The Fluence is based on the Megane. I wonder if they could make a an S derivative! The RS Coupe is one of the best driving machines on the market. However it is a bit hard core for daily driving. Our potholes will hammer our spines

The interior features a central driving position with room for the passengers on either side.

The Kwid has an interesting companion... a matching drone that launches from the roof, & can scout traffic or dangerous obstacles ahead, & report back to the driver & / or even take selfies of the Kwid & its owner.

The Megan has the familiar 110 Bhp dci diesel engine with a dual clutch gearbox.
http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-review/...ane-15-dci-edc
which actually makes it the smallest successful diesel automatic on roads any where.
A thorough net search shows that the Hyundai Verna's 1.6 Lit diesel is the second smallest.

I think its just a prototype. It has no suspensions. Yes they did drive. But not sure, how much we can take away from that. Design point of view, yes it is awesome.

There are sources suggesting Terbo petrol engine with AT. Diesel AT is a new thing. If it is there then I think it will be extremly useful urban crossover.
