Renault internationally focuses on high levels of service and support for their customers. Currently there are 7 models available ranging from the Clio to the Koleos. The Renault-Nissan alliance has been a major strategic advantage for both companies over the last decade.

2017 Renault Megane Wagon : 2016 Geneva Motor Show

Read the article here. The new 2017 Renault Megane wagon has been revealed, following the Frankfurt motor show debut of the new Megane hatch in September 2015. As expected, the 2017 Renault Megane wagon follows in the footsteps of its predecessor by adding roof rails and a more practical load-hauling back-end to the regular hatch model, while retaining a fast look with a tapered roofline – the go-to sports styling trick for most modern wagons...

Renault Clio RS220 Trophy v Renault Megane RS265 Cup - Hillclimb Battle

Read the article here. We put the Renault Clio RS220 Trophy head-to-head against the Renault Megane RS265 Cup, in a lap-time battle around the 1.3-kilometre Haunted Hills hillclimb circuit in Victoria.

Renault Megane RS275 Trophy-R Review : Track test

You’re looking at the most extreme front-wheel drive hatch currently in production. It’s called the Megane Renault Sport 275 Trophy-R and there will only ever be 250 of them in the entire world. It’s the fastest, most track focused production car Renault’s performance division has ever created...

2016 Renault Megane Review : First Drive

The 2016 Renault Megane presents a pleasant mixture of French styling with ultra-efficient drivetrains that should see this small-car offering become a more serious contender in Australia. The new Renault Megane hopes to take on the likes of the Golf and other European contenders in the segment (like the Peugeot 308), and win on merit alone...

Van comparison: Hyundai iLoad v Renault Trafic v Volkswagen Transporter

Commercial vans are increasingly proving an important part of the Australian automotive landscape. Vans of all sizes – small, medium and large – saw sales increases in 2015, and it’s that middle segment that takes up the majority of sales. There’s a clear sales leader and, surprise, surprise – it’s a Toyota...

Renault Clio RS220 Trophy v Renault Megane RS265 Cup: Comparison Review

Intra-brand rivalries can be fun. Comparing the top-spec variant of one model in a manufacturer's line-up with the entry-level version of another, can often deliver interesting outcomes. And when the gap between them, in sheer dollar terms anyway, is rather close, things can be even more interesting...

Honda HR-V VTi-S v Renault Captur Dynamique : Comparison Review

The term 'crossover' is now as much about bridging generational gaps as it is about mashing up body styles. Whether you're a young first-car buyer, baby boomer retiree or small family in between, the blossoming compact people mover segment is increasingly targeting buyer niches with idiosyncratic models...

2018 Renault Megane RS: buyers keen on paddle-shift auto

Renault Australia admits a small core of buyers have expressed concern the company will change the formula for the 2018 Megane RS, but says the majority of feedback has centred around making the hardcore offering more accessible to a wide audience. The next-generation Megane RS will emerge in 2017/18 and, unlike the current three-door coupe, will be a five-door hatchback only...

2001 Renault Clio Sport Review

It's small, and it has a lot of rattles and it's not the most refined car in the world but I love it. Renault Sport built their reputation on driver's cars and this is certainly one of those. My particular example has had the typically made-of-cheese French engine mounts replaced with rigid items which greatly increases NVH but also increases throttle response (and they won't need to be replaced again!)...

2015 Renault Clio Rs 200 SPORT Review

Got mine as an ex-demo at an amazing prize. $24,999 to be exact. Considering the price I was always going to be impressed but this is a vehicle I would have payed double that for.(okay....maybe I'd rather have the Megane RS..) None the less I can't heap praise on this car enough. The sport being the base model does not feel in anyway shape or form an entry level 'cheap skate' into the RenaultSport brand...

2015 Renault Megane GT-line Review

I have had this car for 1 year now and have found it a pleasure to drive. It is the first car in a long time that i want to drive as its responsive engine and superb handling make it a joy to take through some windy hills or even just negotiating suburban streets. The only negative i can find is lack of rear leg room but since it is children going in there it isn't an issue...

2015 Renault Captur Dynamique Review

I have had my Captur for 2 months and so far loving it. As I drive 2 hours a day, I was specifically looking for a car that was economical, but also had a great look, had integrated Bluetooth and navigation and offered a higher seating position, to allow for better visibility while in traffic. To find the elevation I was looking for, I test drove mainly small SUV type cars...
