Renault Austral E-Tech: hybrid reimagined for your lifestyle
Renault has completely reimagined their hybrid powertrain, in the process creating an SUV like no other in the Renault range. 100% hybrid but with no compromises, the all new Renault Austral E-Tech full hybrid offers up to 683 miles^ of range without the need to ever plug in and recharge. Couple that with its distinctive styling and Renault’s cutting-edge technology, and it’s easy to see how Renault’s new full hybrid has redefined what’s possible for a family SUV.
Renault rethinks Hybrid
The E-Tech full hybrid system consists of a turbocharged petrol engine, coupled with a new e-motor and lithium-ion battery, while drive is sent through a multi-modal gearbox. With a combined power output of 200hp, the Renault Austral has all the performance you might need, but it also returns up to 60.1mpg† and emits as little as 105g/km of CO2.
Perhaps most impressively of all, the Renault Austral boasts up to 683 miles^ of range without the need to recharge the battery or refuel. Instead, charging takes place when you decelerate and brake.
Advanced technology that helps make for a safer drive
A 12-inch openR multimedia screen, along with a 12.3-inch driver display and a 9.3-inch head-up display, offers an impressive digital space and a world of control and information.
With Google built-in*, you have Google Maps, Google Play and Google Assistant which makes it easy to use your voice to control car functions like climate control, driving mode or heated seats. You can also use it to find locations, reply to messages and make calls. And with Google Play, you can download more than 50 apps.** Google built-in* will even let you interact with smart home devices, right from your car. Connected driving has never been so easy – and so full of possibility.
Moreover, the all new Renault Austral offers up to 30 advanced driver-assistance systems^^, including a head-up display, matrix-LED adaptive vision, active driving assist, adaptive cruise control***, lane-centring assist and many more, helping give you peace of mind behind the wheel whenever and wherever you drive.
And if it’s entertainment you’re after, the new Renault Austral’s Harman Kardon audio system**** can make even the most arduous journey a pleasure, thanks to its 485w of power and 12 speakers including a subwoofer.
Agility on every corner
The new Renault Austral’s 4Control Advanced**** chassis system applies the latest thinking of Renault’s engineers to help make your driving more comfortable and enjoyable – wherever you may be. With its innovative ability to guide the rear wheels in addition to the front wheels, Renault has delivered a more manoeuvrable and agile family SUV.
Below 30mph, the rear wheels steer slightly in the opposite direction to which the car is turning, reducing the overall turning circle to just 10.1m and helping to navigate narrow city streets effortlessly. Above 30mph, the rear wheels turn marginally in the same direction as the driver has steered, offering increased stability and cornering ability.
The 4Control Advanced system is incorporated into the new Austral’s Multi-Sense driver mode set-up, which offers Comfort, eco, Sport and a personal mode. These control various functions of the car, such as steering firmness, engine response and even the interior lighting ambience, adjusting the character of the car to suit your mood, situation and driving style. The personal mode allows the driver to define their own settings according to personal taste.
A flair for design
With its distinctive design, combining French flair and a powerful presence, the all new Renault Austral makes a distinct impression. Sharply styled headlights, a powerfully sculpted bonnet and haunches over the wheels achieve a sporty aesthetic. Choose from three trim lines: techno, techno esprit Alpine and iconic esprit Alpine, the latter featuring esprit Alpine badging, a front bumper with an F1 blade, 20-inch daytona alloy wheels, Alcantara fabric upholstery with blue stitching and a steering wheel with red, white & blue stitching.
