CV Show 2014: Renault Trafic and Master revealed to the public

  • 29 April 2014
  • By Andy Salter

There was plenty of activity on the Renault stand on day one of the CV Show, with both the Trafic and Master getting their first public airing.

The Master sits atop the Renault commercial vehicle line-up and, as with the medium-sized Trafic, it shares the product with Vauxhall, which calls its version Movano.

From the outside, the main change is the new grille, sharing the Renault family identity, while in-cab the driver is treated to a few cosmetic changes, as well as the addition of the new blindspot wide-view mirror incorporated into the passenger sun visor, hill-start assist and a traction control system, called Grip Xtend for muddy conditions.

However, the biggest changes are under the bonnet where Renault has made some improvements to the 2.3-litre engine line-up offering more power and improved efficiency. New twin-turbo 165hp and 135hp versions of the diesel motor are now available, with Renault claiming a 7.3mpg and 4.7mpg fuel efficiency improvement respectively over their outgoing equivalents. These two twin-turbo options are joined by 125hp and 110hp single turbocharged variants of the same engine.

Both front wheel and rear wheel drive versions of the Master remain, although Renault has now added a single rear tyre version of the long-wheelbase, high-roof Master offering increased payload and improved load space as a result of the smaller wheeler arch protrusion compared to the twin-wheel version. Pricing of the new Master will be announced at the end of May, with the first registrations expected to hit the road in September.

  • Renault has announced a new Ready 4 Work van body fitment range in conjunction with specialist Bri-Stor. The new range of internal racking and storage equipment will be fitted at Renault’s import centre and delivered to the customer fully equipped. “This is aimed at small business who are looking for an off-the-shelf solution. We are starting with new Trafic, but intend to offer the Ready 4 Work option across the whole of the van line-up,” said Ken Ramirez, managing director for Renault UK and Ireland.
