Renault is expanding its 24 hour internet based test drive programme for company car users, www.24drive.renault.co.uk, to include five more models following high levels of demand for the service. Company car drivers will also be amongst the first in the UK to be given exclusive test drives of the New Mégane Sport Tourer Dynamique 1.9 dCi 120 – which is one of the five – before it goes on sale in November. The programme first started with the New Mègane, then was expanded to include the Laguna Hatch Dynamique 1.9dCi 120 in July.
From 1st October, company car users will be able to choose from a selection of Renault vehicles, which will include all five of Renault’s maximum five star Euro NCAP rated cars. Renault became the first UK manufacturer to have five cars with five stars following the New Scénic’s recent success in independent Euro NCAP crash tests. In addition to the New Renault Mégane Hatch and Laguna Hatch Dynamique 1.9dCi 120, company car users will also have the choice of test driving the following:
- New Scénic Dynamique 1.9 dCi 120
- New Mégane Sport Tourer Dynamique 1.9 dCi 120
- Laguna Sport Tourer, any dCi
- New Espace, any model
- Kangoo Van, any model
In addition to the above, all Renault Business Centres will also offer the facility to test drive any Vel Satis model, Renault’s luxurious executive class vehicle.
Drivers can access the test drive programme online at www.24drive.renault.co.uk which is tailor-made for company car users who are able to choose their own make and model of car. The scheme offers drivers the option of booking the above selection of Renault vehicles for a 24-hour test drive online and collecting the car at the appointed time from their nearest Renault dealer. Test drives will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Keith Hawes, Fleet Director for Renault said; "I am delighted to announce a further expansion of this test drive service, dedicated to company car drivers, with the addition of five more Renault cars.
"The success of this scheme has enabled Renault to offer an expanded range of vehicles to company car users, giving them even more scope to make an informed decision when it comes to choosing their next fleet vehicle and enforcing Renault’s commitment to providing the highest quality of customer service."Published 11 October 2003
