Renault Megane RS (2014)


Renault Megane RS

Renault upgraded the entire Mégane range, which now features the new design identity. The Renault Mégane family has gained an extra dash of vitality that further strengthens its appeal.

Fitted with Renault's latest equipment and technological innovations, the brand's quality flagship remains firmly focused on travelling comfort and driving pleasure.

The Renault Mégane sport range has also been renewed. GT-Line and GT trim models gain a new bumper while Mégane RS is the first to feature the RS Replay function, for sharing more motorsport fun with friends.

Shared styling cues, different weapons of seduction

The Renault Mégane range is taking on the new brand identity, shared by all new Renault cars.

The hatchback, coupé and estate models sport a new bumper, new grilles and a new boot featuring the enlarged Renault logo set against a gloss black background.

New daytime running lights wrapping around the sides of the body give an extra boost of vitality to all Mégane models.

The entire range asserts its personality with an identical front end for the hatchback, estate and coupé, while each one keeps its own distinctive identity.

Mégane Hatch asserts its elegance and modern styling, while Mégane Estate keeps all its practicality, wrapped in a flowing, stylish skin, and Mégane Coupé confirms its appeal by retaining its dynamic style lines.

Renault Twingo (2015)


Renault Twingo

Two decades after it revolutionised the small car segment with the first-generation Twingo, Renault has taken a fresh look at its celebrated city car. The brand's engineers and designers started from a blank sheet of paper and took their inspiration from the legacy left by the original Twingo and the Renault 5. The result is a new, innovative and agile car that is great fun to drive.

A project in association with Daimler

In 2008, Renault's engineers and designers set out to create the next-generation Twingo with the aim of rekindling the innovative spirit that was such a hallmark of the original Twingo released in 1992. It was a challenging mission but they set their sights high, in keeping with the philosophy behind the iconic model which lost no time in becoming a symbol of Renault's creativity.

The aim was to create an even roomier and more agile city car, despite its smaller footprint, and this is how the idea of switching to a rear-mounted engine took form, in spite of the higher development costs this entailed.

Renault's thoughts found an echo in those of Daimler which, at the same time, was exploring ideas for the next-generation two- and four-seat versions of the Smart. After early talks, a strategic cooperation agreement was concluded by the two firms in 2010, marking the official green light for the joint-development of New Twingo and the next versions of the two- and four-seat Smart.

Alpine Vision Concept (2016)


Alpine Vision Concept

Alpine unveiled the Alpine Vision show car. Marrying elegance, agility and authenticity, this mid-engined two-seater coupé is in every respect a true Alpine. The Alpine Vision heralds the style and performance of the road-going sports car that will be revealed before the end of 2016. Manufactured in Dieppe, France, the upcoming model will go on sale from 2017, initially in Europe and subsequently across the rest of the world.

Alpine has chosen the roads visited by the Rallye Monte-Carlo and, more specifically, the famous and twisty Col de Turini - the scene of its most celebrated early sporting achievements - as the backdrop for its renaissance. Alpine is back to carve out a clear niche in the premium sports car market, promising an invigorating experience to both aficionados and those who appreciate automotive beauty.

In a return to its roots, Alpine has chosen the roads visited by the Rallye Monte-Carlo in the southern French Alps to celebrate its return. These mountains - which gave the brand its name - have naturally influenced the style of the Alpine Vision show car. The pleasure of owning and driving an Alpine has always stemmed from the fact that the marque makes a point of covering all the bases. The Alpine Vision is a mid-engined, two-seater sports coupé which incorporates all of the expected hallmarks in a thoroughly contemporary package. Its design hints at what drivers can expect to experience behind the wheel of an Alpine-badged sports car:

  • The exhilaration and thrill of driving an Alpine,
  • The agility of a lightweight, elegant design that focuses firmly on the essentials,
  • The authenticity of a sports car that follows in a long line of illustrious Alpine models.
Renault Clio RS 220 Trophy EDC (2016)


Renault Clio RS 220 Trophy EDC

Renaultsport have unveiled a special edition version of the Clio Renaultsport at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show - the Clio Renaultsport 220 Trophy EDC.

Following in the slipstream of other Trophy models such as the 2005 Clio Renaultsport 182 Trophy, the Mégane Renaultsport 265 Trophy and the current Mégane Renaultsport 275 Trophy the Clio Renaultsport 220 Trophy has been finely honed by Renaultsport's passionate engineers to add even sharper handling, improved driving characteristics and increased performance coupled with exclusivity and distinctive styling.

