Why choose a Renault Clio?

Distinctive good looks, low running costs and affordable insurance are just some of the reasons why many people are drawn to the Clio.

The Clio has consistently been one of Europe’s bestselling cars. Judging by the number of enquiries we get, it may be among the top 20 favourite vehicles in the UK.

The Clio’s engine isn’t huge, but it’s certainly efficient. And on the newest models you’ll find features like hands-free parking, touchscreen multimedia, and a panoramic roof.


Frequently asked questions

How much fuel does the Renault Clio use?

Fuel consumption depends on a variety of factors, including engine type and driving efficiency, but the Renault Clio’s fuel economy ranges between 48 and 67 miles per gallon. A standard 1.2-litre petrol Clio, for example, can do about 50 miles to the gallon.

This is based on data compiled by the Vehicle Certification Agency. As the fuel consumption figures were obtained under specific test conditions, they may not always be achieved in real-world driving conditions.

Can I get an electric or hybrid Renault Clio?

Due for release this summer, 2020, the Renault Clio E-Tech is a hybrid version of the flagship supermini. Renault says it will enable 80% of urban driving to be done in full electric mode and consume up to 40% less fuel than a conventional petrol engine, when driving on the motorway or around town.

How safe is the Renault Clio?

The Clio has an excellent track record for safety. It was given the top five-star rating when it was independently assessed in 2019 Euro NCAP crash tests, scoring exceptionally well for both driver and passenger safety.

  • Adult occupant safety: 96%
  • Child occupant safety: 89%
  • Pedestrian safety: 72%
  • Safety assist: 75%

The newer Renault Clio models also have a range of driver-assist features that help you stay safer on the roads.

How much does a Renault Clio cost?

To buy new, a Renault Clio starts from £14,695 and rises to £17,995 for the top-spec RS Line.

Used models are available for a range of budgets. For example, you can buy a second-hand 2017 Dynamique for around £9,000 or a 2011 Expression for less than £2,000.

Can I cut the cost of my Renault Clio insurance?

To keep your insurance costs down there are a few things you can do that could help. 

One is to add a named driver. Potentially, you could lower your premium by adding a more experienced driver to the policy. But make sure you’re still the main driver, or you could be guilty of fronting. Fronting is against the law – it’s a form of vehicle insurance fraud.

Keep your Clio safe – ideally parked somewhere secure overnight. Invest in a good alarm and tracker device, and make sure your car isn’t vulnerable to thieves or vandals.  

Keep your mileage down – the less you drive, the lower your chances of an accident (and the better it is for the environment).

What our expert says...

“The Renault Clio is an eye-catching supermini, not only in terms of its stylish good looks, but because of its reasonable price tag and running costs. It’s an ideal car for a first-time driver, as most models belong to the lower-end insurance groups.”
