Renault reveals name of new C-Segment SUV

Symbioz will be revealed in spring 2024


Renault has unveiled the name of its upcoming C-segment compact family SUV: Symbioz. Reflecting Renault's new design language, Symbioz integrates driving pleasure, spacious interiors, and the fuel efficiency of the E-Tech full hybrid 145 engine. As the latest addition to Renault's C-segment lineup, Symbioz is part of a range of vehicles crafted to meet diverse customer needs. The official reveal of Renault Symbioz is scheduled for spring 2024.

Derived from the French 'symbiose,' echoing the ancient Greek 'symbiosis' meaning 'living together,' Symbioz embodies Renault's core value of "cars for living." The name is easily understood across languages, such as 'symbiosis' in English, 'simbiose' in Spanish, and 'simbiosi' in Italian.

Symbioz, showcasing Renault's new brand design, is the most compact hybrid in the C-segment range, measuring just 4.41m in length. The interior prioritizes family comfort with ample space and loading capacity. It incorporates cutting-edge Renault technology, including the Solarbay panoramic glass roof based on PDLC technology and the E-Tech full hybrid 145 hp engine, contributing to both driving pleasure and reduced fuel consumption.

Renault continues its strong presence in the C-segment by offering a variety of vehicles tailored to different customer preferences. The lineup includes electric and hybrid models, such as the E-Tech electric Mégane (4.20m) and Scénic (4.47m), as well as the E-Tech full hybrid Symbioz (4.41m), Austral (a premium SUV at 4.51m), and Arkana (a dynamic SUV coupé at 4.56m).
