  1. Am I the only one who looks more like a new Renault Clio as a R5? A R5 was a very minimal, very small fashion.
    The thing on the graphics looks huge. And Renault likes to be a bit more concrete slowly.

    Cool would be to see at the microcar market finally serious competition to the Fiat 500e. By whom, if not renault?

  2. Also the new edition of the Fiat 500 and Mini are grown towards the original version. From the lines is already a R5. Had himself such a part.
