A couple of years on from launch, Renault has announced a series of improvements for its Master van range, including enhanced fuel economy, lower emissions and improved equipment.
The launch of New Master in 2010 saw the introduction of an engine (M9T) developed especially for Renault’s largest van. This 2.3 dCi powerplant, comes in a choice of three power outputs (100hp, 125hp and 150hp) and its fuel consumption has been improved this year by up to 3.8 mpg (SL/SM dCi 125 Quickshift6 Euro 5 versions), with the core-selling dCi 125 up by 3.3 mpg (SL/SM versions).
To achieve these savings, Renault’s engineers focused on an improved water circuit for faster starting, new oil and power steering pumps, low fuel-consumption tyres and new gearbox lubricant.
A selection of new, easier to use and better-equipped radios are now available. Bluetooth and USB connectivity are now standard features across the range, while Sport versions come with a CD player and MP3 playback, as well as a separate display.
Optional air suspension is also now available for the vast majority of the front-wheel drive range (panel vans, Chassis Cab, Chassis Double Cab, Platform Cab) at £2,000 excluding VAT, irrespective of engine, with the exception of the 2.8-tonne GVW version.
A new option also appears for twin-wheel rear-wheel drive Chassis Cabs in the form of 3.5 tonne towing capacity, taking the GTW from 6.5 to 7 tonnes.
