ture inside the passenger compart-

ment increases very quickly.




When you leave your vehi-

cle, especially if you have 

your RENAULT card with 

you, check that the engine 

is completely switched off.




This system enables a reduced fuel 

consumption and lower greenhouse 

gas emissions. The system is acti-

vated automatically when the vehicle is 

started. While driving, the system stops 

the engine (standby) when the vehicle 

is at a standstill (traffic jam, traffic lights, 


Conditions for engine

and the integrated warning light 2 lights 

up on the switch 1, the system is deac-


Please consult an authorised dealer.



Before getting out of the 

vehicle, you must switch 

off the ignition by pressing 

the engine stop (please see 

“Starting, stopping the engine”).

In the event of an emer-

gency, the engine can be 

restarted by pressing on the 

clutch pedal if the Stop and 

Start function is activated.

Note: With the engine on standby, 

press switch 1 to automatically re-

start the engine.



The following operating conditions:
–  driving for long periods when the low 

fuel level warning light is lit;

–  using leaded petrol;
–  using fuel or lubrication additives 

which are not approved.

Or operating faults such as:
–  faulty ignition system, running out of 

fuel or disconnected spark plugs re-

sulting in the engine misfiring or cut-

ting out when driving;

–  loss of power,
as they may cause the catalytic con-

verter to overheat and thus reduce its 

efficiency,  or damage it irreparably 

and cause heat damage to the vehi-


If you notice any of the above operating 

faults, have the necessary repairs car-

ried out as soon as possible by an ap-

proved Dealer.
These faults may be avoided by regu-

larly taking your vehicle to an approved 

Dealer at the intervals specified in the 

Maintenance document.

Starting problems

To avoid damaging the catalytic con-

verter, do not keep trying to start the 

engine (using the start button, or by 

pushing or towing the vehicle) without 

having identified and corrected the 

starting fault.
If the fault cannot be identified, do not 

keep trying to start the engine, but con-

tact an approved Dealer.

Do not park the vehicle or 

run the engine in locations 

where combustible sub-

stances or materials such as 

grass or leaves can come into con-

tact with the hot exhaust system.



Diesel engine speed

Diesel engines are fitted with an injec-

tion pump which prevents the engine 

speed being exceeded irrespective of 

the gear selected.
If the message “Check antipollution 

system” is displayed along with warn-

ing lights 




, consult an 

authorised dealer immediately. 
When driving, depending on the fuel 

grade used, it is possible that white 

smoke may be emitted.
This is due to the exhaust particle filter 

being cleaned automatically, and does 

not affect the way the vehicle runs.

Running out of fuel

If the tank has been completely 

drained, the system must be reprimed 

after the tank is refilled: see information 

on the “fuel tank” in section 1 before re-

starting the engine.

Do not park the vehicle or 

run the engine in locations 

where combustible sub-

stances or materials such 

as grass or leaves can come into 

contact with the hot exhaust system.

Precautions to be taken in 


To avoid any faults in icy weather:
–  ensure that the battery is always fully 


–  always keep the diesel tank rela-

tively full to avoid water vapour con-

densing in it and accumulating at the 

bottom of the tank.


Gear lever

Selecting reverse gear
Vehicles with manual gearbox:

to the grid on the gear lever knob 1.
Vehicles with automatic gear-

box:  refer to the information on the 

“Automatic gearbox” in Section 2.
The reversing lights will come on as 

soon as reverse gear is selected with 

the ignition on.



Note: depending on the vehicle, if the 

dipped beam headlights are on, the 

front fog lights come on simultaneously 

when reverse gear is selected.


To release:
Pull the lever 3 up slightly, press 

button 2 and then lower the lever to the 


The red warning light on the instrument 

panel will come on if you are driving 

with an incorrectly released handbrake.

To apply:
Pull lever 3 upwards. Check that the 

vehicle is immobilised. The warning 



 on the instrument panel will 

come on.



When stationary, and de-

pending on the slope and/or 

vehicle load, it may be nec-

essary to pull up the hand-

brake at least two extra notches and 

engage a gear (1


 or reverse gear) 

for vehicles with a manual gearbox 

or position P for vehicles with an au-

tomatic gearbox.

An impact to the under-

side of the vehicle while 

manoeuvring (e.g.: strik-

ing a post, raised kerb or 

other street furniture) may result in 

damage to the vehicle (e.g.: defor-

mation of an axle).
To avoid any risk of accident, have 

your vehicle checked by an ap-

proved Dealer.

