What? Typically pretty french styling combined with old school Renault character. 3 door variant less sensible but marginally better looking than the 5 door. The base 1.2 is economical with 45mpg easily achieved, and 0-100kph takes about 14.5 seconds if need be. Some dodgy colours were popular when it went on sale initially, guys best sticking to black or silver.
+ Very cheap car to repair with parts easily found, nippier than competitors, great looks.
- Reliability could be better, cabin loud at motorway speeds.
