Some people will struggle to find a comfortable driving position because the steering wheel doesn’t adjust for reach and the seat controls aren’t overly accurate. The top of the dashboard reflects in the windscreen on sunny days, too, and rear vision is awful. At least most of the controls are easy to use – only the small and fiddly stereo buttons let the side down.
Renault Wind space & practicality
The Wind’s headline feature is a folding hard-top that swivels back through 180 degrees in just 12 seconds to leave the cabin open to the elements without stealing any space from the large, well-shaped boot. There’s enough room for a couple of six-footers in the cabin and, although you don’t get any rear seats, there is a handy shelf.
Renault Wind equipment
Entry-level Dynamique models come with a part-electric roof (you have to lock it into place manually), electric windows, alloy wheels, cruise control, and air-conditioning. An MP3-player socket is useful, but there is nowhere to put your music device. Upgrading to GT Line trim brings climate control, automatic headlights and wipers, an alarm and Bluetooth.
