New Trafic Panel Van gets a fresh look and new technology

The 4th GENERATION TRAFIC PANEL VAN is set to launch in South Africa with a noticeably improved exterior, improved technology and clever storage options.

Born in 1980, the TRAFIC PANEL VAN is a bestseller for the brand, with over 2.2 million units sold globally to date, in 50 countries.

RENAULT SA has retailed 2 Generations of the impressive TRAFIC Van, with 555 units sold.

With New TRAFIC, Renault is further strengthening the assets of its medium panel van, which is perfectly suited to the needs and expectations of craftsmen and fleet business 

MADE IN FRANCE FOR THE WORLD: 

Since 2014, the Renault plant in Sandouville, Normandy (France) has been the only factory to manufacture the 3rd generation of TRAFIC for all its markets around the world. In 2021, the plant celebrates its 57th anniversary, with more than 8 million vehicles produced, including over 800,000 TRAFIC.

The 4th Gen New TRAFIC Panel Van certainly dials in more value than before.

  • The New Renault TRAFIC features an updated more robust, and dynamic front face with full LED lights as standard.
  • The completely redesigned cabin is both a comfortable, ergonomic cockpit and a connected mobile office. It features a new dashboard with modern, functional, and ingenious equipment, and offers 84.8 litres of storage capacity, at the best market level. 
  • A striking new Cumulus Blue colour is now available in the mix. 

Boasting a new front end, New TRAFIC has also undergone a major overhaul of its interior, offering customer comfort and perceived quality comparable to that of a passenger car, in a more functional and practical cabin.  

ROBUST AND DYNAMIC: 

The New TRAFIC features a completely new front face, further reinforcing its DNA as an elegant and dynamic van. The more horizontal hood and vertical grille give it a robust and expressive style, highlighted by full LED headlights and a redesigned bumper. A new radio antenna, new 16-inch wheels and more elegant wheel covers are amongst the new additions. 

A COMPLETELY REDESIGNED INTERIOR:

The new dashboard, highlighted by a horizontal line that stretches into the door panels, gives a greater sense of space on board. The design also revisits the instrument panel, the door panels, the gearshift knob, and chrome inserts have been added. All of this contributes to significant increased perceived quality. 

ON BOARD COMFORT AND INTELLIGENCE FOR THE CUSTOMER:

The New TRAFIC offers power adjustable mirrors, comfortable upholstery and new door panels with wider armrests. By folding down the backrest on the middle seat, the cabin turns into a mobile office, with enough space for a laptop and an A4-size swivel stand to easily hold any working documents. The folding backrest of the central seat makes for added convenience. In terms of storage, the cabin is full of smart solutions to make life easier for the customer, including the new EASY LIFE drawer, accommodating 88 litres – 54 of which are located under the passenger bench seat – deeming it best in class.  

INFOTAINMENT:

The easy-to-use infotainment system comes integrated with R&Go® radio, Bluetooth, together with USB and AUX ports.

POWERFUL AND EFFICIENT ENGINE:

New TRAFIC has adopted a 2.0L Turbo Diesel engine (dCi 170), which is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The 2.0L engine is more powerful with an increase in power and torque vs. the previous generation, and is equipped with ECO Mode which offers overall improved fuel efficiency. 

A CONVENIENT, SMART, AND SAFE LOADING AREA:

This Long Wheel Base version, and the trap in the bulkhead enables New TRAFIC to offer the best load length in the segment with 4.15m. Using the zoning mode of the key, the driver can choose to lock/unlock the cabin and/or the loading area. For easier deliveries or tool retrieval, the load area is equipped standard with 1xsliding door (left) and 2x swing swivel rear doors that can be expanded within 2-mode options - 90° and 180°.
