Talisman Estate, Renault’s new estate car, is here

Hot on the heels of Renault’s Talisman, revealed to the world in the royal city of Chantilly a year back, big sister Talisman Estate made its début showing to the French press in the pleasant rural setting of the Chevreuse Valley west of Paris. It packs all the virtues of the saloon that appeared in July 2015, with similar dimensions and exuberant proportions, plus all the practicality and versatility you could possibly expect of a large estate car.

Renault Captur test-drive: there's a new crossover in town

Don’t tell them that Captur is a raised Clio – our product managers might have a heart attack. And definitely don’t tell them that Captur is the replacement for Modus – they might want to kill you! No, Captur is a new product from Renault designed for the promising compact crossover segment (already explored by our partner Nissan with the Juke). Even if it reprises the styling of Clio – the new brand identity –, Captur was designed by its own dedicated design team. And just because production of Modus is being terminated as Captur goes into production does not mean it’s a replacement model! We can do a lot with the same platform: a small hatchback, a mini MPV or a compact crossover, with different features for different customers. Let’s take a closer look at this multi-functional crossover that will attract a lot of talk.

Test drive: New Clio Renault Sport 200 EDC, an idea of happiness

Working for Renault tends to provide some quite exceptional experiences. The day I spent on the Guadix circuit in Andalusia with the New Clio R.S. 200 EDC was one of them. Being something of a novice and so before getting behind the wheel it was difficult to imagine eating up a track that features points at 165 km/h in a state of sporting beatitude. Packing a furious engine, flawless body and peerless on-board comfort, the latest jewel from Renault Sport is a joy for all the senses!
