JOINS the likes of the Vauxhall Meriva and Fiat Idea in the ranks of supermini-based small MPVs, with Clio underpinnings and engines. Looks interesting enough to make an impression and comes with Renault’s super-frugal 1.5-litre common-rail diesel. Cornering headlights with xenon gas discharge, satellite navigation, six-CD autochanger and an integrated bicycle rack will be available.
Most of the changes to the 2005 model year Primera are under the skin with numerous quality improvements inside as well as improved specification and upgrades to the Birdview DVD satellite navigation and ‘plug and go’ integrated mobile phone wiring. The latest Primera is also more enjoyable to drive with new suspension components and more responsive steering.
