Ever since Renault announced the launch of a hatchback at the upcoming Auto Expo 2012 imagination among motoring journos has been running riot.  Some have claimed that the new car is the Clio and others that it is the Sandero (which shares a platform with the Logan).  It has now emerged that in all likelihood the car will share platforms with the Nissan Micra but will have a different skin to differentiate it from its twin.  Even this is firmly in the realm of speculation and it will be a while before any clarity regarding the hatchback will emerge.  But the V platform (Micra) news seems most credible and probable because that will help both Renault and Nissan keep the prices of their respective cars in the category where customers will find it easier to buy them.
