Renault Grand Scenic (2010)


Renault Grand Scenic

Following the launches of New Renault Mégane Hatchback and New Renault Mégane Coupé, Renault will further extend the Mégane line-up this spring with the introduction of New Renault Grand Scénic, followed by the release of New Renault Scénic.

Building on the success of Scénic I and Scénic II, and profiting from its unrivalled expertise when it comes to user-friendly interiors, cabin space and travelling comfort, Renault is poised to renew the compact MPV segment's standard-setting model with the launch of New Grand Scénic (five and seven seats) and New Scénic (five seats).

New Renault Scénic and New Renault Grand Scénic both feature dynamic, distinctive styling, while their roomy interiors, comfort-related appointments, stowage solutions and high-tech equipment are destined to set new standards in their category.

TWO NEW DISTINCT PROFILES WITH SIMILARLY FLUID LINES

Renault customers benefit from a choice of two MPVs which each have their own distinctive personalities. New Scénic and New Grand Scénic both feature taut, fluid lines that sweep across the generously-proportioned body panels to exude a sense of dynamism and robustness. Yet while the design of both versions shares an undeniable family likeness with the New Mégane line-up's other models, their profiles are quite different.

Renault Megane Estate (2010)


Renault Megane Estate

The Renault Mégane family has been extended to include a new model which features its own distinct personality: New Renault Mégane Estate. New Renault Mégane Estate boasts vast carrying capacity and could hardly be more driverfriendly, while its dynamic, elegant lines give it undeniable sporting appeal. The newcomer boasts a raft of high-tech equipment, too, including Carminat TomTom®, a new, fullyintegrated satnav system for a pioneering price of less than €500. Compared with New Renault Mégane Hatchback, the extended wheelbase and rear overhang have freed up additional cabin space for occupants, as well as extra carrying capacity. New Renault Mégane Estate comes with a wide choice of engines which combine performance and respect for the environment, including the new TCe 130 petrol unit.

DYNAMIC STYLING

In addition to its dynamic looks, New Renault Mégane Estate has a distinctive character and lives up to the pledge made at the time of the hatchback version's release that every member of the New Renault Mégane family would have its own, clear-cut personality.

New Renault Mégane Estate features identical front-end styling to that of the hatchback version, including the characteristic lines that swoop down from the windscreen pillars to converge on the logo at the centre of the bonnet. Seen from the side, however, New Renault Mégane Estate is very different thanks to its extended wheelbase compared with the hatchback version (+62mm). The newcomer's total length (4,558mm) is also 263mm longer than that of New Renault Mégane Hatchback, and its width stands at 1,808mm. Following this increase in wheelbase and rear overhang, special care has been taken to maintain balanced, dynamic proportions: the slope of the roofline, the steeply-raked rear screen and the elongated, rearward-sweeping side windows give New Renault Mégane Estate an elegant, racy profile, and these fluid lines are set off by the longitudinal roof bars.

Renault Megane RS (2010)


Renault Megane RS

As the latest in a long line of Renault sporting models, Renault Mégane RS stands out through its exhilarating performance and handling. The cocktail of its 250hp engine, unmistakable sporting coupé credentials and choice of two chassis ('Sport' and 'Cup' with limited slip differential) is clear evidence that Renault Mégane RS has been honed to offer an extreme ride.

Coming after Mégane F1 Team R26 and Mégane R26.R, Renault Mégane RS profits fully from Renault Sport Technologies' extensive experience when it comes to manufacturing production sporting models.

Powerful

New Mégane Renault Sport is powered by a new-generation 2-litre 16-valve turbocharged petrol engine which boasts maximum power of 250hp (184kW) at 5,500rpm and peak torque of 340Nm from 3,000rpm. The sum of the different improvements made to this engine has produced a gain of 20hp and 40Nm over Mégane R26.R which itself emerged as the yardstick in the world of performance hatches. The Renault Sport 2.0 T engine's twin-scroll turbo is exceptionally responsive and is particularly flexible at lows revs, with 80 per cent of maximum torque available from 1,900 rpm. Its broad useful rev band makes it a genuine joy to drive in everyday use, and the pleasure remains all the way up to the rev-limiter whenever it is pushed a little harder. The engine of New Mégane RS drives through a six-speed manual gearbox.

