PARIS – June 11, 2013: The integrated Renault R-Link multimedia tablet is now available for the Mégane range and Latitude, following on from its introduction on the New Renault Scénic and Scénic Xmod a few weeks ago.

The fully connected Renault R-Link system provides a link between the vehicle and our connected world.

Renault R-Link offers the full range of multimedia functionalities, including navigation, audio, telephony with Bluetooth® and audio streaming, as well as connectivity for mobile devices in 26 different languages. It also features vehicle-related services and access to the Renault R-Link Store, which boasts more than 50 applications (depending on market) that can be downloaded from the vehicle.

Users can access all the functions through a large seven-inch (18cm) touch screen display that is both user-friendly and intuitive. Voice commands allow users to easily activate some of the functions (nine languages available). Meanwhile, the Text To Speech (TTS) function automatically reads out information and RSS feeds associated with some of the apps while the vehicle is on the move.

On the Mégane range and Latitude, a joystick control located on the centre console adds to the other system controls.

With around 50 apps available from launch (depending on market), Renault R-Link features news apps (mainstream or specialising in travel, sport, women’s interest, etc.), vehicle-related apps (Renault Assistance, e-guide [interactive owner’s manual]), as well as community apps, e-mail and social networks. The R-Link Store catalogue will be expanded quickly.

R-Link is available as optional or standard equipment, depending on model and equipment level, for:

  • New Renault Clio (Hatch, Estate and R.S.)
  • Renault ZOE
  • Renault Captur
  • Renault Mégane range (excluding Coupé-Cabriolet)
  • Renault Scénic Xmod, New Scénic and New Grand Scénic
  • Renault Fluence
  • Renault Laguna Collection 2013 (Hatch, Estate and Coupé)
  • Renault Latitude
  • New Renault Kangoo, Kangoo Express and Kangoo Z.E.
  • Gradual rollout of the R-Link system will continue across the entire Renault range.
