It features a square bodystyle unlike the car that came out in the later of '1980s

and that is the only 4 door sedan of 3-box, 6-light with an independent trunk in the lineup of Renault .

The TURBO is equiped with many body styling parts in comparison with a standard type

The turbochange is definitely Renault style, when the engine exceeds 3000rpm , the force presses you against the sheet ,

that is feature of the turboengine.

The going straight stability is good on wheel basis 2600mm , the sense of security increases indeed to a high speed .

However , the steering picks up a track under the bad road condition .

You can't handling well in your one hand .

@

In the handling you must grapple with the constant strong torque steering as often seen in the high powerd FF .

(This is improved a little form 1990)

If you have the strength to press down the power , its under steering is included to a light group .

Although the rolling is held down to a minimum with a hard setting suspention ,

its front is sometimes hard to manage when full power is applied at tight corner .

that was great imprubed of its truction .
