Following on from its début appearance on Chinese soil at the Beijing Motor Show last year, Renault's Captur crossover is now making a big impression at the 2015 Shanghai Motor Show, judging from the interest it is getting from the hoards of photographers there. The SUV segment is the fastest-growing on the Chinese motor market, with growth topping 30% according to estimates published by CAAM, the Chinese Association of Automotive Manufacturers. Read on for a closer look at the phenomenon.
Since early March, there's been a steady stream of journalists and bloggers on the tarmac at Nîmes Airport. The media professionals are coming in to put New Espace through its paces; there's a twenty-strong fleet ready and waiting near a hangar. The location is deliberately original, a nod to the high-tech aviation inspiration that underlies the design of Renault's new crossover. So fasten your seatbelts for take-off into the wonderful motoring world of New Espace.
Some of you will have already had a chance to see the House of Cards star in the latest Renault commercial, for New Espace, which shows the great American actor finally getting to enjoy true motoring pleasure, at the wheel of the world's greatest MPV.

As guest members of ZE ZOE TEAM in the sixth Monte-Carlo ZENN Rally (for Zero Emission No Noise), we could hardly have hoped for a better finish. There were four ZOEs in the first four places.

In this year's Monte Carlo ZENN Rally, ZE ZOE TEAM has entered four Renault ZOE cars, manned by a surprising mix of real specialists in regularity and eco-driving rallies along with some absolute beginners.
