1997 Renault 19Review

My Very Own French Connection — i really like this car, but what i really could ask more of this car is that to me luxurious on the inside and a little bit more smooth when it comes to engine... For every thing else regarding this car, nothing could be mentioned and if you are really into hardcore performance, everybody should check for the Renault 19 F16 i.e.

Pros: Looks really good if always maintained

Cons: opposite to positives plus expensive spare parts

1997 Renault 19Review

Crazy!!! — This car is an unbelievable car. It is really cheap, old, ugly and has a 1.6 liter petrol engine which produces 90bhp. Why I call this car crazy? First, with its small amount of horsepower, it has a low weight, and with its help the car accelerates from zero to 60mph around 9 secs. It has a stop distance of 54 meters from 100km/h to 0. And it has NO HANDLİNG!! You enter a corner, release the gas, and rotate, but it keeps going forwards if you have a little speed. I love it because when you crash into the electric lights with 80km/h or hit the pavements sideways, nothing happens to the car except minor things like a broken headlight glass or a damaged rim. It is really, really solid. We crashed this car accidentally into a 2002 Mercedes-Benz S500L with a speed of 60km/h, andthe Mercedes was gone. Our rnault only needed a change of the bonnet, a new front bumper, a new ront gril and a couple of headlights and that was all. The damage of the Mercedes was unbelievable.

Pros: Extremely solid, cheap, incredible acceleration due to its horsepower.

Cons: Ugly, no brakes, no  handling, no airbags, no air condition, no ABS, no nothing.
