Prices for facelifted 2019 Renault Trafic van announced

Priced from £22,800, the new look Renault Trafic mid-sized panel van gets improved cabin quality

Renault has confirmed prices for the revised Trafic van. The new model will start from £22,800 for the SL28 ENERGY dCi 120 Business Panel Van, climbing up to £37,650.00 for the passenger van model equipped with a 168bhp diesel engine and a dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

The Renault Trafic, one of Europe's top-selling mid-sized vans, is getting an overhaul to keep it competitive in a sector which has seen the Vauxhall Vivaro switch from sharing tech with the Trafic to being based on the Citroen Dispatch and Peugeot Expert.

The revised Trafic gets a subtle new look with styling cues borrowed from the Renault passenger car range, with C-shaped daytime running lights and a new grille design, while top-spec models also benefit from full LED headlamps. Also available is a new 'Urban Grey' matte paint finish.

Inside, there are new hard-wearing yet comfortable fabrics, chrome trim, dark chrome finishers and even the option of carbon fibre-effect finishes. Technology includes Renault's latest R-Link Evolution infotainment with Android Auto, while the Media Nav system also adds Apple CarPlay. There's plenty of storage on board, while the passenger seat folds in multiple directions for added versatility.

In the back, cargo volumes range from 3.2 to 8.6 cubic metres, while bright LED lighting and different door locking options are available for added security. There are also 18 anchor points, a thru-load facility to pass longer items into the cab and fully opening rear doors.

Under the bonnet, power comes from a new 2.0 dCi diesel with 118bhp, 143bhp or 168bhp, with the increase from 1.5 to 2.0-litre capacity designed to help the Trafic more easily meet new emissions legislation. Torque is up to 380Nm, while Renault's EDC twin-clutch auto is available with the most powerful motor. Emissions are reduced with the help of an SCR system, while fuel consumption is claimed to be improved, too.

As well as the Trafic van, Renault has upgraded the Traffic passenger versions, too. The top-spec Space Class gets a plusher cabin with more charging ports dotted around the interior.

The new Renault Trafic is available to order now, with first UK delieveries due in September. And while the Vauxhall Vivaro will no longer share parts with the Trafic, its sister models, the Nissan NV300 and Fiat Talento, will still be produced, and alliance partner Mitsubishi will build its own mid-sized van based on the Trafic.
