Renault

Renault formally established in 1899 grew from France across Europe and eventually to Australia in 1999 with help of the Nissan alliance. 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 Talisman - 2016 Paris Motor Show

We don't get Renault's large sedan in Australia, but we kind of wish we did. The smart saloon has plenty of style and road presence. Paul takes a closer look.

2017 Renault Alaskan - 2016 Paris Motor Show

The Renault Alaskan might look familiar as it is essentially a restyled Nissan Navara. Should it come to Australia? We know the Navara is a capable machine, and with a few tweaks the Renault could well be a solid competitor for the likes of the Volkswagen Amarok. Paul takes a look.

2016 Renault Trafic Review: Long-term report four, farewell

Read the full review here. After six months of being our video team’s runaround van, our Renault Trafic has made its way back to the French brand’s headquarters.

Sales of small cars may have slowed off a little as people move towards the plethora of small SUV alternatives, but make no mistake: this segment still makes up the single biggest proportion of overall new vehicle sales, and it’s dominated by a couple of big-name models...

Renault Trafic automatic confirmed at last

Better late than never. The Renault Trafic mid-sized van will get a much-needed automatic transmission in current-generation guise, the company has confirmed. A firm timeline is not clear because it’s a bit of a moving feast internally, but Renault Australia light commercial line manager Lyndon Healey says the self-shifter has at least been green lit...

2017 Renault Koleos Intens (4x4) Review

I have owned two previous Koleos's. I picked up my new Intens two weeks ago, which seems to be light years ahead of the old model in terms of space, finish and technology. I looked at the Hyundai Santa Fe and Tuscon, the Kia Sportage, Isuzu, VW Tiguan and Toyota RAV4. Nothing came close in terms of features for the price...

2005 Renault Clio Sport 182 Cup F1 review

Research, magazine reviews, and word of mouth confirmed this Clio would be insane fun. Evo, Car and many other UK car mags that I had read years ago loved the Clio, and the first test drive of one confirmed all of the quirks and awesomeness. The particular colour (French Racing Blue) was a big pull, as were the aftermarket wheels and Koni/Eibach suspension combo...

2012 Renault Megane Rs 265 Trophy Review

If an engaging, smile-inducing, hard edged hot hatch is your thing, the Renault Sport Megane RS265 has you covered. Around town and as a daily driver, the RS has its drawbacks. The ride is firm with a capital F. Although composed and not crashy, it can be pretty tough commuting on our rugged roads...

2015 Renault Captur Dynamique Review

6 months in, still happy. The quirky, French baby SUV still manages to put a smile of inner satisfaction in me. Driving the Dynamique model of the range has been a pleasure - although there are a few quirks that tend to bug me. Overall the comfort level of the Captur is exceptional. With the combination of comfort, functionality and ride engagement, this is a fun and smooth vehicle...
