Renault at the Geneva Motor Show



27th February, 2007

Renault Clio Rip Curl

For Renault, there are fresh developments among existing models at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show, with the arrival of the Clio Rip Curl, Clio Renault F1 Team R27, Scénic Conquest, Mégane Renault Sport dCi and Espace Tech Run.

The Rip Curl Clio invites you to step into a world of fun and freedom. Designed in partnership with the renowned surf and snowboard specialist Rip Curl, the Clio’s dynamic, appealing lines are complemented by special Iceberg Blue paint and 16-inch alloy wheels. The interior has a sporting feel too, with its bright red and contrasting deep black trim. It is comfortable and practical – the ideal environment for whenever you want to get away from it all. The Rip Curl Clio features a range of equipment tailored to those who enjoy outdoor sports, with rubber floor protection and a rigid, sand- and snow-resistant boot box.

The Rip Curl Clio is also 100% dedicated to music, with an Audio Connection Box that allows portable MP3 players to be linked to the stereo system. It is available with two environmentally friendly engines: the TCE 100 hp and 1.5 dCi 65 hp FAP are packed with innovations and succeed in being fun to drive, economical and low in emissions. The Rip Curl Clio marks the beginning of a long-term partnership between Renault and Rip Curl, an association that should evolve over the coming years.

Renault Clio Renault F1 Team R27

When the latest Renault R27 Formula One car was launched, Renault Sport Technologies used the occasion to introduce Clio Renault F1 Team R27. It was a unique opportunity to celebrate the company’s back-to-back world championship titles while offering driving enthusiasts an entry into the world of Formula 1. With its red brake calipers, new Sirius Yellow paintwork and exclusive Renault F1 Team and World Champion logos, this limited-edition Clio is instantly identifiable as Mégane Renault F1 Team’s smaller sibling. Inside, the Recaro seats and numbered plaque leave you in no doubt about the car’s unique character and serious sporting credentials. Standing purposefully on its 17-inch wheels, Clio Renault F1 Team features a ‘Cup’ chassis to generate extra performance and make it even more fun at the wheel.

Renault Scenic Conquest

Scénic Conquest has been designed to help owners make the most of their leisure time. Its rugged front and rear styling resembles that of an off-roader. With its raised ride height and strengthened suspension, the chassis has been adapted to suit all kinds of terrain. Scénic Conquest is available with a choice of 2.0 16V 135 hp petrol or 1.9 dCi 130 hp diesel power (plus, in some markets, the 1.6 16V 110 hp petrol and 1.5 dCi105 hp diesel). Its extensive range of standard equipment includes rear parking proximity sensors, alloy wheels, longitudinal roof bars and, on 2.0 16V and 1.9 dCi versions, an electronic stability programme (ESP).

Scénic Conquest will be manufactured in France at Renault’s Douai plant and will be released in Europe in June 2007.

Renault Megane Renault Sport dCi

Mégane Renault Sport dCi makes its debut at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show and completes Renault’s sporting range with a high-performance diesel. Designed to make daily driving a pleasure rather than a chore, the Mégane Renault Sport dCi will appeal to those who appreciate reasonable running costs. Its 2.0 dCi 175 hp engine and manual six-speed gearbox give it the kind of driver appeal worthy of the best petrol-powered sports saloons, yet it also has startling fuel economy – 6.5 litres/100 km on a combined cycle. The chassis features the front and rear suspension from Mégane Renault Sport, which guarantees cutting-edge handling. A Mégane Cup chassis is available as an option, for those who seek an even more sporting manner.

Available with 3 or 5 doors, Mégane Renault Sport dCi will be released in Europe in April 2007.

Renault Espace Tech Run

Espace Tech Run is a limited edition model that targets technologically-minded families. It features a triple helping of new technology: for music lovers, there’s a 4x30W MP3 compatible CD Radio with Audio Connection Box (for USB and iPod® connectivity); for cinema buffs there’s a DVD-DivX player with two seven-inch screens, one in the back of each front headrestraint; and movies can be heard through infra-red headphones, which are also compatible with younger passengers’ favourite console games. Espace Tech Run has a distinctive identity, with special design details both inside and out.

All Espace models are built at the Sandouville factory and almost 43,000 units were sold in 2006. The Espace Tech Run is now available in Europe.
