In March Renault revamped the all-electric ZOE with the new ZE50 and released two new trim levels: the Iconic and the GT Line. Both trim levels have been added Onto our fleet (see what we did there??) and with Zoe car deliveries now starting, we thought we’d shine a spotlight on the key differences between the two models.
Firstly, what are the similarities?
Both the Iconic and the GT Line have a 52kW battery (good for 245 miles!) and DC rapid charging
Both the Iconic and the GT Line come with a revamped design, a range of new features and a much improved range. A 52kW battery now delivers 245 miles on one charge (WTLP) - although we believe in the real world this will be closer to 215 miles. All Onto Zoe’s come with the more powerful R135 motor and the DC rapid charging option allowing you to charge your ZOE from 0-80% in 1h 10. If you are only making a brief stop, just 30 minutes charging will get you an extra 90 miles of range.
GT Line Exterior
Styling differences include 16” alloys, tinted windows and more chrome on the GT Line
Both the Iconic and the GT Line have had a facelift, with a new front bumper and LED headlights. The GT has a few additional styling cues to give it a more aggressive stance, including 16” diamond-cut alloys, tinted rear windows plus a chrome surround on the front fog lights and grille. We’ve pushed the boat out with this new Zoe, with both Onto models now available in a selection of colours!
The bigger changes, however, take place inside.
Interior Styling Features
The GT Line is part-recycled, part-synthetic leather with a huge 9.3-inch infotainment screen
Wow! Renault have really upped their game with the interior, especially on the GT Line. Both cars in the range have eco-friendly upholstery and Renault have done a great job of replacing many of the hard plastics of the previous model with new soft-touch materials.
GT Line Interior
Whilst the Iconic comes with 100% recycled fabric seat upholstery, the GT Line has part-recycled, part synthetic leather upholstery for a more deluxe finish. The GT Line and the Iconic electric cars have a synthetic leather steering wheel which provides the driver with a more lavish grip.
The Iconic and GT Line both also come with the EASY LINK multimedia touchscreen system with; Apple Car Play and Android Auto, Bluetooth, radio, navigation, and 6 speakers. The difference here is that the GT Line comes with a 9.3” touchscreen compared to the Iconic’s 7” touchscreen. In both cars, drivers are provided with connected navigation services - allowing you to connect to Google search for places of interest, live traffic information, weather and also finding the location of charging stations. 2 USB sockets are available for the rear seats on both trim levels.
Driving and Controls
Renault have ensured that the Iconic and the GT Line ranges are supplied with a range of features as standard to help provide a driver-friendly experience. This includes lane departure warnings, lane keep assist, automatic high/low beams, automatic climate control and cruise control.
On top of what is already a large array of tech features, the GT Line comes with a few other additional ones, keeping you and your family even safer with even more convenience. These additional features include:
Comfort and Convenience
A feature that we love, that is present in both trims, is the ability to charge your smart phone wirelessly. You no longer need to bring a cable with you when your phone is in need of charging. Plus, this will help to ensure you always have enough charge to access your Onto app.
The GT Line also comes with electrically folding mirrors which are very useful when parking.
