It also displays services associated with the vehicle’s systems and access to the R-Link Store. R-Link can be controlled using either the touchscreen display or the joystick that's next to the gear-shifter.Blind spot warning is new with a flashing light whenever a vehicle is detected alongside. Other features include a reversing camera and rear parking sensors, clutch-control assistance, gradient descent control and a Bose audio system.The cabin has comfort treats such as a chilled glove box, a removable stowage bin and cup holders, electronic parking brake, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers and cruise control. Safety gear includes six air bags, antilock brakes, emergency brake-pressure, electronic stability control and understeer control, although the all-wheel drive system is programmed to take corrective action by adjusting the front/rear torque split should over- or understeer be detected. Customers can order the car in either two or all-wheel drive. Its off-road ability in 4x4 guise can be used in one of three modes: auto, lock or 2WD. No prices yet, says Renault.
