The Renault Fluence is a compact executive car produced by the French automaker Renault. The car is built at the Oyak-Renault plant in Bursa, Turkey and Santa Isabel factory, in Cordoba, Argentina for Latin America. For the Australian market, the Fluence is sourced from the Renault Samsung Motors factory in Busan, South Korea. Revealed in August 2009, Fluence is based on the Renault/Nissan C platform but it is sized between the compact family saloon C-segment and the upper-medium segment. The Mgane range featured a 'three-box' notchback sedan variant until 2008, but this was never a big seller and when, at the end of that year, the Mgane III was introduced, there was no notch-back version. It is the gap in the range left by the removal of this model from the Franco-Spanish assembled Mgane range that the Fluence fills in those markets in the company's western European heartland, such as France, Italy, Belgium and, since August 2010, Germany, where Renault offers it.
