Default Renault Symbioz 2 Concept

https://www.ford.com.br/carros/new-fiesta-hatch/

Looks like Renault still thinks a Car/MPV crossover in the upper segment is seomthing someone wants, despite their experience with the Velsatis.

Anyway, I guess a lot of the design cues we see here will feature on some future models;





Technically, like basically every concept car nowadays (is at least claimed to be), electric, and capable of fully autonomous driving.

It achieves a level of hideous that the French are especially adept at reaching.

I think that now for several generations, Renault's varying design language always worked better on the smaller cars, and less with every size up (Laguna Coupe excluded). Whilst I can see the Cactus now that you mention it, My first thought was a slammed Espace...

Considering that it is considered an autonomous car, I thought the high tech 4 wheel steering system was pretty much useless but I guess it provides better evasive handling in self driving mode?

Utterly gorgeous, unabashedly French.


How I love French cars.

I guess tighter turning circle and less understeer in sharp corners (which could be the described evasive situation as well) are arguments to have a sophisticated suspension even in a self driving car.
