Renault Clio review - updated supermini still a fine choice - Renault Clio prices, specs and rivals

Chic Renault Clio has verve, but isn’t class-leader

Evo rating
Price
from £11,555
  • Pretty exterior, decent interior, cheap to run
  • Engines can be uninspiring, no three-door or estate versions

UK trim lines include Expression, Play, Dynamique Nav and Dynamique S Nav. It should be fairly obvious what the ‘Nav’ means in those latter specifications and so a Clio equipped with Renault's MediaNav mapping and a seven-inch touchscreen will cost at least £13,955.

You can get into a Clio from £11,555, with the Expression (1.2 16v only) fitted with LED daytime running lights, stability control, traction control, hill start assist, six airbags, cruise control and a speed limiter. There's also an R&GO app-based connectivity solution which works when the user's smartphone is plugged in, while electric front windows, electric and heated mirrors and keyless go are all standard.

Play is £1400 on top of this but does add more desirable kit, such as 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, and front fog lights. Dynamique Nav adds the aforementioned touchscreen with navigation functions, as well as Bluetooth, DAB radio and Siri compatibility. There's a better stereo too, as well as automatic lights and wipers and a leather steering wheel.

Dynamique S Nav (£15,755) takes things a step further: Kit includes Renault's new full-LED headlights and rear lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, climate control, folding mirrors, rear electric windows and rear parking sensors. On top of Dynamique Nav and S Nav models you can add a Renault Sport-inspired GT Line pack with different alloy wheels, redesigned front and rear bumpers and a smattering of Renault Sport badges. A Bose audio system is also now available.
