Geneva 2015: Renault

  • Renault's Qashqai alternative promises low running costs
  • Worth considering over the Nissan?
  • Hotter version of Clio Renaultsport also unveiled

Cars on show: Kadjar, Clio Renaultsport 220 Trophy EDC

Kadjar (pictured above)

Silly name aside, this is Renault's answer to the Nissan Qashqai. This means it's a medium-sized SUV with a choice of two- or four-wheel drive and tonnes of appeal to family buyers.

It offers a big boot, loads of kit and some efficient engines.

Worth the wait?

It's an alternative entry into this popular sector offering low-cost family transport, but leaves us a little cold in the face of more interesting rivals. It'll be interesting to see how it fares on the road.

Clio Renaultsport 220 Trophy EDC

It's a hotter version of the hot version of the Clio that gets more performance, improved handling and faster gear shifts. Stiffer chassis, quicker steering and seriously sticky rubber from Michelin will improve the performance hatchback's appeal to enthusiasts. Read the full Renault Clio Renaultsport review here.

Worth the wait?

If you are a dedicated driving fan than the improvements will appeal, plus it's not long to wait as it goes on sale in summer 2015. Price will need to be keen though.
