The car is a reworked version of Kengo, but with a significantly increased price tag. Despite the three-pointed star and rich decoration with equipment sales are not impressive. In total, 5,953 vehicles were sold, and the original “heel” was sold in more than 20,000 copies.

The previously proposed OM607 turbodiesel (Renault 1.5 dCi engine) was retired, and was replaced by a revised version of the OM608. The engine now complies with environmental standards Euro-6, power increased to 95 horsepower and 230 Nm of torque. In tandem with him is offered a “mechanic” on six steps.

As an option is offered a stylistic package Red Design Package. The package includes a special red stripe around the perimeter of the car. Having paid in addition, the client will also receive chrome lining on the grille, additional strips on the doors, as well as chrome on the fifth door.

New cars are expected to be on sale in the coming months.
