Renault is a highly reputable French manufacturer that has won numerous car of the year awards in Europe, Eurasia, Spain, the United States and other countries; among its most awarded vehicles are the Clio, Laguna, Twingo and Megane. The company produces vehicles for all needs, including electric vehicles. Because they are in such high demand, it is easy to find good second-hand deals.
The brand was founded in 1899 by the Renault brothers and grew exponentially until it had its own factories in Spain from 1953. In 2010 Renault signed an agreement with Mercedes-Benz for the exchange of technologies that are reflected in its current engines.
Looking to buy a Renault? It is a very popular brand, we encourage you to visit us and see the interior of some of the models available. We can send it to any point of the peninsula for free and it is revised in our facilities, so you can have total confidence.
Among the most requested models of Renault are:
Renault Clio is possibly one of the brand's most popular models. It is a spacious car that is suitable for all kinds of roads and also offers a whole series of details inside the cabin to make our journeys more comfortable, both in the city and on the road.
The interior is nice and the dashboard features a 7-inch screen that offers the brand's entertainment system, known as R-Link. In terms of passenger space and boot space, it is somewhat larger than other brands in its segment.
When it comes to driving, it is one of the best in its range. It is comfortable to drive and easy to park, with agile steering, which makes it easy to drive. Clio has always been well equipped as standard and can be considered one of the safest cars in its range, so if you decide to buy it, you won't go wrong.
The most basic model is the Clio Life, with hill start assist and keyless start. The Limited model also comes with 16" wheels, a touchscreen navigation system and air conditioning, while the range-topping Zen model comes with rain, light and parking sensors and climate control.
Renault Grand Scenic
In the midst of the SUV boom we find this family monovolume, ideal for those who are not convinced by the aesthetics of the Crossovers or need even more space. When reviewing the Renault Grand Scenic we would look at its elegance, it is comfortable and designed for large families, it also has a very complete range of standard equipment. If you are looking for a car that can seat up to 7 passengers, this may be the car for you.
It's a comfortable vehicle to travel in, ideal for those looking for a relaxed and smooth driving style. As you sit in the driver's seat, the first thing you notice is the large front window that makes you feel like you're driving a car without a roof. The side windows in the rear seats are equipped with a sunblind, should you wish to block out the sun or seek some privacy.
One of the things to look out for in an MPV is rear seat space; Renault Grand Scenic provides plenty of room that can be expanded or collapsed thanks to its sliding rear seats; passengers will be comfortable no matter how big or small they are. The two rear seats can be folded down, making the boot even larger.
It is available with petrol or diesel engines, either manual or automatic.
Its rivals would be Citroen C4 Picasso, Toyota Verso or Opel Zafira among others.
The Renault Megane is a great choice for anyone looking for a spacious, stylish, well-equipped family car without spending a lot of money. It's a model that competes with the Ford Focus or Golf, but at a much lower price.
A diesel engine is available with 95-160 hp power, and a petrol engine with 100-150 hp power, with a choice of 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. The suspension is smooth and capable of absorbing road irregularities.
It is certainly a car that will appeal to buyers tired of conservative designs, looking for the different touch that Renault has been able to bring to this model. The entertainment system is not the best, nor is the quality of the interior. It is the price that captures our attention, thanks to the extras offered in the most basic version. The seats, which are already very comfortable as standard and do not envy the top of the range, stand out. The top-of-the-range models, such as the GT Line and mid-range, feature a TomTom sat nav with traffic alert.
Those looking for much more should look at the Megane RS, already with 300 hp and equipment commensurate with the outlay required.
Alternatives to this vehicle could be the Ford Focus, Kia Ceed or Opel Astra.
Renault Captur aims to satisfy those looking for a family crossover, with attractive lines and a spacious interior. It's a car that handles better in the city than on the road, and although visually it's easy to imagine it on off-road terrain, it won't be where it feels most comfortable.
The basic version is available with a manual gearbox, although an automatic transmission is also available as an option. Key features of this vehicle include ease of driving, removable and washable seat covers, adjustable trunk space and great visibility from the driver's seat. It is available exclusively in front-wheel drive, so some will not be able to opt for a version more suited to their off-road adventures; we hope however that this will change in future versions.
There are several engine options, with the 0.9-litre engine being the basic and most fuel-efficient option. But you can find it also the 1.5dci with 110 hp in diesel along with the 1.2 and 1.3 petrol TCe.
Safety systems include 4 airbags and ISOFIX installation in the front passenger seat and rear, it also has tyre pressure loss warning and hill start assist which is not bad at all. For more equipment we will have to go to a higher range.
Competitors would include the Seat Arona, Kia Sportage or Volkswagen T-Roc.
If you like spacious SUVs and the Captur doesn't quite fit the bill for you, then this Renault Kadjar might just be the car to buy. It's comfortable, spacious and beautifully designed, but let's take a closer look.
With the exception of basic options like the Life, this car comes with a lot of extras as standard. You should at least look for the Zen version which includes sat nav, dual zone climate control and a few other safety features among other extras. Although there is an all-wheel drive version, we wouldn't recommend paying extra unless you really think you'll need it.
It's a comfortable car to drive, with both the front and rear seats providing enough comfort for long journeys.
When it comes to engine choice, the 140 hp TCE version should be sufficient for most potential buyers, and fuel consumption is very low, making it a cheap car to maintain. It is available with either a manual or automatic transmission, the latter being an EDC dual-clutch transmission. There are petrol and diesel options, although with such low fuel consumption, many buyers when looking for a second-hand car decide to go for the one that offers the best value for money.
Consumption figures are around 6.5 litres/100km when looking at the 140 PS 1.3 petrol version; very little difference compared to the 115 PS diesel and its 5.0 l/100km.
The popularity of large SUVs will make it easier to find a pre-owned Renault Kadjar, so if you are interested in buying second-hand, come and visit our dealership.
Among the main competitors are the Nissan Qashqai sharing the same engines and platform, although the Renault offers a little more space inside. The Seat Ateca or the Volkswagen Tiguan are other options to consider when choosing.
