Renault decided to continue the Symbol success with a new generation of the small car sedan. The new Symbol will be launched at this year Istanbul Motor Show, showcasing the new identity of the brand.
As is the case with all the brand’s new models, the front logo is larger and sits in a more prominent, upright position in the middle of a wide, black, chrome-trimmed grille strip.
Capable of seating up to five adults in comfort, the new Symbol will be available with three engines. Those who would like a petrol version will have only one option: the 0.9 liter TCe engine. The 90 hp unit offers just 5.3 litres/100km, equivalent to 122g of CO2/km.
The list also includes the dCi 75 and dCi 90 diesel engines, the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of which have come down to 3.9 litres/100km and 103g/km respectively.
New Renault Symbol comes with a more extensive equipment package, including the Renault Media Nav multimedia navigation system complete with a wide, seven-inch touchscreen colour display. Meanwhile, USB and Bluetooth connectivity enables occupants to enjoy music stored on portable players and to make or take telephone calls in total safety. The specification also includes cruise control with speed limiter, while modularity is enhanced by the 60/40-split folding rear bench seat.
The new Symbol comes with a three year or 100.000 km warranty and it will be available on sale in January 2013.
