Renault Fluence range adds CVT option

Renault Fluence

The Renault Fluence line-up is expanding 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 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.

Renault Fluence Dynamique CVT offers more zest

The range-topping Renault 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.

Petrol powered, like its two siblings, the Dynamique CVT is equipped with a 2.0-litre 16V engine producing 103kW of power at 6000 rpm and 195Nm of torque at 3700 rpm. 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 Renault 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.

Safety features include six airbags, ABS, EBA, EED and ESP, and Isofix child fastening systems.
