GENEVA PREVIEW: Renault to unveil three-seat city car concept

By just-auto.com editorial team | 15 February 2005

Renault will displaya three-seat city car concept - code named Z17 - at next month's Geneva show.

"The diminutive upper-range urban vehicle places the accent on genuine motoring pleasure in a compact package. Z17 is a vehicle designed for city life. It has been shown that cars carry only 1.4 people on average, but two seat interiors are perceived as a constraint," Renault said in a statement.

"Z17 is therefore a genuine three-seater complete with a boot located behind the driver's seat, all built into a compact architecture," said Patrick Le Quément, the car maker's head of design.
