Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
Renault hasn't altered any of the vital bits about the latest Trafic van. The overall length remains 4998mm and 5398mm for standard and long-wheelbase models respectively, while the internal storage lengths range from 2537mm to 2937mm.
For longer loads, there is a load-through bulkhead that extends maximum carrying length in short-wheelbase models from 2537mm to 3750mm, and from 2937mm to 4150mm in long-wheelbase variants.
Load volumes peak at 8.6 cubic metres – slightly more than the biggest Transit Custom, which can carry 8.3 cubic metres, while maximum payload is 1075kg in 2.8-tonne short-wheelbase models and 1280kg in three-tonne gross vehicle weight vans. A passenger-side door is fitted as standard and the rear doors open to 180deg.
Enhancements made to the rear include brighter LED lights and a reinforced lock. The loading area lining has also been changed to enable better cleaning and has the option of 255deg 'fold-flat' doors – ones that go all the way around to the side of the van.
