    Tuga, the symbol is not an example of a stylish car and I´m not a renault fan, but as I told you drove one in Tunisia and just love it. Easy to drive, to park and the engine is quite smooth. Well, this was a 1,4 and therefore plenty of force.

    Well, it has to have something for it, otherwise it wouldn’t sell at all. And i’m sure it is a nice drive, after all, it’s a Clio II. A bigger, really really ugly Clio II.

    The Symbol must not be the nicest renault but sure is pleasent to drive. I rented one in Tunisia last summer and just love it. Easy and fun to drive! Well, was a 1.4l and has plenty of punch!

    The Symbol has got to be THE worst looking Renault of this century… I understand having to make a car to a ( low ) budget, but it actually makes me angry seeing it doing well. If people didn’t buy them, Renault would have to come up with something better.
