Renault announce specs and pricing for new Master van
Renault have released full specifications and pricing for the new panel and crew van versions of the new Master.
Following its global debut earlier in April at this year’s CV Show in Birmingham, orders for the next-gen Master began last month, with deliveries estimated to start later in the year.
The new Master is available in two trim levels, the entry-level Business and the Business+. There’s more than 120 different combinations available with a choice of four lengths and three heights in panel van, crew cab, platform cab and many more variants, meaning there’s a Master to meet every individual need.
Pricing for the new vans start at £26,229 on the road for the basic Business model, and deliveries are expected to begin from September.
Equipment and features
A range of new equipment and features for the new Master are included as standard, giving the new generation of the van a significant leg up over its predecessor.
Core features for the Business model include a height adjustable driver’s seat, left side loading door, electric windows and door mirrors, a full steel bulkhead, as well as remote central locking.
The Business also includes electronic stability control with hill start assist functions and Grip Xtend, an advanced traction control system, as well as DAB digital radio with USB and Bluetooth connectivity as standard.
Business+, the Master’s higher level trim, adds air-con, a clipboard holder, hands-free keys, extra storage space, as well as a wide view mirror and rear parking sensors.
The facelifted Master also comes with a range of additional options, including cruise control and climate control, TomTom SatNav and air suspension along with front fog lights and cornering lights.
Five options packs are available as well, which group three or more of the additional equipment pieces together. The Driving Pack adds air conditioning, one-touch electric windows, cruise control and a speed limiter. Meanwhile, the Executive Pack offers air conditioning, front fog lights, cruise control and a pivoting seatback table.
Finally, the Loading Pack adds a side loading door on the right side, rear doors that open 270 degrees and ply lining, while the Style Pack offers 16-inch alloy wheels and front fog lights.
The new Master is powered by a choice of five 2.3-litre diesel engines, including three versions of Renault’s Energy engine, each of which comes with a six-speed manual transmission or the Quickshift6 automatic gearbox.
Two basic variants of the diesel engines come in 108bhp and 123bhp outputs, while the dCi 110, dCi 135 and dCi 165 make up the three Energy variations. The dCi 135 and dCi 165 both come with Twin Turbo technology, which offers greater power in addition to greater efficiency, with fuel consumption for the two engines sitting at just over 40mpg with 180g/km of CO2 emissions.
Each new Master is available in a choice of ten body colours, including three metallic shades. Additionally, Renault have forged a partnership with vehicle storage specialist Bri-Stor, who are offering two types of optional storage racking for Renault’s van range, further increasing the customisability and versatility of the new Master range.
