This allows the passengers to sit on the chair, while restoring to the original position is done through the same lever we mentioned above.
The new seat will be released this year in France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Belgium and Switzerland, with other countries to receive it in the months to come. It will be offered on the three- and five-door version of Clio Expression Clim (a trim to be launched in June) and Dynamique Tom Tom for 1,600 Euros.
Renault assures us that this is a lot cheaper as compared to aftermarket products, as pricing for such a seat could go around 2,500 Euros. Furthermore, the company emphasized that adding such an option to your car would not affect safety at all and the product is fully compliant with Renault's quality standards.
"Renault is the first European motor manufacturer to include this feature in its catalogue. The swivel seat can be specified like any other option and is fitted directly at the Flins factory, in France, as the car comes off the assembly line, so there is no change to the delivery lead time for the customer," Renault said in a statement.
