Trafic voted Van of the Year 2002
With its striking design, New Trafic looks dynamic and sturdy, and make a clean break with conventional LCVs. No fewer than 33 variations are available, with two wheelbases (3,098mm and 3,498mm), two payloads (1,000kg and 1,200kg) and three type of body (van, combi and platform cab), making it suitable for the needs of a wide range of businesses.
The common-rail turbodiesel engines, available with 80bhp and 100bhp (a 133bhp version will be added later), and the 2.0 16V petrol unit developing 120bhp provide excellent performance and torque while keeping down fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and running costs.
Maintenance costs, a key factor for buyers in the LCV market, are particularly low with Renault New Trafic. Servicing is less frequent, with an oil change needed only every 30,000km (or two years), and the engine should last at least 250,000km.
Finally, New Trafic’s safety equipment complies with a particularly ambitious set of specifications and makes this LCV a benchmark in its segment. One example is the four disc brakes fitted to all versions that give it class-leading shopping distances.
