Renault adds Bluetooth as accessory across range

The deal will see a Bluetooth system made available across the Renault range. The communication system allows drivers to connect with the entertainment system using their mobile phones or tablet devices using the Bluetooth connectivity system.

It also allows drivers to connect to their phones and feed audio through the car’s speakers for clearer phone calls on the move.

The hands free system has been named a Renault approved accessory as part of the deal and will be sold at official Renault dealerships such as Perrys Renault in Aylesbury.

Robert Smith, Accessories Marketing Manager, Renault UK, said: "The product has the functionality of an integrated offering and is versatile enough to fit seamlessly across our range of vehicles."

This means the technology can be built into Renault cars and vans to look like a standard accessory. Cobra has experience fitting devices into Renault cars because it already supplies the French manufacturer with parking sensors and vehicle alarm systems.

"The reputation of the NSV Bluetooth&#174 Hands Free System speaks for itself. It is a high quality product that looks and performs just like an Original Equipment system," explains Andrew Smith, Cobra UK’s Managing Director.

The technology is available in Renault’s car and van range, from the Renault Clio supermini to the British-built Renault Trafic panel van.

Renault is no stranger to teaming up with technology companies to expand the equipment levels on its car.

The brand boasts a TomTom trim level on some of its cars, including the best-selling Clio and Megane models. The TomTom specification uses a high-tech Carminat satellite navigation system as standard and generally sits at the top of the Renault car range.
