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: 1.5 dCi 90

This diesel option emits as little as 82g/km of CO2 (although in most editions, it’s 85g/km) and it’s also the most economical of the motors in real-world use. By small diesel standards this is a particularly strong engine, with enough low-down torque to cope comfortably with the Clio’s weight, and very little clatter or vibration.
