Renault has announced that it is upgrading the MediaNav or R-Link infotainment systems present in their Clio and Captur models. The automaker has also stated that the Clio trim level will be renamed to align with the Twingo range.
The upgrade makes DAB radio standard on all Clio and Captur models fitted with the above mentioned infotainment systems. The obvious benefit of this upgrade is the choice of more radio stations. In addition to DAB the MediaNav system also gets Bluetooth streaming, TMC traffic information and SIRI “Eyes-Free” functionality for compatible iPhones. The R-Link system on the other hand gains a more sensitive touchscreen that now supports multi-touch gestures such as ‘pinch and zoom’.
The Renault Clio Dynamique S Nav trim has been lavished with grey upholstery and new leather-wrapped steering wheel for the interior. The Clio Expression+ variant has been renamed as ‘Play’ to bring it in line with the smaller Twingo city car.
The Clio is available in five trims and despite the upgrades still has the same starting price of £11,145. The Captur offered in a total of four trims also retains the previous starting price tag of £14,295.
