The MULTI-SENSE and 4CONTROL Advanced systems help customise the All-New Austral’s on board experience for a more enjoyable and heightened driving experience.
MULTI-SENSE Advanced technology features three pre-set driving modes: Eco, Comfort and Sport. A fourth mode (Perso) gives the driver free rein over every setting. The Extended Grip Pack includes two additional modes: ‘Snow’ and ‘All roads’. Drivers can switch between modes at any time, either manually or via the voice command Google Assistant. The All-New Austral also features a brand-new proactive function to help reduce fuel use in that it automatically suggests switching to Eco mode.
The All-New Austral will see the arrival of Renault’s third generation four-wheel steering that has been steadily improved over the past 15 years: 4CONTROL Advanced. Unlike no other on its segment, it imbues the All-New Austral with a new level of comfort, increased agility, and unparalleled performance. With the addition of a steering actuator on the multi-arm rear axle, the steering angle of the rear wheels is now 5° and guarantees a turning circle that is tighter than a regular city car: 10.1 metres. With the combined MULTI-SENSE and 4CONTROL Advanced systems, there are now 13 setting options as opposed to three previously.
Smart and proactive driving aids
The All-New Renault Austral features 32 ADAS that can be grouped together in three categories: driving, parking and safety.
They include: a new-generation 9.3" Head Up Display, projected through the windscreen; Active Driver Assist, level 2 autonomy that combines the Adaptive Cruise Control with ‘Stop & Go’, Lane Centering, GPS data and mapping so the car can adapt the route as needed; 360° around view 3D camera; Automated Park Assist; Blind Spot Warning and Lane Departure Prevention when overtaking; Rear Automatic Emergency Braking; Rear Cross Traffic Alert; Matrix LED Vision smart lighting and Occupant Safe Exit.
The best in passive safety
The All-New Austral guarantees the best level in protection for passengers and other road users thanks to a range of improved passive safety equipment.
Typical safety features have been improved and a new air bag has been added between the driver and front passenger to avoid crashing heads in the event of a side-on collision.
The All-New Austral E-TECH Hybrid features a special battery compartment access and QR code to help rescue teams provide fast and effective assistance to passengers.
