Renault’s new-look Megane hatchback moves the game forward for the brand in a number of ways, and will give the French brand’s fast-growing Australian arm a big boost, given it competes in the market’s biggest segment.

The Koeru — a name that translates to “exceed” or “go beyond" in Japanese — is a sporty concept SUV with “awe-inspiring” proportions and an “intriguing form”. But what is its purpose beyond eye candy?
