    Looking at it from the side makes me think a bit about the Opel Astra, with the edgy tail and head lights...
    It's going the wrong way with the Renault-design, IMO, but tastes can differ...

    I quite like it as a small cheap car, and if the RS version is as good as the last one it'll be very good indeed.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.

    which one dropped ?

    The V6 has externally the same basic dimesnsion and shape as the ordinary CLIO. The big side air pods are the obviosu bits

    Did you mean that ?

    Actually most of Renault cars are 'cliche' unibox as they often lead the design before it became 'cliched'

    If it was the Avantime you meant, yeah, a radical concept deliverd but ultimately killed by the masters
