Renault raises prices again
French importer set to raise prices across the range from July 1

RENAULT Australia has announced price increases for all its passenger and commercial models, effective 1 July 2022. It marks the second time in three months that the French marque has raised prices following a similar announcement in February.
Again, the importer cites a significant rise in material costs, increased shipping charges and the microprocessor shortage as the reason behind the “price realignment”.
All models, excluding the Megane RS, face an increase of between $100 and $1750, because Renault’s hot hatch is no longer listed on the manufacturer’s price sheet.
Variants of the coupe-styled Arkana small SUV will go up by $1210 and start from $35,800 (plus on-road costs), on top of the February increase of up to $1100.
The similar-sized Captur SUV will also jump $1210 to now begin at $31,900 (+ ORCs), in addition to February’s price increase of as much as $1900.
Prices of Koleos variants will increase between $1110 and $1410. The adjustment takes the starting price for the medium SUV range to $35,000 (+ ORCs), and a further $600 on pre-February prices.
“Like many brands here in Australia, rising shipping costs and an increase in the price of raw materials means we’ve had to adjust prices across the range,” said Renault Australia general manager Glen Sealey.
“While these price increases are an unfortunate consequence of the ever-changing world we live in, the Renault range still represents a premium offering combined with genuine value thanks to its high levels of safety, technology and cutting-edge design.”
The brand’s commercial range also faces price increases in the new financial year.
The Kangoo small van range – which was unaffected by the February price rise – now faces a modest increase of $100 to start at $26,390 (+ ORCs).
Master large van models increase more significantly (with price rises of between $1510 and $1750) to take the starting price of the range to $48,600 (+ ORCs). In February, pricing of the Master van range increased by between $1100 and $1360, meaning some models have increased by as much as $3110 in a little more than three months.
Finally, the mid-sized Trafic van range – which faced a range-wide increase of $1200 in February – jumps a further $1000 to now begin at $39,590 (+ ORCs).
Renault Australia says that with limited stock of models at the current price, buyers are encouraged to visit their local Renault dealer before July 1.
