Ford Transit Custom v Renault Trafic: Medium van comparison

It’s the battle of the European mid-sized vans – both are white, both are diesel, both are manual and both are just under $40,000. They are the all-new Renault Trafic and the Ford Transit Custom, the latter of which won our mid-sized van comparison test in 2014. The old Trafic was impressive in that test, and ranked second even though that model was considerably more, shall we say, vintage than its rivals...

2015 Renault Trafic : No automatic gearbox option in sight

The 2015 Renault Trafic doesn’t come with an automatic gearbox option - and that could be a problem, as the brand’s local arm says this transmission type has accounted for about two out of every five sales in the past. The previous-generation Renault Trafic was available with a six-speed manual or six-speed robotized manual (automatic) transmission, but the new version – which comes with the option of a single-turbo or a twin-turbo 1...
