Renault Clio Overview

The current model offers engines ranging from a 0.9-litre petrol engine to a 1.5-litre diesel.

This is a highly competitive segment, but the Renault Clio has kept the traits that make it so popular, and enhanced certain areas to make the car more modern and to keep it competitive. A wide range of trim and engine options provide a variety of cars designed to suit a variety of budgets. The amount of space being offered is quite impressive.

Background

The Clio was first put into production in 1990 yet was not put on sale in the UK until 1991. Soon after the Clio's trim was updated before the second phase model was launched in 1994. The phase 2 model was made to more modern and received another update in 1996 before the second generation model arrived in 1998.

The second generation model arrived in 1998 with a much more bulbous look with the engine range remaining largely the same. The second generation Clio received a facelift in 2001 which saw the Clio restyled (angled headlights) and its interior improved, another Diesel option was also added.

The third generation Clio arrived in 2005 and was first produced in 2006. The third generation Clio used the Nissan B platform and is larger than the second generation model. The third generation was voted the European Car of the Year in 2006, continuing the Clio’s already strong reputation.

The current fourth-generation Clio was revealed at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and went into production in 2013.

Summary

Renault’s Clio offers a wide range of diversity making it appealing to a wide range of buyers. It has a superb reputation and has continued to excel since it was first produced in 1990. It is one of Renaults most successful cars for a reason, and is definitely worth a look.
