The interior layout, fit and finish
Storage, storage and more storage. The Renault Master is blessed with an abundance of places to put stuff. From the enormous glovebox to the large door pockets, an overhead shelf that could likely store a bag and under-seat storage that definitely can store one, the Master has it all.
This latest version of the van also combines that practicality with an interior that looks smart and coherent, where the outgoing model felt a little dowdy and illogical. Take the navigation screen, for example: it now blends nicely into the centre of the dash, while the overhead storage compartments in the main dash all get lids in top-spec trim.
The central seat also folds down to reveal cupholders and trays and there’s a rotating section designed for laptops, which means you don’t have to balance it half on or off anywhere. The overall quality appears to have improved too, which should mean the Master’s cabin stays looking fresher for longer.
The Master is available is two trim levels. Entry-level Business comes with a DAB radio with Bluetooth, automatic headlights and wipers, a fully adjustable driver’s seat, electric and heated door mirrors and an alarm. Business+ adds a touchscreen infotainment system, manual air-conditioning, one-touch driver’s side electric front window, lidded dashboard storage, the folding central seat with under-seat storage as well as an additional 12V power supply in the load area. Rear parking sensors are also fitted along with the Wide View Mirror in the passenger sun visor to help you see at awkward junctions.
