The latest generation New Trafic Passenger builds on the strengths of its predecessors to offer large families and passenger transport professionals even more refinement, space and connectivity. 

With a dynamic new appearance, a completely redesigned interior and the latest technology in terms of infotainment and driver assistance systems, New Trafic Passenger represents a thoroughly stylish and comfortable way in which to transport up to nine people and a large amount of luggage.

New Trafic Passenger offers customers a choice of Business and Sport specifications, with both trim levels benefiting from generous levels of equipment. The car-like feel is further enhanced with the availability of a choice of smooth and efficient engines, which all feature Stop & Start functionality and are paired to either a six-speed manual transmission or the six-speed EDC dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The new model is available from £28,750 plus VAT.

AT A GLANCE

EXTERIOR
A host of changes have ensured the New Trafic Passenger boasts a confident and dynamic look with greater presence on the road and a sense of robust capability, complemented by premium details and a more car-like design.

This has been achieved by a completely redesigned front end featuring a new horizontal bonnet and vertical grille, with sleeker bumpers and new LED lighting featuring the distinctive C-shape daytime running light signature, marking its connection to Renault’s latest passenger vehicles. Chrome inserts to the light units and grille elements round off the striking new front end.

A new 17-inch alloy wheel design gives a refreshed and premium look. Tinted windows and additional colour-coded elements complete the more premium finish, enhanced further by a choice of seven exterior paint finishes, including the striking new Carmin Red metallic option.

INTERIOR
The interior of the New Trafic Passenger has undergone a significant transformation with an all-new premium design, the latest technology and a spacious feel. Influenced by Renault’s range of passenger cars, the sophisticated new interior provides an attractive and comfortable environment for all occupants, with eye-catching details, quality materials and clever practical touches.

A new full-width horizontal trim detail provides a greater sense of width and space to the cabin, which is complemented by new steering wheel and gear lever design, heating controls embellished with chrome detail and sleek, cohesive overall design that’s easy to operate and more user-friendly to interact with.

A sophisticated and simple new instrument panel houses a crisp 4.2-inch TFT colour display and clear dials on Sport models (3.5-inch black and white display on Business specification), while a new EASY LINK display sits in the driver’s eye line for greater ease of use with more functions than ever, supplemented by a row of piano-touch keys located just below for further vehicle controls.

Visibility from the driver’s seat has been enhanced with 30 per cent larger door mirrors that fold electrically with integrated side indicators, while the view out is aided by the high driving position and a host of safety and driver assistance systems make driving as easy and safe as possible.

The interior continues to put an emphasis on practicality and space, with even more storage areas than before – up to 84 litres throughout the cabin – while the large boot offers up to 1,800 litres of luggage volume. This can grow to 5.7mwhen the 2nd and 3rd row seats are removed. Customers benefit from a choice of short or long wheelbase models, ensuring there’s a New Trafic Passenger to suit all needs, the latter featuring an even greater amount of space for luggage behind the three rows of seating, with up to 1,136mm of cargo length and a maximum loading width of 1,662mm.

POWERTRAINS AND DRIVING
The New Trafic Passenger is powered by one of three versions of Renault’s smooth and efficient 2.0-litre Blue dCi diesel engine, available in dCi 110, dCi 150 and dCi 170 forms. All versions are front-wheel drive and feature the latest fuel-saving Stop & Start functionality, contributing to the New Trafic Passenger’s compliance with the most stringent Euro 6D-full emissions regulations. Reduced CO2 emissions across the New Trafic Passenger range also results in lower VED bandings, ensuring customers benefit from lower overall running costs with the new model.

The dCi 110 – fitted as standard on all models with a six-speed manual transmission – produces 110hp and 320Nm of torque, returning up to 39.8mpg combined and emitting as little as 186g/km of CO2. This engine is available across both Business and Sport specifications.

Also available across both trim levels, the dCi 150 variant is available with the six-speed manual or six-speed EDC dual-clutch automatic transmissions. The manual variant returns up to 39.2mpg and as little as 185g/km of CO2 emissions, while the smooth-shifting EDC dual-clutch automatic returns 38.2mpg and 194g/km of CO2.

The most powerful dCi 170 engine is available exclusively with the smooth-shifting EDC automatic gearbox, producing 170hp and 380Nm of torque for effortless performance, while still returning up to 37.7mpg combined and CO2 emissions as low as 196g/km. Performance is strong with a 115mph top speed and accelerates from zero to 62mph in 10.6 seconds. This powertrain is reserved for New Trafic Passenger Sport models, available in both SWB and LWB body lengths.

