Get the midlevel SE trim. The SE has a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be worried about a stiff ride, although SE remains relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also a good bargain considering all of the safety and tech equipment you obtain for the money. Finally, the SE can be acquired with a wide range of options, to help you pick and choose those are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs might be all the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Renault Trafic. Coming off a redesign just a year ago, the 2020 Renault Trafic is really a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with lots of standard safety equipment and lots of options to choose from.
As has been the case for a while, you will get the 2020 Renault Trafic with a four-cylinder engine or even a more powerful V6, or you can get the miserly 2020 Renault Trafic Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Renault Trafic is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Renault Trafic also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Renault Trafic with a little extra personality. Inside, the 2020 Renault Trafic offers a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you opt for one of the upper trim levels. There are lots of options to pick from across the way.
The 2020 Renault Trafic can be as competent while they come. It’s well-priced on the whole, and modern feature content causes it to be supremely an easy task to drive. If you’re looking for something with much more class and space when compared to a small sedan, the 2020 Renault Trafic might just be the sedan for you.
The 2020 Renault Trafic is the beds base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features that features 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Renault Trafic Safety Sense, which is really a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features located on the upper trim levels can be put into the low trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL sound system along with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 Renault Trafic stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is simple to fold down to match longer items. You will find enough cabin storage options to produce most people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but has a hard, slippery floor, so they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Renault Trafic has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles make it an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s very easy to mount a car seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough room so that the front seat will not need to be scooted all the way forward.
