ALL-NEW MEGANE R.S.
CHRIS EVANS LOVES THE MÉGANE R.S. 280 CUP
"Design-wise, it is clear from the off that this is no run-of-the-mill Renault Mégane. It has that predatorily pert, ripped-and-ready-to-explode look of Muscle Beach about it." states Chris Evans.
"It has the intense glare of a superhero just before he smashes some more baddies into oblivion."
The four wheel steer system "works like a dream... and the hydraulic bump stop provides added comfort, while ensuring maximum contact with the road from all four wheels."
"This car is an absolute joy to drive: throw it around like a maniac, have an odd intermittent blast in to brighten up ones daily commute, rag around a track, or simply kick back in and drive normally."

THIRD IN EIGHT CAR GROUP TEST
"It looks sensational...those wide hips give it a real muscular stance that makes it impossible not to stop and stare" reports CAR Magazine.
"The body control is incredible... but the biggest mind bender is the 4Control four-wheel steering system"..."It's the more rewarding steer- balletically poised, infinitely adjustable, the rear-steer magically tweaking geometry to counter roll in quick corners."
SECOND BEST HOT HATCH 2018
"The Mégane R.S. packs the necessary ingredients to mix it with the best of the best."
"It's packed with tech... the 4Control four-wheel steering set up and its hydraulic bumps stops work well to ensure the Mégane R.S. feels suitably pointy... and there is no doubt it does improve the car's agility".
"There's excellent body control yet the passive dampers offer up a very decent ride while the brakes are strong and more than up to the job."

MÉGANE BEATS CIVIC TYPE R
"The car looks absolutely fantastic, Renault have nailed it."
"The interior is beautiful, the car feels solid and expensive."
"There is good body control and it feels flat through the corners."
Whilst the Civic Type R was quicker round the track, both drivers preferred the Mégane R.S.

ZOE R110 FIRST UK TEST DRIVE REVIEWS
"The ZOE feels suited to its environment in a way that few combustion-engined cars do when cooped up in the urban sprawl." reports Autocar.
"The ZOE now makes very short work indeed of nipping away from standing and up to 40mph or so, quite easily leaving the vast majority of town traffic behind."
"It amounts to a town driving experience that is at once liberating and enjoyable."
29th August 2018
"It has all the kit you'd ever need; a seven-inch touchscreen with satnav, auto headlights and wipers, climate control and rear parking sensors all as standard."
"At low speeds it feels much faster than those numbers suggest. The electric motor gives instant throttle reponse, letting the ZOE launch away from junctions and dart into gaps in traffic."
"A near silent drivetrain, light steering and smooth ride makes it easy and relaxing to drive around town."
