Renault is extending the local Fluence line-up with the inclusion of a new Dynamique 2.0-litre sedan fitted with Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), which is the third and final variant in the 2013 model’s line-up.
According to Renault, the addition of CVT to the new Fluence offers fast acceleration, quieter running and a seamless shifting experience, which Renault hopes will set it apart from the traditionally conservative C-segment sedan category.

The range topping Fluence Dynamique has been styled in line with the sedan’s new look for 2013 and boasts a dynamic front-end revamp which showcases Renault’s new brand identity.

Acceleration from 0-100km/h takes 10.1 seconds, and has a top speed of 195 km/h. Combined fuel consumption is claimed at 7.7-litres/100km.
For 2013, the new Fluence Dynamique range boasts high value features which include cruise control with speed limiter, LED daytime running lights, lumbar setting on both driver & front passenger seats, an 18-inch touch screen with Tom-Tom navigation, and an Arkamys audio system.
