A cracker!!!!

Bought the Stepway in April 2016, no regrets. Renault main dealer for the area.

Comfy seats, I have a 74 yrs body with arthritis here and there.

I live in France, just north of La Rochelle. Car was broken into at Sete, Sud de France, 8 hrs in the seat on the return (plus meal/coffee breaks).

An ideal test for comfort.

Performance, well the Péages in France are limited to 130 km/h, no problem keeping up with traffic. I use the 'cruise control', so the car does the work.

Performance from the Tce 90 is good, wind it up a bit and it goes. Told my nephew it went well, took him for a quick spin.

Pulled away, into 2nd and floored it, he said, "XXXXX XXXX! I did not expect that, still pushing me back in the seat as you changed into 3rd"! (He owns an Escort)

Have taken it to 150km/h, more to go as well. Use ECO in town.

Handling, well it rolls a bit if pushed (hard), but it has soft springing so to be expected.

Economy, about 6 Litres/100 kms, average on screen.

Rough French country roads, not a problem. Goes up banks easily to pass tractors!
The stop/start can be switched OFF, but the traction control is fixed (do not like it, I like to drive the car).

I drive it without shoes, more control and have removed the foot rest for the left foot, (silly idea).

All in all, a good car.
