Re­nault so­lid­i­fies an al­ready pow­er­ful per­for­mance

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING - — WR.

RE­NAULT said its lat­est duo of Clios, the 88 kW Ex­pres­sion turbo edc and the 66 kW Blaze turbo lim­ited edi­tion, are priced right and set to boost an al­ready pow­er­ful b-seg­ment per­for­mance.

And peace of mind mo­tor­ing is as­sured with Re­nault’s industry-lead­ing five-year or 150 000 km me­chan­i­cal war­ranty, a three-year or 45 000 km ser­vice plan and a six-year anti-cor­ro­sion war­ranty.

The Blaze boasts Blaze-spe­cific in­te­rior colour de­tail, leather steer­ing wheel and gear lever, ex­te­rior Blaze badge and re­vised 15-inch wheel cov­ers. The Ex­pres­sion adds a seven-inch touch-screen mul­ti­me­dia sys­tem with on-board nav­i­ga­tion, leather steer­ing wheel and gear lever, man­ual air con­di­tioner, 16-inch al­loy wheels and front fog lights.

The rec­om­mended re­tail pric­ing starts at R234 900 for the Ex­pres­sion while the Blaze lists for R179 900, but it is a buy­ers’ mar­ket and lo­cal deal­ers are bend­ing over back­wards to ac­com­mo­date sales with dis­counted ex­tras like metal­lic paint, an op­tion at R2 500, or a touch-screen Sat­Nav at R6 000, which in­te­grates with the Re­nault Bass Re­flex sound sys­tem and pro­vides Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity.
