Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Renault claims the Wind offers the sportiest, lowest driving position in the full Renault range. Shame then that for our tastes we wished the driving seat could have been a little lower still. Other than that the Wind’s interior is impressive, especially since it is completely bespoke for the little Roadster. Apart from an absence of design flair and the use of some hard black plastics, quality levels are fine considering the asking pricing.

The Wind is no stripped-out trackday special and, despite its heritage, Renaultsport engineers haven’t been tempted to fit the Wind with springs fashioned from concrete. That’s why the Wind deals with big bumps well, although those who really enjoy a comfortable ride should probably go for the smaller 16-inch wheels. On the bigger 17-inch rims the ride can get very busy at slower speeds.
