It might not be the most fun or comfortable small car, but the Clio is reasonably comfortable and handles tidily enough, especially with the 1.3-litre engine under the bonnet.

This is the Clio’s core petrol engine, a three-cylinder turbocharged motor producing 89bhp and emitting as few as 94g/km of CO2.
