Renault Pro+ has announced the full specification and pricing for the new versions of its Trafic and Master light commercial vehicles.

New Trafic and New Master are available to order now with first deliveries scheduled for September. The Renault Master is popular with minibus convertors as a base vehicle, and the Trafic features in smaller fleets for private hire or school contracts.

The latest versions boast revised styling, new interiors and enhanced engines. The safety and maneuverability of New Master is also heightened with the availability of additional Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) functions, while New Trafic can be specified with a new six-speed Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) automatic transmission.

New Trafic
New Trafic has a more expressive front-end design, with full-LED headlamps incorporated into the C-shaped lighting signature that represents the identity of the Renault line.

New 2.0-litre, turbocharged dCi engines and the availability of a six-speed EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) automatic transmission ensure New Trafic is even more suited to the needs of business customers. All engines comply with Euro 6d-TEMP standards and, with a variable geometry turbocharger, achieve greater power outputs spanning from 120 to 170hp and increased torque of up to 380Nm.

Efficiency is improved too, with the 145hp version delivering a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 0.6 L/100 km (NEDC back-translated values). 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, which optimises economy and allows smoother, faster gear shifting.

In addition to the Panel Van version, and as with the previous model, New Renault Trafic is available in Passenger and SpaceClass body styles. Both variants benefit from the improved styling and drivetrain upgrades of the Panel Van, with the family-focused Passenger also receiving new upholstery, rear air conditioning booster and sliding windows. Depending on the version, there is a choice of three trim levels – Business, Business+ and Sport.

New Master
New Master has a more dynamic front-end design. In line with New Trafic and other Renault models, the larger van features the same C-shaped lighting signature. An elevated bonnet line, vertical front grille and ‘Urban grey’ colour complete the revised front-end styling.

Power is provided by a new range of 2.3-litre dCi engines, which comply with Euro 6d-TEMP/Euro VI standards (depending on the version) and benefit from twin-turbo technology. Power and torque are increased, with the respective maximums now being 180hp and 400Nm, yet fuel consumption has been reduced by up to 1L/100 km (NEDC back-translated values). Depending on the version, these advanced engines can be coupled to either a six-speed manual gearbox or six-speed automatic gearbox.

The all-electric, zero-emissions-in-use Z.E. version continues to feature in the latest Master line-up. Ideally suited for city centre last-mile usage, New Master Z.E. offers a real-world driving range of up to 75 miles and can be fully charged in six hours with the WallBox 32A/7.4 kW charging station.

New Trafic is priced from £22,800 excluding VAT and New Master from £26,350 excluding VAT.
