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. However, the Clio’s attractive high-quality interior is one of the most appealing in the class and it has a huge boot. All being well with pricing and equipment levels, it should be a serious contender.

Trim: Play

The mid-range model, although we’re yet to know equipment levels.

Engine: 0.9 TCE 90

This is the Clio’s core petrol engine, a three-cylinder turbocharged motor producing 89bhp and emitting as few as 94g/km of CO2. It’s not the quickest performer, offering solid rather than peppy pace, and under acceleration has quite a noticeable thrum. That said, it delivers decent real-world economy and is our pick of the Clio’s petrols.
