Built on the robust CMF-D platform from the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, the Renault Rafale redefines sustainable development and advanced safety features.

The rear features sleek, sculpted tail lights and bold body lines, capped off with the Rafale monogram that underscores its identity.

For an even more exclusive experience, the Renault Rafale comes in the high-end 'esprit Alpine' trim, which includes 19-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, satin chrome front and rear accents, and a matte titanium grey body finish, bringing a touch of high-performance styling to everyday driving.

Renault Rafale Technology and Comfort

Inside the Renault Rafale, the latest openR link system dominates the dashboard with dual 12-inch screens, seamlessly integrating with controls on the steering wheel for ease of use. Leveraging the Google ecosystem, the Rafale offers Google Maps, Google Assistant, and up to 35 apps from the Google Play store, in addition to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Rear passengers of the Rafale enjoy the convenience of a new smart rear armrest equipped with dual USB-C ports, ensuring devices stay charged on the go. The spacious, flat-floor cabin design provides ample legroom, ensuring comfort for all occupants.
