Revealed well in advance at the Paris Air Show in June 2023, the new Renault Rafale will not arrive in dealerships until spring 2024. It has therefore already visited trade shows and events (Munich, Lyon, Rétromobile …) but the big unknown remained its price. As official marketing approaches, Renault finally gives us an idea of the range and prices.
The 4.71 m long SUV coupe is only available in a simple hybrid version at launch, the 200 hp full hybrid E-Tech already in the Austral and Espace. The Rafale (which owes its name to the Caudron-Renault plane of 1934) has only two finishes, Techno and Esprit Alpine. A reduced range therefore, and more focused on the high end. This is also the philosophy of the model, the new flagship of the range after the disappearance of the large Talisman sedan. The opening of orders will be followed by the first deliveries to customers before summer 2024.
In terms of prices, the Rafale starts at €45,000 in the Techno finish, which is exactly the same price as the Renault Espace (with identical finish) with which it shares its wheelbase and engine. The high-end version with a sportier look, the Esprit Alpine, is priced from €49,000.
The 200 hp non-rechargeable hybrid engine offered in the catalog allows the SUV to avoid any penalty, since it displays emissions of 105 grams of CO2/km, and a combined consumption of 4.7 l/100 km according to the WLTP cycle . Renault specifies that the Rafale will offer choice with a new “high performance” E-Tech 4×4 300 hp engine by the end of the year. This will benefit from an additional electric motor on the rear axle and specific chassis settings.
The standard equipment is complete from the Techno finish, since the model already has 20-inch diamond-cut rims, LED headlights, fabric and TEP sports seats, two 12-inch screens each for the digital meters and the multimedia system running under Google, front, rear and side parking assistance with reversing camera or even dual-zone automatic air conditioning. The Esprit Alpine finish stands out with its specific alloy wheels and a sportier body kit, a motorized tailgate, the 4Control Advanced rear-wheel steering system and the “ingenius” armrest.
