  • Renault Megane Coupe 2.0 TCe 180 (2008) review

    Price:  £18,145

    03 November 2008 by Anthony ffrench-Constant

    Though the front always struck me as a tad clunky and corporate, I’ve long admired the relentlessly shaken and gently stirring rump of this new Renault Megane’s predecessor. Trouble is, it seems that...

  • Renaultsport Megane R26R (2008) CAR review and video

    Price:  £22,990

    27 October 2008 by Chris Chilton

    Dreaming of a Porsche 911 GT3 RS but living with a hot hatch budget? Renault’s stripped-to-the-bones Megane R26R is the answer. Based on the acclaimed R26, the R version is the most extreme factory...

  • Renault Laguna Coupe 3.0 V6 dCi (2008) CAR review, video

    Price:  £27,995

    22 October 2008 by Guy Bird

    The Renault Laguna Coupe is the best-looking car the recently ‘design-troubled’ French brand has produced for years. That might not be such an achievement given Renault’s current line-up, but...

  • Renault Megane five-door: where's the bustleback gone?

    Renault Megane 1.5dCi (2008) review

    Price:  £15,795

    17 October 2008 by Phil McNamara

    Renault split opinion with the outgoing Megane 2. You know, that shakey-ass marketing. The distinctive, bustleback styling. A classic Marmite car, in fact. The sad thing is, the marketing suits have...

  • Renault Clio Cup (2008) CAR review

    Renault Clio Cup (2008) review

    Price:  £14,995

    24 September 2008 by Nick Trott

    The Clio Renaultsport Cup is the third Clio to receive the ‘Cup’ moniker. Following in the wheel tracks and skidmarks of the deeply entertaining Clio II 172 Cup and 182 Cup, the Clio Renaultsport 197...

  • Renault Twingo Renaultsport 133 (2008) review

    Price:  £11,550

    29 August 2008 by Chris Chilton

    Renault has just unleashed the Twingo Renaultsport. It's the £11,500 little brother to the Clio 197, so it's a bargain, but is it any good? A new-to-the-range 1.6-litre engine provides decent grunt,...

  • Renault Scenic ZEV H2 prototype (2008) review

    27 June 2008 by Richard Aucock

    Renault, that so traditional and straight-laced of car companies. It makes sensible family cars and MPVs for sensible folk. The Regie doesn’t do revolution lightly. But, for the past decade, it’s...

  • Renault Koleos Privilège dCi 175 (2008) review

    Price:  £24,695

    02 May 2008 by Christopher Hubbard

    When the Renault Koleos was unveiled at the Geneva motor show the original press information claimed that this was an SUV that 'handles like a hatchback'. But those words have disappeared...

  • Renault Laguna GT dCi 180 Sport Tourer (2008) review

    Price:  £22,170

    10 April 2008 by Ben Whitworth

    When it arrived late last year we gave Renault’s Laguna a bit of a pasting for its dull looks and overall lack of appeal. There wasn't much wrong with its driving dynamics, and Renault’s claim for...

  • Renault Megane Coupe Concept (2008) review

    Price:  £16,500

    31 March 2008 by Ged Maxwell

    Even Renault people admit the current Megane is something of a Marmite car: you either love it or hate it. But that could be about to change as Renault reveals a replacement this...

  • Renault Laguna Sport Tourer 2.0 dCi 175 Dynamique S (2008) review

    Price:  £21,400

    15 January 2008 by James Foxall

    Renault’s new Laguna hasn’t impressed us yet. Purposively conservative looks, a slightly cramped interior, and a drive that can’t touch that of the Mondeo all count against it. But maybe the Sport...

  • Renault Grand Modus 1.2 TCE front three-quarter

    Renault Grand Modus 1.2 TCE 100 (2007) review

    Price:  £11,850

    14 December 2007 by Peter Burgess

    You have to hand it to Renault. After the success of the original Espace, it didn’t sit on its laurels. The Scenic that followed had an even greater impact and had the kudos of being a truly original...

  • Renault Clio Sport Tourer 1.5 dCi (2007) review

    Price:  £14,320

    14 December 2007 by Peter Burgess

    The common sense answer to needing a supermini with more room is to buy a Megane-sized hatchback. And the Megane is an apt example here. Not only is it from Renault, it’s sufficiently dimensionally...

    19 October 2007 by CJ Hubbard

    Ooo, shiny. What is this fine-looking thing? This is – are you ready? – a Renault. Yes, honestly. The company that currently specialises in boring family carry-alls and hardcore hot hatches has...

  • Renault Laguna Active (2007) Drive review

    Price:  £25,000

    14 September 2007 by Richard Aucock

    What’s all this then? A Laguna with the agility of a Porsche Boxster. Through a slalom, it will turn in instantly, change direction with comparable speed – but not hint at the dreaded pendulum. Your...

  • Renault Laguna Dynamique 1.5 dCi 110 (2007) review

    Price:  £17,100

    23 August 2007 by Ben Pulman

    Saloon Why is Renault even bothering to make another Laguna? Because the so-called D-segment isn’t dead, yet. Although this market sector peaked at 3.4m European sales in 1998, nearly one million cars...