The Clio Renaultsport 220 Trophy is due to go on sale in the summer of 2015 and will offer a number of enhancements including increased power and torque with Stop & Start technology and reduced CO2emissions. A refined EDC transmission, quicker steering, a lower and stiffer chassis and upgraded tyres will make Renault's hot hatch even hotter.

Engine

Thanks to revised engine mapping, the 220 Trophy now has 10 per cent more power and up to an extra 40Nm of torque. It also benefits from a larger turbo, an air intake designed to minimise pressure losses and a revised exhaust system to accommodate the latest Euro6 catalytic converter (and minimise back pressure losses).

  • Maximum power has been increased to 220hp at 6,250rpm (up 20hp)
  • Maximum torque rises to 260Nm (a gain of 20Nm)
  • 'Torque Boost' feature in fourth and fifth gears raises peak torque to 280Nm (a gain of 40Nm)
  • Maximum revs increase from 6,500rpm to 6,800rpm
  • Complying with Euro6 emissions standards, the car's CO2 output improves by 6g/km to 138g/km and also drops down a VED band
Renault Kadjar (2016)


Renault Kadjar

Buoyed by the success of the Captur, Renault is continuing its offensive in the world of crossovers with the launch of the Kadjar, the brand's first C-segment crossover. In a fast-growing and extremely popular area of the market, the Kadjar will boost Renault's ambitions on the international stage, as it is due to go on sale initially in Europe and in many African and Mediterranean Basin countries, followed by China.

This sibling to the Captur shakes up established thinking by bringing an innovative and attractive proposition to the crossover market. The Renault Kadjar stands out through its fluid, athletic exterior styling. Meanwhile, its interior is both sporty and refined, courtesy of the quality of the materials employed and the attention that has gone into its finish. Available with either four- or two-wheel-drive transmission, the Renault Kadjar encourages adventure while at the same time delivering easy maneuverability in town thanks to its compact footprint (4.45 metres long x 1.84 metres wide). Furnished with high-quality interior appointments and modern equipment, the Renault Kadjar offers advanced connectivity with the R-Link 2® multimedia system, along with a relaxed experience behind the wheel, courtesy of the latest driving aids.

The Renault Kadjar also benefits from a range of particularly efficient engines which position it at the forefront of the segment in terms of low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

The Renault Kadjar was unveiled to the public at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

Renault Kwid (2016)


Renault Kwid

As an innovator since 1898, Renault has constantly sought to pioneer new ideas, question conventional thinking and reinvent the way we use cars.

"With Kwid, Renault continues to pursue its strategy of accessible mobility for all to step up its international growth. Using a new Renault-Nissan Alliance platform and following the trail blazed by the Duster, the Kwid will enable Renault to continue its expansion and address the needs of customers who want a vehicle that is stylish, robust and easy to use." Carlos Ghosn - Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Groupe Renault

The Kwid overturns established A-segment design cues thanks to a robust, stylish exterior plus a modern, welcoming interior equipped with features normally associated with models from the next segment up.

This eminently modern newcomer features SUV styling and construction, combining generous cabin space with unprecedented features for its segment, while its compact footprint makes it particularly versatile.

Quality interior appointments include a modern Media-Nav navigation/multimedia system complete with large seven-inch touchscreen display and Bluetooth connectivity.

The Kwid combines the comfort and functional user-friendliness of a family city car with a modular interior and a raft of stowage solutions.

Renault has long showcased its ability to develop unique, innovative vehicles designed to meet the specific needs of its international markets.

With the introduction of the Kwid, the brand has gone a step further down the road of designing attractive, affordable vehicles in the small-car segment.

Renault Megane (2016)


Renault Megane

The dynamic-looking, high-quality, All-New Renault Megane - loaded with technology features from higher-segment cars - was Renault's star attraction at the 2015 IAA in Frankfurt. Alongside a range of highly-efficient petrol and diesel engines, it will be available from launch as a GT created in association with Renaultsport. A 'Hybrid Assist' diesel will be added in 2017. The new Megane goes on sale in mainland Europe in early 2016.

"The new Megane plays an integral part in Renault's design renewal strategy," says Laurens van den Acker, Senior Vice President, Corporate Design. "Its dynamic lines project both sensuality and status, while its assertive proportions provide it with a well-planted stance on the road and its sculpted forms and strong shoulders hint at the brand's Latin roots. It features a distinctive lighting signature both front and rear, by day as well as by night, and its elegant interior exudes an unmistakeable cockpit feel."

