Renault is introducing a new trim level named 'E-Tech Engineered' on the Clio, Captur and Arkana. The Arkana is also receiving a series of enhancements for the 2022 model year.
The bold new E-Tech engineered trim level is available on the Clio, Captur and Arkana, forming a premium specification that is replacing the R.S. Line trim for Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid powertrains. The models feature 18-inch E-Tech engineered diamond cut alloy wheels with gold detailing (17-inch variant on Clio models), blacked out logos on the front and back, gold styling on the bumpers, rear spoiler, door sill side trims and E-Tech engineered body markings with gold detailing. On the inside the premium theme continues, with luxurious gold-stitched upholstery as well as gold detailing located on the steering wheel, gear shifter and dashboard air vents. A dark roof lining and aluminium pedals complete the look.
