Renault UK will start fitting DAB as standard on its models from 2014, beginning with the new Trafic and Twingo.
In the interim, the company is offering a DAB add-on for any car purchased recently.
The system, supplied by Connect2, is compatible with every Renault dating back to 2008, regardless of whether or not it features in-built satellite navigation or infotainment systems, such as Carminat TomTom, MediaNav or R-Link.
The device attaches to the back of the vehicle’s radio, behind the dashboard and even works in conjunction with steering wheel controls, where available.
Commenting on its latest consumer offer, Mark Crockett, Director, Services & Quality, Renault UK, said, “The majority of drivers spend a significant time in their cars and vans, for business, for pleasure, or even both. Our complete digital radio offer now provides a simple, cost effective way for our current and near future Renault owners to enjoy the many benefits of digital radio, on a daily basis, at a very competitive price. For those struggling with present ideas for a tricky loved one or friend, this could just be the perfect answer.”
