Renault Trafic - a stylish minivan with a commercial vein
The concept of Trafic, as is known, means transportation,and in the case of a minivan from Renault, of course, it's about commercial transportation. The first associations that come to mind when looking at the car - style, comfort and reliability, while Trafic equally well cope with the delivery of goods, and with the transport of passengers (version of the Renault Trafic Passenger).
The history of this car began back in 1981year, when the first machine came off the assembly line. During this time, its design has undergone a number of changes in design and technical equipment, however, for car owners, it still remains a model of reliability and comfort.
The first thing that catches your eye when landing inRenault Trafic - the height of the car. It seems that he is too tall, the hand, when climbing into the cabin, involuntarily seeks support. He is looking, and does not find. However, for the driver this fact is even on hand, because the visibility of the car is what you need. Directly behind the wheel and in the passenger areas is comfortable. The seat is adjustable in height, the steering wheel - alas, no. It is quite convenient ergonomics Reno Trafic. Management of music, power windows, climate control - all at your fingertips, but at the same time it does not distract and does not cut your eyes. Along the torpedo there is a black visor, which prevents the objects burning on the same torpedo from burning out in the sun, and does not reflect these objects on the windshield.
As for the salon, it is almost perfect. Six passengers will sit down with a large stock for the legs and other parts of the body. Here, however, the individuality of each seat is emphasized.In salon Renault Trafic ownclimate system, separate lighting of each row, armrests, coasters, pockets for things and other convenient devices. By the way, the passenger door is blocked automatically during the ride, which is very important from the point of view of safety. Each seat is equipped with three-point seat belts.
Baggage compartment car to match the salon -large and comfortable. The floor is low, which is important for loading bulky heavy things. In addition, if necessary, it is possible to make it even more due to the folding rear seats.
General impressions of the interior are positive. Yes, the eyes do not cut the best finishing materials, but they are conscientious, firmly fixed, there are no backlashes, and the material itself is pleasant to the touch. At the height and sound insulation - even at high speed in the cabin does not have to raise the voice.
Go. First impressions are pleasantly unexpected. Renault Trafic has an extremely small turning radius, as well as a great sense of size, which is important for parking a car of this class in an urban environment. At the same time the car, as for its dimensions, has a rather long wheelbase, thanks to which it goes smoothly and smoothly. The reverse side of the coin of such a smooth ride is the increased likelihood of motion sickness of passengers with a weak vestibular apparatus. Trafic easily overcomes small hillocks in the form of joints and recumbent policemen, which can not be said about pits, from which a loaded car is slightly more difficult to pick out than to other representatives of the class.
The car is equipped with a two-liter engine (120 hp).), while the car is quite heavy for its size, and therefore, the transfer will have to switch more often. The designers took this moment into account and even the most loaded car on the hill, starting from the spot, climbs without problems. The box itself is six-speed. As for fuel consumption, it is within the limits of: 11 liters - in urban mode, 8 - outside the city and 9-10 - in a mixed cycle, which is quite economical.
Conclusions suggest themselves. Renault Trafic - convenient, practical and economical. Even the resulting deficiencies to those concern only with a stretch, and against the background of the merits of the car and does not play any role.
