Renault internationally focuses on high levels of service and support for their customers. Currently there are 15 models available ranging from the Clio to the Master. The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance has been a major strategic advantage for all three companies.

The car names you've probably been mispronouncing this whole time

Fancy yourself a car enthusiast? While being an enthusiastic car owner and a good driver are both part of your overall street cred, a lot of it comes down to being able to talk the torque. And where many of us can come undone when showing off our automotive prowess is butchering the pronunciation of brand or model names as badly as Kim from Kath & Kim used to pronounce 'chardonnay' (she said 'kar-don-aye', for the record)...

2020 Renault Kadjar Zen review

We've established the top-spec Kadjar is a good thing. Does that translate down the range?

The Renault Kadjar slots between the Captur and Koleos, walking the line between two of Australia's most popular segments. It's an appealing offering in Intens spec.

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...

Kona or Kadjar? Established player or French upstart?

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...

1969 Renault 16 TS review

It’s summer 1984. I set out from Oakleigh on my bicycle on my way to the Department of Anatomy, Monash University, where I’m doing my honours degree in Science, looking at neural plasticity in the avian visual system, of all things. About ten minutes into my trip, half way there, Melbourne’s famous weather kicks in, and I get absolutely soaked in a sudden downpour...

2005 Renault Megane Dynamique LX review

One fine, sunny day many years ago, my wife said to me "I think we should get a convertible. I'd look good in a convertible". At the time we were a young couple with a 20-month old toddler. While most people in that bracket go looking for a wagon or an SUV, we brought home our first drop-head - a 1991 Ford Capri Verde...

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...

2018 Renault Trafic LWB Crew Lifestyle review

I've owned several vans over the years, as I've worked in the building trade most of my life, and because of this occupation, you get yourself into many different predicaments on a daily basis. 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...
