Renault is launching the third generation of its iconic Trafic in around 50 countries globally. The third-generation features an entirely new exterior design, with the integrating the larger and more upright Renault logo. Carrying a forceful and dynamic stance, the Trafic dons wide, slender headlights that for an expressive look. Its more sloping windscreen allows for a clear division with the bonnet.
The Trafic features wide air intake and a body-colored trim strip between the two grilles with sharper lines making its silhouette more dynamic than before. Safety and sturdiness is further guaranteed by a protective, wrap-around front bumper on the Trafic.
In producing the new Trafic, Renault has built on its experience in the LCV segment to come up with a user-friendly, modern, comfortable and van that caters to the needs of customers while making necessary contributions to their businesses.
Customers can personalized their new Trafic as they want to, thanks availability of around 270 variants, two different heights, two different lengths, panel van, crew-van, platform cab and passenger versions. Add to that the solutions provided as by Renault’s approved converters and Renault Tech.
The Trafic is powered by a new range of downsized, turbocharged engines derived from the latest-generation 1.6 dCi unit (R9M) that features advanced technology to merge fuel economy with real driving enjoyment.
The engine is available in two versions: a single variable geometry turbo that returns 15 percent better fuel economy and the Twin-Turbo version that boasts mileage topping 47mpg.
These engines feature brisk pick-up and greater low-end torque for a more responsive acceleration. The third-generation Trafic was developed by Renault’s LCV engineers to be reliable and robust, built from the knowledge and expertise of around 1,800 workers at its Sandouville site. To shift the Trafic’s production to Sandouville, Renault spent over EUR230 million to overhaul and rework.
