Renault has teased its new C-segment SUV, which will have its official global debut this spring. Called the Symbioz, the upcoming car is the compact hybrid in the manufacturer's C-segment lineup, with 4410mm of length. While the car's official debut is still some time away, the most recent teaser provides a sneak peek at some of its key design characteristics. Some notable features include the bending tailgate, new Solarbay panoramic glass, LED lighting, and a surface similar to the Renault Captur on the bodywork. As for the interior, hardly much is known. However, according to Renault, "The interior is designed to satisfy all the family, with generous space and loading capacity". Before the vehicle's global release, we hope the French manufacturer will give us a few more teasers to increase our excitement for the new compact SUV. Here's everything you need to know about its name's meaning and other potential attributes.
New Renault Symbioz: What 'Symbioz' Stands For?
The term ‘Symbioz’ is highly symbolic and has a deeper meaning. Renault's Head of Naming Strategy, Sylvia dos Santos, claims that the company desired a distinctive and important nameplate for their upcoming C-segment SUV. The word ‘symbiosis,’ which in science describes how several creatures coexist in a mutually advantageous connection, is where the name ‘Symbioz’ comes from. Renault believed that this accurately captured the essence of the upcoming compact car—to establish a strong bond with both families and passengers.
''For the future model, we really wanted a name that was centered around people and the deep bond that ties a family to their vehicle.'', claims Sylvia.
She added “The name also draws on our French roots, because ‘Symbioz’ is a clear nod to the French word 'symbiose’. Its pronunciation is very similar across multiple languages, meaning many people around the world can readily recognise the name ‘Symbioz'.''
New Renault Symbioz: Technical Details
The new SUV will be available alongside the carmaker's current C-segment hybrid models, the Arkana E-Tech and the Austral E-Tech. According to Renault, the vehicle will sport a 143bhp E-Tech complete gas-hybrid engine. The weight-saving drivetrain maintains the vehicle's total weight under 1,500 kg and enhances driving factors while consuming less fuel. Although specifics are being kept under wraps, the Renault Symbioz is probably going to use the same CMF-B architecture.
