Tunbridge Wells-based Lifestyle Europe has been gearing up for the New Year by showcasing hotly anticipated Renault and Dacia vehicles, ahead of their 2013 launch.
“Our VIP Renault evening went fantastically well with the new models generating a great amount of customer interest,” explains James White, General Manager are Lifestyle Renault. “Our guests were given exclusive access to the brand new Renault Clio, as well as see the Renault ZOE, the most practical electric car on the market.”
The Renault Zoe, which is available from just £13,640 after Government incentives, is a 5-door hatchback that provides the equivalent of 88hp and the ability to drive up to 130 miles on a single charge. With a top speed of 84 mph, plus plenty of interior technology, the ZOE reflects the features of a conventional combustion engined vehicle. The fast-charge mode adds to its practicality, reducing a full charge from 6-9 hours to just 30 minutes. This makes it a far more appealing option for customers concerned about fuel-hungry electric vehicles.
The fourth-generation Clio, available from only £10,495, combines attractive pricing with plenty of technology, customisable options, and state-of-the-art engine. The brand new Clio’s sportier appearance and wide-array of equipment as standard makes it a hard vehicle to complete with. Even the most basic Expression model includes Bluetooth and USB functionality, cruise control, Hill Start Assist, keyless entry and ignition, and ESC and daytime running lights, as part of its extensive accessory list.
Also demonstrated last week was the brand new Dacia Duster – the first Dacia car to be sold in the UK. Breaking market convention, the new vehicle is available from only £8,995, making it the cheapest vehicle of its kind. As a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), the Duster provides a solidly built interior and exterior, with practicality and functionality being the main elements of the car’s design. The Duster is the perfect motor for an active family, as it carries up to 5 passengers and has an impressive 475 litres of boot storage.
“The introduction of Dacia to the UK brings our customers more choice than ever before,” continues James. “Until now, customers have been able to pre-order the Dacia, but have been unable to test the model until last week, when the first vehicle visited our showroom ready for demonstration. Our test-drive appointments booked out quickly, with many potential customers ordering and expressing their interest at the event.”
The Dacia Duster, Renault Clio and ZOE are all now available to order from Lifestyle Renault. For more information or to register your interest, please visit the Langton Road dealership, or see www.lifestyleeurope.co.uk for details.
