MUSCAT: Suhail Bahwan Automobiles, the exclusive importers and distributors of Renault vehicles in Oman, unveiled their most anticipated vehicle recently – The 2015 Renault Fluence.

The 2015 Fluence features a new look with the 1.6 16V 115 CVT X-Tronic automatic gearbox and the 2.0 16V 140 CVT X-Tronic automatic gearbox.

Fitted with a new petrol engine that is powerful and dynamic (117hp and 156Nm), Fluence sparks with energy. With the CVT X-Tronic next-generation automatic gearbox, the 2.0 16V 140 combines responsiveness and low fuel consumption. CVT technology – Continuously Variable Transmission – allows for smooth gear shifting with instant responses and no bumps. The new Fluence is comfortable, dynamic and lively with low fuel consumption.

Customers purchasing the Renault Fluence 1.6l or 2.0l vehicle will be entitled to receive free registration, free periodic maintenance service up to two years/30,000km (whichever comes first), free unlimited warranty period of up to six years, AAA road side assistance card and a cash gift of RO750.

With its flowing and modern lines, the 2015 Renault Fluence features new, confident and more dynamic frontal design identity. Inside, the cabin carries over the major themes of the previous version but delivers finishes that are more sophisticated and a more high-tech ambience.

The redesigned front end enhances the new Fluence’s unique character which takes its inspiration from the Renault F1 and the aerodynamics of the F1 cars. The focal point at the front is a prominent logo set vertically to a gloss black and chrome strips background. Meanwhile, the new Renault Fluence’s curvier lines and full surfaces ensure a more dynamic, assertive stance, underlining the model’s status-enhancing look.

The other exterior features include LED lights that enhance the overall appeal of the rear of the vehicle. To exalt the design of the Fluence, the vehicle comes with 17” Akihiro two tone alloy wheels in the LE version.

The reassuring side panels favour fluid, energetic lines. The design of the front bumper is bolder, with a large lower air intake that broadens towards the base: fog lights set against a gloss black surround have the effect of visually widening this lower intake, giving the front a sporty touch. Finally, wheel arch openings that are two centimetres tighter than on the previous version provide the 2015 Fluence with an even more dynamic allure. The insides of the headlamp units have been reworked in order to convey a more expressive and more upmarket effect. The headlight module is equipped with a lens, which concentrates the beam of light and ensures superb quality illumination at night. The metal-effect ‘eyelid’ and dark-coloured headlight mask add further depth to New Renault Fluence’s look.

The higher-end equipment levels are distinguished by the addition of a series of gloss black trim features, as well as bright-effect chrome.

The new Renault Fluence is packed with high-end technologies designed to make driving simpler. The principal instrument inside the cabin incorporates a large round LCD screen, the main function of which includes a digital speed display and the white segments around the circumference of the LCD screen indicate the settings of the cruise control and the speed limiter systems. The multimedia functions on the new Renault Fluence include hands free mobile phone connectivity and audio streaming music with Bluetooth or with USB/Jack connection.

The 2015 Renault Fluence also offers a range of driver-assistance technologies, including the hands-free key card for no-touch locking and unlocking of doors, as well as push-button ignition in LE version. On the higher equipment level, the parking assist system of the new Fluence features four rear-parking sensors neatly integrated into the rear bumper. Another intelligent feature is the automatic parking brake, which applies itself as soon as the ignition is turned off and released once the engine is running again.
