870mm
  • Load heights from 1662mm to 2172mm
  • Load volumes ranging from 10 to 17 cubic metres
  • Payloads from 1290kg to 1425kg (diesel, 3500kg GVM models) and up to 1385kg (electric, 4000kg GVM models).

Large vans can be a bit dull to look at, but Peugeot has done its best with a minor refresh at the front of the Boxer but it’s perhaps not as eye-catching as the updates to its smaller siblings. In the cab area, we’ve the new steering wheel design, instrument cluster and dashboard but Boxer also boasts new seat fabrics and door panels.

Unlike the other two ranges, there’s only a single trim level here. As often is with large vans from most manufacturers there are few ‘bells and whistles’, but, the important stuff is present and correct. Air conditioning, rear parking sensors, cruise control, a DAB radio and 5” screen (the electric van driver gets the 10” screen with smartphone integration and navigation – why the diesel operator is spared this I’m not sure), and the van comes with a rear parking camera. Safety tech is reasonably generous with an Advanced Emergency Braking System, Lane Support System, Traffic Sign Recognition, Driver Drowsiness Detection and Intelligent Speed Assist all included as standard.

The 2.2-litre diesel engine can be sourced at sensible power outputs of 140PS or 180PS and with manual or automatic gearboxes. The newly announced electric E-Boxer boasts an impressive set of statistics. The 272PS motor gives the van a 0-62mph acceleration time of 10 seconds, and a 110kWh battery means that the van has achieved a provisional WLTP test result of up to 261 miles. Something that will make the competition sit up and take notice, maybe?
