  • New Latitude saloon to make world debut at Moscow Motor Show in August.
  • Australian release scheduled for 2011.

Renault has provided the first glimpse of its latest global family saloon, Latitude. In addition to its balanced proportions, generous exterior dimensions, large boot and powerful engines, the newcomer boasts elegant styling.

Based on an architecture that is widely acclaimed for its strength and efficiency, Renault's new saloon rounds off the brand's international high-end range and will appeal to customers who are looking for status, quality and comfort in all of its forms.

Renault Latitude will get its first public airing at the Moscow Motor Show at the end of August. It will also appear at the 2010 Paris Motor Show in October.

In addition to its generous exterior dimensions (length: 4.89m / width: 1.83m / height: 1.49m), the Renault Latitude boasts elegant looks. The contours of the grille are flanked by distinctive bi-xenon adaptive directional headlights, while chrome detailing give the car an unmistakable impression of dynamism and status. Its rear design incorporates ample boot space, and the new car can effectively claim one of the biggest boots in its class. The rear lighting signature employs LED technology and harmonises perfectly with the chrome rear strip which bears the new model's name.

Based on the same architecture as new SM5, which was recently launched in Korea, Latitude profits extensively from Renault's engineering expertise. Occupants benefit from a comfortable, quiet ride, as well as a precise chassis and a choice of powerplants that are sure to give it a decisive edge over its rivals. For enhanced quality and reliability, Renault Latitude comes with a number of features developed and assembled to the Alliance's highest standards and which benefit directly from the excellent results obtained by Renault Laguna on these two fronts.

The complete equipment list, which will be revealed at a later date, places the emphasis on innovation and travelling comfort, including a dual-mode air ioniser with double fragrance diffuser, triple-zone climate control, a massaging driver's seat, Bose Premium audio and Renault hands-free card.

Tailored to meet the demand of its different markets, Renault Latitude's specification will deliver a truly high-end package that will position it as the flagship of Renault's international saloon car range. It is due to go on sale this northern autumn, chiefly in Asia, Africa, Middle East, Mexico, Turkey, Russia and Australia.

The anticipated release date for Australia is H1 2011.
