I saw the new clio the other day... and yeah, the design is cool, but it looks a bit too high, looks a bit like a small crossover... and is not the ride that's high, is the body that is a but too tall in my opinion

Utterly great car, if this was sold in Canada, ild definitely think of buying this as my next car. Even in winter, put some studded winter tires in front, and it would have no problem being a very fun daily commuter in snowfall days.

This is overall quite a nice looking car. What spoils it for me is that the front doors look tiny with the "hidden" rear doors. No one would design a 2-door (or Euro 3-door) only with the front doors that short. I know practicality may suffer somewhat but IMO it would look much better if the front doors were 3-4 inches longer...

They made three big changes. The good one is that it has rear doors. Bad one is that it doesn't have a high-revving naturally aspirated engine anymore. And worse than that, it is an automatic now. :(
