How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Thanks in part to the latest Renault Clio’s additional girth compared to its predecessor, front space is generous to say the least, with plenty of head and leg room for drivers well over six feet tall and little danger of clashing elbows with your passenger. Still, you’ll have no complaints in a Ford Fiesta, Peugeot 208 or VW Polo either.

Oddment storage has been increased significantly over the previous version, too, with a much bigger glovebox, decent door bins and a deep tray in front of the gearlever. Depending on trim level and options fitted, you can also have wireless phone-charging and more storage under the central armrest you get with plusher trims.

Seat folding and flexibility

Every Clio has 60/40 split folding rear seats, which is par for the course in the small car class. They allow you to carry one or two rear passengers at the same time as a long or bulky load – long pieces of luggage or flatpack furniture, for example. The seatbacks fold to create a flat floor, but the front passenger seat doesn’t fold far enough forward to make much of a difference with extra-long loads.
