Looks like a cross between a corsa and Leon fr?!?

5 doors and apparently 1.6t.

If it goes like stink and turns out to be a class leader, people won't really mind the looks. If it ends up being luke warm rather than hot, I don't think it'll carry the same level of cache as its predecessor did.

Looks OK, still believe it needs to be or at least have the option of being a 3 door.

I would not buy one for the sole reason of having 5 doors. Guess Renault believe they can sell more in 5 door format than in 3. They have killed the whole concept of the hot hatch IMO.

From the rear picture you would struggle to tell it is a five door.

Bit of an ugly front end, but I'm sure it will grow on me.

Overall it looks good!

Needs a bigger badge on the front, nobody would ever guess that's a Renault!

Rear looks good, but the badge at the front is too big

It'll probably end up being something you can customize. Either body coloured or the choice of different shades of grey.

Well it looks like it's not there in the rear shot of the car. I'm sure it's just a sticker or something equally pointless.

  • Front - bad. The size of the Renault badge is just utterly ludicrous.
  • Back - good.
I really hope it lives up to the 200, but I'm not feeling that confident about it.

For me it is the opposite, looks better than long snout 200, but one can hardly hope it will drive as good. But I have seen video of it on Nurburgring and seems to drive well, certainly better than Golf VII Gti (with diff)that is being prepared.

I'm sure it'll be great to drive but the styling looks like a mash up of other cars
