French Cutie Flirts With The Mechanics — Acceleration: Okay for this class. Braking: Although French not really sensitive. Handling: Be aware of understeering! Build Quality: Materials quality is fine, but bad clearances. "Health": You get to know your mechanic crew better from 70.000 km on. And you make them rich. Appearance: Exterior styling rather "cute", interior with some smart ideas and good ergonomy. CoO: Fuel consumption is to high, but oil is no problem. Fun Factor: There are worse 75 bhp compact cars.

Pros: Cup holders for the rear seats, big enough for wheatbeer glasses

Cons: Seems to attract accidents...

Clio 1.2 — not a bad car pretty nippy and flys round corners, good starter car but you will get bored fast, my model didnt have power steering which let it down a lot but all round it was a decent car. very cheap to run.

Pros: nippy and corners well

Cons: interior ugly slow on motorways and plastic!

Boooooo! — Its only 1.6 and its too slow for me when I have also got Vauxhall Vectra 2.5 V6 SRi. Renault breaks down alot, French people should been banned from making cars. Its ugly car. Handle crap always flick out on the rear like the rear wheel drive when its front wheel drive!!!!

Pros: Nonne

Cons: Everything

Suprisingly Fun, However There's A Lot Better. — The best thing about it is the suprising performance out of the 1.4 litre engine. The breaking and handling however is shocking. Reasonably comfortable but you feel like a bit of a boon while driving it!

Pros: Power and reliablity.

Cons: Girly, stopping and corners.

Cute Little Car :) — PERFORMANCE: Acceleration is pretty good, and for a car with only 59 HP, it hits 120 km/h before you know it. Brakes are working quite well too. Handling: Pretty good, thanks to the newly installed coil-over suspension, which has lowered the car by 70 mm (TÜV approved = legal to lower more than 40 mm). BUILD Q: Pretty good, except there's a bit too much plastic. APPEARANCE: The only thing I like about the exterior is the rear-lights. Interior is way too boring. CoO: Cheap insurance, cheap to fill it up with gas, generally a cheap car to have. FF: It's pretty fun to drive if you can get over the somewhat slow acceleration ;)

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fuel economy ~ 15-17 km/l

Cons: Only 59 HP..
