    Yeah EVO rate them very highly. Renault can certainly make a hot hatch!

    Only the Frenchies are crazy enough to stick a V6 in a hatchback and then shove it in the middle.

    They certainly are different.

    Is access to the engine bay difficult?

    And I'm guessing trunks (?) space isn't going to be huge.

    In any case, enjoy.

    Hmm, I just noticed- there are no air intakes below the side rear windows, below the B pillar. Is this an earlier model?

    Nope, the V6 was a very limited edition.

    This looks like either a 182 Cup, or possibly the Trophy. Either way a magical handling hatch.

    This is a 182 with both cup packs. It has the cup suspension set up, but then has all the toys a 182 cup doesn't have. Such as leather, xenons, climate control, cruise control...

    In terms of power to weight ratio a Peugeot 206 RC (MY 2004) comes close with 177 hp and a curb weight of 1.059 kg. There are not may affordable and (somewhat) practical cars which reach those figures.

    I also like the Clio Sport phase III with 197 hp engine, but combined to your model it is almost a heavy weight, with kurb weight of 1.240 kg.

    Ah, my mistake, I thought it was a V6.

    Still a nice hot hatch though.

    Nice. Low weight and moderate power, just what you want from a hot hatch
