The Renault Master stands out immediately with a dynamic front-end that showcases distinctive C-shaped lighting. Crafted with an assertive design and chrome styling, the Master is tailored and ideal all for business use.
Our Renault Master review covers:
The new Master has a confident, aggressive stance, with a muscular bonnet, C-shaped LED headlights, and a prominent grille. It's certainly not shy, and it stands out amongst its rivals.
The Master is designed to be the ultimate workhorse, with practicality at its core. Choose from four body lengths, three roof heights, and front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive to perfectly match your needs, whether hauling furniture or delivering parcels. Sliding side doors and barn doors at the back, providing easy access to the load area from both sides.
The Master's boot space is nothing short of cavernous. Up to 13 cubic metres in its largest van configuration which is enough to swallow even the bulkiest loads. Payload capacity of up to 1,420kg take on even the heaviest deliveries with confidence. The Square-shaped load area maximizes the usable space and making it easy to stack boxes or arrange cargo efficiently. Whether you're a courier, builder, or furniture removal expert, the Master's boot space has you covered.
The redesigned Renault Master interior is a major leap forward compared to its predecessor. Ditching the bland and utilitarian vibes, it now offers a driver-focused, comfortable, and surprisingly tech-savvy environment.
As you climb into the cabin, you're greeted by a spacious and airy feel. The high ceiling and large windows provide ample headroom and visibility, perfect for UK roads. The S-shaped dashboard curves around the driver, putting controls within easy reach and creating a sense of personal space.
The new Master strikes a good balance between functionality and comfort. The seats are supportive and adjustable, with some variants offering lumbar support and swivel options. The steering wheel is borrowed from Renault's passenger car range, providing a more comfortable grip and better adjustability.
The Master embraces technology with a centrally mounted 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system as standard. It features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, built-in sat nav, and even voice control. Additional features like rear-view camera and blind-spot monitoring enhance safety and convenience.
Two trim levels are available: Standard and Advance.
Get the essentials for business with the Standard trim. Cruise to your tunes with the DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity, and USB port. Navigate effortlessly with automatic headlights and wipers. Stay comfortable behind the wheel with a height-adjustable driver's seat, lumbar support, and armrest. Adjust the steering wheel height for your perfect driving position. Power front windows and an overhead parcel shelf keep things practical. The Kaleido dark grey upholstery adds a touch of style. Outside, heated, electrically adjustable door mirrors and 16-inch steel wheels with small stylers round out the package.
Take your workday to the next level with the Advance trim. Standard features are joined by manual air conditioning for perfect cabin comfort, pollen filters for cleaner air, and one-touch driver's window control. Upgrade to a fully adjustable suspension driver's seat for tailored comfort. Transform the passenger seat into a mobile office with the pivoting seatback table and under-seat storage. Charge devices on the go with the 12V power socket in the load area. The Advance boasts larger wheel stylers on its 16-inch steel wheels. Enhance safety and confidence with the wide-view mirror and rear parking sensors.
The new Renault Master isn't just about practicality, it also packs a punch when it comes to power and performance. The Master offers a range of powerful and efficient turbo-diesel engines, catering to diverse driving demands. The 128bhp engine: ideal for city deliveries and lighter loads. The 148bhp engine: the sweet spot for most users, offering a good balance of power and economy. The 178bhp engine: for those who need serious muscle, perfect for towing or hauling heavy cargo. All engines are paired with smooth-shifting six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmissions, giving you optimal control and performance.
Despite its size, the Master surprises with its agility. The responsive steering and well-balanced suspension make it easy to manoeuvre around tight city streets and navigate country roads with confidence. The powerful engines provide ample torque, allowing you to accelerate smoothly even when fully loaded.
The Master is designed to handle anything the UK roads throw at it. The robust chassis and high-grip tires provide excellent stability, even on uneven surfaces. The optional hydraulic dynamic braking system adds further control and braking power for steep descents or heavy loads.
Overall, the new Renault Master delivers a potent blend of power, performance, and efficiency. Whether you're a courier zipping through city streets or a haulier tackling rural deliveries, the Master is a great leasing option.
