Renault reveals high-end Trafic

Renault has revealed a premium version of its best-selling Trafic van, aimed at the premium passenger carrying market.

The Trafic Spaceclass is aimed at customers specialising in business, airport and event transfers, as well as private hire and chauffeur operators – demonstrated by the use of the new van at last month’s Cannes film festival.

“Trafic SpaceClass is an entirely new product that fulfils the requirements of customers looking for a best-in-class driving and comfort experience,” said Ashwani Gupta, Senior Vice President, Global Head of Renault-Nissan Light Commercial Vehicles Business Unit. “We chose the Cannes film festival as the first time to debut this high-end vehicle to show that it can be used effectively with VIPs and business people all the way to the airport.”

With room for up to nine people, the Trafic Spaceclass features seats on rails in rows two and three, enabling over 50 different configurations. Features include leather trim, dark-tinted rear windows, regulated air conditioning, individual LED reading lamps, and 220V and USB sockets for charging laptops and electronic devices.

A chrome grille, gloss black detailing and 17-inch diamond effect alloys complete the look. Sales begin in September, with prices to be announced nearer the time.
