Well if anyone's interested in truth, rather than utterly ludicrous performance claims, I have owned both a Clio 172 and a ZS180. Both are very similar in performance figures, and both are cracking driver's cars. The wider flexibility of the V6 does make a difference in the real world terms; in the Clio nothing much happens until about 4500 RPM, and then it's WAHEY and off you go, great fun, but the lack of low-down torque can be frustrating at times.
The ZS is a raw, old school car; basic inside, but very supportive seats. It is however very communicative; you know exactly what's going on, no traction control to nanny you round the corners. This car will shame many a far more expensive machine, and you can buy them for peanuts now.
And one thing they are never is boring. The rasp of the V6 as the inlet paths open at 3k is wonderful, and the revs rocketing round to the redline is addictive. For a V6, it is surprisingly revvable.
Handling and braking are the best I have ever experienced in a FWD car, and frankly is better than most RWD cars out there.
Buy one, and enjoy annoying German car drivers.
