Renault has facelifted the passenger transport versions of the Trafic, known as Passenger and SpaceClass.
The new models feature a revised look and new interior, with updated technology.
Aimed at large families and professionals in passenger transport, the Trafic Passenger can carry up to nine people and has an increased luggage capacity.
The Trafic SpaceClass, meanwhile, has been designed for drivers and passengers that demand a higher level of comfort. It has an eight-seat layout and is suited to businesses wanting to transport VIPs in luxury and comfort.
Both models feature a new horizontal bonnet design and vertical grille, plus new bumpers and full LED headlights.
The all-new dashboard features a horizontal strip that blends into the door panels, giving a wraparound look and an even more spacious feel. There’s also a new gear lever design, plus the air conditioning controls are embellished with chrome trim for a more upmarket feel.
Practicality is enhanced with the inclusion of even more storage spaces. Overall, the interior houses 84 litres of handy storage solutions. As before, the boot delivers up to 1,800-litres of carrying capacity.
Significant changes have been made to the technological and connected features of the new Trafic Passenger and SpaceClass, with both benefiting from Renault’s latest infotainment system.
The new eight-inch touchscreen brings enhanced levels of connectivity and usability, including full smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Satnav is also standard, while the option of a wireless smartphone charger is now offered.
Semi-autonomous driving aids, such as adaptive cruise control and Active Emergency Braking System (AEBS) also feature, along with 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 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.
The new vehicles are available with three versions of Renault’s 2.0-litre diesel engine, with 110PS, 150PS or 170PS. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard on dCi 110 and dCi 150 models, while six-speed EDC dual-clutch automatic transmission features on both the dCi 170 and dCi 150.
Full details and prices of new Trafic passenger transport range will be unveiled in early 2021.
