My old Subaru Forester was a reliable car but the Clio made it easy to forget all about the old one. The Clio boasts amazing handling compared to my old Subaru Forester and actually quite literally any other vehicle I've ever drove.

Fuel efficiency isn't great, around 33mpg.

The Clio costs a reasonable amount in road tax but i cant totally blame Renault for that. The co2 emissions means the cost is much less than it is with similar models i've driven in the past. I'm unsure if I would recommend the Clio. It is alright but it's not the greatest car in the world. The Renault Clio is neither incredible nor terrible. It's fine and I've had no major concerns with it. My journeys are relatively minimal and I'm getting roughly 55 mpg on average. The Renault Clio doesn't feel any better or worse than my last SLK-Class. I've covered 20000 miles in 14 months.

The Renault Clio has ok handling based on its price. It's probably not the best car ever from Renault to be truthful but with that said it's better than other similar vehicles available. The 6000 miles Ive driven in the Clio have proven that theres nothing to dislike about it and nothing to particularly adore either. The Renault Clio doesnt seem any better or worse than my last Note. I'm driving to and from work every day so covering a fair amount of miles and I reckon I am getting pretty close to the 52.3 miles to the gallon mark which is about what I was expecting.

The Clio will do for me. It's probably not the best vehicle on the market and doesnt exactly give me any reason to recommend it to everyone I know but I have had enough nightmare cars before now to be grateful for the fact that the Clio doesnt have any major probs. Overall its fine.

I had a Modus for a few years and only got Clio because I fancied a bit of a change. In all honesty the Clio is not better but is no worse than the old one but its decent. I get around 55 mpg on average, so can't complain. It's probably not the best car ever from Renault to be honest but by the same token it's better performing than other similar vehicles on the market.

I am especially disappointed with the fuel efficiency of the Clio. I was told I should get roughly 52.3 miles to the gallon and I have never had that level of performance or even near. If you are after a car that handles even remotely well then don't look here. The Clio costs a fair amount in road tax but you cant totally blame Renault for that. The co2 emissions means the cost is less than it is with different models i've owned in the past. i have covered 19500 miles in this terrible car and that's 19500 too many. I want my old Fiat Bravo back. The door don't open properly and Renault's team is hard of hearing.

I wish I'd never even thought about buying the Renault Clio. It's caused me nothing issues. Urgh. Me and my Clio have now been unhappily married for 12 months and we've gone 11000 miles or so. Unfortunately it feels more like 12 years and every single day I despise it a little more. If you would like a car that handles brilliantly then try anything but this.

The only glitch I had was a slight one where boot wouldn't close properly but as soon as contacted Renault they sorted it immediately and were really polite about the whole thing. Id heard that the Clio handles amazingly but even with those expectations I was still very pleasantly surprised. The handling is awesome. Id without question recommend the Clio to anyone who asked. Road tax is approximately what i might expect from a car like this. I owned a 3 Series for years and really did adore it. But the Clio is way better. I truly wouldn't switch the Clio for another car. Awesome ride!.

Any issues I have come across have been very insignificant so nothing to really complain about. It handles alright and as expected for a vehicle of its price. The Clio will do for me. It's probably not the best car on the market and doesnt exactly give me any reason to cheer out loud but I've had enough nightmare cars in the past to appreciate the fact that the Clio doesn't have any recurring issues. Overall its alright. My journeys are relatively minimal and I'm getting about 55 mpg on average. I had a Ford Mondeo for a few years and only got Clio because I wanted a bit of a change. Truthfully the Clio is neither better nor worse than the old one but its decent. I am unsure if I would recommend the Clio. I reckon Renault has designed a standard model but there are undoubtedly better cars out there.

Handles like a sack of manure. I disliked my last A4 but I dislike the Clio even more. I've had nothing but faults since I acquired it and truthfully it seems like Renault couldn't care less. I wouldn't recommend the Clio even if Renault offered me millions.

I moved from a Chevrolet Cruze to the Renault Clio and it definitely feels like an amazing upgrade. I was told that the official mpg number for the Clio was 52.3 but I am sure that Im getting loads more from mine. I've done 14000 miles in this car and it keeps getting better and better. It was a bit of toss up for me between the Renault Clio and a Chevrolet Cruze. I know for sure I made a great decision in choosing the Clio.

The only people Id recommend the Clio to are those who I don't like. Why on Earth did I ever get rid of my Zafira for the Clio? What a bad decision that turned out to be. I have had this ongoing problem with the handbrake and despite a number of correspondence with Renault I still haven't had the issue repaired. It's a total nightmare. How does it handle? There is no swear word in the world that could ever describe how dismal the handling on the Clio is. This cars supposed to do 52.3 miles to the gallon? Is that some sort of laugh? we'll see the toothfairy coming to dinner before the Clio ever runs at that level. I wish I'd never even thought about buying the Renault Clio. It's caused me nothing issues. Urgh. The 17500 miles i have done in the past 8 months have been the most awful driving experiences of my life.

I've done 7500 miles in this car and it keeps getting better and better. Renault has blown everyone out of the water with the way this handles. The Clio handles like a dream. I moved from a Passat and haven't looked back. The Renault Clio is a fantastic car. If your looking to buy a brilliant value vehicle with reasonable road tax costs, I'd definitely recommend the Clio. I just found out that the official miles per gallon it should be doing is 52.3 which surprises me as Im absolutely getting more from mine. Road tax has always been a massive Government scam but It's not particularly costly with the Clio.

You get what you would expect in terms of handling with the Clio. The official mpg figure for my Clio is 52.3 and i am getting around that out of mine so no complaints. ive had no major issues in the 9 months since buying the Clio and ive done about 5000 miles in it. The Clio is is very similar to my old S60. The Clio is a decent car for the price it sells for. I shouldn't really moan about the road tax expense with the Clio. It could be worse.

I truly wouldn't swap the Clio for another car. Great ride!. I recommend the Clio so frequently that my family believes I'm on commission. I cant really moan about the road tax bill with the Clio. It could be worse. My last vehicle was a Porsche 911 and as much as I adored it, my new Clio is on a whole new level. There's no switching back. I commute five times a week in my Clio and it consistently performs at way more miles to the gallon than the apparent official mpg figure of 52.3.

It handles incredibly well and way better than I expected for what I paid of the car. I just looked up that the official miles to the gallon it is supposed to be running at is 52.3 which shocks me because I'm definitely getting a better performance than that from mine. I love this car. Ive recommended the Clio to anyone I meet. I want commission from Renault. I moved from a Mercedes-benz SLK-Class and haven't looked back.

Since buying the Clio I have covered about 9000 miles and totally love it. One of the many reasons I chose it was that the official stats said it would run at 52.3 which seemed pretty decent to me but I'm sure that I'm getting more than that. I talk about the Clio so often that my partner thinks I'm on commission.
