A 191 sales event will be taking place across all Renault dealerships from November 8-10, 2018, providing more information on Renault’s 191 offers.

Renault says that 191 offers are available through Renault’s own bank, Renault Bank, offering customers lower interest rates and further savings versus high street commercial banks. A Renault Bank branch is available in all 26 Renault dealerships.

Renault adds that it has responded to the latest WLTP regulations with an exciting new line-up for 2019. Featuring even more generous equipment levels and powerful new petrol and diesel engines, Renault says its 2019 range brings more luxury and increased driving pleasure to Irish motorists.

For electric vehicle drivers, Renault has made some changes to the Zoe line-up, with the Z.E. 40 long-range battery now standard across the range, starting at just €24,990 for the Expression R90, with R-Link navigation and heat pump climate control as standard. The Zoe is also available at dealerships for a 24-hour test drive.

The Renault Clio has been updated for 2019 with an all-turbo engine range. The 0.9 TCe engine comes in 75hp and 90hp formats, offering a big improvement in performance, fuel consumption and road tax compared to the previous 1.2 16V engine. Clio prices start from just €16,390.

For 2019, the Captur features a new line-up of trim levels. Renault says it is committed to making customers’ lives easier, and the equipment levels on the Captur’s Play, Iconic and GT Line versions embody that commitment. The Captur is powered by a range of efficient petrol and diesel engines, the 0.9 TCe 90 and 1.5 dCi 90. The Captur comes with alloy wheels, air conditioning and Bluetooth connectivity on all versions, while the range still starts at just €20,290.

For 2019, the Mégane’s 1.5 dCi diesel engine is updated to 115hp and Renault says it has also introduced a new 1.3 TCe petrol engine, producing 140hp in most variants. These new engines are available across the range of the Mégane Hatch, the Sport Tourer and the Grand Coupé bodystyles.

The Mégane’s performance is complemented by a high level of equipment on the new Play, Iconic and GT Line trim levels. Each version includes a seven inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, climate control and alloy wheels across the board. For 2019, the Mégane range begins at €22,140.

Both the Kadjar and Scénic ranges will also feature the new 1.3 TCe petrol engine. Diesel versions of the Kadjar will feature the upgraded 1.5 dCi 115 engine, while the Scénic will feature a brand new 1.7 dCi engine.

Renault says that its 2019 line-up and pricing will be announced later this month for the Kadjar and the Scénic, while updated versions of Renault’s Koleos SUV will be announced in early 2019. Renault dealerships currently have great deals available on a limited supply of the 2018 model.

The all-new Dacia Duster is set to be in high demand in January 2019, and with the previous model selling well over 10,000 units here, the indications so far are very strong with 191 orders flooding in, according to Renault.

Renault adds that the all-new Dacia Duster is as robust and spacious as ever and, whether customers choose a petrol or a diesel version, it’s more comfortable and refined than any Dacia before. Prices start at just €17,390.

The Sandero, priced at €10,990 and the Logan MCV, priced at €12,490 make for affordable choices.
