The Renault Trafic is the brand's medium-sized van, sitting above the smaller Kangoo but beneath the larger Master.

Like many vans on the market, the Renault Trafic shares its foundations with another van. In this instance, that van is the Vauxhall Vivaro.

This generation has been around from 2014, with a facelift occurring in 2022.

If you're after a decent, straight-forward van that's had a dependable and successful stint on the market, then the Trafic offers the basics well, along with other highlights mentioned below.

  • Neat design
  • Longest load length in class
  • Easy to drive
  • Decent economy
  • Comfortable

Economy, Towing, and Performance

As a medium van, the Trafic offers decent fuel economy. There's the option of a few diesel engines usually seen in the 1.6-litre guise, with later models opting for a 2.0-litre unit.

These engines will return around 40mpg (WLTP) usually, whilst some can return circa 50mpg depending on exact model and load being carried.

If you're wanting a Trafic for towing purposes, maximum towing capacity is 750kg for unbraked trailers, whilst up to 2,500kg for braked trailers, depending on the variant.

As for overall performance, the engines have been produced for a while now. These offer dependable driving, and the torque helps when carrying heavier loads or towing via a trailer.

Bodystyles, Payload, and Capacity

Load Space of a Yellow Renault Trafic Van

As for bodystyles, it's pretty simple when looking to buy a used Trafic. There are two roof heights and two load lengths, which equal four possible versions.

Payloads therefore depend on the bodystyle of the used Renault Trafic you're looking at, and will vary between 1,166kg and 1,280kg.

This is the same for capacity, with loading lengths of 2,537mm or 2937mm, along with loading heights of 1,387mm and 1,898mm. All widths are 1,662mm.

When looking for a used Trafic, be sure to double-check if you're using the van for a specific loading purpose, as many will be similar, but some will be slightly more practical than others.

Interior, Technology, and Safety

Interior of a Renault Trafic Van

Interior quality of the Trafic is good with typical Renault style, which sets it apart from the Vauxhall Vivaro it shares DNA with.

The 2022 update lifts the interior further, but older models still offer decent functionality despite the lack of style van interiors are perhaps known for.

Later models are the best bet if you want better kit as standard. 2022 Start (entry-level) models come with a smart 3.5-inch infotainment screen with DAB, Bluetooth etc, heated door mirrors and even an alarm and immobiliser.

There has been a few safety recalls on early models from 2014 onwards, but later models are much better for their safety, with the following kit available with certain specs from 2022:

  • Traffic sign recognition
  • Blindspot warning
  • Active emergency braking
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • LED headlights

Is the Renault Trafic right for me?

If you're after a fairly decent medium-sized van, then the Renault Trafic is a good choice in this particular sector.

The Vauxhall Vivaro is essentially the same, although the Renault has a touch more style due to its French DNA. The Ford Transit Custom however is the most popular in this segment and is worth looking at in your shortlist.
