DAB Radio is now standard on most Renault Clio and Captur models

Article by Andrew Christian, on November 11, 2015

Buyers of the new Renault Clio and Captur will be able to take advantage of certain spec upgrades. All Clio and Captur models with either the MediaNav or R-Link infotainment systems will feature DAB radio as standard equipment.

This excludes the entry level versions of the Renault Clio and Captur, since these base models are without MediaNav or R-Link infotainment systems. With the addition of DAB radio, drivers and passengers alike could now tune in to more radio stations while on a trip.

The good news doesn’t stop there. Renault has also made available upgraded versions of the MediaNav and R-Link. Upgrades for the Medianav system include the addition of features like Bluetooth streaming and TMC traffic information, as well as SIRI “Eyes-Free” for compatible iPhones.

Upgrades for the R-Link system include the integration of a clearer and more sensitive touchscreen, which now allows certain multi-touch gestures like ‘pinch to zoom’. On the other hand, Renault has endowed the available Dynamique S Nav trim with a fresh-look leather steering wheel and grey upholstery.

The French carmaker also renamed the Clio Expression+ trim level as Clio ‘Play’ to bring it in line with Renault Twingo. Despite the renaming, the Clio remains available in five trim levels and in two petrol and one diesel engines.

Moreover, customers can still personalize their Clio models with elements like colored 16- and 17-inch alloy wheels, exterior and interior colored touch packs and GT Line look pack.

They can also avail of accessory packs like the sporty Spoiler Pack or the carbon-look Styling Pack. The Touring Pack features parking sensors while the Touring Pack comes with a quick-release tow bar. The Clio has a starting price of £11,145.

On the other hand, the Captur remains available in four trim levels and in two petrol and two diesel engines. This compact crossover from Renault features a base price of £14,295.

Captur is considered as the best-selling compact crossover in Europe in the year to date. Renault had sold more than 416,000 Captur units since its launch in 2013 until the end of August this year.

The updated R-Link system has a new, clearer and more sensitive screen, allowing multi-touch gestures such as ‘pinch to zoom’.
