In readiness for the rush on new 63-plate registrations next month, Renault has launched its latest promotion, ‘Vive Le Summer’.

Running from this month until the 22nd September, every customer who takes a test drive in any new Renault model will win something in the giveaway. The range of designer summer-themed prizes includes everything from White Company picnic baskets, Lacoste sunglasses, to travel speakers. On certain dates, iPad minis will also be on offer to Renault purchasers.

Selected models are also available with tempting cash-saving deals and promotions, including VAT off all Méganes and Scénics, and free insurance on selected Clio versions and Twingo Dynamique.

The campaign will be heavily promoted using a TV ad for the new Captur crossover, as well as a nod to the latest two others to join the French marque’s trio of fresh-faced small cars, Clio and ZOE. A heavyweight Press and digital campaign will naturally support the initiative over the same timeframe.

Superstitious motorists who might have swerved the previous 13-registration plate will be spoilt for choice at the range of new Renault models on offer. Ranging from the cheeky Twingo, right up to spacious family favourites such as Mégane and Scénic, to the power-packed Clio Renaultsport 200 Turbo EDC and the four-strong range of electric vehicles, it has a model to suit most budgets and requirements.

Renault’s best-selling model, Clio, is likely to be a huge draw. Inspired by the stunning DeZir concept supercar, its svelte and curvy exterior lines blend with a high-tech and upmarket interior. The high-selling supermini is also available with plenty of innovative touches.

R-Link multimedia system, climate control and heated front seats. Customers can also customise their car with a range of interior and exterior Touch Packs and stylish roof decals.

Newcomer Captur also hit the showroom just one month ago boasting the expressive style and driving position of a SUV, with the practicality of an MPV and the handling and driving pleasure of a hatchback. Personalisation is at the core of its appeal, with three Collections, Arizona, Manhattan and Miami. Each of them matches the adventurous spirit and personality of its official UK ambassador Steve Backshall, the well-known children’s author and explorer. Prices start from only £12,495 on-the-road.

Renault also continues to lead the way with its four-strong, 100 per cent electric vehicle line-up. The range flagship, ZOE, is a stylish, affordable and incredibly versatile supermini – it is priced the same as a diesel-engined alternative, from under £14,000, and expertly designed from the ground up as a plug-in car. It even includes a free 7kW domestic wallbox, giving full battery charge in three to four hours, supplied and installed by British Gas. Alternatively, unlike several other electric cars, it can be fast charged in one hour (22kW), or rapid charged to 80% charge in only 30 minutes (43kW).

The facelifted Scénic range, including the seven-seater Grand Scénic, now comes with the company’s new design identity, as seen on each of Renault’s latest arrivals: Twingo, Clio, Captur and ZOE. The new crossover-inspired version, XMOD, is a more rugged variant of the French brand’s iconic MPV, yet retains its trademark practicality and ease-of-use. With unique wheels and striking front and rear bumpers, and black roof bars, it certainly stands out – especially when priced the same as the equivalent standard Scénic, in spite of its enhanced looks and higher equipment level, including Grip Xtend Control, from £17,955.

On top of the sizzling deals, all cars qualify for Renault’s 4+ included package, worth £1,000, giving free four years/100,000 miles warranty, routine servicing and roadside assistance. See www.renault.co.uk/summer for more information.
