Renault Reviews

New Cars
Good: Based on Nissan Navara. 3.5 tonne towing capacity. Double cab models will use five-link rear suspension set-up.
Bad: No release date for UK models.
Good: Well priced, with good equipment levels. Compact dimensions but with SUV driving position. Car-like handling. Child-friendly removable, washable seat covers.
Bad: Interior quality could be better. Not good to drive or as capable in all weathers as Peugeot 2008.
Good: Bigger and better looking Clio an improvement on previous model. Both 90 TCe petrol and 90 dCI diesel under 100g/km CO2.
Bad: Interior quality doesn't match rivals. UK cars have offset pedals and wheel. Steering on 90 TCe a little light.
Good: Impressive handling and grip. Improved refinement and ride compared to previous version. Vastly improved by 220 Trophy model on 18-inch Michelin Pilot SuperSports.
Bad: Lost the raw edge of the old Clio Renaultsport. No manual gearbox option only twin-clutch EDC with paddleshifts.
Good: Stunning for a big MPV. Massive inside yet very calm behind the wheel. Reasonably priced and, in higher trim levels, passes for a luxurious experience. Every version has 20-inch wheels: stylish.
Bad: You’ll need a top-spec car (near enough) for the best infotainment. It’s as involving to drive as its bus-like proportions suggest. Every version has 20-inch wheels: costly.
Good: Renault styled alternative to Nissan Qashqai. 4WD handles well due to independent rear suspension. Refined. Reasonably economical. Choice of 1.5 110PS or 1.6 130PS dCi.
Bad: Ride of 2WD can feel unsettled less than perfect road surfaces. (4WD on 60 profile tyres very good). Only one 1.2 turbo petrol engine.
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: Well-equipped as standard. Lots of rear legroom. Quiet and refined. Like a bigger, more sophisticated Kadjar. Handles well on the road in AWD mode.
Bad: Smaller load area than some rivals. No seven seat option. No petrol engines in 2017. No paddles for the X-Tronic CVT.
Good: Cheaper to buy new than the previous Master. Economical 2.3-litre chain cam dCi diesel engine. Good looking front end styling.
Bad: Double passenger seat squabs too short for long distance comfort.
Good: Excellent cabin quality, a superb (and massive) touchscreen infotainment setup, very well priced and equipped, surprisingly quiet diesel engines.
Bad: Lower specification models have a dull cabin, four-wheel steer can feel odd, GT model isn't very exciting.
Good: Estate version of new Megane promises high quality interior and low running costs.
Bad: Not arriving until September 2016.
Good: Practical back row and large boot. Generous level of standard safety technology. Easy to drive.
Bad: Standard-fit 20-inch wheels impact ride quality. Tyres are an unusual size. High tech electronic mean heating and ventilation is controlled by a vertical touch screen.
Good: Improved Trafic gets a new 1.6 diesel engine available as a twin-turbo version Interior has been overhauled. L1 now capable of carrying three Euro pallets.
Bad: Technically not an all-new van rather a thorough revamp. Some minor material issues in the cabin.
Good: MPV version of the impressive Trafic panel van. Offered with Renault's excellent twin-turbo diesels. All will have space for nine adults.
Bad: Won't reach the UK until late 2017.
Good: Fun to drive in town. Easy to park and manoeuvre. Tight turning circle. Spacious inside. Cheap sunroof option.
Bad: Expensive to buy. Lacks motorway refinement. Limited seat adjustment. Not as many on the streets as stablemate Smart ForFour.
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. Extra cost battery extends range to 180 miles from 2017.
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.
