The new Renault Trafic has arrived in Australia, priced from $48,200. With a redesigned front end, improved equipment levels and updated safety features, trafic brings Australian commercial buyers more safety, comfort and technology, plus greater engine efficiency and improved towing capability.
“New Trafic is designed to bring Australians a highly capable addition to their business, with a confident new look and car-like comfort and convenience,” said General Manager, Renault Australia, Glen Sealey.
“We’ve also worked hard to ensure businesses are kept on the road longer, because the cost of a vehicle doesn’t stop after purchase, so we’ve ensured Trafic customers have a hardworking, yet efficient, powertrain backed by an extensive five-year/200,000km warranty, Capped Price Servicing and long 30,000km service intervals – every aspect of new Trafic is designed to keep your business moving.”
Trafic is available in eight different configurations, with a choice of short wheelbase (SWB) and long wheelbase (LWB) van, as well as a six-seat LWB crew van. Three equipment levels see the SWB and LWB van offered in Pro and Premium, while the crew van is available in Pro and Lifestyle variants.
All models bring a dynamic new exterior with redesigned front-end incorporating C-shaped LED headlights, sleeker bumper, new horizontal bonnet and upright grille with chrome inserts.
An upgraded interior brings a premium car-like feel, featuring new dashboard and gear lever designs, full-width horizontal trim detail and continued best-in-class storage space of up to 84.2 litres and best-in-class headroom. Renault Australia said Trafic has been holistically designed to ensure it has the features businesses need while keeping the cost of ownership down.
Safety and technology upgrades include an active emergency braking system, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition. Automatic high and low beam for the headlights offer a 20 per cent increase in beam range over the previous generation.
A new full colour 8.0-inch Easy Link display offers the latest in connectivity and usability. While Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, DAB, Bluetooth and USB connectivity are standard on all models with Qi wireless smartphone charging available on Premium and Lifestyle Trafic for the first time. According to Renault Australia, Trafic’s cabin tech and convenience is part of a comfortable, refined driving experience that brings car-like cabin comfort with high levels of safety equipment.
Every new Trafic is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine with a choice of six-speed manual or electronic dual clutch (EDC) automatic transmissions. The powertrain produces 125kW/380Nm, which combined with the six-speed manual version is capable of 7.2L/100km and when paired with the EDC uses 6.5L/100km. This efficiency combines with a large 80 litre fuel tank to bring extended range for fewer fuel stops, saving time and money.
New Trafic also brings a versatile payload of up to 1,280kg and up to 2.5-tonne towing capability, combined with a best-in-class 4.15m load length, accessed by standard dual-sliding side doors and rear barn doors on Premium versions. The maximum cargo bay area is 6.7m3.
Trafic has 30,000km/12-month service intervals. It is also backed by a five-year, 200,000km warranty and up to five Capped Price Services for predictable low running costs and ease of ownership.
