With so much choice in the mid-size van segment and four near-identical vehicles from the Renault-Nissan-Vauxhall stable to choose from, picking the right van is a difficult task.
Where the Renault Trafic stands out, however, is with its three-tiered trim levels, allowing customers to have a basic, mid-range or top-spec van. Business+ has a fair level of equipment, making it a good overall proposition, but we’d recommend the Sport version if your budget can stretch, because it includes the highly desirable touchscreen infotainment system. Coupled with the 123bhp engine, it’s a great combination that will suit most needs.
The Trafic is supported by a three-year/ 60,000-mile warranty with unlimited mileage in the first two years, and there are service centres dedicated to Renault vans. For those setting up in business, it also offers a signwriting package for all its vans, allowing you to design your own livery. You can choose between cheap, cheerful set fonts and colours or a bespoke package of paint and graphics, all of which are competitively priced.
Other items to look out for when buying a Trafic are Ready4Work Sortimo racking systems and the advanced dashboard camera, which has an advanced parking mode, lane departure warning system and forward collision warning.
