The new Renault Austral will share its platform with the Nissan Qashqai, so it’s highly likely that the engines will be shared as well.
This would mean a selection of 1.3-litre petrol engines with mild hybrid technology to boost efficiency.
The Austral may also make use of the hybrid system found in the Renault Captur. This comprises a 1.6-litre petrol engine paired with two electric motors to make 142Hp.
