Renault cuts Twingo, Clio and Megane price
Renault has reduced the price of the Twingo, Clio and Megane by up to £1,600 in preparation for the '61' registration plates in September.
Replacing the 'Bizu' range, the new Pzaz models will be offered with all three of the popular Renault cars, bringing the entry price down by between £1,000 and £1,600.
The Twingo city car, the smallest car in the Renault line up, will now start from £6,795, a reduction of £1,000, for Twingo Pzaz models.
For the sub-£7,000 price tag, drivers get a 1.2-litre 75hp petrol engine and a basic level of equipment that includes a CD/MP3 player, electric windows and even some styling touches such as a sports front bumper.
The Renault Clio Pzaz is expected to be one of the most popular of the three because it is based on Renault's best-selling UK model.
Priced from just £7,995 for three-door and £8,595 for five-door versions, the Renault Clio Pzaz shares the same engine as the Twingo but adds some interior highlights in white.
Finally, the Renault Megane hatchback features the biggest saving in the Pzaz range. Prices have been slashed by £1,600 to just £9,995 for the new Megane Pzaz.
The engine of choice is a 1.6-litre 100hp petrol unit and the car also adds 15" wheel trims and front driver and passenger airbags.
Despite falling under £10,000, the specification also includes air conditioning, a CD/MP3 plater, electronic stability control and heated door mirrors.
Renault says the move to reduce the starting price of its three small cars means 'the brand has not lost sight of the appeal of its affordable cars, especially in the current economic climate'.
Renault hopes the new Pzaz range, designed to replace the outgoing Bizu models, will be a success as the new '61' plates are introduced to the UK from 1 September.
