Suspect it'll be designed like the Clio to hide the look of the rear doors!


Ah well, at least you can buy a small BMW with 3 doors.LOL LOL

Sorry, but the number of doors really doesn't matter to me when we're talking about a rear engined, rear wheel drive hatch.

When people start talking about preferring a front drive, front engined hatch because it has fewer doors, jeez...by comparison this new car will be a piece of exotica. Even the Clio V6 couldn't handle more than a single passenger, so if this packaging works...and I believe it will as it's got MB & Smart behind it too, it'll be pretty special.

Funnily enough, RenaultSport/Gordini could very well end up competing with AMG/Brabus.

Not sure if this is the new R5 - hope not as it doesn't look good enough. MINI and 500 look like the classics that they are reinterpreting - this doesn't work if it's supposed to be an R5

This is the latest pic of the Twingo III R.S.
They've stated that this III R.S. will be the benchmark in the sporty A-segment,
and this R.S. will be a reminder of the legendary Renault 5 Turbo.

That looks great, lets just hope it has a proper gearbox and we could be looking at the Clio 200's proper successor.

the smart for-two isn't known for it dynamic capabilities LOL

and as said the market isn't exactly over flowing with rear engine rear wheel drive small hatches...it needs 5drs as the
boot space wont be there - a poor design layout for a small compact city car - the original mini template is still the winner!

If that was out now looking like that it would be the only car that could drag me away from my 225. That looks mint, even has Porsche brakes Wink LOL Just needs a bit of a rear spoiler to finish the back end off.

Few things wrong with this image,

1) we've been told it'll be 5 door, this ain't!

2) we've been told it'll be rear engined, this clearly ain't! Unless its two seater?

3) its from Auto ExpressConfused auto journalism at its worstConfused

Does look nice thoughCool

I wonder if this image will be near something that will be Apline based?

Or might they bring back the R5 GT turbo?

The Twinrun is a bit of a waste if it doesn't hint at something like thatConfused
