The new Renault Trafic combines the strengths of its predecessor with a series of key improvements. In addition to its new, robust and dynamic design which features the Renault brand’s new styling cues, new Trafic is even bigger, making it more comfortable and practical than ever. The front and rear overhangs have been extended by 10cm and 11cm respectively, while maximum load lengths of 3.75m and 4.15m for the L1 and L2 versions respectively establish a new benchmark for the market. At the same time, the bulkhead has been located 3cm further back in order to enhance comfort inside the extensively revised cabin. Designed to serve as a mobile office, its cabin features a raft of bespoke equipment options, including mobile phone and tablet cradles, space for a laptop computer, and a removable A4-size clipboard to simplify the lives of business customers. New Trafic is powered by the R9M engine which is available with either one (dCi 90) or two (Energy dCi 140) turbochargers. The new Energy dCi 140 features Stop & Start as standard. New Trafic combines performance with fuel efficiency and consumes just 6.2 litres/100km and emits just 164g of CO2. This represents a fuel saving of 2.1 litres/100km compared to the previous Trafic MT.

Commenting on the launch of the new Renault Trafic, Justin Hocevar, Managing Director Renault Australia, said: “The all-new Renault Trafic is an exceptional product and we are thrilled to be introducing it to Australia. In recent years we have seen the popularity of the Renault Trafic soar to third in its segment and we are confident the new model will build on this success. “We have a broad range of options to suit all business needs and combined with the exceptionally smooth and quiet driving experience of the new model, the all-new Trafic stacks up strongly against the competition,” said Hocevar.

The entry point for the range is the short-wheelbase L1H1 with dCi 90 engine. Its core features include a height adjustable driver’s seat with armrest, 3-abreast seating, left side loading door (unglazed), reach and rake adjustable steering wheel, electric front windows, electric heated door mirrors, spare wheel, remote central locking (three button key) with separate locking for the cargo area plus 16 anchorage points.  New features include ESC with HSA (Hill Start Assist) and Grip Xtend (advanced traction control system to cope with loose surfaces such as mud, sand and fresh snow, etc.), rear parking sensors, plus Bluetooth audio and telephone and USB connectivity, all fitted as standard. Next up is the new twin-turbo ENERGY dCi 140 engine available in either short-wheelbase L1H1 or long-wheelbase L2H1. The L1H1 dCi 140 has an RRP of $36,990 while the L2H1 dCi 140 has an RRP of $38,490. The twin-turbo ENERGY dCi 140 engine adds several items of equipment centred around its positioning as the perfect mobile office. Namely, a front bench seat which includes a folding centre passenger seat with removable A4 clipboard, 54 litres of extra storage under seat and laptop storage. Also offered as standard are automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, full steel bulkhead with load-through facility (up to 4.15m in the long wheelbase version), a leather steering wheel and a high-definition reversing camera.
