If you're wondering why you're seeing so many Renault Meganes on Australian roads recently. this journalist would suggest first looking at the roads a little further from home.

Because with a presence in 128 countries around the world and countless significant motorsport victories, it’s fair to say that Renault always has something to celebrate. However, with the recent launch of their latest European masterpiece in Australia - the stylish Renault Megane - we’re guessing those celebrations are far from over.

With one eye on their innovative history and the other fixed firmly on the future, Renault are a brand to watch in 2014. In fact, few Australians are aware that the European industry leader employs over 120.000 workers around the world. many of whom are strongly involved in Renault's innovative electric vehicle development plans. And. with a 37.1% share in the electric car market last year it seems their spot as eco-leader is already well cemented.

But it’s Renault’s flagship model. the Megane. that really illustrates everything the French brand has become famous for. Style. Sophistication. Substance. In fact. while the range may appear worthy of the catwalk, the Renault Megane RS model is just as worthy of the winner's podium - the model recently setting a new front-wheel-drive lap record around the Nfirburgring,

With the number of Meganes on Australian roads now reaching record levels. it makes sense that Renault are continually working to make owning one of their distinctive vehicles a rewarding experience. The brand is pleasing all of its new passenger car owners with an impressive five year warranty and a reassuring three year capped price servicing arrangement.

All in all. Renault is a brand to watch — particularly if you enjoy the idea of driving a European style icon that is surprisingly affordable.
