Renault has extended the warranty it provides with all new cars to five years.
The new warranty applies to all new cars registered from December 18, 2019. It is also extended to cover any of the latest generation Clio models, regardless of registration date.
It said this will further boost the appeal of Renault ownership.
The five-year warranty applies to both retail and fleet customers and features an unlimited mileage limit in the first two years and up to 100,000 miles in the remaining three, and includes its electric cars.
The brand said the decision to lengthen the warranty coincides with the completion of a completely reinvigorated line-up of small cars, now that new Captur has been launched.
Vincent Tourette, managing director of Renault UK said: “I am proud that Groupe Renault UK is introducing our new five-year warranty. Renault is deeply committed to the quality and reliability of its products and this extended cover reinforces the confidence that both we and our customers have in our vehicles.
“Coming directly after the launch of all-new Clio, all-new Captur and new Zoe, this introduction arrives at an exciting new chapter for our brand.”
As before, all new Renault models will be backed by a three-year roadside assistance package with a 100,000 mile limit for ZE vehicles and Koleos, and a 60,000 mile limit for all other models.
Renault had previously provided a four-year warranty, but reduced it down to three in February 2018.
Hyundai and Toyota offer five-years and Kia's warranty extends to seven years.
Vauxhall had offered a 'lifetime' warranty but abandoned this in 2014 after it found it was “costly and ineffective”.
