The Renault Master comes with a three-year unlimited-kilometre warranty, and is offered with a roadside assistance program that can now be extended to four years.

As before, the Renault Master is offered in three heights and four lengths, and comes in a number of body types including van, bus and cab chassis.

The van is exclusively powered by a 2.3-litre turbo-diesel engine which delivers 120kW when matched with a six-speed manual transmission, or 110kW with the automatic.
