One of the smaller truck ranges from Renault, the Mascott was discontinued in 2010. One of their more laudable efforts to create a smaller van, it was marketed as a heavy duty version of the Master, somewhere in between the original and the larger Midlum. It was popular all over Europe for a time, proving attractive to many smaller firms doing minor maintenance and removal jobs.
In its 11-year history, the Mascott had managed to fill a void in the truck market for something larger than a standard van but smaller than a mid-range truck. However, its demise came after Renault decided to revamp the entire Master range. Nevertheless, some Mascotts are still available, including those used as box vans and tippers.

First made in 1999, the Mascott was pushed as being a step up from a bog-standard Master. The 2.0-litre and 3.0-litre engines available with some of the earlier models were meant to be sufficient enough to cope with larger payloads than the standard Master, helped by higher power ratings of 120 bhp and 160 bhp.
All gearboxes coming with the Mascott were manual with either five or six speeds to choose from. In terms of weight, most of them were in the region of six tonnes, meaning that they were limited in what they could do. Smaller logistical and maintenance jobs such as tipping were ideal for the Mascott.
The 3.0-litre diesel engine was the biggest possible available for the Mascott, meaning that drivers were limited in what models they had to choose from. Fortunately, a gap which was seldom catered for was filled by this truck, even though its limitations meant that it was phased out after just 11 years.
Today, the Master range of trucks now includes a successor to the Mascott, which does more or less the same thing in working as a heavy duty van.
The Mascott is a steady sort of truck, useful for smaller jobs but not much more than a bog-standard version of the Renault Master.
