Holiday weekend getaway in the Renault Megane RS

Chances are that if you’ve got the all-new 2018 Renault Megane RS in your future car-ownership crosshairs, you’ve already decided on transmission preference in the choice between conventional manual and EDC dual-clutch types, even before you’ve so much as sat in the French hatch. Fair enough. But let's do this anyway...

Normally a comparison is a great opportunity for us to compare vehicles that sit within the same size or price category, with a CarAdvice-backed winner declared at the end. Given the relative lack of competition within segments in the electric vehicle market, we wanted to do something a little different with a comparison of a cross-section of the passenger EV market – a group of cars from the cheapest to the most expensive...

2017 Renault Trafic LWB Crew Review

Hi world! It was a couple months from the end of my lease, and I was needing an update for my work car. So with the end of my lease approaching, I started looking and dreaming. The work vehicle had to be robust, safe, fun to drive, comfortable and reliable. I have had four-wheel drive dual-cab utes for the last two leases (a Holden Colorado and a Mazda BT50) but I was growing sick of the sore back and rough lumpy ride out on country roads...

I had an older model Mercedes Vito 112CDI – that was very good but ended up with too many kays. I've had two Hyundais which I had nothing but trouble with, but were very comfortable inside...

The more time that passes after a particular chapter of life ends, the less linear the narrative seems to be, every time you try to revisit that chapter...

2003 Renault Clio Expression Verve review

Six and a bit years ago, I needed a cheap temporary car, and after a few too many drinks one night and an online auction, I became the new owner of a nine-year-old Renault Clio with 143,000km. It came time to say goodbye at just after 260,000km when a long trip overseas came calling, the list of things that would need doing in the future came to $1800, and the registration was due...
