The Renault-Nissan alliance has been a major strategic advantage for both companies over the last decade.

2018 Renault Captur Intens review

The updated Renault Captur is still a looker, and is cheaper to own and run than you might imagine. The flagship Zen is an interesting Hyundai Kona/Toyota C-HR/Mazda CX-3 rival.

Top driving roads around Melbourne: Reefton Spur

Welcome to another instalment of our little Top Driving Roads series, intended to highlight some of the best, most challenging, and most fun roads we (occasionally) get to drive on. To clarify, driving isn’t always about going fast; we want to make that bit clear...

2017 Renault Megane Zen sedan review

The 2017 Renault Megane sedan has a polarising style, but, it is packed with practicality and safety features.

2017 Renault Megane GT wagon review

The 2017 Renault Megane GT wagon offers a perfect blend of practicality and sportiness. But is it hot enough to warrant the GT badge on its tailgate? Jez Spinks finds out.

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. Over its stint with the team the Renault Trafic was used as a support vehicle on shoots, a daily commuter, an object mover, and all the other things you’d expect of a van...

2017 Renault Koleos Zen 4x2 Review

Read the full article here. The second-generation 2017 Renault Koleos has arrived and is ready to take on the juggernauts in the medium SUV segment. The new Koleos is vital to Renault in Australia, with our love for SUVs and the French brand's desire to capitalise on that, largely behind the decision to launch it here before anywhere else in the world...

Renault Comparisons

2017 Skoda Octavia RS wagon v Renault Megane GT wagon comparison

Petrolhead parents on a budget are hardly spoilt for choice in today’s showrooms – especially if a hatchback is considered a bit too small and they prefer their driving experience, rather than outward view, to be elevated. In the circa-$40,000 price zone, there are just three members of the sporty compact wagon breed: the Renault Megane GT, Skoda Octavia RS, and Subaru Levorg...

Renault Megane Intens v Mazda 3 SP25 GT v Holden Astra LTZ comparison

Who would have thought there’d be enough action in the small sedan segment of the market to warrant yet another comparison test – our fifth such test since the beginning of 2016? Yet here we are, in a world where the small car is increasingly being seen as a great alternative to the mid-size sedan because, essentially, these new ‘small’ sedans offer better space for your spend than vehicles in the next segment up...

Small hatchback comparison: Holden Astra v Renault Megane v Subaru Impreza

The small car market is one of the busiest segments of the Australian automotive landscape, both in terms of sales and for new product – and 2016 in particular proved to be a big year for the humble hatchback. 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 has demonstrated its latest autonomous driving systems, including obstacle avoidance technology "as good as professional test drivers".

Cars that should be sold in Australia

Australia is one of the most diverse, fragmented automotive markets in the world. We have more brands to choose from than the US, where 15-times more vehicles are sold. Yet local product planners across the 60-plus car makers that sell their wares here regularly opt not to import and distribute certain models, usually citing a lack of projected demand or a difficult “business case” — code for “too bloody expensive”...

Renault to launch 21 new models by 2022

The Renault Group has announced an ambitious five year plan to increase its electric vehicle offerings, reduce its reliance on diesel engines, and dramatically grow sales and profits. At the core of the company's new Drive The Future strategy are 21 new cars, including three "add-ons", due before the end of 2022...

1985 Renault Fuego GTX review

  After purchasing this little French rocket a month ago, I finally made it to country NSW to pick this little car up from the previous owner. Now, many people asked me "Why are you doing this? You wont make it back! Yadda yadda..." But, to the naysayers I say this..

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...
