It is strangely cool. Not bad to drive despite being essentially a Twingo cabrio. Although the Twingo aint bad actually. The 1.2 turbo is quite pokey

However, it boils down to the fact that city car cabrios are not really cool at all. Good car, but uncool

Saw one of these the other day and the front doesn't look too bad, but I nearly vomited when I saw the back. Kind of looks like a clio and a ford Ka have mated...

I HATE the way modern cars just meld the bonnet into the windscreen! This is just accentuated on modern tintop convertibles as the make the windscreen as long as possible to make the roof as little as possible.

I know they do it for pedestrian safety scores, but honestly, **** the pedestrians if this is the result!

Horrible.

I HATE ALL CARS THAT LOOK LIKE A STAFFORDSHIRE BULLDOG chewing a wasp!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The roof geometry is dictated by the panel which flips round as shown here Renault Wind: Roof - Vidéo Dailymotion
If the screen was more upright the roof would be longer ....

If the screen was more upright, the guy in the third image would be able to see where he was going.

Why wind? Why not the fart, or the parp, or the rifter, or the belch, or the air biscuit, or the flabby wuff-wuff, or the flatulator.....

Stupid name, uncool.

Well, to be fair, you can't "ride like the bottom burp" although some say Happy has been seen riding on his.

There could be quite an intriguing new naming convention if they took you up on this idea.

Ladies and gentlemen, we proudly present the new Peugeot Piff.....(and so on)

Well the Wind has passed away ,having been discontinued from the uk market due to lack of support .
Just to contrived to incorporate that roof ? Renault has been down to 4 models here and it's concentrating on being the electric etc partner of Nissan . There are still some some per reg Winds in stock next to the twizzys .

And now it becomes cool. A limited supply quirky city car. It's now in the same bracket as a Nissan Figaro or Smart Roadster.
My wife wants a Wind or a Figaro in pink
