The first generation was first marketed in France in 2013 and came to Australia in 2016. It was subsequently pulled from the market.

The new generation vehicle boasts high levels of comfort and safety and comes with some interesting features.


It has:

  • An all-new ‘Smart Cockpit’ with 9.3-inch portrait infotainment screen (it is taller than it is wide)
  • Not just folding but a sliding rear bench for good versatility
  • A 7-speed EDC transmission
  • Five-year/unlimited km warranty

Renault’s makes only brief reference to the new engine, which is of 1.3 litres capacity.

But prices have increased.

The entry level “Life” model starts at just over $28,000 and the top of the line “Intens” is a bit under $36,000 to all prices you have to add on road costs
