Established in 1899, Renault is one of the world's leading manufacturers of cars and commercial vehicles. The French company is now part of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance and, with a strong heritage in motor racing, the marque uses its unrivalled expertise and experience in F1 to enhance the efficiency, performance and reliability of its road cars. Renault has a wide range of models and body styles to suit all lifestyles and budgets. With a choice of efficient petrol and diesel engines - as well as 100% electric vehicles - Renault offers all the cost benefits of lower emissions and cheaper fuel bills without compromising on performance and driving pleasure.
If environmentally friendly urban driving is top of your wish list, then there’s a couple of Renaults that could be right for you. The one-of-a-kind Twizy is an ultra-compact 100% electric quadricycle that offers seating for two and zero driving emissions, while the Zoe supermini is a fully-electric city car with space for four adults. The small and stylish Clio hatchback may have been around for a long time, but, thanks to regular facelifts, these days the model boasts stylish good looks and a whole host of up-to-the-minute technology. The ever-popular Mégane range is available as a hatchback and Sport Tourer (estate) and also comes as a sporty ‘RS’ variant.
The Renault range also includes three SUVs, the small crossover Captur, the mid-size crossover SUV Kadjar and the Koleos SUV, which has enough space for all the family as well as plenty of luggage. There’s also a good choice in MPVs for those looking to transport larger groups of people in comfort. The practical five-seat Scenic and seven-seater Grand Scenic are good value for money and offer both style and practicality. And the Trafic Passenger, based on Renault’s popular van, is a minibus that can comfortably seat up to nine people.
