There are I-Music special edition versions of the Renault Clio three-door, five-door and Sport Tourer, the Modus, Grand Modus, Kangoo, Mégane hatch, Mégane Coupé, Mégane Sport Tourer, Scénic and Grand Scénic.
They are all based on the existing Expression specification, and get their name courtesy of the standard-fit MP3 connectivity. This ranges from a simple aux-in socket on the Clio to full Multi-Function TunePoint on the other Renault models.
Each I-Music special edition also includes air conditioning, alloy wheels, front fog lights, brushed aluminium-effect door mirrors and Bluetooth.
Models that will appeal to music lovers
The Clio I-Music comes with a choice of engines: 1.2-litre 16V 75 petrol, 1.2-litre TCe 100 turbo petrol, or 1.5-litre dCi 86 turbodiesel, all three of which qualify as part of Renault’s eco2 range with emissions under 140g/km CO2. Prices start at £11,235, meaning the I-Music represents up to £600 in savings.
The Modus and Grand Modus I-Music are available from £11,895, and also represent a £600 customer saving. Both offer a choice of 1.2 16V 75 petrol and 1.5 dCi 86 turbodiesel power; the Grand Modus can also be ordered in 1.2 TCe 100 turbo petrol guise.
The Kangoo I-Music is available with 1.6 8V petrol, 1.5 dCi 86 turbodiesel or 1.5 dCi 106 turbodiesel engines. Prices start at £12,550, and the Kangoo also gets an upgraded stereo. Total customer saving compared with ordering the kit separately is £675.
Even more kit on Mégane and Scénic specials
The Mégane I-Music can be chosen with the 1.6 100 and VVT 110 petrol engines, or the 1.5 dCi 86 and 106 turbodiesels. There’s an even bigger stereo upgrade and these specials also come with rear parking sensors and 17-inch alloy wheels. Priced from £15,485, they represent a saving of up to £930.
The Scénic and Grand Scénic I-Music editions are available with 1.6 VVT, 1.4 TCe turbo and 2.0 140 CVT automatic petrol engines, or 1.5 dCi 106 and 1.9 dCi 130 turbodiesels. These also gain a stereo upgrade, 17-inch alloys and rear parking sensors. Starting at £15,995, they are £750 cheaper than an equivalently equipped Expression.
All I-Music special edition Renaults are available to order now and will be available in December.
