And more. For us at CarAdvice, it is, unsurprisingly, also the cars. We are privileged to travel around the world for our job, visiting cities, countries and far-flung corners we might otherwise never see in our lives...

Speaking with media at the opening of a Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance warehouse in Melbourne, Kent O'Hara, senior vice president for after sales at the Alliance, said there were lessons for Renault/Nissan in the way Mitsubishi, comfortably the smallest member of group, goes about its business...

2019 Renault Kadjar spied again

The facelifted Renault Kadjar has been spied again, this time including images of the vehicle's interior – though there's still a heap of camouflage throughout.

Renault Australia: Trafic auto still 12 to 18 months away

There's something holding the Renault Trafic back in Australia. No matter how sharply it's marketed, or how well it's priced, buyers want automatics, and the French brand doesn't offer one Down Under. Even tradies are avoiding three-pedal cars like the proverbial locally. Manual vans make up just 30 per cent of the market in which the Trafic competes, making its nine per cent segment share impressive...

Renault Megane RS maxed out on the autobahn - video

The Renault Megane RS280 has only just been priced for Australia, but the RS range is already doing the rounds on European roads. That means any hotshot with a few cameras and access to an autobahn can test out the claimed top speed. That's exactly what AutoTopNL has done, taking advantage of a quiet stretch of derestricted motorway to put the new French hot hatch through its paces...

2018 Renault Koleos v Volkswagen Tiguan comparison

As the current family favourite in Australia, medium SUVs represent the second-biggest slice of the local new car market – hot on the heels of more affordable (and often fleet-favoured) small cars. The choice of available models is broad with 19 mainstream models to pick from, but in this instance we’ve chosen a pair of haulers that can not only live up to the demands of active family life, but do so with a semi-premium Euro twist...

2019 Renault Kadjar spied

The updated Renault Kadjar has been spotted during development testing in Europe, giving us an early look at what to expect from the refreshed crossover. It appears the majority of the changes will be focused on the front- and rear-end styling – hence the concentration of black-and-white camouflage in those areas – with a design more in keeping with the company's newest models, namely the Megane hatchback and Koleos SUV...