Renault Scenic (2010)


Renault Scenic

New Renault Scenic heralds a fresh approach to the compact MPV segment. Thanks to its compact forms, taut lines, distinctive rear lights and sporty front-end looks, which take their inspiration from those of Renault Mégane Coupé, Scenic exudes a sense of sporty dynamism more readily associated with the world of saloon cars.

Renault Scenic's styling features a blend of fluid and taut lines. Its dynamic appeal is underlined by its three-part grille which, like that of Renault Mégane Coupé, is based on a central air-intake incorporating a smart black crossbar, flanked by two scoops picked out by satin-finish chrome trim. The lines of these scoops carry over to the headlamps to give Renault Scenic's front end undeniable personality. The flame-effect line beneath the headlights continues in the form of the character line which sweeps rearward to further emphasize the styling's dynamic look, a feeling which is reinforced by the plunging roofline and steeply-raked rear screen. The two-part 'boomerang'-shaped rear lights are similar to those of new Renault Grand Scenic. However, instead of sweeping forward, they are turned inward towards the boot, a detail which is exclusive to Renault Scenic.

Renault Scenic exudes an unmistakable impression of robustness which is expressed by the curves of its front wings and its rear flanks. Wide front and rear tracks (1,545mm front; 1,547mm rear) ensure that Renault Scenic sits squarely on the road with its inherent stability. Its proportions, beltline and large door panels also convey a reassuring protective feel.

Renault Captur Concept (2011)


Renault Captur Concept

At the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, Renault revealed its new brand identity which puts people at the forefront of its concerns. The new and ambitious design strategy which resulted from this is founded on different stages of the human life cycle, with each phase taking the form of a specific concept car. The first, the two-seater DeZir coupé, expressed 'falling in love', the passion present at the beginning of any new adventure. Now Renault Captur Concept addresses the second phase of this cycle, that of two people exploring the world around them.

Just like its predecessor, Renault Captur defines the simple, sensuous and warm style that will be progressively extended to future Renault car designs. "Captur is a fun and sporty crossover, ideal for a young couple about to discover the world" explains director of design, Laurens Van den Acker. "It takes as its basis the fundamental design language introduced on the DeZir concept car but adds a more technical dimension - more functional but still highly sensuous," adds Axel Breun, director of concept cars.

A CROSSOVER THAT'S ALL MUSCLE IN MOTION

In its proportions and fluid curves, Renault Captur Concept evokes movement and lightness, yet at the same time displaying powerful and muscular all-terrain cues. Just as with DeZir, angles, corners and lines have given way to sensuous and natural forms. For the exterior designer, Julio Lozano, the main sources of inspiration were athletes and radical sports. "In designing Captur, I began with the image of a sprinter on the starting blocks, his muscles tensed, and the energy unleashed when the starting pistol is fired," he explains. The design also references equipment such as helmets, gloves and other protective gear used in radical sports, combining high technology with sophistication and lightness.

Renault Frendzy Concept (2011)


Renault Frendzy Concept

Ahead of the 64th Frankfurt Motor Show, Renault is pleased to reveal details of the Frendzy concept car.

After the notion of 'love at first sight' expressed by DeZir, discovering the world with Captur and the establishment of a family with R-Space, Frendzy presents the world of work. It is the fourth step in Renault's design strategy based on the different stages of the human life cycle.

The latest concept car to be produced under the leadership of Laurens van den Acker is the perfect multi-talented vehicle. As a commercial business vehicle which can double up perfectly as a comfortable passenger car, it meets the requirements of business users on the one hand and those of families on the other.

A fully fledged office on wheels with the introduction of the new BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, the electrically powered Frendzy showcases Renault's new design language.

