A simple yet elegantly styled interior  

In the cabin, the airy facia design incorporates taut, uncluttered lines that are complemented by the sweep of the dashboard trim strip. Essential driving functions and useful accessories all fall easily to hand. They are concentrated around the steeringwheel and centre console with a view to freeing up as much space as possible and to making the car even more user-friendly.

Dynamic handling 

Renault Fluence's chassis delivers an efficient, comfortable and enjoyable ride. The aim of Renault's engineers was to combine steering and handling precision with minimal noise and vibrations. Fluence's front suspension features MacPherson-type struts with rectangular lower arms, while the rear incorporates a programmed-deflection flexible beam.


Renault Fluence also benefits from a particularly effective braking system, with large discs that provide both outstanding stopping power and durability. The electric power steering combines precise driver feedback with quick, accurate response to instructions from the wheel. It is easy to use and feels completely natural.

Engines that combine punch with fuel economy 

From launch, and depending on market, Renault Fluence will be available with a wide range of thrifty engines which are all a pleasure to drive.


  • Two petrol engines, each available in two versions:
    - 1.6 16V 110hp, with automatic transmission or manual gearbox
    - 2.0 16V 140hp, with continuously variable transmission (CVT) or manual gearbox
  • A choice of five variants of the 1.5 dCi diesel block:
    - dCi 85
    - dCi 90 DPF
    - dCi 105
    - dCi 110 DPF
    - dCi 110 DPF with the new dual clutch transmission (DCT) 

All diesel-engined versions return CO2 emissions of 119g/km and qualify for the Renault eco² environmental hallmark.
