2012 Renault Master Van range Car Review


RENAULT Australia is getting serious about light commercials.

It has long reigned as number one in Europe, and the brand sees this market as a key area in its continued growth.

Having recently introduced updated versions of the smaller Kangoo and Trafic, the brand has now launched the big daddy of its LCV line-up – the Master.

According to the French marque, the Master’s key competitors are fellow European-badged vans such as the Volkswagen Crafter and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, a well as the venerable Ford Transit.

The question is, can it match up?

THE second-generation Renault Master made its local debut in August 2004 - two years after the brand resurfaced Down Under.

It was available at launch in three body lengths (SWB, MWB and LWB), two roof heights and a cab chassis form ideal as a base for campervans.

Power came from a 2.5-litre common-rail turbo-deisel with 88kW and 300Nm of torque, matched to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed Quickshift robotised manual.

Despite it raging success on the European mainland, the Master was consistantly beaten by its rivals in the Australian sales charts.
