Renault secures three-year RED Driving School deal for Clio
The cars, which are being supplied through Renault’s finance arm – RCI Banque – will be offered direct to instructors on 18-month finance deals that could, says Renault, save them around £240 a month.
The Clio Expression+ will be offered in either the turbodiesel dCi 90 or petrol TCe 90 engines with dual controls fitted and will be supplied in three paintwork finishes – Flame Red, Diamond Black and Glacier White – to match RED’s corporate colours.
Ian McIntosh, chief executive at RED, said: “We found the Clio to be an excellent training and tuition car. On top of that, the industry-leading finance rates we are able to offer instructors means the Clio could offer them significant cost savings too.”
Darren Payne, sales director, Renault UK, said: “We are thrilled that one of the UK’s largest and most successful driving schools has committed itself to the Clio in this way, recognising the model’s outstanding all-round appeal.
“This deal is particularly pleasing as it means thousands of drivers a year will have their first driving experience behind the wheel of a Renault. This is a fantastic advert for our brand and will help us win over the next generation of Renault drivers,” added Payne.
