Renault has introduced the facelifted Master at the 2014 Commercial Vehicle Show in the United Kingdom.
Looking instantly recognizable, the facelifted model adopts a revised grille with a larger Renault emblem. Additional changes are limited but the Master will be available in four lengths and a variety of different configurations including a panel van, a crew cab, a platform cab and a chassis cab.
Bigger changes occur under the hood as there's a 2.3-liter dCi engine that has outputs of 110 PS (81 kW), 125 PS (92 kW), 135 PS (99 kW) and 165 PS (121 kW). Despite being more powerful than its predecessor, Renault says models equipped with 165 PS (121 kW) engine will consume up to 1.5 L/100km less than its predecessor.
Speaking of fuel efficiency, the Master has also been equipped with an ECOmode system that optimizes the engine and climate control system for fuel saving of up to10 percent. There's also an improved power steering system that reduces fuel consumption and the amount of effort required to turn at low speeds.
Last but not least, the van offers a variety of improved safety systems including Hill Start Assist, Electronic Stability Control, Trailer Swing Assist and an Extended Grip system that promises to optimize traction when driving on snow, sand or mud.
