English — The Renault All New Austral is known to have entered the final phase of development before it was actually launched to the public.
Renault did not hesitate to reveal a series of tests on the new model that had never existed before. This is somewhat different from the attitude of the majority of manufacturers who usually tend to keep the presence of new products secret.
This is reflected in a press statement broadcast by Renault United Kingdom (UK), Wednesday (5/1/2022).
He explained that the final phase of development was mainly carried out to check the CMF-CD3 platform and the performance of power source options hybrid used.
The All New Renault Austral is known to be in the same base as the Nissan Qashqai, which was recently named the safest compact off-road car in Europe in 2021 by the NCAP version.
Renault Austral will later undergo a test called Confirmation Runs.
The manufacturer has prepared about 100 vehicles to drive up to 2 million kilometers.
That distance comprises 600,000 kilometers of public highway routes through France, Spain and Romania. While the remaining 1.4 million kilometers will be traveled on a closed track.
The trial process will involve 900 riders.
Through these tests, the manufacturer hopes to get as much data as possible on the changes implemented to the CMF-CD3 platform and the driving assistance system.
In addition, this test was also carried out to see the effectiveness of the soundproofing system and suspension dings.
Only Hybrid Engine Option
Later the Renault All New Austral will be available in two engine options, but all of them hybrid.
The first is the new generation 1,300 cc TCe engine which is paired with the system mild hybrid 12V. Second, the 1,200 cc TCe engine combined with the system mild hybrid 48V.
The presence of the second engine option is the first time in the Renault product line as a whole.
Renault said the engine options provided would set a new standard in its class with the highest power reaching 200 hp. Likewise with the aspect of suppressing exhaust emissions with a figure of 105 g CO2/km.
In terms of appearance, the body silhouette of the Renault All New Austral looks similar to the Nissan Qashqai. It’s just that there is a difference in which front face as if connected by a panel of fairly thick lines.
