The French automaker is taking advantage of its partnership with the anniversary 70th Cannes International Film Festival and presented during the event the new flagship version of the Trafic for Europe – the SpaceClass.
The manufacturer is trying to reposition the people-carrier at the tip of “the high-end shuttle market,” with “space and comfort” for up to nine passengers and probably looking at the similar offerings from brand such as Mercedes-Benz from an equal stance now. The van actually has up to 50 seat configurations thanks to the modular design of the second and third row and passengers also get perks such as tinted rear windows, regulated air conditioning, individual LED reading lamps, and exclusive leather upholstery depending on the chosen model. The pivoting seats can morph the van into a mobile office, which comes with 220-volt and USB sockets for charging laptops and electronic devices.
The driver also gets the “highest levels of luxury” thanks to the leather-covered steering wheel, numerous storage bins, as well as chrome and gloss-black inserts. The dashboard includes the MediaNav infotainment or R-Link with Android Auto and seven-inch touchscreen. Renault comments the new luxury van has been developed for “professional customers placing a premium on the comfort of all passengers regardless of journey times” and best suits “companies and hotels operating shuttles from train stations and airports.”
