Renault Master Bus

Renault have a range of vehicles to keep the customer keen; you will already be aware of the stylish cars in sedan, hatch and wagon form, but there is also a commercial range of vans and trucks that Renault produce.  These have been immensely popular throughout Europe, and have had success here in Australia as well.  The latest edition to the Renault Commercial range is the very roomy and comfortable Renault Master Bus.  Like Toyota, Renault also provides the vehicles to cater for the busy commercial world of bulk passenger transport.  Renault has designed one of the leading vehicles in its class, and the Master Bus impresses.

Renault’s Master Bus competes in the small bus market, and the low operating costs and extensive warranty make the Master Bus a very strong competitor.  Renault provides the new Master Bus buyer with a 3 year/200,000 km warranty, 3 year Roadside Assist and 3 year services at a capped price.  It makes a lot of sense buying a new Master Bus if your business needs a safe, comfortable and roomy small bus that has the capacity to seat eleven passengers plus the driver.  Renault’s confidence in their product is, perhaps, exemplified with the 12 month/30,000 km service intervals – whichever comes first.

The Renault Master Bus is powered by the robust and torquey 2.3-litre turbo-diesel engine that has the latest injection diesel technology.  With as much as 350 Nm available from 1500 rpm and 110 kW at 3500 rpm, the performance of the Renault Master Bus is excellent for its primary task of carrying passengers with their luggage from A-to-B.  A simple front-wheel-drive layout that has power fed from the engine to the wheels via a six-speed automated manual gearbox that works in a responsive and smooth fashion.  The Master Bus sits nicely on the road and though light in the steering, feels very safe and secure on the road.  Sitting on 16-inch rims with 225/65 R16 rims, grip is sure and the ride smooth over a wide range of surfaces.  Large brake discs serve to stop the vehicle in an emergency stop and there is an array of driver aids like ABS, ESC and EBD to keep the Bus in control.  A handy feature for when you need to start off on a slope is the Hill Start Assist feature which provides confidence in these situations.  All-in-all the Renault Master is easy to drive, smooth and powerful.  Renault rates the Master Bus with the ability to tow 2.5 tonnes.

Master Bus safety features include park assist sensors and cameras, automated headlights, rain sensor wipers, cruise control with a speed limiter, lane departure warning, and front passenger and driver airbags.

The driver also has plenty of comforts in the Master Bus, and things like satellite navigation, Bluetooth hands-free communications, a special Isringhausen driver’s suspension seat with huge adjustability for comfort, cup holders, and air-conditioning make for a nice cabin space to drive in.

Two large rear doors with 270 degree opening capacity provide easy access to the luggage area.  Luggage volume is around 3.5 m3.  The left-side sliding door is electronically activated and large for easy passenger access.  A range of vivid and eye-catching exterior colours help to show off the modern lines of Renault’s small bus attractively.

With the growing tourist industry, the need for low cost, small bus transport is growing.  Renault has the small bus answer in its very complete Master Bus variant.
