Renault cars for young drivers

Orange Renault

They strive to break convention to create innovatively designed and engineered cars that evoke emotion, but are practical and affordable too – and we happen think it’s something they do pretty well!


Best known for...

Renault’s strapline is “Passion for life” – and this vibrancy really comes across in the design and personality of their cars. Models like the Laguna and Megane divided opinion with their angular, unusual design – but both turned out to be successful. Renault continue to be innovative and adventurous in their design – more recently, they’ve really broken the mould recently with the outlandish Renault Twizy – a tiny, two seater electric vehicle – where the doors are optional on some models!

When it comes to the supermini market – Renault certainly seem to have it nailed, with the Clio! Now in its 4th generation, it’s still just as much of a hit as it was when it was launched in the early 90’s. This is probably because they’ve stayed true to the winning formula – smart, fun, nippy and affordable – while re-inventing to move with the time with sharp new styling and cutting edge features.

Frequently asked questions

What is a guarantor?arrow
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?arrow
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
How does the insurance work?arrow
We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)
What happens after the first year?arrow
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
How long until I get my new car?arrow
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
