Renault Trafic: A van for all trades

Sponsored by: Renault The venerable Renault Trafic remains a popular option for Aussie businesses, despite still being available in manual form only. (We of course offer an immediate tip o' the hat to those buyers sticking with the manual life!) To demonstrate the Trafic's versatility and capability, Renault tasked CarAdvice with recruiting a group of hard-working load-hauling locals to spend time on the job with the 103SWB variant...

2016 Renault Trafic Review: Long-term report four, farewell

Renault Trafic Comparisons

Van comparison: Hyundai iLoad v Renault Trafic v Volkswagen Transporter

Commercial vans are increasingly proving an important part of the Australian automotive landscape.

There’s a clear sales leader and, surprise, surprise – it’s a Toyota...

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...

2017 Renault Trafic LWB Crew Review

Hi world! It was a couple months from the end of my lease, and I was needing an update for my work car. So with the end of my lease approaching, I started looking and dreaming. The work vehicle had to be robust, safe, fun to drive, comfortable and reliable. I have had four-wheel drive dual-cab utes for the last two leases (a Holden Colorado and a Mazda BT50) but I was growing sick of the sore back and rough lumpy ride out on country roads...

2018 Renault Trafic LWB Crew Lifestyle review

I've owned several vans over the years, as I've worked in the building trade most of my life, and because of this occupation, you get yourself into many different predicaments on a daily basis. I had an older model Mercedes Vito 112CDI – that was very good but ended up with too many kays. I've had two Hyundais which I had nothing but trouble with, but were very comfortable inside...

2018 Renault Trafic SWB review

My partner and I bought the Renault Trafic for our tinting business in regional Victoria so we could travel and be able to cut film out in the back once a false floor was installed. Another bonus is we could fit a mattress in too, which means we can also use the Trafic for personal adventures with our dirt bikes...

2013 Renault Trafic 2.0 dCi LWB review

  Over the last three years, day in and day out, I have been driving my work's 2013 Renault Trafic LWB van. Coming from a Suzuki Swift, the first things I noticed were its extremely high seating position as well as its overall dimensions. Starting off, the biggest thing I noticed was the horrible automatic gearbox...
