RENAULT Clio review

NGC verdict 24.10.2012

One of those cars that's so good at everything you ask of it that you wonder why, unless you have a big family, you would need anything bigger or more expensive for every day motoring. Looks good too.

The cabin is a major step forward in quality and comfort; the computer tablet brings in-car connectivity with ease. Forthcoming ECO versions with different electronic settings for engine and so aerodynamic tweaks will drop CO2 emissions to the level of a hybrid which is a major achievement.
