£500 cashback until March 31st 2016

Renault has rejoined Formula 1 and invited enthusiasts to “fuel” a passion for motoring with £500 cashback to spend on fuel for the Clio, Captur and Kadjar. Drivers must commit by March 31st 2016; by which point the team will have finished the first race of the year.

Renault Clio overview

2016 Renault Clio

The Clio is a supermini class vehicle so it is externally compact, easy to manoeuvre in tight spaces and cost effective. It is a capable town car, in other words. This 5-door hatchback also comfortably seats 4 and its cargo capacity is a pleasing 300-litres.

Power options include the: 1.2-litre 75hp petrol, 1.2-litre 120hp petrol, 1.6-litre 200hp petrol, 1.6-litre 220hp petrol and the 1.5-litre 90hp diesel. 0-62mph times vary from 6.6 to 14.5 seconds, average fuel consumption from 47.9mpg to 88.3mpg, and carbon emissions – that define the price of road tax - from 82 to 135g/km.

The Expression is the entry-level trim and has: cruise control, hill-start assist to prevent it rolling backward on slopes, and stability control. The top-spec Renaultsport Nav Trophy, in contrast, also has: climate control, a reversing camera and sharper handling. Some Clio models come with 0% APR representative finance.

Renault Captur overview

2016 Renault Captur

The Renault Captur is a compact, crossover class, car so blends rugged, off-road, styling with the low running costs more associated with a family vehicle. Expect 5 doors, 5 seats and a 455-litre cargo capacity which can increased to 1,235-litres by folding the rear bench flat. Renault has 0% APR finance offers too. 

Captur engines include the: 0.9-litre 90hp petrol, 1.2-litre 120hp petrol, 1.5-litre 90hp diesel and the 1.5-litre 110hp diesel. 0-62mph times range from 10.6 to 13.8 seconds, average fuel consumption from 50.4 to 78.5mpg, and emissions from 95 to 127g/km.

The Expression+ is the entry-level version and has: air-conditioning, cruise control, key-less entry and automatic wipers and lights. The top-end Signature Nav adds: part leather heated seats, traction control, satellite navigation, plus mud/snow tyres. 

Renault Kadjar overview

2016 Renault Kadjar

The Kadjar is a larger crossover vehicle that, in certain forms, has 4-wheel-drive. Boot capacity is 472-litres rising to an estate-like 1,478-litres with the rear bench folded flat into the spacious cabin. Some finance plans come with the representative APR of 5.9%.

Power comes via a 1.2-litre, 130hp, petrol engine or a 1.5-litre, 110hp, diesel. 0-62mph times vary from 9.9 to 11.9 seconds, fuel consumption from 48.7 to 74.3mpg, and emissions from 99 to 130g/km.
