There are 2 trim levels available in this category of model and they are the Campus and Campus sport. The Campus Sedan is understandably more affordable as it is built for the more practical driver who is looking for comfort rather than speed. The most disappointing piece of equipment that comes as standard with the Renault Campus Sedan is the sound system this is basically a radio cassette player. Do not be to be too disheartened when you read this, there are other features available that come at no extra cost the helps the Renault Campus Sedan redeem itself. You will expect to get ABS with EBD, height adjustment for the driver's seat and the bumpers and steering column come in the same color as the body.
By now, you will begin to understand why the word "affordable" has been used here. Whilst Renault have not compromised on reliability, you will find that the Renault Campus Sedan is actually aimed at the lower end of the market, this way, everyone has the chance to own a Renault vehicle of some sort. The engine is reliable but by no means does it offer anything in the way of flash abilities. Do bear in mind that fuel consumption has really been thought about with this model. When you are trying to attract people to buy a vehicle at the lower end of the market, then you have to build it so that the running costs will not leave the owner digging under the sofa to find money for fuel! The typical engine that you will get with the Renault Campus Sedan will either be a 1.2 liter or 1.5 liter engine which takes diesel. The smaller of the engines will give 60bhp and the larger will give you 68bhp. The average consumption with these engines is approximately 68 miles to the gallon. This is pretty impressive and will certainly get you thinking when deciding on a reasonably priced vehicle that has been made by a household name manufacturer.
The Renault Campus Sedan is not the quickest vehicle on the market with an acceleration speed of 0-60 in about 15 seconds. However given that the diesel engine has that little bit extra torque, it feels pretty muscular when it comes to driving about town.In Conclusion
Ok, so the Renault Campus Sedan cannot be described as the prettiest vehicle around or the most well equipped at the moment, however, when you are looking at starting prices of as little as US$12,000 for a brand new sedan then it is hard to resist; especially when you are on a tight budget.
If you are a person with a family that works hard to ensure that you can pay the mortgage and your bills each month, you need a vehicle that is not only reliable, hard wearing and has an extremely low running cost attached to it, but will also meet the needs you have when driving.
It will allow you to do your daily errands as a full time Mom or will even support you when commuting to and from work. The key words to remember here are "practical", "affordable" and "reliable". If this is all you are looking for when choosing a sedan and really would like to be able to drive something away from a showroom rather than a 2nd hand car lot, then you seriously have to consider the Renault Campus Sedan.
Of course, if you are image conscious and still do not have the money the Renault Campus Sedan is perhaps not the vehicle for you. Do bear in mind however, that Renault have a multitude of models to choose from and if you really like the look of the Campus Sedan, perhaps the Campus Sport Sedan would be a better choice for you.
