Renault have been at the top of the European LCV market since 1998, and today they are continuing on this successful road with the help of the all-new 'office on wheels' the Renault Trafic. Since its launch earlier this year the Trafic has already won numerous awards, including What Van's 'Best Medium Van 2015, and it also triumphed at the 2014 MPG Marathon winning 'Best Light Commercial Vehicle'. At Charles Hurst Renault we are proud to sell the new Trafic in a range of models and specifications.
The all new Trafic has been redesigned to incorporate the brands new expressive style, the firm front end has the Renault logo placed above the grille over a contrasting black trim. The grille and front bumper are separated by a body colour giving the Trafic a powerful stance. The new Renault Trafic is available with a choice of an impressive 10 different body colours including two brand new colours Bamboo Green (see above) and Copper.
The interior of the Trafic has also gone through some design changes to allow for more room and manoeuvrability. The Trafic now features up to 14 storage areas and has the capacity to carry a load of up to 90 litres. The length of the Trafic has also been extended by 210mm which will enable more room in the loading bay. Other features of the cabin include a new dashboard styled similar to that of a passenger car which has the Renault totem-style centre console system. New high density foam seats will provide you with the ultimate in comfort whilst you drive, and for passengers the front bench has seat cushions and backs for support. Even more comfort is provided via the new armrest which has been built into the door panel. The new Trafic seat cushion has been lowered by 36mm compared to the previous model meaning that the driving position is similar to that found in an MPV.
Office on Wheels
The new Renault Trafic has been dubbed 'An office on wheels' by the French manufacturers and the reason being the new model has everything you need to run a business while on the road. For your mobile phone there is a cradle mount positioned on the dashboard within easy reach of the driver and it can adapt to fit varying sizes. There is also a cradle mount for a tablet, and when the central seat is tipped forward and lifted the lid built into the seat reveals a space for a laptop of up to 17 inches. What's so exciting about the new Trafic is the amount of internal storage, there are 14 bins, trays, cubbies all of varying sizes designed to hold anything from boxes to water bottles.
When it comes to technology Renault knows what their commercial customers' needs are and that's why the new Trafic comes with a wide range of innovative technologies. The entry level model comes with a 1 DIN radio complete with Bluetooth® hands-free telephony and a fascia-mounted USB port and jack socket. As with all Renault models they now have the ability to connect between your mobile phone or tablet to your vehicle through their R & Go® application. Once the app is downloaded to an Android or iOS phone you can connect with your vehicle's radio and have easy access to: The vehicle's trip computer, 3D navigation, hands free use of the telephone, and control of all multimedia functions, so you can concentrate on driving.
The new Trafic is available with the choice of two lengths and two heights as well as crew van, platform van and passenger variants. The sliding side doors will allow easy access and the back doors are the same as previous models so those who have previously had a younger model can re-use all their existing interior fittings.
The new Renault Trafic comes in a range of both petrol and efficient diesel engines. The choice includes a geometry turbocharger (dCi 90 hp and dCi 115 hp) and Twin Turbo (ENERGY dCi 120 hp and dCi 140 hp), with the Twin Turbo engine being able to achieve fuel economy up to 47.9mpg.
