Renault has revealed its New TRAFIC Passenger and SpaceClass passenger transport vehicles. Joining the award-winning TRAFIC range, the latest additions feature enhanced design inside and out, advanced semi-autonomous driver aids and Renault’s latest infotainment technology.
Aimed at large families and professionals in passenger transport, New TRAFIC Passenger delivers space and versatility, for up to nine people plus increased luggage capacity. Yet this incredible practicality has been achieved without compromising comfort and refinement.
Inside, the vans are designed to deliver the perfect balance of practicality and comfort, with passenger-car cues creating an attractive, premium environment. The all-new dashboard features an eye-catching horizontal strip that blends into the door panels, giving a wraparound look and an even more spacious feel. Customisation options are enhanced by a range of new colours and materials, while New TRAFIC SpaceClass benefits from an exclusive and elegant Meteor Grey dashboard finish.
Practicality is enhanced with the inclusion of even more storage spaces. Overall, the interior houses an impressive 84 litres of handy storage solutions. As before, the vast boot delivers up to 1,800-litres of carrying capacity.
Significant changes have also been made to the technological and connected features of New TRAFIC Passenger and New TRAFIC SpaceClass, with both benefiting from the latest infotainment. The new 8-inch EASY LINK touchscreen is available from display brings enhanced levels of connectivity and usability, including full smartphone integration with Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM. Satellite navigation is also standard, while the option of a wireless smartphone charger allows the front occupants to stay connected all day long.
Elsewhere, New TRAFIC Passenger and New TRAFIC SpaceClass benefit from the latest generation of semi-autonomous driving aids. These include adaptive cruise control that automatically maintains a safe distance to the vehicle in front, plus an Active Emergency Braking System (AEBS). Other new features include Blind Spot Warning and a new passenger airbag that’s been optimised to protect two front seat passengers.
A series of new optional packs will also be available, depending on the need of the customer and the intended use of the vehicle. Specialists in VIP and passenger transport will be able to take advantage of the luxurious Prestige Pack featuring two independent swivelling captain’s chairs, a bench seat replacing the third row seats, a reading light and leather interior throughout. A new Adventurer Pack features similar options with the addition of a third row of seats that can fold completely flat to form a bed.
New TRAFIC Passenger and New TRAFIC SpaceClass are available with three versions of Renault’s 2.0-litre diesel engine, including the new dCi 150. Delivering an increase in 5hp over the unit it replaces, this responsive and refined engine joins the frugal dCi 110 and the powerful dCi 170.
All engines are equipped with Stop & Start technology, helping make New TRAFIC Passenger and New TRAFIC SpaceClass compatible with the latest Euro 6D-full emissions regulations.
Full details and prices of New TRAFIC models will be released early next year.
