Renault Trafic

The Renault Trafic is a long-running commercial van that first hit Europe in 1980, but later saw the Australian market in 2004.

Rivalling the Ford Transit, Volkswagen Transporter, Mercedes-Benz Vito, and Hyundai iLoad, the Renault Trafic offers both short and long-wheelbases - all of which are exclusively offered with a turbo-diesel engine.

Drivetrain options are reserved for the transmission, which can be had as a six-speed manual.

Prices for the Renault Traffic range from $36,490 to $52,490 for the Trafic L1 SWB PRO (85kW) and Trafic L2 LWB CREW LIFESTYLE (125kW), respectively.

As the Renault Trafic is sold around the world, it can also be sold as the Opel Vivaro, Vauxhall Vivaro, Fiat Talento, and Nissan NV300.

 

Renault Trafic Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Renault Trafic here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Can the clutch wear out on a Renualt Trafic if the hydraulic robot control unit is faulty?

    Clutches are deemed wear and tear items, which is why they wouldn’t cover the replacement cost. While 80,000 km is not a lot of kilometres for a clutch replacement it is getting near the kilometres that you would anticipate it. The two things shouldn’t be related, I would guess that they saw the clutch was nearly worn-out and it was deemed best to replace it now.

  • Disco dilemma

    SOUNDS like you need a van. The European vans are way ahead of the Japanese rivals in every aspect except price. They can be tricked up with all sorts of accessories that can look very cool. The Vito is worth considering, as are the VW Transporter and the Renault Trafic. If you can get away with a smaller van, look at the VW Caddy. The Japanese vans don't rate highly in crash testing, but the European vans have all the safety systems you'd expect in a passenger car.

  • A wheelchair conversion

    IT'S really too early to speculate on the reliability of the present-model vans. I would be surprised if you needed a van as big as the Sprinter or Ducato to transport your 13-year-old daughter. I would take a look at the Vito, Transporter and Trafic before the Transit. The latter has a pretty ordinary reputation for reliability. Have a talk to the people at Capital Special Vehicles, who specialise in doing the conversions.

Renault Trafic Interior

When the Renault Trafic launched in Australia, it set a benchmark for the interior design of a commercial van. That was a few years ago, and things have moved on, but it still has a neat dashboard layout with an optional touchscreen on all but the top model, and the trim quality is hardy, but not cheap feeling. Forget leather, but it's a tough and rugged cabin with plenty of smart storage options as you'll see in these images.
