Renault Safrane History
The Renault Safrane was produced as a replacement for the Renault 25 in 1992. This Renault was the top of the range Renault car of the time, and was the first Renault to have airbags and was only available as a 5-door liftback. It was designed in this way, to be an alternative, not a competitor, to the German executive cars which had a stranglehold on the executive class. The really good build quality of this car was due to the poor build quality of its predecessor, rectifying this with the Safrane. It was facelifted in 1996 to try and help the low sales. It received new front and rear ends but this didn't help with the poor sales. It was discontinued in 2000 and replaced with the Renault Vel Satis.
The Renault Safrane was available in 2.0, 2.2, 2.5 and 3.0L petrol and 2.1, 2.2 and 2.5L diesel engines. The diesel engines were the best economically, offering up to 35mpg which was not that good really. Which engine did you have and how did it perform economically?
