2008 renault symbol 2 at Renault brings Symbol to GCC

Renault launched the all new 2008 Symbol in the middle east market and GCC. Also known as Thalia, The car is primarily designed for Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, Turkey and the Maghreb countries. Technically it is based on the Clio II model and is a mid-range economy sedan and is terribly ugly! It actually reminds me of Dacia Logan! Symbol measures at 4.26 meters in length and 1.43 meters in height and is powered by a 1.4 16V petrol engine with four-speed automatic transmission. Renault didn’t mention its power figures in the press release so expect it to be awfully low!
