The Renault Altica is a concept car made by Renault and was debuted at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show.[1] The design combines features of a station wagon and a coupe — and has been described as a shooting-brake.[2] With a luggage capacity of 1,300 litres and four seats, the Altica features butterfly doors.


Although the car emits a low 140 kg/km CO2 emissions for its class (also due to its aerodynamics and a rear feature called "Synthetic Jet"),[3] the Renault Altica is able to reach 60 mph in 7.5 seconds[4] and its 2.0 litre diesel produces Script error: No such module "convert". and Script error: No such module "convert". of torque.[5]

The Synthetic Jet is a patented aerodynamic device that consists of a 2 mm wide slot located at the extreme rear of the roof. Through this slot air is alternately sucked and blown to control the separation of air depending on the Altica's speed. At Script error: No such module "convert". it is claimed that the Synthetic Jet reduces the Altica's Cd by 15% resulting in improved fuel economy.
