Renault Clio, Twingo, Megane prices slashed

The new entry-level price for the popular supermini represents a cut of £1,000 over the previous lowest-price version, says the French car maker.

With the new ’61’ plates due to come into effect in September, Renault has introduced the Pzaz range to the three- and five-door Clio as well as the Twingo city car and the Megane hatchback.

For the Clio, the new Pzaz model comes with a 1.2-litre 75hp engine which it shares with the Twingo Pzaz.

Three-door Renault Clio Pzaz cars cost £7,995 while five-door versions are priced at £8,595.

Although bottom-of-the-range models, all Clio Pzaz cars come with a CD player with MP3 compatibility, front electric windows and some white highlights to the interior trim.

Meanwhile, the Renault Twingo Pzaz is now the least expensive car in the Renault line up. The small city car costs £6,795 in Pzaz specification, which uses the same 1.2-litre engine as the Clio.

Boasting a similar specification level to the Clio, the Twingo Pzaz also adds a sports style front bumper to the specification despite a saving of £1,000 over the previous entry-level Twingo.

Finally, the Renault Megane hatch, one of six body styles in the small family car range, has also been given the Pzaz treatment for September and the new registration plates.

Renault has cut £1,600 off the entry-level price for the Megane hatch, bringing it down to just £9,995.

Specification includes a CDMP3 player, air conditioning and electronic stability control. Under the bonnet, a 1.6-litre 100hp petrol engine is offered with Pzaz models.

All three of the new entry-level Renault Pzaz models, the replacement for the special edition Bizu models, will be available with the new ’61’ plates in UK dealerships from September.
