Re­nault an­nounces up­grades to Clio and Cap­tur

The Oban Times - - Motors -

Re­nault has an­nounced free-of-charge spec­i­fi­ca­tion up­grades to its Clio and Cap­tur mod­els.

DAB ra­dio is now stan­dard equip­ment on Clio and Cap­tur mod­els fit­ted with ei­ther the Me­di­aNav or R-Link in­fo­tain­ment sys­tems mean­ing that all, apart from en­try level ver­sions, now come with DAB as stan­dard. The in­tro­duc­tion of the DAB ra­dio means pas­sen­gers now have ac­cess to have even more ra­dio sta­tions whilst on the move. Both Me­di­aNav and R-Link have also been up­graded, with the newly-re­designed Me­di­aNav gain­ing Blue­tooth™ stream­ing, TMC traf­fic in­for­ma­tion and SIRI “Eyes-Free” for com­pat­i­ble iPhones. The up­dated R-Link sys­tem has a new, clearer and more sen­si­tive screen, al­low­ing multi-touch ges­tures such as ‘pinch to zoom’. The Clio Ex­pres­sion+ trim level has been re­named as Clio ‘Play’ to bring the B-seg­ment su­per­mini into line with its smaller city car sib­ling, Twingo. Mean­while, the Dy­namique S Nav gets a new-look leather steer­ing wheel and grey up­hol­stery. The Clio is avail­able in five trim lev­els and with a range of two petrol and one diesel ef­fi­cient en­gines and is priced from £11,145. De­spite the spec­i­fi­ca­tion up­grades, the Clio is still avail­able with nu­mer­ous per­son­al­i­sa­tion op­tions such as the GT Line look pack, coloured 16” and 17” al­loy wheels, ex­te­rior and interior coloured touch packs. Ac­ces­sory packs such as the car­bon-look styling pack, a sporty spoiler pack, a pro­tec­tion pack to in­clude park­ing sen­sors and a Tour­ing Pack with quick-re­lease tow bar are all also still avail­able.

The Cap­tur is avail­able in four trim lev­els and with a range of two petrol and two diesel en­gines and is priced from £14,295. Cap­tur is the best-sell­ing com­pact cross­over in Europe year-to-date in 2015 and, as of the end of Au­gust this year, had sold more than 416,000 ve­hi­cles glob­ally since launch in 2013.
