Renault celebrates their F1 return with the Fluence Formula Edition

Welcome back to F1 Renault, here's a spiffed up Fluence to celebrate the occasion

Say hello to the Renault Fluence Formula Edition, the car was designed to celebrate the return of the Formula One Renault team this year. This is probably TC Euro Cars’ kick off to celebrate the Formula One festival that will be coming to town in September.

Available in two base colours, Black Metallic and White Pearl, the Fluence Formula Edition is easy to spot as the car has been spiffed up with customised blue and red coloured decals across the sides. To make it even more distinctive, Renault has added a five-piece body kit, a muffler cutter and two-toned black alloy wheels.

On the inside, the Formula Edition features exclusive gloss black trims across the dash and leather seats dyed in maroon instead of black.

Under the hood, the Renault Fluence Formula Edition is powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine that is mated to a CVT X-Tronic automatic gearbox. The engine produces a max power of 145bhp at 6000rpm and a peak torque of 195Nm at 3750rpm.

Other specs in the Formula Edition includes the Renault R-Link multimedia system and seven-inch touch screen display with in-built navigation, Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and ASR (a.k.a traction control) and six airbags.

TCEC tagged the Fluence Formula Edition with a RM126,688 (on the road without insurance) pricetag and is offering the car with a five-year full manufacturer’s warranty with unlimited mileage. Customers will also get a 5inFluence package in addition to the five-year manufacturer’s warranty.

The 5inFluence package ensures that owners get a hassle free experience by offering up free maintenance for five years or up to 100,000km deal, one year genuine parts warranty, complimentary pick-up service for every scheduled servicing and a 48-hour Mobility Solution which provides the owner with a courtesy car when their Fluence is detained at the workshop.
