The Renault Trafic van lies on the cutting edge, where service and style meet. It is obvious to see that the designers behind the Traffic had in mind an owner-operator: someone with the proper appreciation of superb engineering and creature comfort, who has the fortitude to roll up their sleeves and jump right in.
The driver enjoys a number of standard features that would be optional extras for any other manufacturer. While this is not so obvious when it comes to the height adjustable driver seat, depth adjustable steering wheel or even the power steering, it shows in the full manual air-conditioning system, the MP3 enabled CD player and the remote central locking. But, since understatement is not Renault’s way, the difference becomes glaringly obvious when one takes into account the on-board trip computer, the one touch power windows , power mirrors and parking sensors.
In the case of the intrepid business owner and entrepreneur, the precious cargo is not limited to whatever happens to be in the (1,200kg able) load space but also behind the wheel. The Renault Traffic comes complete with a driver’s airbag and side impact bars, not to mention standard ABS and added Electronic Brake-force Distribution system. But if push comes to shove, you can take comfort in Renault’s 24 hour Roadside Assistance service, who’ll come to you in an emergency, wherever you are.
The Traffic is fit for any kind of undertaking, sporting side anchorage points and a variety of extras to suit your needs, such as a roof rack and steel ladder. The left side sliding door and rear doors that are able to open to 180 degrees give complete access and provide ease of loading and unloading.
To top it all off, the Renault Traffic won’t grid-lock your wallet. The 1.9 litre diesel engine is a true workhorse, pulling up to 240Nm of torque at 2000rpm and reaching up to 74kW of power at just 3500rpm. Despite which, it has a rather economic fuel efficiency, able to average 6.9 litres per 100km.
Plus, you get the extra added satisfaction of arriving in a sexy Renault instead of a run-of-the-mill delivery- or commercial vehicle. Don’t skimp on your business. Don’t skimp on your business image. Take a Renault Traffic for a test drive today and see why your business needs one.
