Trafic Phase III

1 Mar 2011

The Trafic Phase III got a passenger airbag to go with the driver-side unit as well as the added option of electronic stability control (on manual variants only).

Inside was a restyled dashboard with a new trip computer and radio as well as a new steering wheel with audio controls, Bluetooth connectivity and cosmetic changes including new chrome-ringed gauges and freshened charcoal colour scheme.

Seating capacity officially increased from two to three by adopting a narrow bench alongside the driver’s seat in place of the previous passenger bucket seat.

The 2.0-litre dCi common rail turbo-diesel engine carried over from the previous Trafic and was mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed ‘Quickshift’ semi-automatic transmission.

The Euro IV-compliant engine produced 85kW at 3500rpm and 290Nm at 1600rpm, and combined fuel consumption on the manual was a claimed 8.3L/100km (or 8.0L/100km for the auto).
