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...

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. Vans of all sizes – small, medium and large – saw sales increases in 2015, and it’s that middle segment that takes up the majority of sales. 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...

Renault Australia: Trafic auto still 12 to 18 months away

There's something holding the Renault Trafic back in Australia. No matter how sharply it's marketed, or how well it's priced, buyers want automatics, and the French brand doesn't offer one Down Under. Even tradies are avoiding three-pedal cars like the proverbial locally. Manual vans make up just 30 per cent of the market in which the Trafic competes, making its nine per cent segment share impressive...

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...

2012 RENAULT TRAFIC 2.0 dCi SWB Review

Bought my new MWB Master mid last year. Am absolutely delighted with it. It goes really well. Good power. It is brilliant to drive. Hasn't missed a beat. Have taken it on 3 interstate trips and it is as good to drive as a car. Love it. The cup holder set up could be a bit smarter. But that's about all I can fault. Not Bad!
