Renault Trafic - best medium panel vans

The Renault Trafic delivers the goods with a big load area and efficient engines

The Trafic is a proper old-school, no-nonsense van, but even Renault is adding the latest tech to its workhorse. Like rivals, you can get long and short wheelbase versions, while the Trafic Passenger and Trafic Crew Van offer versatility, too. Renault also offers a range of ready-made conversions for businesses that need a specialist vehicle at short notice.

One great thing about the Trafic is its high-set driving position. With a commanding view of the road ahead, it offers one of the tallest seat heights of any van in the class. Add in the large rear-view mirrors and clever blind spot mirror set into the passenger side sun visor, and visibility isn't an issue in this van.

There are Business Edition and Sport variants of the Trafic, and you can even order one in lime green to really stand out from the crowd.

Under the bonnet, there are 1.6 dCi engines, although an update in 2019 sees a new range of 2.0-litre dCi diesels used instead. While the Kangoo and Master have spawned electric ZE variants, the Trafic ZE is still in development.
