Renault Koleos review: Can the 5-seat SUV make its mark?

By

French brands have never really succeeded in selling larger cars in the UK. There's one notable exception: the Renault Espace, a ground-breaking people carrier that did will in the 80s and 90s.But in 2017 — despite there being an all-new Espace which... >>

Renault Scenic (2017) review: The master of reinvention

By

Reinventing any vehicle represents a challenge. Change the name and you'll lose customers, keep the same name and you create certain expectations. And with the Scenic, Renault has one of the most distinctive names in the business - the car that started... >>

This is the fourth-generation Renault Megane - the French company's mid-sized family hatchback, which has been with us since 1995. In that time, Renault has sold over a half a million of the things in the UK.Whereas its Volkswagen Golf competitor evolves... >>

Renault Zoe review: Electrical engineering

By

It's been a typical complaint of the modern electric car that - from the perspective of asking price - most are simply too expensive to make sense. As one of the leaders in the electric-mobility revolution, Renault has sought to challenge that notion... >>

Renault Kadjar first drive: French-kissed Qashqai

Ka-jar. Say it phonetically and fast and the name of Renault's new crossover doesn't sound quite so weird. Ok, we might have lied about that. We sometimes wonder whether all the good product names have now been used up. So much so that companies – and... >>

Renault Twingo review: Dynamique TCe 90 hits the streets

By

Going against the grain is unusual in the automotive world. Standardisation, lowering the risk factor of product failure and making things easy to mass produce is the name of the game. Which is why unusual or new types of car are so rare.When the Renault... >>

Renault started the supermini revolution back in the late 70s with the classic Renault 5. It did it again with the first generation Twingo in the early 90s - a car that never came to the UK. So it's perhaps not the greatest shock to see the company reinventing... >>

Renault Clio RenaultSport 200 Turbo EDC Lux review

By

Pocket-lint is quite fond of the RenaultSport Clio. In fact, we’ve owned two of the previous versions, one of which is still in our possession.But we come to the new 200 Turbo Clio - or 200T as we refer to it - with some trepidation. Taking it out for... >>

BMW has announced its i3 electric car - and by all accounts it's a cracker. But there's another company that has its eggs heavily invested in the electric car basket right now: the Renault-Nissan alliance and launch of the Renault Zoe. It's got us more... >>

Back in happier times, Renault made groundbreaking cars. Historians may quibble, but the company ultimately created the supermini (Renault 5), the people carrier (Espace) and then the small MPV (Scenic). How times have changed: you can’t even buy an... >>

There's never been much point in approaching a RenaultSport product from the perspective of say advanced technology or design aesthetics. Historically, if you wanted a hot hatch and you wanted the best, most raw, connected driving experience in an affordable... >>

RenaultSport Megane 265 Cup

In the land of the hot hatch RenaultSport would be king. Back in the Eighties, when this type of car truly took off, Peugeot and VW – with the 205 GTi and the Golf GTi – were the kings of transforming euro shopping trollies into cheap ways to get... >>

First drive: Renault Clio

Remember when the Clio was advertised by Nicole and Papa? Or when it proclaimed to have va-va-voom long before Mazda got zoom-zoom? Well, so does Renault. Having sold 12 Million Clios since the first generation in 1991, it’s now launching the brand... >>

The fourth-generation Renault Clio took over the entire Renault stand in Paris. Illuminated under hundreds of beautiful globe lights, which gently changed colour and bobbed up and down, an array of red, orange and yellow Clios spread out across the Renault... >>

The first time you see a Renault Twizy on the road, we suspect one of two things will happen. You’ll either laugh. A lot. Or you’ll be desperate to have a go. But get over the fact that it’s got a name that only the French could come up with and... >>

When it first appeared in 1996, the original Scenic broke ground as the first "small" people carrier to hit our roads. It did without the seven seats of existing people carriers such as its big brother Espace, but brought all that was loved about that... >>

Renault has bet big on electric cars. Bigger than any other car company in fact - and by 2013 it’ll have four of them for sale in the form of the recently launched Kangoo Z.E. Van, Twizy scooter/car hybrid, Clio-sized Zoe and this, the Fluence Z.E.... >>

Over the past decade-and-a-bit, Renault’s performance division, RenaultSport, has given us a string of hotted-up Clios and Meganes, providing those of us with petrol in our veins an accessible way into fast, front-wheel drive cars - ones that seemed... >>
