Renault Van Leasing
Renault offers a wide LCV range, with the compact Kangoo, the mid-sized Trafic and the large Master. The brand also offers a pick-up, the Alaskan, which offers gutsy 2.3-litre dCi diesel power. City-based business will want to look at the Kangoo. Whether you go for this model in standard form or in lengthened Maxi guise, the engine choice is pretty simple, nearly all buyers choosing a 1.5-litre dCi common rail diesel unit offered in 75, 90 or 110bhp forms. There’s also a fully-electric ZE version, offered with both bodystyles.
If you want a mid-sized Renault van, you’ll want a Trafic. This panel van is offered in two lengths. The standard L1 configuration measures 4,998mm from stem to stern, with the L2 breaking the tape at 5,398mm. There are also two roof heights to choose from. Compared to its predecessor, you get an extra 100mm interior load length and cargo capacity ranges between 5.2 and 8.6 cubic metres. Renault has also been smart about accommodating even longer loads too, with a flap that extends through the bulkhead and below the front seats to allow up to 2.95m long items.
Finally, if you want a really big Renault van, you’ll want a Master model. There's an absolutely dizzying array of variants with more than 120 different models available, with carrying capacities extending from 8 to 22 cubic metres. As well as panel vans, there are people carriers, buses, chassis cabs and twin-cab chassis, platform cabs, crew vans and tippers. The Master is offered in four lengths, three wheelbases and with two different rear overhangs. Front and rear-wheel drive is available, with the rear-wheel drive chassis sold with single or twin rear wheels. Then there are four gross vehicle weights: 2.8 tonnes, 3.3 tonnes, 3.5 tonnes (with single or twin rear wheels) and 4.5 tonnes (with twin rear wheels). Power comes from a choice of four dCi diesel engines.