Make sure that the hand-

brake is properly released 

when driving (red indicator 

light off), otherwise over-

heating, or even damage, may 





Driving style indicator 2

Informs you about the driving style 

adopted in real time. You will be notified 

by the colour of warning light 2.
–  Green: measured, economical driv-


–  Yellow: opt for a calmer driving style;

–  Orange: driving too fast.
To activate/deactivate the driving style 

indicator, please see the multimedia 

system instructions.



Gear change indicator 1

Depending on the vehicle, to obtain op-

timum consumption levels, a warning 

light on the instrument panel lets you 

know the best time to move up or down 

a gear:


 move up a gear;

 move down a gear.

Fuel consumption is accredited in ac-

cordance with a standard regulatory 

method. Identical for all manufactu-

rers, this enables vehicles to be com-

pared with one another. Consumption 

in real time depends on vehicle usage 

conditions, the equipment fitted and the 

user’s driving style. To optimise fuel 

consumption, please refer to the fol-

lowing advice.
Depending on the vehicle, you will have 

various functions which enable you to 

lower your fuel consumption:
–  the rev counter;

–  gear change indicator;

–  the driving style indicator;

–  the journey record and eco-driving 

advice via the multimedia display;

–  ECO mode activated by button ECO.
If fitted on the vehicle, the navigation 

system provides additional information.





Journey record

Once the engine is switched off, you 

will see “Journey record” displayed on 

the screen 3, enabling you to view in-

formation relating to your last journey.
This indicates: 

–  average fuel consumption;

–  number of miles/kilometres travelled;

–  number of miles/kilometres saved.

An overall rating from 0 to 100 is dis-

played to let you assess your eco driv-

ing performance. The higher the rating, 

the lower the fuel consumption.

Eco advice is given to help improve 

your performance.

With your favourite journeys saved, you 

can evaluate your performance.

For more information, please see the 

multimedia system instructions.




ECO mode

ECO mode is a function which opti-

mises fuel consumption. It acts upon 

certain power consuming systems in 

the vehicle (heating, air conditioning, 

power-assisted steering etc.) and on 

certain driving actions (acceleration, 

gear changing, cruise control, deceler-

ation etc.).


Disabling the  function
Press switch 4.

The 5 

 light goes out on the ins-

trument panel to confirm deactivation.


Activating the function
Press switch 4.

The 5 

 warning light comes on on 

the instrument panel to confirm activa-

While driving, it is possible to exit the 

ECO mode temporarily in order to im-

prove engine performance.
Do this by pressing the accelerator 

pedal down firmly and fully.
ECO mode is reactivated when you 

take pressure off the accelerator pedal.


Driving advice and ECO 


–  Drive carefully for the first few miles 

until the engine reaches its normal 

operating temperature, rather than 

let it warm up while the vehicle is sta-


–  Speed is expensive.

–  Sporty driving uses a lot of fuel: drive 

with a light right foot.

–  Do not overrev the engine in the in-

termediate gears.

  You should always use the highest 

gear possible.

–  Avoid sudden acceleration.

–  Brake as little as possible. If you an-

ticipate an obstacle or bend in ad-

vance, you may then simply release 

the accelerator pedal.

– Do not try to maintain the same 

speed up a hill, accelerate no more 

than you would on the level. Keep 

your foot in the same position on the 

accelerator pedal.

–  Double declutching and accelerating 

before switching off are unnecessary 

in modern vehicles.

–  Bad weather, flooded roads:

Do not drive through 

floods if the water is 

above the lower edge of 

the wheel rims.

Obstructions to the driver

On the driver’s side, only 

use mats adapted to the ve-

hicle that attach to the pre-

installed parts, and regularly check 

their mounting. Do not place several 

mats on top of each other.

There is a risk of wedging the 







Advice on use
–  Opt for ECO mode.

–  Electricity is fuel; switch off all the 

electrical components which are 

not really needed. However (safety 

first), keep your lights on when the 

visibility is bad (“see and be seen”).

–  Use the air vents. Driving with the 

windows open at 60 mph (100 km/h) 

will increase fuel consumption by 


–  Never fill the fuel tank right to the 

brim to avoid overflow.

–  In vehicles fitted with air condi-

tioning, it is normal to observe an 

increase in fuel consumption (espe-

cially in urban conditions) when it is 

used. For vehicles fitted with manual 

air conditioning, switch off the system 

when it is not required.
Advice for reducing consumption 

and therefore helping to preserve 

the environment:
If the vehicle has been parked in the 

sun, open the doors for a few mo-

ments to let the hot air escape before 

starting the engine.

