We often discuss exciting car launches overseas, but then have to end with a disclaimer that we do not yet know if and when these models will be sold here. But it seems when the news finally arrives, it comes in droves. 2021 will be a massive year for Renault South Africa.
Imagine driving to work and back again in the afternoon, without using petrol. Yet being able to go away for the weekend without worrying about charging your battery. Welcome to the world of the hybrid.
Renault Captur fans have been biting at the bit for the 2019 model to hit showroom floors and they certainly weren’t disappointed when it did. The Captur has always been a staunch favourite with the local compact SUV crowd (in fact, over 1.2 million units have been sold globally since its launch back in 2013!) and the elegant updates that had been made to the existing design have only served to cement its popularity even further.
Since the Renault Captur was first introduced in 2013, the brand has come a long way to where it is today. In fact, it is one of their most important cars as they sell more than the Renault Clio and the Renault Megane. They’ve invested a lot of time and money in the second-generation Renault Captur and it has certainly paid off.
The all-new second-generation Renault Captur crossover is bound for South Africa and we couldn’t be more excited. Judging from a few ‘not-so-secret’ spy shots, it certainly looks the part while showing off the new modular CMF-B platform with an eye on electrification along with level 2 semi-autonomous driving tech.
There is some good news all the way from Delhi, India in the form of the new seven-seater Renault Triber. Renault has made a bold move expanding their range in the hotly contested crossover market. The Triber is a modified version of the Renault Kwid’s CMF-A platform and will be vying for top spot against the likes of the Honda BR-V, Suzuki Ertiga and Toyota Avanza.
Just when you thought that Renault had produced an urban SUV that ticked all the boxes, they go a improve on perfection. The all new 2017 Renault Captur is the perfect balance between the slick urban style of city cruiser and the rugged open-road toughness of a 4×4. The 2017 Captur has been tweaked to create a vehicle that is not only more refined, elegant and practical but with the new introduction of the entry level Captur Blaze, one that is more affordable too.
Flowing lines, distinctive features and the option for extensive personalisation help the Renault Captur stand out from the crowd. This vehicle is something unlike you’ll ever have driven before, because its unique blend of MPV, SUV and hatchback makes it an automobile that is as unique as it is awesome.
Renault had a bumper sales year in 2016 both internationally and abroad, with 3 of our vehicle models making both international and local waves thanks to their massive sales numbers. These three stalwarts of the recent automotive sales industry have helped set Renault apart from our competitors thanks to their style, build quality, reliability and driver appeal. These amazing vehicles have helped to change the driving landscape and we’re proud to present them to you.
The Renault Sandero Stepway
One of Renault’s top international sellers and South Africa’s top selling Renault of 2016. The ever popular Renault Sandero Stepway made it to the top 10 sellers list in South Africa with a total of 5861 units sold during the 12 months of 2016.
When the term “crossover” was first coined, it conjured up mental images of inelegant, Frankensteinian creations. Years later, the only thing left in shambles is our preconceived notions of what constitutes and separates a hatchback from a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) and a sports utility vehicle (SUV). Nowhere has this unique blend of aesthetics and functionality harmonised so elegantly as in the Renault Captur.
