What alternatives should I consider to a used Renault Clio hatchback?
The Ford Fiesta that came out in 2009 is a whole lot more entertaining to drive than the Clio and just as comfortable on the motorway, but its interior doesn’t feel quite as nicely designed. It’s worth a look if it’s within your budget.
The Volkswagen Polo has always been a popular small car thanks to its high-quality interior, efficient engines and grown-up feel. However, it’s more expenisve to buy than the Clio, so you’ll have to spend more to get an equivalent example.
