The Renault Symbol, or Thalia in some markets, is a subcompact car produced by the French automobile manufacturer Renault. [1] It was introduced in late 1999, under the Clio Symbol name, as the sedan version of the second generation Renault Clio, and unlike the hatchback it was marketed only in those countries where saloons were traditionally preferred over hatchbacks, [2] while it was not sold in Western Europe. [3] It was actually sold in France, but only in overseas departments/regions and collectivities.

The second generation has a different design than the third generation Clio and is built on the platform of the first generation car. A third generation has been introduced in late 2012, as a rebadged version of the second generation Dacia Logan.

Its key markets are Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, the Maghreb and the Persian Gulf states, most notably countries like Turkey, Brazil, Romania, Russia, Algeria, Colombia and Tunisia. [4]

In late 1999, the Clio Symbol began production in Turkey, as the sedan version of the Clio II. [5] It was subsequently launched in other countries, under different names, depending of the market: Clio Symbol, [6] Thalia, [7] Clio Sedan, [8] Clio 4 Puertas, [9] Symbol, [10] or Clio Classic. [11] The car was intended for sale in developing countries, where saloons were traditionally preferred over hatchbacks, most notably in Eastern Europe. In some Latin American markets, like Chile and Mexico, [12] the facelifted model was offered as Nissan Platina, with slight changes at the front of the car to make it resemble the Nissan Altima. It is longer by 38 cm (15.0 in) than the hatchback and has a larger boot of 510 litres (18 cu ft). [13]

The main production site of the model has been the Oyak-Renault plant in Bursa, Turkey, where manufacturing started in 1999. [5] Worldwide, it was also built since 2000 in Argentina at the plant in Santa Isabel, Córdoba, [14] in Brazil at the Ayrton Senna complex in Sao José dos Pinhais, near Curitiba, [15] and since 2001 in Colombia by Sofasa. [4] [16] In 2002, it began assembly in Mexico, rebadged as Nissan Platina, at the Nissan Mexicana plant in Aguascalientes. [17] For a short time, between the end of 2002 and 2004, it was also assembled in Russia by Avtoframos. [18] [19] The Platina was dropped following the 2010 model year, [20] and was replaced by the March in its Mexican assembly plant and the line-up.

At the beginning it was available with only two engine options in Europe: a 1.4 litre 8-valve (75  hp, 114  Nm) and a 1.4 litre 16-valve (98 hp, 127 Nm), both of them with multi-point fuel injection. [21] In Argentina it was manufactured with a 1.6 litre 16-valve petrol (100 hp; 74 kW) engine and a 1.9 litre diesel (65 hp; non-turbo), [22] in Colombia with the 1.4 litre 8-valve, [23] and in Brazil either with the 1.6 litre 16-valve or with a 1.0 16-valve petrol (70 hp; 52 kW). [24] Initial trim designations were RN (RNA, RND) and RT (RTE, RTD), but later they received designated names: Authentique, Expression, Dynamique, Alizé, Privilège etc.

Facelift

It was facelifted in March 2002, [25] gaining the new front end of the hatchback Clio, black moldings on the bumpers, slightly revised interior (electric window buttons moved from the central console onto the doors, the steering wheel got a new design) and improved safety levels. New engines were also added: [26] [27] a 1.5 litre diesel (65 hp, 160 Nm), [28] and the 1.6 litre 16-valve petrol (105 hp, 148 Nm) in Europe, [29] which was only available with the Dynamique trim level. [26] Throughout the following years, two other versions of the dCi engine were featured in the range: the 65 hp version was upgraded to 70 hp (following the introduction of the Euro IV emission standards from January 2005) and a more powerful version of 80 hp and 185 Nm (in the second half of 2004). [30] [31] A new 1.2 litre 16-valve engine (75 hp, 105 Nm) was introduced the first half of 2006. [32] An automatic transmission version was available, but only with the 1.4 16-valve petrol engine. [33]

The new front end was adopted in South America from 2003. In Brazil two engines were adapted to run with flexible-fuel: the 1.0 litre 16-valve (76 hp on petrol, 77 hp on alcohol) and the 1.6 litre 16-valve (110 hp on petrol, 115 hp on alcohol); [34] while in Argentina a CNG version was introduced towards the end of the year. [35] The interior of the pre-facelifted model was kept in the South American facelift version. In Colombia, it was added the automatic transmission in 2004 to the Symbol Expression, and the new interior of the facelift model was added in 2008, with some differences from the European version, including the location of the electric window controls, the seats and the radio, and it kept the exterior of the phase II Symbol. The Alizé model included front electric windows and driver airbag; the Expression included electric mirrors, digital clock, passenger airbag, ABS and foglights. The 2008 model also included a 1.6 litre petrol engine, replacing the 1.4 litre one.

