2020 Renault Megane RS Trophy automatic review

The French brands pocket-rocket has grown up, but is it a regression or progression on one of the best hot-hatches around?

REVIEW: 2020 Renault Kadjar Zen

We've said this once, but we'll say it again. The Kadjar is just what the doctor ordered for Renault in Australia. We've established the top-spec Kadjar is a good thing. Does that translate down the range? Trent Nikolic finds out.

2020 Renault Koleos: A fresh perspective

Sponsored by Renault The Renault Koleos SUV is a top-selling model in Australia. It is stylish, well-featured, and represents great value. But rather than take our word for it, we interviewed a group of new car buyers about what they were looking for in their next car, and have invited three of them to come and have a closer look at the 2020 Koleos...

Medium SUV off-road test: Toyota RAV4, Holden Equinox, Mazda CX-5, Renault Koleos, Subaru Forester, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Volkswagen Tiguan, Honda CR-V and Nissan X-Trail

We all know your rationale when it comes to buying a medium-sized SUV with all-wheel drive. You want a vehicle with more room for the kid(s) – or kid(s) that are coming – but you also have in the back of your mind that one day you might need to go off-road. Anybody that's done any proper off-roading knows that the type of off-roading you think you're going to do, compared to the type you'll actually do, is very different...

2018 Renault Koleos Life X-tronic (4x2) review

So, before I start off this review I will admit this is a courtesy car while my own car is in for repairs. We have put about 800km on the clock, with mixed-use driving. I was pretty excited to get handed the keys to a practically brand new car, so after signing the forms and saying bye to my car for a little bit, I jumped into the 2018 Koleos...

2005 Renault Clio Sport Cup F1 Team Ed review

The year was 2005 and I stood scruffy-haired, fresh license in hand, starting to ponder what first car I would get. Unfortunately, reality hit like a freight train and I soon realised that the hot hatches I had been seeing on TV and around town would be out of reach, mainly due to the price of insurance (in the UK at the time)...

2010 Renault Clio RS 200 Gordini Edition review

Nature or nurture? I come from a family of decidedly motoring non-enthusiasts, but have been mad about cars and anything mechanical since before I could speak. My father recounts with a great deal of humour how I would jump up in the back seat of the HQ as a two-year old and point at cars and make all sorts of excited noises when I saw a car I liked...

2005 Renault Clio Sport Cup review

In a time when cars are becoming more and more anaesthetic and more insulated, technology and numbers on paper seem to dominate what a buyer looks for a car. Once upon a time it was how it made the driver feel, how nice the gearshift was and how engaging it was to punt around. Oh, how times have changed...
