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...

renault sport is something different than the everyday renault. i mean as a division, they have their own "toys". everything that came out of their hands was extraordinary and dominated the competition....the theory of EDC (commercial renault name) is an improvment of the manual shift. it's not the old days crap-ass auto. remember when BMW introduced SMG. shifting times way beyond any human's capacity. DSG, PDK?? it's the same....so yes EDC is better than manual. especially if it's build for performance...check the nissan gt-r, the veyron, and other extreme performance DRIVER vehicles. read more, know more, ask stupid questions hopefully never.

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. :(

Dont mind about the first two but not being able to buy a sport tuned 200hp supermini car with shifts is a failure.

From a business standpoint, having 4 doors is the best seller even here in Canada for a hatchback. 5 doors sell the most. Cause of the obvious practicality, but i prefer the look of a 3 door hatchback. However this is just my subjective opinion and has no bearing on the car. Great car.
