Reductions in its best-selling versions include £790 off the Clio Expression 1.2

Renault has announced price reductions over much of its range.

In response to January’s two-and-a-half per cent VAT hike, customers can save up to £2300 compared with this year’s October prices.

Reductions in its best-selling versions include £790 off the Clio Expression 1.2, which will cost £10,250 from January 4, £1055 off the Mégane Dynamique 1.4 TCe – down to £17,500 - and £2050 off the Grand Espace 2.0 dCi, costing £26,550.

Renault’s top of the range Laguna Coupé GT dCi gets the company’s biggest reduction from £30,800 to £28,500, a saving of £2300 off its former list price.

As well as its pricing revisions, Renault will also increase the spec-list on some models, including the Laguna Coupé GT TomTom, which will feature satellite navigation as standard.

Announcing price reductions on new cars are a bit pointless as no-one will pay list for them anyway. I suppose it will encourage people into showrooms to see what bargains can be had.

This is definitely a "generate interest" press release, but as has already been said, list prices are accademic.

From what I can see, the only way manufacturers are going to get things moving is to offer decent rate or 0% finance deals.



It's all about the twisties........

I'd love to know what Renaults current sales figures are like. I can't remember the last time I saw a current shape Megane or Laguna. The new Scenic, a car I would have expected to sell well seems quite rare too.

[quote Lee23404]I'd love to know what Renaults current sales figures are like.

I guess it depends on the area... there was a similar debate on the Citroen DS3 the other day (again, I see quite a few). Maybe it's geographical, I don't know. I think the Megane is probably doing well with fleets (mainly the estate model) but Renault can't be terribly pleased with that. I don't see as many new-shape Scenic though, and when I do, it's usually the seven-seater. I think the Megane is a good-looking car, and the Modus remains fairly characterful but the sooner the rest of the range gets revamped with the new look, the better. I hardly see a Twingo in my region, either.

Desperate, or what?

Ireland has plenty of Renault models on the road as they give the best scrappage offer,and not just on ten years and older models.I believe this mass discounting is playing havoc with residual value when you come to trade in.The Laguna Coupe GT is vastly overpriced even with the new reduction.

Didn't the Laguna Coupe TomTom alreay have sat nav as standard? Think the clue is in the name!

Stunning looking car and actually not that expensive to lease.
