Accessibility & Motability

Usability for people with disability or their carers

Motability - Access

Getting in and out of the Renault Clio should be easy, thanks to front doors that swing out to a wide-angle of 69 degrees. That's much wider than the doors of most small cars; for example, the Ford Fiesta's doors open to 63 degrees and the Volkswagen Polo's to 65 degrees.

The Clio's door sills are quite low to the ground (384mm), so you won't need to lift your leg too high as you step inside.

Motability - Storage

Wheelchairs will need to be folded to fit in the Clio’s boot. Even with the rear seats folded down (they split and fold 60/40 on all models), there's not quite enough space for a fully assembled wheelchair to fit. Also, hauling a chair in and out will mean lifting it up high, because the Clio's boot sill is 770mm from the ground – considerably higher than those of most rivals. 

There's also a drop of 245mm from the sill to the boot floor. Again, that's well above average for this type of car and can make lifting heavy items in and out of the back quite strenuous.
