Renault announces Fluence; electric model to follow


News

September 1, 2009/14.49


Renault has announced its Fluence saloon, which is meant to replace the Mégane Classic. However, if Korean readers are thinking it looks rather familiar, that’s because it is: the Fluence is, essentially, the second-generation Samsung SM3 with a new grille.
   The slightly conventional styling down the back is mated to a Mégane 3-like grille up front.
   The Fluence marks the third car in the Samsung line-up to be badged as a Renault: the first is the Koleos, which is built on the same line as the Samsung QM5; the second is the Safrane II, which is based on the previous-generation Nissan Teana, and also built in Korea.
   The Fluence launches this autumn in Turkish, Russian and Romanian markets, which are known to favour saloons. There will be four petrol and five diesel engines (with the diesels emitting less than 119 g/km of carbon dioxide), and an electric version will follow in 2011.
