New 2019 Renault Master: UK prices and specs confirmed

Updated Renault Master panel van gets new look, engines and technology. Prices start from £26,350 excluding VAT

Renault Vans has confirmed prices for the latest version of its big-selling Renault Master large van. A front-wheel drive SL28 model powered by a dCi 135 engine in Business trim costs from £26,350 excluding VAT, with the range rising to £57,300 for the top-spec zero-emission electric model. 

The latest Master benefits from a new look up front, more efficient engines and improved on board technology for drivers.

Styling changes include a new nose design with C-shaped daytime running lights, similar to those found on the Megane hatch. Also added are a new upright grille and bonnet line with extra chrome trim, while Renault will offer a grey paint option as an alternative to the standard white.

Inside, the cabin has been overhauled to incorporate design touches from the passenger car line-up, while the position of the multimedia screen has been moved down to the dashboard, compared to the current van's screen which is located where the rear-view mirror would normally sit. There's more storage, including additional lidded storage and a pull-out tray within the dash above the glovebox (although this feature will not make it to RHD models), while wireless phone charging is also available.

In terms of kit, there's a full range of infotainment systems on offer, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while new safety tech includes Rear-View Assist, which uses a camera mounted above the back doors to project a view of the road behind on a screen in place of a rear-view mirror. Also included is Side Wind Assist for improved stability in high winds, front park assist and blind spot warning, while autonomous city braking and motorway brake assist is available on the options list.

Under the bonnet, a new-generation of 2.3 dCi twin-turbo diesel appears, with power of up to 178bhp and torque of up to 400Nm. These engines are fully emissions compliant thanks to SCR emissions reduction, while six-speed manual and auto gearboxes are offered. As before, the all-electric Master ZE is also available, with a 75bhp electric motor and a driving range of up to 120 miles.

The cargo area remains largely unchanged, so payload and cubic volumes will be similar to before, but Renault has added new LED lighting and grab handles to boost access. As before, there will be a panel van in four lengths and three heights, chassis cab, low-loader and crew cab variants on offer, while Renault Pro+ dealers will offer off-the-shelf conversions as it does now.

A range of additional driver assistance systems (ADAS) are designed to improve both manoeuvring and safety. Rear view Assist consists of a camera that gives the driver medium to long-distance visibility behind. The image is displayed in a screen on the upper part of the windscreen. Side Wind Assist is activated over 45mph, and can correct up to 50 per cent of the vehicles sidewasy movement in gusty conditions. Other safety features available to Master include Front parking assistance, Blind Spot Warning and Advanced Emergency Braking System.

The new Master is available to order now, with first deliveries due in September.
