Renault’s light commercial vehicle range is now available with 'added traction' in overseas markets, and the local arm is considering the options for Australia.

The Kangoo and Trafic vans can now be had with ‘X-Track’ 4X2 technology, which improves traction for customers who operate their vehicles in rugged conditions.

The large Master van is also available with X-Track, but the Master goes one-up on its smaller siblings by offering customers the chance to go the whole hog with all-wheel-drive.

Renault Australia noted the suitability of the new traction-improving options for the local market, saying the new features are under consideration for the options list for local customers.

“When it comes to traction performance, the needs of business customers can vary significantly depending on the terrain, conditions, type of work and payload,” Renault Australia’s Lyndon Healey said.

“Compared with a standard transmission, the new Renault X-Track 4x2 technology delivers superior mobility on difficult terrain, in snow, unsealed surfaces and on poor quality roads.”

Mr Lyndon said X-Track offered a suitable alternative to AWD when off-road capability was not required, as the new feature improves vehicle performance on poor road surfaces and in poor weather.

The Master’s AWD system would be switchable, with the driver able to choose between rear- or all-wheel -drive to suit the conditions.

Renault says the AWD mode helps the Master tackle inclines, slippery ground, unsealed surfaces, damp fields, muddy ground and poor roads.

The AWD option is available overseas on Master cab-chassis, single- and dual-cab models, along with Master vans.
