Renault has announced new enhanced traction solutions to meet the needs of business customers who operate in challenging terrain conditions.
X-Track technology, set to be available across the LCV range, provides even higher traction performance for intensive use in particularly challenging conditions. This new feature is available across the Kangoo, Trafic and Master line-ups. X-Track conversions cover four main aspects of the vehicle: Limited Slip Differential, a raised ground clearance, underbody protection and All Weather tyres.
Meanwhile, the Renault Master can now be specified with 4×4 transmission to provide outstanding traction for intensive use on particularly difficult terrain and low-grip conditions. Drivers of the Renault Master 4×4 can choose between two modes: 4×2 transmission for normal roads or a 4×4 mode for poor quality roads or off-road use.
The new X-Track versions and Master 4×4 complement the existing Grip Xtend technology – designed to deliver enhanced grip for occasional use on slippery terrain. Grip Xtend is a standard feature of Renault’s Kangoo (ICE versions only), Trafic and Master PC and LCV ranges in Europe.
The X-Track versions will be available in Europe from later in 2016 whilst the Master 4×4 is set to be available from the summer. UK on sale dates will be announced in the coming months.
