This is the boot of the Renault Megane. A good match-up for the so-called "Bangle butt" from BMW but really much more striking. This design grew on me. I'd buy one with a 2.0 diesel if I lived in France. On my other blog I have a longer post about the Renault Scenic we drove for several days--great car (LINK).
A nice old Mini and a new Smart. Just goes to show that the Smart isn't really all that small. And the Mini can seat 5 versus the Smart's 2. Shows what a great design the Mini was, so many years ago.