The new Megane is based on Renault's Common Module Family (CMF) vehicle architecture, which makes it possible to offer high-tech features normally available only in cars from higher segments. A number are segment firsts, including a full colour head-up display, a 7-inch colour Thin Film Transistor (TFT) instrument display, a portrait-format 8.7-inch R-Link 2 touchscreen and 4Control four-wheel steering for the GT.

The six highly-efficient engines that will be available at launch have power outputs ranging from 90 to 205hp, with fuel consumption and CO2 emissions as low as 85.6mpg and 86g/km for the ENERGY dCi 110.

Renault Talisman (2016)


Renault Talisman

Renault revealed its new executive saloon. The evocatively named Talisman ticks all the boxes that D-segment customers have come to appreciate, while taking wellbeing and driving enjoyment to a new level.

The Renault Talisman features a unique combination of:

  • Assertive styling: sleek, elegant lines.
  • A warm, spacious cabin: ample room for all occupants and front seats among the very best in the Talisman's class, plus an impressively big boot (608dm3 VDA).
  • Comfort-enhancing innovations: a seven-inch digital instrument display under the dashboard cowling, R-Link2 with 8.7-inch screen, colour head-up display technology, BOSE® Surround Sound and hands-free parking.
  • Innovations for intense enjoyment: Multi-Sense technology to match the mood of the driver. The Talisman is the only D-segment saloon car to combine 4Control® four-wheel steering with active damping, allowing it to deliver unique road manners, plus safe, dynamic, agile handling, and outstanding ride comfort.

All these innovations combine to make the Talisman an executive saloon that will appeal not only thanks to its styling but also through a pleasurable experience for both drivers and passengers alike.

The Talisman is built to the very highest quality standards and meticulous attention has been paid to every detail, including, notably, the depth and lustre of its paint.

Low running costs, plus low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions also figure prominently amongst the Talisman's core strengths.

Renault Talisman Estate (2016)


Renault Talisman Estate

Following the presentation of the saloon version of the Talisman, Renault has taken the wraps off the new Talisman Estate.

The D segment (saloons and estates combined) amounts to more than one million vehicle sales in Europe each year, with estates accounting for 54% of that figure.

The new Renault Talisman Estate carries over all the benefits of the saloon version, while adding the stylish lines and practicality of an estate.

Racy styling

The Talisman Estate features exactly the same dimensions as the saloon (length: 4.86 metres / width: 1.87 metres / height: 1.46 metres / wheelbase: 2.81 metres), along with the same dynamic proportions, sleek profile and high waistline.

The polished aluminium roof bars accentuate the sweeping roofline that is extended by a long lip spoiler. The C-pillar and chrome-bordered side windows contribute to the impression of finesse and sleekness. The slope of the rear window adds a dynamic touch without detracting from boot space.

Easy to load

Thanks to the powered tailgate - which is activated simply by waving your foot underneath the rear bumper - the boot boasts hands-free opening and closing to facilitate loading.

The Talisman Estate offers 572dm3 (VDA) of load space up to the parcel shelf and a maximum load length of 1,116mm. With the rear seats in the folded position, that figure increases to 2,010mm, equating to a volume of almost 1,700dm3 (VDA).

The secret to well-being: a spacious, cabin and welcoming, comfortable seats

Renault Kaptur (2017)


Renault Kaptur

Renault extended its range with the presentation in Moscow of the all-new Renault Kaptur crossover which will be equipped with four-wheel drive transmission in Russia. The Kaptur is one of the 10 new models that Groupe Renault's President and CEO Carlos Ghosn announced for this year as Renault continues to expand outside of Europe, notably in Russia.

The launch of the Kaptur in the popular, fast-growing SUV segment will help Renault to consolidate its foothold in the Russian and Eurasian Customs Union markets. The new model is the latest addition to Renault's range in Russia where it rounds out the make's crossover and SUV line-up alongside the Sandero Stepway, Duster and Koleos.

The specific needs of the Russian market were dialled into the new crossover from the very beginning of the design process. In addition to its name, which starts with an emphatic 'K', the Kaptur's dimensions are also specific, while its four-wheel drive transmission stands out as a major ally to cope with the country's harsh climate.

RENAULT'S LATEST STYLING CUES

The Renault Kaptur's design, which is based on Renault's six-petal flower strategy which symbolises the human life cycle, marks a new milestone in the brand's approach to styling in Russia and the CIS.

"To design Renault Kaptur, we have mixed the best of Renault's eye-catching design with a specific attention to Russian needs for off-road abilities, travelling comfort and versatility," said Laurens van den Acker, Corporate Design, Vice President, Groupe Renault, at the model's presentation in Moscow on March 30, 2016. "It is a genuine crossover, with a robust, expressive design."
