Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Renault really has this safety thing sorted - it scores a top five-stars in the Euro NCAP crash test and features all the safety equipment you could need. A high level of security measures are also featured.

That curious rear end provides a boot with plenty of space and easy access. MPV-like dimensions mean that space is in abundance within the cabin. There are loads of little cubby holes to lose, sorry store, all kinds of trinkets, from under-seat boxes to a coin tray hidden behind the dash "wood" veneer.
