The new Renault Rafale 2024 will be the talk of the town in the coming months as it targets a key segment of the market. And today, brings you exclusive images with previously unseen details of the new coupe SUV.

The new Renault Rafale could be considered, in a way, as the heir to the legendary Renault Safrane or even the now defunct Renault Talisman.