The Nissan Platina was available only with the 1.6 litre 16-valve petrol engine (110 hp; 82 kW). It had four trim levels, baptized Grado Q, Grado K, Grado K plus and Grado A, the same as the top cards in a playing deck. [36] From the 2008 model year, they changed to Custom, Emotion, Premium and Premium A. [37] It was sold either with a manual gearbox or with an automatic one with overdrive system.

In the first half of 2005, minor changes were done to the Renault models. These included clear tail lights and side repeaters, a slightly modified grille and some of the display units passing form analogue to digital.

In the beginning of 2006, an improved version of the sedan was offered in Argentina and Brazil, and from fall in Europe. [38] At the exterior, it now had body coloured bumpers, without moldings and regardless of the trim level. The shape of the grille was revised and the boot got a new handle with the Renault logo integrated, similar to the one used on Laguna, as well as the new styling of the Renault word. Four new colours were made available and two distinctive new rim designs. For the European model and the Platina, [39] the interior was upgraded to the one used in the facelifted Clio II, with very minor parts commonality with Mégane II, as well as new standard and optional equipment, such as automatic air conditioning and a CD player. [40]

This model was offered in three equipment levels: Authentique, Expression and Dynamique. Expression included driver airbag, air conditioning, trip computer, electric mirrors, electric front windows, CD-player and height adjustable steering wheel. Dynamique added passenger airbag, ABS, rear electric windows, body coloured door handles and alloy rims, although the ABS and passenger airbag were optionals that could be added to the lower levels too. Automatic air conditioning was available as an extra feature. [40]

It scored 12 points out of 16 in a frontal crash test conducted by the Russian magazine Autoreview in 2002, which was considered equivalent to the result scored by the hatchback version in the Euro NCAP testing. [41] Over 600,000 units were sold worldwide since the release of this model. [42]

Marketing

Renault quietly stopped sales of Thalia in Croatia during 2005 in favour of Dacia Logan and from early 2006, it's no longer present in their websites. [43]

The second generation uses the running gear of the previous generation car and has a different design than the third generation Clio. The name Clio was dropped in favour to just Symbol, or Thalia in those markets where this name was used on the previous generation.

It was revealed for the first time in August 2008 at the Moscow International Motor Show and went on sale between September and November. The second generation car is longer than the previous by 7 cm (2.8 in) and has a boot capacity of 506 litres (17.9 cu ft). [44]

The new Symbol was designed jointly by Renault's engineering teams in France, Turkey and Romania, for countries in the Eastern and Central Europe, Russia, Turkey, North Africa and as well the Persian Gulf States. Development of the project (codenamed L35) took 26 months. [44] [45] The main production site remains the Oyak-Renault plant in Bursa, Turkey, and from 2009 it is also manufactured in Santa Isabel, Argentina, for the South American market and only with the 1.6 litre 16-valve engine. [46]

It is available in three equipment levels: Authentique, Expression and Privilège. Features included by Authentique are driver airbag, rev-counter or body-coloured front and rear bumpers. Expression adds hydraulic power steering, trip computer, electric front windows, height adjustable steering wheel and front seats, folding rear bench seat, rear headrests and body-coloured mirrors and electric central locking with remote control. Privilège adds electric mirrors, leather-trimmed steering wheel, foglamps, rear electric windows and radio-CD player with MP3 playback. [44]

In terms of safety, the new Symbol offers driver airbag, passenger airbag, two lateral airbags (depending on version), anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), anti-intrusion strengthening in front and rear doors, height-adjustable front seatbelts, power steering and rear parking sensors. [44]

In December 2008, the second generation of the Renault Symbol was awarded the "Autobest 2009" prize, by a jury made up of journalists from fifteen countries, mainly emerging markets in Eastern and Central Europe. [47]

The Turkish police forces use second generation Renault Symbol cars. [48]

In November 2014, the Renault Symbol began assembly from CKD kits in a new plant in Oran, Algeria. [58] Its production capacity is 25,000 units per year, which may eventually be increased to 75,000 vehicles per year. [58]

The model produced for South America (where it is marketed mainly as the Renault Logan) and Turkey and Algeria retains small design differences, both at the exterior and the interior. The interior differs mainly at the central part of the dashboard, whereas the exterior has a different front end design, incorporating the new large Renault badge, a different headlamp configuration and mirror-mounted indicators.

[65] An important addition is the Dacia Easy-R automated manual transmission.

The facelifted model is slightly different in terms of design and even equipment from the Renault Logan offered in the rest of Latin America. [66] [67]

The facelifted Symbol is not sold in Mexico, leaving Renault without a saloon in the Mexican market.
