RENAULT CLIO Car Review
One of the most distinctive super-mini's on the road
Brits have had a soft spot for the Renault Clio for the last 20 years, but the current model is the best by a distance.
In recent years the Renault Clio lost its ways a bit, becoming too bulky but the chic and sporty new design has given this firm favourite backs its Va,Va, Voom, as Thierry Henry would say.
The Renault Clio is now one of the most distinctive super-mini’s on the road and is competitive in every way in a class full of top models like the Fiesta and Polo.
It’s the same story on the inside where the Renault Clio has upped its game with a refreshingly clean and uncomplicated interior. The quality of materials have made a leap forward to make them on par with the best in the class.
And you get one of the best super-mini interiors for leg and headroom for front and back seat passengers, plus a useful sized boot that makes it one of the most practical small cars on the road.
The Renault Clio have always been good driving cars and the latest is easy to drive if you are only interested in getting from A to B, but has a touch of entertainment for buyers who enjoy getting behind the wheel. You get the choice of a cracking little 0.9 litre three cylinder petrol- around 60 mpg - a 1.2 litre version which does 50 mpg, but my choice would be the 1.5 litre diesel that takes fuel economy to over 70 mpg.
* Cool looking super-mini * Good to drive/ excellent economy * Nice cabin and surprisingly roomy *
