Well interestingly I was out in the car today so I had a closer inspection of the latch handle in my Clio. It IS (to my surprise) ergonomically designed to be opened with two fingers, with the back of the hand positioned to the door. You just slide your hand forward and in.

I'll still continue to use what I never knew was called the Dutch Reach for the safety aspect and to stop the door blowing wide (and bending hinges/panel) in strong winds.
