Renault plans to launch in Romania a new generation of the Symbol model, produced in Turkey for developing countries. The car will enter the Moscow market in late August and will borrow design elements from the Clio model. Clio Symbol is the best model sold in Romania.
Renault representatives did not offer any data about the model designs and prices. The car addresses families in Eastern and Central Europe, Russia, Turkey and Maghreb. In Romania, last year some 13,400 Clio model cars were sold, over 18% more than in 2006.
In the first six months of the year, the Symbol car model sales dropped by over 20% in Romania alone.
