  • CLIO
  • MEGANE
  • KOLEOS
  • CAPTUR
  • KANGOO

Keep in mind that this list focuses on non-commercial vehicles. Information on Renault’s range of work trucks, vans, or buses is available on its website.

Renault CLIO

The Renault Clio is a 2 door, 5 seat Hatch vehicle, and is designed to be a great vehicle for zipping around town. It is also slightly larger than most comparable 2-door Hatch vehicles, meaning there’s plenty of space to enjoy the drive. There are four models in the Clio range:Renault Clio

  • Life
  • Zen
  • Intens
  • GT-Line

Each car offers slightly different features and/or specifications. The Clio Life is the most basic and lowest-priced model, while the Zen, Intens and GT-Line vehicles each take it up an extra notch. That said, even the Clio Life is packed to the roof racks with the latest in driving technology, not to mention Renaults huge range of optional accessories, such as carriers, cargo nets, covers, mudflaps and weathershields.

The Koleos is Renault’s only SUV, offered as either a 2-wheel or 4-wheel drive. The Koleos’ 2 tonne towing capacity mightn’t be as impressive as comparable vehicles on the market, but it compensates for this by offering superior comfort. Renault claims the Koleos has ‘class leading’ leg room, along with 7” capacitive touchscreens, and heated leather seats (Zen & Intens only). The models of Koleos are:Renault Koleos

Renault Captur

The Renault Captur is one of the manufacturer’s most interesting vehicles, why? Well it’s not really an SUV, and it’s not a hatch- it’s a bit of both.

There is only one model of Renault Captur, and comes with the following key features:Renault Captur

The Compact is the basic model, with 2 seats and a 3.0m³ load space; the Maxi is a bit bigger with a 4.0m³; the Crew compromises on load space for extra seating.
