Renault Captur: Nobody who knows about cars will buy this

"waah!" at least you HAVE an option for a tight, efficient diesel motor.

If I want an underpowered yet utilitarian city/econo car, I am lucky to find something that queefs out any useful torque at all (HP numbers be damned) and still barely see 35 real world MPG unless I spend 2X on some hybrid heavy battery backup system.

Even our version of the Smart got no oil-burner and barely gives 40mpg.

So at least you guys get decent gas mileage with your gutlessness.

(hell, we never got the Fiat 500 with the Twin Air in California either :( )
