World premiere All-New Renault Austral

PRESS RELEASE

Renault brings an ambitious model to its SUV range: the All-New Renault Austral. It will serve to bolster efforts to win back the C-segment that forms the core of the global automotive market. The All-New Austral is part of the ‘cars for living’ tradition and marks the next milestone in the C-segment offensive started by the Arkana and the All-New Megane E-TECH Electric, with a resolutely modern approach. The ‘Nouvelle Vague’ that aims to turn the brand into an industry benchmark for technology, clean energy, and services.

Exterior design: an athletic SUV

The All-New Renault Austral merges together the hallmarks of SUV models with Renault’s new ‘sensual tech’ design principles: its curvy, sensual silhouette are a stylish match for the strong geometric lines the structural details like the micro-optic technology used on the rear LED lights and the diamond-shaped patterns in the front lights.

The exterior design on the All-New Austral is athletic, sophisticated and elegant.

Interior design: a cocoon of technology

The All-New Austral’s high-tech cockpit is built around the large OpenR screen that combines the 12.3″ dashboard instrument display with the 12″ vertical multimedia screen. The new 9.3″ Head Up Display, projected through the windscreen, adds to the total number of screens on board.

The self-regulating brightness and optimised reflective qualities have made it possible to rid the OpenR screen of its traditional sun visor. This gives a greater sense of space and make the dash feel appear as if it were floating.

The All-New Austral also features the cruising console. Sleek and modern in style, it creates a subtle divide between the driver and front passenger. It also houses a streamlined hand rest that makes using the multimedia screen more comfortable. The console includes a phone slot with inductive charging capabilities and practical everyday storage.

PLATFORM AND ENGINES: LESS CO2, MORE TO ENJOY

The All-New Renault Austral is the first Renault model to benefit from what the Alliance’s new CMF-CD next generation platform has to offer. The brand-new CMF-CD platform heralds in a complete overhaul of the compact and high-end segment line-ups for the Alliance’s international brands.

The All-New Austral chassis comes in two versions: flexible torsion beam for two-wheel steering models and a multi-link rear axle with 4CONTROL Advanced for four-wheel steering.

The four-wheel steering model has turning circle measuring 10.1 metres. Handling for the All-New Austral on urban roads is similar to that of a city car. It is unrivalled by others in the segment.

The body on the All-New Austral has been made more rigid, the anti-roll enhanced and the chassis made lighter yet sturdier for the best comfort/efficiency/responsiveness ratio on the market.

The best engines in terms of fuel efficiency and emissions

The All-New Renault Austral benefits from a range of innovative powertrains with a selection of electrified motors to cover all uses without having to change ones driving habits: the latest generation of E-TECH Hybrid motors on a 400V network for up to 200 hp, and two petrol engines: a 130 HP 48V Mild Hybrid Advanced and a 140 HP / 160 HP 12V Mild Hybrid.
