New Renault Clio Review
The Renault Clio proved so popular that Renault found it so hard to replace it, they didn't, or did they. You can still get your hands on a MK II Clio in the form of the Clio Campus, other models now come in the MK III format, how long Renault continue to do this will obviously depend on sales.
The MK III Clio is definitely a case of evolution rather than revolution, as with all of us, as time passes, we gain a little weight and take up a little more space, exactly the same for the new generation Clio, a little longer, a little wider and carrying a little more weight, the Clio seems to have matured and with its maturity, its also got a little safer and now scores a maximum five stars in its Euro NCAP adult passenger occupation tests.
For those who have owned previous generation Clio's, it will be nice to find that the MK III offers more room all round, just under seven inches have been added to the overall length, and the height has also been boosted by nearly two inches, this combination gives more room and a feeling of spaciousness that was lacking in the previous model, the only downside being that with this extra size and weight, the MK III can seem a little sluggish when compared to earlier models.
Renault has made the Clio seem bigger, by making it bigger and for those of us who have also expanded with age, this may come as a welcome surprise.
Like the looks of the Renault Clio, why not check out the Citroen C3, the Ford Fiesta, the VW Polo, the Vauxhall Corsa, the Honda Jazz, the Peugeot 207 or the Mazda 2.
