A modern front end with the Renault brand identity
The All-New Express has a new, more assertive front face, including a ribbed bonnet, and vertical
bumper and grille. It reflects the characteristic style of the Renault Brand as seen in the C-Shape
LED lighting signature and the emblematic dog-leg chrome grill. The powerful dual-optic lamps
feature high-beams and low-beams that are now 90% and 60% brighter respectively.
A fluid side design
The wings, front doors, and sliding side door have been designed with flowing lines for a smooth
curved finish. The door’s rectangular design makes the interior space easily accessible. The sturdy
horizontal door handles seamlessly merge with the surface and can be painted in body colour.
Some design features are more functional, such as the door sill protectors, while others, such as
the 15” and 16” aluminium wheels, are more about looks. Side mirrors provide wide field of vision.
Bonnet aerodynamics have been reworked to enhance airflow and optimise fuel efficiency.
Fewer visible details, higher quality finish
The All-New Express has a sleek design. At the front, the raised bonnet line hides the windscreen
wipers, spray nozzles, and hinges. The front hitch ring has been built into the fog light cover. Door
key holes have been removed for added security and anti-theft protection With the three-button
key, the side and rear doors can be unlocked independently of the front doors.
Appreciate your combispace for its style
The All-New Express is launched with its own unique hue: Iron Blue. It is also available in metallic
Highland Grey and Pearl Black, or solid Glacier White and Urban Grey.
Like the exterior, the interior has a modern design with a user-friendly horizontal dashboard.
The seats provide excellent support for optimum driving comfort and less driver fatigue.
The upholstery is reinforced because the All-New Express is built to last.
A streamlined look
The interior comes with a modern horizontal dashboard with clean lines that highlight the vehicle’s
roominess. The decorative brushed aluminium trim lights up the interior. Chrome accents on the
dashboard, steering wheel, climate controls, gear stick, and interior door handles highlight the AllNew Express’ modern yet functional design.
An ergonomic driving position
The All-New Express interior is all about comfort with seats that include extra side support for the
chest and shoulders, and modern headrests. The driver can easily and gradually alter the height
(+/- 40 mm) and length (+/- 110 mm) of their seat as well as the height of the seatbelt and steering
wheel. For even greater driving comfort, the driver’s seat is available with an armrest.
Did you know?
The All-New Renault Express is built like a true utility vehicle with tried-and-tested reliability and
robustness. Materials used in the cockpit were tested and chosen for their long-lasting resilience
to everyday wear and tear.
Durability tests on the All-New Express included the front doors being opened and closed 150,000
times, and 120,000 cycles for the sliding side and rear doors.
The All-New Express does not compromise on dimensions. Its dimensions are best-inclass: 800 L boot space, 716 mm sliding side door opening. Practical and modular, much
thought went into the 54 litres of storage compartments and five full-sized seats.
The largest boot on the market
The All-New Express boasts the boasts the most storage space on the market, such as its 800-litre
boot. Without a cargo cover and with the rear bench seat folded, the storage area can reach up to
For added convenience, the rear storage area of the All-New Express can be equipped with a
divider net, which proves useful when transporting animals or numerous items of luggage to keep
them out of the passenger section. It can be mounted behind the rear bench seat, or behind the
driver and front passenger seats. A rubber floor mat can also be installed in the rear compartment;
washing the boot is a breeze.
The best side door opening
Getting in and out and loading/unloading the All-New Express is made easier thanks to its extralarge door measurements. The 716 mm sliding side door and 1,189mm long usable floor space
(luggage area behind the rear bench seats) are the biggest on the market.
Five full-sized seats and a 2/3–1/3 folding bench seat for more modularity
The All-New Express guarantees space and comfort for all its passengers with its five full-sized
seats, three of which are in the second row and can be folded down and removed. The rear seats
can be folded down either 1/3, 2/3, or completely, for extra cargo space while still having room for
1 or 2 rear passengers. Because the All-New Express was design with families in mind, the rear
seats are equipped with three Isofix systems so that up to three child seats can be installed sideby-side.
Lots of storage, right where you need it
With more than 54 litres of storage, everything drivers and passengers need can be stored inside
the passenger compartment. Life on board is made that bit easier thanks to the seventeen different

Multimedia equipment on the All-New Express is three-fold: the Connect R&Go radio, and
the Renault EASY LINK multimedia system (8” touch-screen and smartphone mirroring)
either with or without navigation. It also includes a smart phone induction charger, up to
three USB sockets and four 12V sockets, one of which is in the boot.