TECHNOLOGY
The New Trafic Passenger features the latest infotainment technology as well as the most up-to-date Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) available across the Renault PRO+ line-up.

A significant change in the cabin is the new 8.0-inch EASY LINK display located on the dashboard, offering the latest in connectivity and usability to New Trafic Passenger Sport customers.

The new touchscreen system enables full smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and also features satellite navigation as standard, plus the full selection of DAB, Bluetooth and USB connectivity options that are available on both Business and Sport models.

The EASY LINK system features connected navigation services for three years, and includes Google search for places of interest, live traffic information and weather forecasts. An optional wireless smartphone charger is also available for the first time for added convenience.

The latest generation of driver aids and safety systems are also available, including adaptive cruise control that safely maintains the distance to the car in front and an Active Emergency Braking System (AEBS) that provides braking force if a potential collision is detected ahead of the vehicle and the driver does not take action following visual and audible warnings.

Further safety features include Blind Spot Monitoring and Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition and automatic high and low beam for the LED headlights, which offer 20 per cent increase in beam over the previous generation. There’s also an innovative new passenger airbag that has been optimised to protect two passengers occupying the two front passenger seats alongside the driver, while a parking assist system aids with manoeuvres along with reversing camera.

UK SPECIFICATIONS
The New Trafic Passenger range starts with Business specification, available from £28,750 plus VAT, powered by dCi 110 or dCi 150 engines across both SWB and LWB models. All models feature a generous list of standard equipment that includes full LED front headlamps with C-shape daytime running lights, 16-inch wheels, DAB radio with Bluetooth connectivity, USB socket and Aux input, plus 3.5-inch black and white TFT cluster in the instrument panel.

Added convenience comes from a 12-volt power socket in the second row, electric front windows and side mirrors, plus cruise control with speed limiter, and remote central locking, while comfort is taken care of with new black KOMPO upholstery to all seats. The second row of seats features ISOFIX child seat anchors on the outer seats, and there are sliding doors on both sides of the vehicle for optimal access. The luggage area features a practical protective rubber mat and parcel shelf for added security

The New Trafic Passenger Sport – available from £28,750 plus VAT – features an even more comprehensive list of standard equipment. This includes automatic headlights and wipers, metallic paint with body coloured front bumper, sliding door rail and rear tail-light column, plus 17-inch alloy wheels, premium chrome grille detailing with gloss black badge surround, tinted windows and electric folding mirrors on the outside.

Inside, Sport specification adds the latest EASY LINK infotainment system with 8.0-inch touchscreen display, DAB radio, Bluetooth and USB connections, with full smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The EASY LINK navigation system also features three years of connected services that includes Google search capability for places of interest, live traffic information and weather forecasts.

A 4.2-inch TFT colour driver information display, manual air conditioning and JAVA upholstery with faux leather steering wheel add to the comfort and convenience features, along with LED interior lighting and premium dashboard with horizontal grain and chrome detailing.

Complementing the quality trim details is the full-height interior trim that features soft-touch materials for a more refined and car-like environment, ensuring the areas the driver and passengers come into contact with are premium and more cossetting, with superior refinement. Aiding the driver are rear parking sensors, a Driver Attention Alert system and front fog lights. 

WARRANTY
The New Renault Trafic Passenger is covered by a three-year warranty. It features an unlimited mileage limit in the first two years and up to 100,000 miles in the third.

MANUFACTURING
The New Renault Trafic Passenger, as with the rest of the Trafic range, is produced on a dedicated LCV line at Renault’s Sandouville plant in Northern France.

The build of the specialised vehicle is undertaken on-site by Renault TECH. This helps keep delivery times short and reduces logistical demands.

Renault announced its plan to make Sandouville an LCV production centre in 2011. In preparation, 5,000 tonnes of cast iron were used to manufacture LCV production line tooling, equivalent to three-quarters of the weight of the Eiffel Tower’s metal frame.

In body assembly, 20,000m² of space was freed up to install new tooling, including 187 new robots to make the 5,000 spot welds required to assemble the body.

In the paint shop, a complete transformation was necessary to adapt the processes to LCV dimensions. The anti-corrosion treatment tunnel was raised by 70cm and the paint booth extended by 12m.

Resources specific to LCVs were put in place: cradles and conveyor belts to help operators adopt the correct positioning in applying part of the 120m of mastic beading; and interior robots to apply mastic and paint the interior.

Site management placed particular emphasis on developing the skills of operators through extensive training, with 20 days of tuition for each operator prior to starting the job, and the appointment of quality and safety support for personnel with respect to the new installations.
