Peugeot’s Australian van range expands
Broader Peugeot Boxer, Expert and Partner LCV range due early in 2022

PEUGEOT Australia has revealed pricing of its new light commercial vehicle (LCV) range for 2022, including a revitalised model grade walk-up for its Boxer, Expert and Partner portfolios.
Aimed at meeting a variety of business needs, Peugeot says its revised MY22 range will give LCV customers greater choice by making its small, medium, and large vans available in a variety of model-dependant trim grades.
The change brings a specification realignment to Peugeot’s once-basic LCV range, the French marque describing the new trim grades as “providing a choice of equipment levels closely aligned to each vehicle’s intended use”.
As such, entry-level City variants, Peugeot says, are all about work, the brand making minor equipment adjustments to target a lower price point when compared to equivalent outgoing models.
The next tier Pro variants are aimed at owner-drivers in need of a ‘fit for purpose’ van with improved safety and equipment levels, while the third-tier Premium offers a more car-like experience for small-to-medium operators and tool-of-trade buyers.
At the top of the four-variant strategy is the Sport, which is exclusive to the mid-size Expert range. Peugeot says this comprehensively equipped van is made to stand out, and is safe, comfortable and equipment packed.
Long- and short-wheelbase variants remain available, as does the choice of petrol and diesel engines with manual or automatic transmissions.
The flagship of the Peugeot LCV range is the full-size Boxer, which is now priced from $48,990 before on-road costs. Available as a single variant for MY22, the three-seat Boxer Long Pro features a 1590kg payload and 13 cubic metre cargo space across its 3700mm load bed.
A carry-over 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine developing 120kW/310Nm is paired exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission in the Boxer, providing fuel consumption of 6.4 litres per 100km on the ADR combined cycle. The Boxer continues to offer a braked towing capacity of 2500kg.
Mid-size Peugeot Expert (from $38,990 + ORC) will now chase segment volume with a revised line-up Peugeot Australia says makes each variant a distinct value proposition. Short (4950mm) and long (5300mm) body lengths feature a common 1940mm roof height, and the availability of two turbo-diesel engine options.
The first, a 2.0-litre four-cylinder, develops 110kW/370Nm (6.0L/100km) and is paired to a six-speed manual transmission or optional eight-speed automatic, while the second ‘high output’ version offers 130kW/400Nm from the same engine capacity and offered with an eight-speed auto only.
All Expert models include dual side sliding doors and barn doors at the rear. Payload ranges from 1000-1350kg with between 5.3 and 6.1 cubic metres of cargo space available between variants. Braked towing capacity is listed at 2100kg and 1800kg for short and long wheelbase models respectively.
For the small-sized Partner, short and long wheelbase variants come with 1.2-litre petrol engines in two states of tune.
Available with 81kW/205Nm (5.8L/100km) with a six-speed manual transmission or 96kW/230Nm (5.9L/100km) with an eight-speed auto, the three-seat Partner also provides maximum payload capacities of 629-1000kg depending on variant.
Carrying capacity ranges from 3.9 to 4.4 cubic metres for short and long wheelbase variants respectively, with braked towing capacity ranging from 950 to 1300kg.
“We have seen how Peugeot's LCV range has resonated with Australian consumers, particularly with small and medium-sized business owners, since its 2019 launch and we are confident the new range will further increase that appeal,” said Peugeot Australia general manager Kate Gillis.
“With a line-up that now caters to a broader variety of customer needs and aligns with the expectations of our buyers, there is great anticipation for the arrival of the new range.”
Full specifications for the MY22Boxer, Expert, and Partner models will be announced closer to their Australian launch in early 2022.
