Renault has announced pricing and full specification details for its heavily revised Trafic and Master, which bring updated exterior and interior design, and improved engines.
The new vans, first revealed in April and spearheading ambitious growth plans for the brand, are available to order now and start first deliveries in September. The new Trafic is priced from £22,800 (+VAT) and Master from £26,350 (+VAT).
As part of the redesign, Trafic gets full LED headlights, standard on all but the most basic trim levels, plus a new dashboard design and improved materials and the availability of new on-board multimedia solutions.
Engine line-up covers Renault’s new 2.0-litre Euro 6d Temp diesel engine, delivering 120hp, 145hp and a range-topping 170hp. The 170hp engine delivers a 25hp boost over the previous generation, with a 40Nm uplift, to 380Nm, though Renault claims that the single variable turbo engine will offer up to a 10% fuel saving over the previous model.
Renault will also offer an automated gearbox option in Trafic, with the availability of a six-speed EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) gearbox on both the 145hp and 170hp engines.
The van also benefits from an improved overall specification, with front and rear parking sensors and a rear parking camera on the options list, along with Trailer Swing Assist. New options also include a Renault three-button key with single door opening (SDO) option for improved vehicle security, driver safety and convenience. And the load area now benefits from improved LED lighting.
Payloads run from 1052kg to 1256kg for the panel van and 1076kg to 1133kg for the crew van, with details for some models still be confirmed.
The updated Master comes with a revised front-end with the C-shaped daytime running light signature that will be carried across all models. Inside, there’s a new dashboard design, while the centre section now also incorporates the MediaNav Evolution multimedia system navigation screen (compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay) as well as a docking station for digital tablets.
Master keeps the 2.3-litre diesel engine, updated to Euro 6d Temp/Euro IV, depending on version. Power has been boosted, to a maximum 180hp, with up to 400Nm of torque, while efficiency is improved, with the 145hp version delivering a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 0.6l/100 km (NEDC Correlated). All engines are matched to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while the 145 and 170hp versions can also be specified with the new six-speed EDC automatic.
The internal and external changes have been carried over to the Master Z.E. which can now be had in six versions, with two heights and three lengths. There are also two platform cab options available for the electric model, for conversion to high-capacity bodies of up to 22m3. Master Z.E. prices start from £54,900 (+VAT).
Master panel van payloads range from 848kg to 2461kg, with a range of 1180kg-1274kg for the crew van. It’s also the basis for several ‘off-the-shelf’ Renault Pro+ conversions – Luton Box Van, Luton LoLoader, Aluminium Tipper, Dropside – and is also offered through the RenaultPro+ Accredited Convertor programme, which encompasses over 30 convertors who have been officially approved by the manufacturer to produce quality, bespoke conversions to customers’ individual requirements.
