Re­nault’s traf­fic flow

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Onroad -

THE days of Re­nault mod­els ar­riv­ing in Aus­tralia half­way through their model life are in the past, ac­cord­ing to new boss Justin Ho­ce­var.

‘‘Hope­fully the speed to mar­ket will im­prove with new fac­to­ries,’’ he says.

If that means we start get­ting Re­naults from In­dia, Ho­ce­var sees no prob­lem. How­ever, he says if Aus­tralia gets the next-gen­er­a­tion Clio it will come from Europe.

Re­nault this month launches a new prod­uct as­sault with the Me­gane Hatch, Coupe-Cabri­o­let and RS250, Flu­ence sedan and phase-three Trafic hit­ting the show­room floors.

They will be fol­lowed early next year by the new Lat­i­tude mid-sized sedan, which is slightly larger than the La­guna it re­places — yet slightly cheaper. There will also be limited edi­tion mod­els.