A triple-option multimedia system
Equipped with the Connect R&Go radio, the All-New Express includes an 8” touch-screen (colour,
landscape) when fitted with the Renault EASY LINK multimedia system with four speakers and two
tweeters guaranteeing optimum acoustics.
Voice recognition compatible, it can run either Android Auto or Apple CarPlay via cable plug-in so
you can enjoy your favourite apps via smart phone mirroring to send and receive text messages,
make calls, listen to music, and use Google Voice and SIRI voice assistants, all while still abiding
road rules and without taking any risks.
The 2D/3D navigation option facilitates guidance, helping with intersection localisation and the like.
It uses an internal gyroscope to help guidance even without a GPS signal.
NB: The Connect R&Go radio harnesses the power of Bluetooth and the R&Go app to give you
access to vehicle and radio features via your smartphone in an intuitive, user-friendly way.
Useful technologies, up to seven sockets on-board
Going above and beyond industry standard, the All-New Express comes with three USB sockets,
making life that little bit easier. One USB port is located on the radio faceplate and two in the storage
compartment above the steering wheel. In addition, there are four 12 V sockets, one of which is in
the boot. The All-New Express includes a 15 W induction charger so you can still charge your
phone while you use its apps
Steering control, on-road stability, better grip, effortless hill-starts… the All-New Express
comes kitted with an array of driver-assistance systems for greater peace of mind and added
safety behind the wheel. The All-New Express comes with up to six air bags for optimum
safety: one driver, one front passenger, two side-impact, and two curtain bags.
More serene driving
– The All-New Express features Electronic Stability Control (ESC), which helps keep the vehicle on
course. It helps keep the vehicle under control despite dangerous road conditions such as when
avoiding an obstacle, losing grip around a bend, etc.
– The All-New Express also features Hill Start Assist, which combines with the ESC to keep the
vehicle stationary for approximately two seconds when the gradient is greater than 3%. Brakes are
then gradually released.
– Extended Grip (with all-weather tires) improves traction when taking off or driving at low speeds on
soft, low-grip surfaces (hard sand, snow, damp soil, etc). Active up to 50 km/h, it helps drivers
maintain speed and direction instead of slipping or digging in the wheels.
– For added safety on city roads and highways, and for stress free speed limits, the All-New Express
features Cruise Control and Speed Limiter technology that is easily accessible via buttons on the
– And there’s more: the Blind Spot Warning alerts the driver when another vehicle is right in the blind
spot while driving. Active from 30 – 140 km/h, it uses four motion sensors to cover both sides of
the vehicle. It detects other vehicles, including motorcycles and trucks.
– Another feature worth mentioning is the Trailer Stability Assist. Connected to the ESC, the system
reduces trailer sway, without limiting driving speed, and improves handling in difficult conditions
caused by crosswinds or road conditions.
Easier parking manoeuvres
– The Front / Rear Park Assist helps with tricky manoeuvres by audibly indicating an obstacle’s
proximity when it is between 1.2 m and 30 cm. Four sensors at the front and rear of the vehicle
help prevent small impacts.
– For even simpler parking manoeuvres, the All-New Express has the Reversing Camera that
displays visual feedback via the multimedia system screen, with wheel-line overlay, or on the
interior rear-view mirror, ideal for tight spaces and getting the most out of the All-New Express’
impressive 11.1m kerb-to-kerb turning circle.
The All-New Express is the only vehicle in the segment that offers a 6-speed transmission
with a 95hp diesel engine.
Intended for the international market (outside Europe), the All-New Express is marketed with the
1.5 dCi 95 diesel engine.
It is also available with the 1.6 SCe 110hp petrol engine and a 5-speed manual gearbox
NEDC mixed consumption starts at:
– 5.1L/100km (i.e., 132g CO2/km) for diesel engines
– 7.8L/100km (i.e., 181g CO2/km) for petrol engines.
Moreover, the vehicle’s Eco-Mode system can be activated via the dashboard for an additional
12% fuel savings. The ‘Gear Shift Indication’ informs the driver of when it is the best time to shift
gears, thereby saving an extra 5% in fuel.
