Azamara Cruise – unknown French Cars

A life-long follower of the French car maker Renault, even I was stumped by the models I encountered in Uruguay.

This ultra-compact 4-door was originally developed for the Indian market and found its way to South America, presumably for pricing reasons.

In fact, the bulk of vehicles we saw in Brazil and Uruguay so far were sub-compact Renault, Peugeot and Fist models not sold in Western Europe or the North American market.

Ever heard of a Renault Oroch? Unfortunate name aside, this was a brand new discovery for me and I learned that this is the Dacia Duster-based budget pickup trucklet for developing markets.

Want one of these “beauties” in your driveway? You’ll have to move to South America. Personally, I doubt either model is worth it though.
