Car reviews - Renault - Master - Van range


Renault Australia has rounded out its burgeoning LCV range with the cavernous Master

17 Feb 2012

RENAULT Australia is getting serious about light commercials. It has long reigned as number one in Europe, and the brand sees this market as a key area in its continued growth.

Having recently introduced updated versions of the smaller Kangoo and Trafic, the brand has now launched the big daddy of its LCV line-up – the Master.

According to the French marque, the Master’s key competitors are fellow European-badged vans such as the Volkswagen Crafter and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, a well as the venerable Ford Transit.

The question is, can it match up?
Model release date: 1 February 2012 to 1 January 2015

Released: August 2004

Family Tree: Master

THE second-generation Renault Master made its local debut in August 2004 - two years after the brand resurfaced Down Under.

It was available at launch in three body lengths (SWB, MWB and LWB), two roof heights and a cab chassis form ideal as a base for campervans.

Power came from a 2.5-litre common-rail turbo-deisel with 88kW and 300Nm of torque, matched to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed Quickshift robotised manual.

Despite it raging success on the European mainland, the Master was consistantly beaten by its rivals in the Australian sales charts.
