Renault Master Van
Renault is paying a special deal of attention to its Master Van plan by updating the car with new goodies.
The new changes include CO2 emissions cut by up to 24g/km across Master van range, plus fuel economy gains of up to 3.8 mpg, as well as a boost in specification changes, including the availability of new radios and introduction of air suspension for FWD versions. For enhanced cabin comfort, a selection of new, easier to use and better-equipped radios are now available. Bluetooth and USB connectivity are now standard features across the range, while flagship Sport versions come with a CD player and MP3 playback, as well as a separate display.
As before there are three engine to choose from with 100hp, 125hp and 150hp.
Details in Renault press release:
Air suspension available for front-wheel drive Masters
Optional air suspension is also now available for the vast majority of the front-wheel drive range (panel vans, Chassis Cab, Chassis Double Cab, Platform Cab) at £2,000 excluding VAT, irrespective of engine, with the exception of the 2.8-tonne GVW version. The fitment of air suspension confers several benefits:
- Maintain a constant ride-height irrespective of load and correct differences behind the left- and right-hand sides of the vehicle.
- Permit the vehicle’s ground clearance or rear clearance angle to be raised momentarily.
- Drop the rear suspension to achieve a lower rear sill height (450mm).
- Manually adjust the deck height at the rear by +70mm or -60mm.
Other improvements in brief…
A new option also appears for twin-wheel rear-wheel drive Chassis Cabs in the form of 3.5 tonne towing capacity, priced at £350 excluding VAT. This represents an additional towing capacity of 500kg over the current Master, taking GTW from 6.5 to 7 tonnes.
Facts and figures…
Since its launch, Renault Master has been highly successful, increasing its share of Europe’s large van segment to 15 per cent (end of April). Ever since the introduction of the vehicle’s very first generation in 1980, Renault’s largest product has been assembled at the SOVAB de Batilly plant, France, where the 2,356 staff also produce the Opel/Vauxhall Movano and Nissan NV400.
