I got this as my first car it is indeed only a 1.2 unfortunatly but puttin aside lack of speed and power. I personally think its a good looking car and with a nice pair of alloys on it perfects it even more. Having only recently passed my driving test I was looking for a car which wud be low on insurance and this is perfect for the job. renault clios are proving to be popular based upon the good looks and smooth drive. The car handles well on the road and is comfortable for long journeys and has extra such as cd player. my car is in metalic silver which polishes up nicely. The car is very quite when driving which is nice. The car is also very economical on journeys. the boot space is good i personally go mountain biking so the ability to get my bike in the back with ease is helpful.
After a long time of saving to buy a new car I couldnt decide which car to choose. But as soon as I test drove a new Renault clio I knew it was for me a nice smooth drive and most importantly it's got power steering. As little as £6000 which should of been £7495 even better. Ladies this is your part wear a push up bra a low cut top this works a treat and dont forget to mention about the flirting and fluttering eyelashes. I also recommend that you go at the end of the month as each sales rep need to work towards there target. Also a rainy day is good as most people dont want to be going outside on court yards looking at cars and getting soaking wet. Do always stick to your budget.
The Clio 1.2 Grande became part of our family back in September 2001, with the launch of the new X registration. Mum needed a new car seen as I had all but commandeered her old one (Nissan Micra see op). The car was delivered on September 1st and for the first time we had purchased a brand new car. Appearance – The main reason we decided to buy the car in the first place was it’s cutesy image, it has always looked like a bit of a girls car to me but as it was being bought for a girl that seemed fairly appropriate. What more can I say four wheels 2 door, Titanium Metallic Silver. Equipment – For the second to bottom in the Clio range it come surprisingly well equipped. It has Electric front windows and door mirrors. 6 speaker stereo system, which I think is made by long time car stereo stalwart Blankplunt (sorry spelling). It also comes with 2 front air bags, remote central locking and a nifty system which at the time I had only seen on Mercedes. This system means locks the doors once the vehicle gets above a certain speed, and then they can only be opened from the inside, an excellent safety feature on a base model. Performance – considering the engine is on the low side of 1.2, only 1149cc, it is surprisingly nippy around town and can easily handle long journeys on the motorway. Is driven correctly the car can return excellent, frugal fuel consumption figures, around 40 mpg on a long run. Other - Parking is a cinch with power steering as standard and good all round visibility. One thing I feel I must mention is the innovative Renault trademark 3-point centre rear seat belt. Again it is little touches like this that make difference between a Clio and a Fiesta for example. Depreciation is another plus point on this cute little car, the resale value are still high very high despite the recent launch of the much more masculine facelift model. One of the only donwsides i can suggest is th
e dealer network. The nearest one to me is Renault Leicester and they have been average but have by no means bent over backwards to be helpful. They wouldn't let us have a test drive becuase they didn't need to to sell them and if we didn't buy one because we wanted to drive it another punter would jump at the chance. Reliability - in the 6000 miles covered in the car we have not had a single problem, so i can't really say anything else in this section All in all an excellent buy, only one blip in the 15 months ownership came recently when some thug thought it would be funny to drag a key down the length of the car. Still that is hardly the cars fault now is it.
