Giulietta Cloverleaf vs Megane RenaultSport
Can France and Italy offer credible alternatives to German hot hatchery? There’s only one way to find out...

But the Alfa is special. It is truly beautiful and those looks will endure for far longer than the RenaultSport's unsubtle and aggressive bodge-up. It's not perfect, even by Italian standards, and the age-old question mark hangs over the interior packaging and general quality, but as an overall product, albeit one far removed from the hermetic perfection of Wolfsburg, it is very good. And above all that - or in spite of it - the Cloverleaf is lovely, an adjective that seldom gets applied to hatchbacks. I wouldn't buy one and I wouldn't recommend one to a friend, but I hope to see lots out there, in 8C red, being flicked into ‘D'.
