Re: Which models should Renault retain?

Oh, I totally agree that the cars of today are far larger and heavier than in the past but that doesn't have anything to do with the improvements of the engines themselves. They are far superior to older engines in every way.

Anyway, most manufacturers have woken up to the idea of reducing weight - 9 years ago, Jaguar were already making the XJ of Aluminium and its body weighed less than that of a Mini! However, their new engines are so much better than the old engines, that the economy has improved, even on their heavier, steel-bodied cars.
