Who are Renault?
With a history that goes right back to 1898, Renault is one of France’s venerable car manufacturers. Fast-forward to today and it’s one of the biggest automotive companies around, as well as being hot property in the world of motorsport.
The brand has a huge list of hits to its name, including the Espace, the Megane, and the Scenic, but it’s the Clio that people really hold a torch for.
Distinctive good looks – together with low running costs and affordable insurance – made the Clio an instant hit on its launch in 1990. Since then, it’s consistently been one of Europe’s bestselling cars. Certainly, judging by the number of enquiries we get, it’s easily one of the Top 10 cars in the UK.
The Clio is a little car, so the 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.

Can I cut the cost of my Renault Clio insurance?
Want 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.
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 – after all, the less you drive, the lower your chances of an accident (and the better it is for the environment!).
