Our recommendations

Which used Renault Clio hatchback should I buy?

We wouldn’t bother with diesel versions of the Renault Clio unless you’re planning to do lots of motorway miles, and even then we’d probably think twice. Petrol models are mechanically simpler and less likely to incur big repair bills, which could wipe out any savings you’ll make on the fuel economy of a diesel.

Our favourite engine is the 1.2-litre TCe turbocharged petrol, though even the basic naturally aspirated 1.2-litre engine is sweet and powerful enough for most drivers.
