Following its recent UK premiere at the CV Show, Renault has confirmed pricing and specification details for its eagerly anticipated All-New Trafic, starting from £18,245 (basic price excluding VAT and OTR charges).
A total of 72 variants will be available in the UK, with the French marque’s top-selling LCV range taking in panel and crew vans, platform cab and Passenger versions. Offering a choice of three trim levels, four frugal, yet responsive engines and a series of innovative and high-end equipment touches, All-New Trafic has been conceived to cover every business user need.
All-New Trafic – range line-up
The entry point for the range, and the likely best-seller, is the appropriately termed, Business. Its core features include a height adjustable driver’s seat with armrest, left side loading door (unglazed), reach and rake adjustable steering wheel, electric front windows, electric heated door mirrors, full steel bulkhead, spare wheel, remote central locking (two button key) and deadlocking, plus 16 anchorage points (18 on long wheelbase). And, new  are ESC with HSA (Hill Start Assist) and Grip Xtend (advanced traction control system to cope with loose surfaces (mud, sand and fresh snow etc.), plus DAB radio with USB connectivity all feature as standard.
Moving up to Business+ adds several items of equipment centred around its positioning as the perfect mobile office. Namely, a fold down centre passenger seat with removable A4 clipboard, laptop storage, and smartphone dock. Also offered as part of the £1,100 price walk from Business is air conditioning, full steel bulkhead with load-through facility (up to 4.15m in the long wheelbase version), and Wide View Mirror (set in the passenger side sun visor, it more than doubles the line of sight to the rear). On the outside, All-New Trafic’s modern lines are enhanced through body coloured front bumper, door rail and tail light column, as well as rear parking sensors.
Rounding the range off is Sport. The flagship of All-New Trafic offers everything even the most discerning business customer should require, with style, safety and technology touches abound. They include 17-inch alloy wheels, auto lights and wipers, Bluetooth, leather steering wheel, lidded upper dashboard storage, metallic paint and body coloured door mirrors and chrome grille, seven-inch touchscreen MediaNav multimedia and navigation system, cruise control, speed limiter and front fog lights.
