million cars sold till date. The Renault Clio has been in the top ten car
rankings of the UK.
Exterior Looks: The Renault Clio surely seems to have come a
long way. The car is best in class in terms of space. The front of the car is
adorned by the floodlights which stretch till the wings with an eye catchy logo
of the company at centre. The back end of the car has lights similar to that of
the Audi A3. The interiors of the car have also been completely revamped. The
dials are clear. The red backlights and climate control are well laid out. The
surround sound around the AC vents is an interesting development. The seats are
finished neatly for a costly appearance.

for tall drivers in the previous versions. This time around the Clio seems to
have sorted out the issue. The seats do make you slip out in tight corners due
to lack of side support. However there is enough room for all the passengers in
the car even in the three door variants. The car has a boot capacity of 288
litre making it on par with its competitors and with rear seats being foldable
the figures swells up to 1,028 litres.

been its good handling on the roads. The car has good feedback and is quite
responsive even at low revs which should be ideal for the busy city streets.
The suspension of the car is springy enough under low to moderate speed
conditions. The car does make you push a bit but donít get carried by emotions
knowing the limitations of a compact car.
Performance: The 1.2 turbo charged engine was a huge
surprise. The car clocks 0-62 mph in 11.1 seconds with a top speed of 112 mph.
The turbo charged engine offers a pulling power of 107lb/ft. The car peaks at a
torque of 3,000rpm and 4,250rpm for the 1.6 litre engine. The Clio is a small
car with a big heart and can be pulled hard at times and you will surely be
