Which used Renault Clio hatchback should I buy?
At launch the Renault Clio line-up was divided into Expression, Expression+, Dynamique MediaNav and Dynamique S MediaNav. You’ll need at least Expression+ trim to get air-conditioning and alloy wheels, while upgrading to Dynamique MediaNav replaced the standard radio system with a touchscreen. This includes a TomTom-based satellite navigation system and tracking of the car’s long-term fuel economy.
Top-spec Dynamique S Clios also have parking sensors and climate control, but look a little expensive on the used market. A GT-Line trim with stiffer suspension joined the range in 2013, while two years later the same aesthetic upgrades were offered on Dynamique models without the firmer suspension. Clio Renault Sports, meanwhile, have much tougher looks, a paddle-shift gearbox as standard and an interior complete with sports seats and plenty of RS badging.
As of 2015 the Expression+ trim was replaced with a Play model featuring a similar level of equipment.
