Renault’s Fab Captur

By |2018-01-24T20:11:49+10:00January 24th, 2018|Car Reviews by Brand, Gay cars fit for a queen?, Renault Reviews|0 Comments

Renault is a brand which sails under a lot of radars, but I think it deserves to have more buyer’s bums on seats, if only for a test drive. Captur is Renault’s baby SUV and is built on the same platform as the Clio (and the unlovable Nissan Juke). The 88kw/190Nm 4 cylinder turbo petrol engine drives the [...]

Renault’s Koloes: big, ya can’t miss it

By |2018-01-18T21:00:33+10:00January 18th, 2018|Gay cars fit for a queen?, Renault Reviews, SUV|0 Comments

After becoming a uncle, my perspective on cars and reviewing their features and functionality has changed somewhat. Less is it about fun, cool tech and performance and more focused on practicality, space and ISOFIX ports. Boring huh? After spending more than a couple of weeks in the Renault Koleos Intens I can safely say it is a fantastic family car. [...]

VIDEO REVIEW Please note: Torque incorrectly given as 135Nm. Should be 190Nm Renault Clio Intens and Zen https://youtu.be/b_6Wi4eVVVw What we like: fabulous looks, comfort, loads of tech, walk away locking Not so much: jerky DCT, manual only in base model, no CarPlay Silly names, but great cars, Renault’s Zen and Intens are brilliant city car packages. A 2,589 wheelbase [...]

2017 Renault Megane GT review

By |2019-06-30T14:42:26+10:00July 24th, 2017|4 Cylinder, AAA, Car Reviews by Brand, Hatchback, Renault Reviews, Video Reviews|0 Comments

What an absolute peach. From time to time, I get swept away in a wave of enthusiastic fervor, especially when hot-hatching.  Megane is deserving of every ounce enthusiasm. Most small cars are not in the least bit engaging, but Megane GT does it in spades. Outside: The exterior is bold, very bold. It makes big statements with massive LED [...]

Renault’s Quite Koleos

By |2017-03-10T14:12:09+10:00December 16th, 2016|Renault Reviews, SUV|0 Comments

    The formula is simple: safe, spacious, comfort, in a tasteful exterior with a luscious cabin. Many have tried, but most have churned out the mediocre, bordering on dull. I like the ample bosom of the Koleos. It is considerably larger than the old model. Outgoing Koleos (mm) All-New Koleos (mm) Overall length 4,520 4,672 Wheelbase 2,690 2,705 Front [...]

Clever Clio RS: A Cute and Quick Renault

By |2017-03-10T14:40:07+10:00October 7th, 2014|Renault Reviews|0 Comments

YES YES YES oh YES: sexy inside and out, snappy performance, a brilliant drive Oh dear me no: no manual, slightly slow EDC auto What a cracker! Once, Hot Hatches conjured images of fake Burberry set caps at jaunty angles, loud exhausts, and beards fashioned into faint outlines on a face. “Da Boyz” gathered like flocks of gulls in distant [...]

Renault GT220: A Delicious Hatch That’s Just on the Boil

By |2017-03-10T14:40:12+10:00September 17th, 2014|Hot Hatch, Renault Reviews|5 Comments

  Yes Yes Yes oh YES: sexy, fast, ultra smooth engine, great gearbox, fabulous ride Oh dear me no: no reverse camera on pov-model, hard-to-use muti-function control stalk, poorly placed cups holders. I love French cars. I love their quirks, which in any other cars would be annoying. They are full of Gaelic charm and are either reviled or celebrated [...]
