Road Test

Built for comfortable cruising, and it does this very well. Its sumptuous cabin has well-shaped, supportive seats, high levels of equipment plenty of trim choices. Available as a hatchback or estate (Renault call it a sports tourer). Engine line-up offers power between 110hp and 175hp, including three new engines: 1.5 dCi 110, 2.0 dCi 130 and 2.0 16V 140. With the 2.0 dCi 150 having the Renault-Nissan Alliance six-speed automatic gearbox, it is both flexible and efficient. The new economical and ecological 1.5 dCi 110 version offers a balance between emissions, fuel economy and performance in its segment with 55.4 mpg on a combined cycle and only 136 grams of CO2 per km. Completing the additions, is the new smooth and responsive 140hp two-litre 16V petrol engine, developed jointly again by Renault and Nissan, which runs silently under the bonnet.
