Wading (Fording) Depth
The road out to our house has flooded several times since August.
Last week I had a chat conversation with Renault Customer Services and asked what the fording depth is. They got back to me today.
The van is entirely rain and splash proof but no part of the body should be submerged. The fording depth is the same as the ground clearance.
Ground Clearance and wading depth are 184-210mm for an empty van.
Fully loaded it is 153mm.
For comparison our BMW Z4 is 250mm of still water at speeds under 6mph. A BMW X3 is 500mm. For both cars, the fording depth is well above the ground clearance.
