Renault car insurance
Renault has had a sea change in its image recently with some new existing designs that are at the forefront of modern automotive design. They have made great steps forward in build quality. The problem for the French manufacturer is that for some people their car designs are too avant garde. Insurance levels on the Renault again vary widely from entry level models that are cheap and affordable to their hot hatch models which attract insurance groups similar to more prestigious marques. The Models and options though are wide and extensive so if you appreciate the design of the cars there will be a vehicle to suite your needs within the range.

Renault Clio - Car insurance group 3 to Car insurance group 20
Renault's small car offers a superb range that runs from a affordable urban runabout with cheap insurance and running costs to the Renault sport with supercar performance and an insurance group to match. It is now looking slightly dated and under equipped compared to its rivals. Safety levels on a small car are good with the Renault scoring 4 stars on the NCAP safety tests. This is reflected in insurance levels throughout the range. Residuals are as expected for a mass market car but overall it is a fine small car priced well in the market place.
Renault Megane - Car insurance group 3 to Car insurance group 17
The Megane has become the main model in the Renault range and is by far its biggest seller. It comes in various guises from hatchback to sports saloon to tourer and there is even a cabriolet available in the range. This is reflected in the spread of insurance groups that the Megane covers so it is essential that you know the full details of the car you either have or are going to purchase. The Megane has a look that people either love or hate but regardless of what your opinion on the styling is, it is a well build car with excellent load carrying capabilities and excellent safety features. The Megane scores 5 in the NCAP safety tests.
Renault Laguna - Car insurance group 8 to Car insurance group 14
The Laguna has been targeted at the company car buyer and the small family. It goes for comfort and safety rather than performance and handling. The diesel option on the car is probably the best choice especially if running costs are of most concern to you. Residuals are low but that is to be expected from a vehicle aimed at the company car market. Insurance levels reflect its position in the market. There are a good number of dealerships for parts and servicing and again this helps to keep the insurance at acceptable levels. However the Laguna lacks the sparkle that some of the competitors in the market sector have and as such will struggle in the sector.
