    changes are welcome at any point of time but still Renault not getting anywhere with Ergonomics the Touch screen info/Navigation seems to low Driving personnel certainly cannot operate it while driving and it is quite dangerous when focus shifts on Info it needs to corrected above the dash and angling towards Driving seat, and absent of steering mounted Audio controls,Hope Engineers take a note of this and rectify and make safe cars/Suv’s.
