2013 Renault Trafic 2.0 dCi LWB review

  Over the last three years, day in and day out, I have been driving my work's 2013 Renault Trafic LWB van. Coming from a Suzuki Swift, the first things I noticed were its extremely high seating position as well as its overall dimensions. Starting off, the biggest thing I noticed was the horrible automatic gearbox...

2017 Renault Clio RS 200 Sport review

For a small French-based car, the Renault Clio RS is an unsuspecting powerhouse of super-impressive performance and handling. The Clio is definitely showing its racing roots in the new 2017 models. With launch control standard and superior handling, this car is everything you would ever want out of a hatchback...

2014 Renault Master SWB Low review

A Note from the Editor: CarAdvice has supplied a photo with this review as an image from the author was unavailable. I purchased a white short-version L1H1 brand-new mid 2014, and have just done (only) 55,000km due to mainly local work and a genuine dislike of traffic jams. As a landscaper I need a variety of tools, and the 8m³ cargo volume is fantastic...

2012 Renault Koleos Dynamique (4x2) review

We bought our 2012 Renault Koleos brand new in 2012, with the idea that our first child wouldn't be too far down the line. We test-drove so many different cars and SUVs, but after driving a few, my wife loved the height of an SUV and the compact packaging. At around 4.5m long, most mid-size SUVs were the same length as her old Pulsar, making them easy to park but with significantly more room inside...

2016 Renault Megane GT-Line Premium review

  After having a company car for the past 30 years, I had to purchase my own car after retirement. I wanted a car that was economical as I had to pay for the fuel myself. The Renault Megane GT-Line 1.5-litre turbo diesel gives me just over 1000km per tank at around 58L to fill. The car has plenty of power and handles well...

2015 Renault Clio RS200 Sport review

We purchased the little Renault for my wife. We both loved the performance and the styling of the Clio, and we liked the way the car looks like a coupe but has five doors. My wife also liked the red stitching in the seats and the red seatbelts. The five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty also helped make our minds up about buying the car...

1985 Renault Fuego GTX review

  After purchasing this little French rocket a month ago, I finally made it to country NSW to pick this little car up from the previous owner. Now, many people asked me "Why are you doing this? You wont make it back! Yadda yadda..." But, to the naysayers I say this..

2017 Renault Koleos Intens (4x4) Review

I have owned two previous Koleos's. I picked up my new Intens two weeks ago, which seems to be light years ahead of the old model in terms of space, finish and technology. I looked at the Hyundai Santa Fe and Tuscon, the Kia Sportage, Isuzu, VW Tiguan and Toyota RAV4. Nothing came close in terms of features for the price...

2005 Renault Clio Sport 182 Cup F1 review

Research, magazine reviews, and word of mouth confirmed this Clio would be insane fun. Evo, Car and many other UK car mags that I had read years ago loved the Clio, and the first test drive of one confirmed all of the quirks and awesomeness. The particular colour (French Racing Blue) was a big pull, as were the aftermarket wheels and Koni/Eibach suspension combo...

2012 Renault Megane Rs 265 Trophy Review

If an engaging, smile-inducing, hard edged hot hatch is your thing, the Renault Sport Megane RS265 has you covered. Around town and as a daily driver, the RS has its drawbacks. The ride is firm with a capital F. Although composed and not crashy, it can be pretty tough commuting on our rugged roads...

2015 Renault Captur Dynamique Review

6 months in, still happy. The quirky, French baby SUV still manages to put a smile of inner satisfaction in me. Driving the Dynamique model of the range has been a pleasure - although there are a few quirks that tend to bug me. Overall the comfort level of the Captur is exceptional. With the combination of comfort, functionality and ride engagement, this is a fun and smooth vehicle...
