The real advantage in automotive competition is where buyer has more options to find more new vehicles with significant development. No automakers want to make their products as the worst and therefore, they will work harder to present a good quality vehicle with low development cost to make it affordable. Renault for example, has their way to do. They will share much features with Nissan X-Trail SUV which is not a big shock. It is because they did had shared project for the Renault Kadjar and Nissan Qashqai by sharing Tue mechanical parts. They only repeat this action for the new 2018 Renault Koleos.
