Looking at it from the front, the third generation has changed a lot since 1980, something of course, that's not all that simple with such a box-shape. At the rear, the two vertical bulges on the left and right have stayed. On the roof and in the front on the other hand, the small hump has been taken away. On the whole, the vehicle has a more pleasant appearance.

You can choose between two heights and two wheelbases, the longer of which costs between € 800 and € 1500, depending on how the vehicle is fitted out. The longer wheelbase for the van is marginally more expensive. The high-roof for the delivery van will cost you € 1071, regardless of whether it has a long- or a shorter wheelbase.

The Trafic can be had with a double-cabin, without the exterior look being changed. In this case, the wall behind the front seat-row is simply moved to behind the next row of seats and accordingly, the cargo space becomes smaller. In addition, there are sliding windows for the second row of seats, which all in all, at € 3.500, are pretty expensive.

The interior of the Trafic has also become more attractive, they've moved away from the utility vehicle image. The instrumentation and the cladding, also the doors (picture 14), is more like that of motor cars. Picture 15 shows the possibility, from the driver's seat, of using the sun visor-mirror as an additional rear-view mirror.

One should have a good look at the somewhat meagre fittings in the Comfort-version, which costs more than € 500 extra. However, in the basic-version, the delivery van, a passenger airbag is not to be had. Only in the combi is it standard equipment, the same as in the Opel. 01/15

Here you can find more information to its sister-model Opel Vivaro.

You may also find the manufacturing of the Trafic interesting. (Video 4-6).               Top of page               Index
