Which used Renault Clio hatchback should I buy?

In April 2001, a revised Clio was introduced, and this is the best version to buy. It has a range of more modern engines, including our favourite, the 1.2 16v. This has a delightfully perky nature that makes the best of the chassis without overtaxing it.

At the same time, the dCi diesels appeared for the first time, and they are markedly better than the unrefined 1.9-litre units they replaced.
