Good: Clio based SUV that combines height of an SUV with space of an MPV and driving attributes of a sporty hatchback.
Bad: Competes directly with Peugeot 2008, Vauxhall Mokka, Nissan Juke, etc.
Good: Bigger, better looking, yet lighter Clio an improvement on previous model, both 90 TCe petrol and 90 dCI diesel under 100g/km CO2, 90 TCe very smooth, heavier 90 dCI has better road feel
Bad: Interior quality doesn't match rivals, UK cars have offset pedals and wheel, steering on 90 TCe a little light
Good: Great handling and grip, improved refinement and ride compared to previous version, better quality interior feel, a very useable hot hatch.
Bad: Has lost the raw edge of the old Clio Renaultsport. No manual gearbox only a twin-clutch EDC with paddleshifts.
Good: Electric powered compact saloon, refined and comfortable, 100 mile range, battery can be leased for £70 a month.
Bad: Small saloons not very popular here.
Good: Versatile and user-friendly compact van, economical 1.5 dCi engines improved for 2013 with start/stop, Z.E all-electric version available with range of 105 miles.
Bad: Short wheelbase Compact version no longer available.
Good: Bold new range of monocoque frame front and rear driver vans from the market leader. Economical new 2.3 litre chain cam diesel engine.
Bad: Double passenger seat squabs too short for long distance comfort.
Good: Soft riding, yet fine handling hatchback with superb steering. Improved for 2012 with new chain cam 1.2 TCe 115 petrol engine and excellent chain cam 1.6 dCi 130 diesel.
Bad: Some interesting new engines, especially new low emission 1.6 dCi 130. Less practical coupe is better looking.
Good: Fine riding and handling and stunning looking coupe just £400 more than the five-door hatch.
Bad: Poor rear visibility, getting in and out of the back is hard work, fiddly stereo and sat nav system.
Good: Stylish looks, impressive glass-panelled folding roof, comfortable and relaxing to drive, good quality interior, useable boot space, refined even with the roof down.
Bad: Fiddly sat nav and stereo, fairly pointless rear seats, emissions and fuel consumption of top dCi 160 on the high side.
Good: Excellent combination of smooth power, good steering, surefootedness and ride quality, even on 19" wheels with 235/35 tyres. Top of the class.
Bad: Gearchange its only jarring feature. Not as good as the rest of the car.
Good: Stylish station wagon of 2009 Megane, with same range of low CO2 engines, decent handling and steering, versatile interior.
Bad: Surprisingly for a rep's car, no cupholders.
Good: Third generation Scenic ticks all the boxes, comfortable for seven, great chain-cam water-cooled petrol turbo 1.4 TCe 130 engine. Brilliant new chain-cam 1.6 dCi 130 diesel engine from mid 2011.
Bad: 2.0 dCi torque a bit disappointing.
Good: Bridges the gap between an MPV and a crossover SUV. Comes with XGrip system.
Bad: Doesn't have a real 4x4 set-up.

Good: Revamped Twingo, first Renault with new corporate styling, dCi version just 85g/km CO2, retains rear seats that slide.
Bad: A revamp rather than an all-new car.
Good: New Twingo gets an unconventional rear engined and rear-wheel drive design. Developed alongside new Smart ForFour.
Bad: Not arriving until late 2014.
Good: Electrically powered with a 50 miles range. Quirky mix of a moped and small city two-seater. Ideal for city commuting.
Bad: Doors are an optional extra. Minimal protection from the elements. Can't be parked in motorcycle bays or driven in bus lanes. Top speed of 53mph.
Good: Sensibly priced compact four-seater electric car. Cute and funky styling. Punchy and smooth to drive around town. 130 miles maximum range.
Bad: Sluggish at higher speeds in Eco mode. Cannot be charged from a standard three-pin socket. You have to pay to lease the battery adding to running costs.
