Renault Clio

Even though it's one of the biggest carmakers in the world, Renault has struggled to find consistent sales success in the Australian market, and the Renault Clio is a good example.

The light front-wheel drive Clio Formula Edition hatch starts at $13,300, while variants such as the Clio Intens are $24,310.

The Clio is offered locally with a 900cc three-cylinder turbo engine, a 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine and, in the performance-oriented RS200, a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The RS200 can be had in four different chassis tunes, as well.

This vehicle is also known as Renault Lutecia (Japan).

Renault Clio Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Renault Clio here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What is the durability and re-sale value of a used car?

    In terms of life expectancy and durability I would expect both to be about the same, but I would expect the Polo to have slightly better resale value than the Clio. Both are good cars, but I would choose the Renault because of its longer warranty.

  • Renault Clio 2016: Dealership can't fix my car

    Renault has a clear responsibility to fix the problem, and has been trying to fix it, but so far hasn’t been able to. Request a meeting with your dealer’s service manager and go through the history of the problem and have them tell you what they will do to fix it. It’s sounds like they need the assistance of a technical expert from Renault head office. You need to get an agreement that the problem will be fixed, or Renault will come to the party with a satisfactory settlement. You could also go to the ACCC, or the state consumer department for assistance and advice.

  • Which hatchback should I buy?

    The best times to buy are usually the end of the financial year, or at model run-out times, that's when the specials are on. The CVT and dual-clutch autos are both still unknowns in terms of long-term reliability, but either should be ok over the five years you plan to keep the car. Any of the cars you list, and the list is a long one, would be ok. It really comes down to what you like.

Renault Clio Interior

The Renault Clio has an interior that's suitably quirky. As these images show, its large dashboard is punctuated by a 'floating' centre stack that not omly houses its touchscreen multimedia system, air vents and climate controls, but is surrounded is gloss-black trim. Leather can be hand, of course, but it's not the best.
