Australia’s Renault Trafic range has seen the addition of a striking new special model: the 2017 Renault Trafic Formula Edition.
Designed to highlight the brand’s experience in formula one racing, the new motorsport-inspired cargo van has a few design highlights that set it apart from the regular models in the range.
The Trafic Formula Edition is limited to 80 units, with the choice of either Jet Black or Storm Grey paint – but the bits that stand out most are the Renault Sport yellow highlights on the wheel-caps on the black 17-inch wheels, upper and lower grille inserts, fog lamp surrounds, and those eye-catching ‘Formula Edition’ stripes.
It features a colour coding for the front bumper, tail-light surrounds and door rail, and there’s a black Renault diamond badge.
The interior (no pics available) has dark cloth upholstery with a heated driver’s seat, a 7.0-inch media screen with navigation, gloss black air-vent surrounds, a leather-trimmed gear selector with chrome-plated trim, chrome speaker surrounds, LED overhead lights, and ‘Formula Edition’ floor mats.
It’s available in short- and long-wheelbase (SWB and LWB) variants, with the standard 1.6-litre twin-turbo diesel engine and six-speed manual gearbox (not the upgraded single-turbo unit in the base model Trafic).
The list price for the SWB is $41,990 plus on-road costs and the LWB is listed at $43,490 – but ABN holders are set to benefit from drive-away deals until the end of financial year: the SWB at $41,490 and the LWB at $42,990.