– Do not leave an empty roof rack 

fitted to the vehicle.

–  It is better to fit a trailer for bulky ob-


–  When towing a caravan, fit a wind 

deflector and adjust it carefully.

–  Avoid using the car for door-to-door 

calls (short journeys with long waits 

in between) because the engine 

never reaches its normal operating 


–  An underinflated tyre increases fuel 


–  The use of non-recommended tyres 

can increase fuel consumption.



Your vehicle complies with criteria for 

recycling and recovering vehicles at the 

end of their service life, which entered 

into force in 2015.
Some parts of your vehicle have there-

fore been designed to facilitate future 

These parts are easy to remove so 

that they can be recovered and reproc-

essed by recycling companies.
By virtue of its design, moderate fuel 

consumption and initial settings, your 

vehicle also conforms to current anti-

pollution regulations. The manufac-

turer is actively striving to reduce pol-

lutant exhaust gas emissions and to 

save energy. But the fuel consumption 

of your vehicle and the level of pollutant 

exhaust gas emissions are also your 

responsibility. Ensure that it is main-

tained and used correctly.


It is important to remember that fail-

ure to respect antipollution regulations 

could lead to legal action being taken 

against the vehicle owner.

In addition, replacing engine, fuel 

supply system and exhaust compo-

nents with parts other than those origi-

nally recommended by the manufac-

turer may alter your vehicle so that it 

no longer complies with anti-pollution 

Have your vehicle adjusted and 

checked by an authorised dealer, in ac-

cordance with the instructions given in 

your maintenance schedule: they will 

have all the equipment necessary for 

ensuring that your vehicle is maintained 

to its original standard.

Engine adjustments

 Spark plugs: for optimum condi-

tions of use, output and performance 

the specifications laid down by our 

Design Department must be strictly 


  If the spark plugs have to be changed, 

use the make, type and gap specified 

for your vehicle’s engine. Contact an 

authorised dealer for this.

  Air filter, fuel filter: a choked ele-

ment will reduce efficiency. It must 

be replaced.

  Ignition and idle speed: no adjust-

ment is needed.

Exhaust gas monitoring 


The exhaust gas monitoring system will 

detect any operating faults in the vehi-

cle’s antipollution system.

If this system malfunctions, toxic sub-

stances may be released into the at-

mosphere or damage may occur.


This warning light on the in-

strument panel will indicate if 

there are any faults in the system:

This lights up when the ignition is 

switched on and goes out when the 

engine is started.
–  If it lights up continuously, consult an 

approved Dealer as soon as possi-


–  if it flashes, reduce the engine speed 

until the light stops flashing. Contact 

an authorised dealer as soon as pos-





Your vehicle has been designed to 

emit fewer greenhouse gases (CO2) 

while in use, and therefore to consume 

less fuel (eg. 140 g/km, equivalent to 

5.3  l/100 km for a diesel vehicle).
Our vehicles are also equipped with a 

particle filter system including a cata-

lytic converter, an oxygen sensor and 

an active carbon filter (the latter pre-

vents vapour from the fuel tank being 

released into the open air).
For certain diesel vehicles, this system 

also has a particle filter to reduce the 

volume of soot particles emitted.

Please make your own 

contribution towards 

protecting the environment 


–  Worn parts replaced in the course of 

routine vehicle maintenance (vehi-

cle battery, oil filter, air filter, batter-

ies, etc.) and oil containers (empty or 

filled with used oil) must be disposed 

of through specialist organisations.

–  At the end of the vehicle’s service 

life, it should be sent to approved 

centres to ensure that it is recycled.

–  In all cases, comply with local legis-



Your vehicle is 85% recyclable and 

95% recoverable.
To achieve these objectives, many of 

the vehicle components have been de-

signed to enable them to be recycled. 

The materials and structures have 

been carefully designed to allow these 

components to be easily removed and 

reprocessed by specialist companies.
In order to preserve raw material re-

sources, this vehicle incorporates nu-

merous parts made from recycled plas-

tics or renewable materials (vegetable 

or animal-derived materials such as 

cotton or wool).

Your vehicle has been designed with 

respect for the environment in mind for 

its entire service life: during production, 

use and at the end of its life.

This commitment is illustrated by the 

Renault eco² signature.


Your vehicle has been manufactured at 

a factory which complies with a policy 

to reduce the environmental impact 

on the surrounding areas (reduction of 

water and energy consumption, visual 

and noise pollution, atmospheric emis-

sions and waste water; sorting and re-

using waste).
