Renault Trafic video review
The Renault Trafic was a styling revolution for vans when it arrived back in 2001, here's our video review
The range is pretty simple - it comes in six different body combinations with short and long wheelbase versions available with low or high roofs.
It's as practical as even the most modern vans and through the side door you can fit the standard Euro Pallet. There's also a full-length metal bulkhead which keeps sound down at high speeds.
Payload range is pretty impressive and starts from 926kg to 1248kg. Intrusive wheel arches are telling of its age, however, and do intrude on the space. Another area where the Renault Traffic falls behind its competitors is with the interior - it's starting to look a bit dated, and nowhere near as impressive as the Ford Transit Custom's. While storage is reasonable, you don't get roof bins or a lockable glovebox, either.
The driving position is pretty good and you do get height adjustment for the driver's seat. You can alter the steering wheel for reach, but not for height. The entry-level Debut model is extremely basic, while mid-level core version gets electric windows, remote central locking and the sport model has alloy wheels, fog lamps, USB for the stereo and a sat-nav.
Overall, the Renault Trafic is competitively priced, comes with a four year warranty with roadside breakdown assistance and it's a great drive. On the downside, there are some reliability issues and the cabin does feel a little dated. Watch the video review and see what you think.