Laurens van den Acker, Senior Vice President, Design Renault: "Frendzy is the fourth vehicle to illustrate Renault's new design strategy, a series which started with DeZir. Frendzy takes an original and innovative stance on the world of light commercial vehicles - a key part of Renault's activities".

Renault Laguna (2011)


Renault Laguna

New Renault Laguna's more assertive front-end styling - which features 'eyelid' headlights with black masks as standard, as well as additional chrome trimming for the new pearlescent black grille - gives the model an unmistakably more dynamic stance. It immediately comes across as more nervous and playful, and points to the promise of even greater driving pleasure.

A NEW FRONT-END DESIGN

The front end's more forceful and more assertive looks immediately set the tone. In keeping with the enjoyment promised by New Renault Laguna's performance credentials, the new front design is both expressive and dynamic. The bumper incorporates a new pearlescent black grille, as well as more extensive use of chrome trimming.

The waistline of the saloon version extends around the boot, just above the smoke LED rear lights.

Located partly in a relatively high-up position on the boot lid, the latter contribute to the car's dynamic overall stance and provide a distinctive rear lighting signature.

The twin exhaust tailpipes seen on versions powered by the higher-end engines belie the presence of a thoroughbred powertrain under the bonnet, while the dual aerial has been incorporated in the rear window to play a part in the fluidity of the lines.

New Renault Laguna Estate stands out through its steeply-raked rear window and the form of its rearmost side windows which accentuate its flowing, sporty lines, a sensation reinforced by the car's profiled roof bars.

Renault Latitude (2011)


Renault Latitude

Renault Latitude is a generously-dimensioned saloon car. Its nicely balanced proportions and elegant lines point to the exceptional comfort and wellbeing occupants can look forward to onboard. This promise is confirmed by the refinement and high quality finish of the cabin, as well as by the interior's carefully selected materials and occupant-friendly layout.

Renault Latitude is a new addition to the Renault range. It is a large saloon, with a length of 4,897mm, a width of 1,832mm, a height of 1,483mm, a 2,762mm wheelbase and front and rear overhangs of 1,035mm and 1,100mm respectively.

At the front, the bi-Xenon cornering headlights set either side of the chrome grille contribute to the model's unmistakable poise. The lines of these lights extend rearward via a waistline that sweeps around the body and across the boot to produce a particularly elegant stance. The sculpted wheel arches and long bonnet accentuate the model's highend status.

Modern styling details include the rear lighting signature which employs a blend of LED and conventional technologies.

The panoramic electric glass sunroof provides a brightly lit cabin, while its gloss black finish gracefully prolongs the rake of the windscreen to the rear window. Renault Latitude's style is further asserted by the smart chrome arch which frames the side windows.

AN INVITING INTERIOR

As the doors open, the instrument panel's centrally-located TFT (Thin Film Transistor) colour screen gradually lights up to welcome the driver onboard. Then, when the engine is fired up, the LED backlit instruments come to life as the needles sweep across the two gauges and the graduations appear.

Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet (2011)


Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet

New Renault Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet rounds off the renewal of the Renault Mégane family in style with introduction of the line-up's sixth body type. The newcomer's striking looks combine the elegance of a coupé with the promise of the thrills that go hand-in-hand with driving a cabriolet.

New Renault Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet builds on the strengths that forged the success of its predecessor - including a large, folding glass roof and a raft of user-friendly equipment - yet it goes further still by offering customers:

  • unruffled open-top motoring thanks to the forward position of the windscreen and a fixed glass wind deflector situated behind the rear head restraints,
  • outstanding handling performance thanks to a stiffer chassis and a new electric power steering system,
  • a broad choice of engines, including one which can be ordered with the all-new automatic EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) transmission.
  • careful attention to quality, including high-gloss black and satin-effect chrome exterior features.

Renault Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet is manufactured alongside Scénic and Grand Scénic at Renault's Douai plant in France. It consequently benefits from the experience gained since the beginning of the Mégane programme, including the assembly of the former-generation Renault Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet.
