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.

2015 Renault Master SWB Speed Date Review

We've all heard the expression to 'make hay while the sun shines' - and so, assuming that happens... how do you pick up the hay once it is made? Why, in a van of course! My daughter's sixth birthday party coincided with the Renault Master SWB van, and some hay was needed (along with tables and chairs) to help the 'pony party' theme.

2015 Renault Clio RS track day review - Sandown Raceway

Read the article here. Renault likes to think of its RS cars as having DNA that comes from the racetrack but translates to the road. Well, today, we’re going back the other way, taking the city-dwelling Clio RS to Sandown Raceway for another CarAdvice weekend warrior track test… Now my voice might not be the best today but luckily it’s not about me it’s about this...

2015 Renault Megane RS265 - secret storage hatch

Ford Transit Custom v Renault Trafic: Medium van comparison

It’s the battle of the European mid-sized vans – both are white, both are diesel, both are manual and both are just under $40,000. They are the all-new Renault Trafic and the Ford Transit Custom, the latter of which won our mid-sized van comparison test in 2014. The old Trafic was impressive in that test, and ranked second even though that model was considerably more, shall we say, vintage than its rivals...

Large van comparison: Fiat Ducato v Ford Transit v Mercedes-Benz Sprinter v Renault Master

I have owned this car since Nov 2014 and have put over 10K's with no issues so far. The RS monitor has frozen once or twice but I don't use this feature that often anyway. I use this car as a daily driver, weekend tourer and surfing buggy down the great ocean road as well (yes it fits my 6"0 surfboard no problem)...
