Renault confirms pricing for Wind coupe-roadster

1 April 2010 - Overcast skies might have temporarily replaced the spring sunshine, but there is a glimmer of summer on the horizon as Renault releases pricing and specification details for its Wind Coupé-Roadster, priced from £15,500. With its quick-folding roof, the new Wind Coupé-Roadster is capable of taking the indifferent British climate in its stride all-year round. In 12 seconds, the single-piece roof can be rotated through 180 degrees to let in the sun's rays, or more likely, to protect against more frequent downpours.

The chic new two-seater will be available to pre-order later in April in exclusive, range-topping 'Collection' limited edition guise, of which just 200 will find their way to the UK. Customer ordering for the rest of the range, Dynamique and Dynamique S, opens in May, ahead of first deliveries in July.

Two petrol engines are available, the 133 hp 16-valve 1.6 from Twingo Renaultsport, or the 1.2 TCe 100.

The entry-level Dynamique offers ABS with EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution), front and lateral driver and passenger airbags, brake assist, ESC, immobiliser and electric retracting hard top roof. Moving up the range to the likely best-seller, Dynamique S adds 2x35W radio CD MP3 reader with fingertip remote control, 17' alloy wheels, auto lights and wipers, Thatcham category 1 alarm, Bluetooth connectivity and multi-functional TunePoint (USB connection).

Completing the launch line-up for Renault's new compact convertible is the limited edition Collection, offering additional luxury and style for the discerning buyer both inside and out. Its equipment tally includes electrically adjustable and heated chrome effect door mirrors, carbon black leather-faced heated seats, gloss black retractable roof, red and chrome dash inserts, leather sport wheel and gearknob, aluminium pedals, subtle 'Collection' side and boot badges, plus double chrome roof cover cowls.
