Renault Australia has today announced availability of the Phase III updated-for-2011 Trafic van, bringing a passenger airbag and a new double bench seat.
The Phase III Trafic gets a number of other interior updates, including a restyled dashboard and instrument cluster. Illumination in the instrument cluster is enhanced, chrome rings have been added to the gauges, and cruise-control settings are now displayed in the multifunction display.
There's a new steering wheel, adding integrated cruise-control buttons, and the centre stack features a new audio system with CD/MP3 playback, aux/Bluetooth connectivity and four 20W speakers.
The updated dashboard features new light and dark charcoal colour schemes. There is also a new storage space on top for an A4-sized clipboard or documents.
On the optional extras front, there's a TomTom satellite navigation system with a remote control that clips into the storage cubby when not in use.
Other options include climate control (with further optional additional heating), automatic lights and wipers, a full-steel bulkhead, a glazed bulkhead, driver rear cabin protection mesh, glazed tailgate, right-hand sliding door with opening window, front fog lamps, body coloured bumper, 16-inch alloy wheels and rear parking sensors.
