Renault’s international growth continues with the expansion of its SUV range in South America
- The Koleos and the Captur arrive in South America
- Brazilians get a chance to discover the Kwid show car
- Renault’s new 1.0 SCe and 1.6 SCe engines combine advanced technology with record low fuel consumption
Following the launch of the Kaptur in Russia in March, Renault continues to expand on the international SUV market – a segment that has practically doubled in the space of just two years in South America – with the introduction of three SUVs (the Kwid, Captur and Koleos) at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show (November 8-20). Also on display at the Brazilian exhibition are Renault’s new 1.0-litre SCe and 1.6-litre SCe engines.
In addition to their designs, which have proved extremely popular with customers since their respective launches, these three models pack a comprehensive raft of technologies which Renault is seeking to make affordable for all, from advanced connectivity solutions and large multimedia displays, to hands-free controls, traction control, hill start assist, hands-free entry, four airbags, etc.
Meanwhile, the 1.0 SCe and 1.6 SCe engines bring new technology to their classes, including a double overhead camshaft (DOHC) and ESC, plus fuel consumption savings of approximately 20 percent.
Fabrice Cambolive (CEO, Renault do Brasil):
“These three new SUVs are key to our growth strategy in Brazil. They incorporate Renault’s new global visual brand identity and bring advanced connectivity to facilitate the lives of our customers.”
