- The accompanying text includes a mention of the 40th anniversary. Carscoops notes that the Renault Trafic family marks 40 years since its inception this year. In addition, the details of the front lining, which can be seen in the video, according to the publication, resemble the outlines of test prototypes of the model seen by photo spies.
Whether we are talking about a complete change of generations or another restyling is not yet clear. In the latter case, updating the family is likely to be limited to the revision of the "face" of the van and the modernization of the interior. According to preliminary data, Renault may also revise the Trafic engine range, including hybrid power plants. The date of the premiere of the novelty has also not yet been announced.
- In Europe, the current Renault Trafic is equipped with a two-liter diesel engine in three output variants - 120 hp. (320 Nm), 146 hp (350 Nm) and 170 hp. (380 Nm). The price of a cargo van modification starts at 26,900 euros (31.3 thousand dollars or 2.52 million rubles).
- In Russia, the commercial line of Renault is represented only by the larger Master van at a price of 1,965,000 rubles.
