It is not difficult to see why the Renault Clio is one of the best selling used cars in the UK. After all, it’s been around since 1990s, meaning there’s a vast number of examples on the used market from which to choose.
These are spread over four generations, but common to all are stylish design, low running costs and an enjoyably nippy driving experience that makes the Clio appeal to both new and experienced drivers alike. Technology tends to be advanced too, and the Clio has a good safety record. For example, the fourth-generation Clio that is the subject of this CarGurus Used Car Review can be found with an impressive built-in touchscreen to control satnav and entertainment functions, and scored a maximum five-star rating when crash tested by Euro NCAP in 2012.
The car in our video is in popular Dynamique S Nav specification and powered by Renault’s smooth 1.5-litre diesel engine. It was supplied by used car supermarket Fords of Winsford, which holds a vast and varied stock and frequently secures a top rating from CarGurus users.
In the video above we set out to explain how the Clio fares for practicality compared with its main rivals, as well as considering the various engine options available, from the entry level units right through to the powerful Renaultsport Clio 200. We look at how running costs can be affected according to the age of Clio you choose and the engine it is powered by, plus offer advice on common problems that might emerge with a used Clio.
