Renault Clio Hatchback 0.9 TCe 90 Dynamique Media Nav 5dr Review

For This three-cylinder petrol engine picks up revs smarty and suffers from little mechanical vibration. Dynamique trim brings a touch-screen that improves functionality and perceived quality.

Against You’ll need to be smart with your downshifts to maintain progress when you encounter inclines. This isn’t a cheap Clio.

The Renault Clio isn’t far behind the class-leading superminis, and this is one of the best versions.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The 1.5-litre diesel engine is definitely worth a look because it’s strong and smooth. It's also pricey, but is worth the money if you can afford it. The 0.9-litre turbocharged petrol engine is another good choice, although it doesn't suit the car as well as the diesel.

Entry-level cars are reasonably well equipped, but you’ll need to trade up to Dynamique Media Nav trim to get the touch-screen infotainment pack. It’s worth paying the premium, though, because it’s an excellent system and gives the cabin a real lift. It’ll also add appeal, as well as value, when you come to sell the car on.

Beyond this, you can personalise your Clio to your heart’s content, thanks to no end of colour and trim combinations. A word of warning, though; don’t go too crazy with your colour options, because a whacky scheme can have a seriously detrimental effect on your car’s resale value.
