Renault formally established in 1899 grew from France across Europe and eventually to Australia in 1999 with help of the Nissan and Mitsubishi alliance. 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.

2021 Renault Captur review

The small-SUV landscape has changed dramatically since the first Renault Captur, but then so has the Captur itself.

2021 Renault Master mid-wheelbase (MWB) review

Video: 360-degree drive: 2021 Renault Megane RS Trophy Automatic

Make sure to change the settings to 5K for the best quality. We drive over Peats Ferry Bridge on the Old Pacific Highway across the Hawkesbury River in the Renault Megane RS Trophy.

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...

2017 Renault Trafic LWB Review

NOTE: Library image used as none provided by the owner Having driven this van for two years (at the time of writing this) I can honestly say it has been very reliable. But for Renault to take a stance in this country they really need to talk to their customers on some of the design issues...

2012 Renault Clio RS Angel And Demon review

It's a cool Saturday morning. Before setting off on a spirited drive, it is widely recommended to allow the machine to warm itself up before hitting the road. I climb into the driver's seat awkwardly as I try to limit contact with the immaculate right side bolsters. While my right foot is on the middle pedal, I trigger the engine start procedure from the centre console...

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.
