Renault Master Overview
The Renault Master is classed as an upper-medium sized van (3.5 tonne) and is produced by the French manufacturing company Renault. This van is most popularly sold as a panel van but is also available as a pick-up. This exact same van is marketed under the Vauxhall Movano in the UK and Opel Movano in the rest of Europe. This van is expensive compared with some competitors but is a very practical and comes in a huge range of different body styles.
Renault Master History
The first generation (1980-97) was originally available in 2.5 diesel, and then the 2.1 became available in 1984. Two petrol engines became available but were very rarely used and were the only petrol versions ever to be offered for this vehicle. Along with the Renault Trafic which was launched the same year, this meant a wide range of vans available at Renault.
The second generation (1997-2010) gave this van a new look, and brought it in line with some of its competitors. This was the generation when this vehicle was also marketed as the Vauxhall/Opel Movano. In 2003 this vehicle had a makeover, giving it a similar front end to the smaller Renault Trafic van. A larger version was made from 1999 – 2010 called the Renault Mascott which was a 3.0L diesel, heavy duty version of the Master.
The third generation Master (2010 - present) is the current version in production and is also available as the Vauxhall/Opel Movano and Nissan NV400.

This vehicle is only available in diesel engines, which means that it is a lot more economical. The current engine available on the latest version is the 2.3 dCi, with previous engines being, 2.5 and 2.8D and 2.2 and 2.5 dCi. The first generation had 2.1 and 2.5 diesel engines and also offered 2.0 and 2.2L petrol engines. The current 2.3 dCi version is the most economical.
The available gearboxes over the year have been 5 and 6 speed manual and a 6-speed Quickshift semi-automatic. We have a section of our website dedicated to Renault gearbox parts where you can find your Master gearbox parts.
