At the very heart of the Renault Master it’s efficient and practical and this is what makes it one of the most popular vans on the road. The deliveries of the award winning 2019 Renault Master are expected to be September 2019, so in preparation Nationwide Vehicle Contracts has summed up its best bits.
Just like the Renault Trafic, the Master is instantly recognisable thanks to the C-shaped lighting signature and the updated front-end design. The 2019 model also features an elevated bonnet line, vertical front grille and ‘Urban grey’ colour.
What makes this Master different is it offers the best of both worlds, its comfortable and practical. It’s not just the outside that’s had an update, the interior has also been spruced up. The seats have been fitted with long lasting upholstery, perfect for all the day to day wear and tear, so now the cab looks a lot sleeker. The centre section now has a MediaNav Evolution multimedia system navigation screen – compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay – as well as a docking station for digital tablets, and the chrome accents on both air vents and air conditioning buttons.

There’s also unrivalled load space for all your equipment and tools, so much so there’s a load volume of up to 17-m3, and to make the loading and offloading process even easier there’s also large open or closed storage areas.
To keep you safe while you’re on the road, the Master is jam packed with safety features – from lane departure warning to blind spot warning and the optional Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS). Not to forget the additional ADAS functions that are available, they not only increase safety but also maneuverability.

Additionally, to keep you safe during strong winds there’s Side Wind Assist. It provides stability assistance in the event of side winds and is activated over 45-mph and can correct up to 50-% of the vehicle’s lateral deflection in extreme conditions. There’s also a wide view mirror positioned in the centre of the passenger’s sun visor to increase the drivers rear visibility.

However, depending on the version, fuel consumption is reduced up to 1 L/100-km (NEDC back-translated values). Pair this with either a six-speed manual gearbox or six-speed automatic gearbox and a fuel economy of up to 40.4-mpg is achieved – helping you spend less on fuel. Finally, for your complete peace of mind, the engines comply with Euro 6d-TEMP/Euro VI standards.
Whatever your budget and your needs there’s a Master for you, in fact there’s an incredible 99 different versions in total. Depending on the version, the Masters can be split into two trim levels, Business and Business+ – offering a plethora of vans varying in a choice of lengths and engines.
