    Probably not worth the trouble to Renault to make a RHD version for Australia.
    However, if Renault eventually make a version for India we might have a chance of seeing some here.

    Yet another ugly can't make up its mind what sort of car it is.
    A sports coup or 4wd.
    I know they are popular but I still don't like them.

    It's no Scenic..... That's for sure. I'm wondering whether the Scenic is the last real Renault apart from the RS series.

    Have you driven any of the current series Meganes? There's nothing wrong with them or the Clios. Proper Renaults too. Scenics have been outgamed by Kias and Hyundia's. Renault aren't going to bring anything to Australia that isn't going to sell. When they contemplate the fact that BMW are having a massive clearance sale on their similar looking to the Arkana X4, X5, and X6, they might realise that ugliness and impracticality may not, after all, cut it in Australia. The end result might be if the Arkana is made in LHD it could just get here for a tryout. It's built on an existing platform so there won't be any surprises!
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............

    I know the current Meganes are good, but for practicability, the Scenic (also a Megane) is hard to beat. The rear seats come right out, for just one example, and you get a van with great carrying capacity. It's also so easy to get in and out of. Nonetheless it is short with a good turning circle. Faboulous visibility. And it goes on. The Kia/Hyundai stuff is probably just fine and no doubt cheaper, hence Koleos…. But they don't have the design flair. I agree re the "won't sell enough of them to bring them in" argument but lament it.
