RENAULT has finalised prices for its new Symbioz mid-size SUV and confirmed, as promised, that it will start from less than £30k.

Three trim options are available, all of which come with Renault's E-Tech full hybrid 145 power train, with the entry-level techno E-tech model costing £29.295, the mid-range techno esprit Alpine £31,295 and the flagship iconic esprit Alpine priced at £33,295.

Positioned between the Captur and Austral models, the Symbioz expands the Renault offering at the entry level of the C-segment and rounds out the full-hybrid E-Tech family of Arkana and Austral, alongside the E-Tech Megan and Scenic electric models.

The E-Tech powertrain combines a 39 kW electric motor with a 95 bhp, 1.6-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine and a 1.2 kWh battery, driving through a six-speed auto transmission and offering a top speed of 110mph with acceleration from 0-62mph in 10.6 seconds. Fuel consumption is quoted as 60.1 mpg with CO2 emissions of 105 - 108 g/km dependent on trim level.

The entry level model comes with plenty of fitted-as-standard kit including alloys, full LED front and rear lights, automatic headlights with auto high beam, auto wipers, auto-dimming rear view mirror, heated electric folding door mirrors, automatic air conditioning, hands-free keycard with keyless access and start, a 10.4-inch touchscreen with built-in Google Automotive services including navigation, a 10.25-inch digital driver display and a wireless smartphone charger.

Safety equipment includes distance warning alert, active emergency braking system with pedestrian and cyclist detection, driver attention alert, adaptive cruise control with speed limiter, front and rear detection with emergency lane keep assist including solid line, oncoming traffic and road edge detection and a rear view camera.

The mid-range model adds such niceties as a powered tailgate, electrically adjustable and heated front seats, blind spot warning, adaptive cruise control with lane centering assist and rear cross traffic /pedestrian alert with braking assistance.

Buyers opting for the flagship model can also expect a glass sunroof, 360 degree 3D camera, hands free parking and a premium sound system.

All versions boast boot space of up 624 litres and a rear seat that slides by 16 cm, creating a flat floor when fully folded.

Dealers have already opened the order books for the new Symbioz and the first customers should get their cars in September.
