Ten Second Review

Less is more is a phrase that applies very well to the latest Renault Clio, most specifically the models powered by the three-cylinder 899cc TCe petrol unit. While this might sound like not enough engine, the 90hp powerplant is characterful and will make better financial sense than the diesels for many.

Background

In this country at least, we've almost become brainwashed into thinking that if we want to cut down on the costs of running a car, we need a diesel engine. You'll have seen the astronomical fuel consumption figures that seem to promise a whole week's driving before you need to fill the tank again, but as with many things that seem too good to be true, there are often holes in the story. And so it is with diesel engines, especially when they're fitted to small cars like the Renault Clio. The fact of the matter is that if you bought and ran a Clio for, say, three years, we'd be willing to wager that unless you covered huge mileages, you'd be far better off with an engine like the three-cylinder TCe 899cc unit that we're looking at here. The bonus? It makes the Clio even better fun to drive.

Driving Experience

Renault isn't alone in offering a downsized petrol engine. Many of its rivals are at it and you can get a sub-litre engine in the Peugeot 208 and the Ford Fiesta: very good they are too. Of the three though, it's hard to look past the Renault Clio Tce. For a start, it makes 90hp, which is way better than the base Peugeot 208 1.0's 68hp and also beats the base Ford Fiesta 1.0's 80hp power output. It's a fun engine to drive as well, due in no small part to the fact that it weighs so little. The front of the car is so eager to turn into a corner. You've just got to learn to trust the quick but slightly arcade game steering feel. The first three-cylinder powerplant ever produced by Renault, this turbocharged engine features an ultra low-inertia turbo that whistles into action from low engine speeds, developing 135Nm at just 2000rpm. In fact, fully 90 per cent of peak torque is available from 1,650rpm to 5,000rpm. It'll get to 62mph in just 12.2 seconds on the way to a top speed of 113mph but you'll need to work the gear stick to manage that.

Design and Build

Since there's still no three-door model, it's just as well that the five-door does a good impression of one, coupe-like styling emphasised by hidden rear door handles. Design-wise, this current version gets a smart nose, with an eye-catching full-LED lighting signature, including C-shaped daytime running lights in the case of certain versions. Inside, this Clio benefits from the use of finishing materials previously reserved for Renault's higher-end models. Out back, there's a decent sized 300-litre boot while at the wheel, we've yet another dash that's been sculpted in the shape of an aircraft wing on which is mounted an overtly confident chrome-surrounded instrument cluster dominated by the kind of digital speedo that not everyone will like. Equally eye-catching is the consumer electronic-fest that dominates the gloss black-trimmed centre console of all but base models in the form of a tablet-like display that is the 7-inch R-Link colour touchscreen.

Market and Model

The 0.9 TCe engine is offered with 'Play', 'Iconic' and 'GT Line' trim levels. Prices start at around £14,000, which undercuts several key rivals, despite the Clio being a larger car than many. As for equipment, virtually all models get alloy wheels, air conditioning and front foglights. And absolutely all of them get daytime running lights, cruise control with a speed limiter, a trip computer, a height-adjustable driver's seat, power front windows and mirrors, Bluetooth 'phone compatibility, a decent quality USB-compatible CD stereo with punchy Renault 'Bass Reflex' speakers and fingertip control, plus Hill Start Assist to stop you from drifting backwards on uphill junctions. To provide customers with a range of options, this Clio comes with three different connected multimedia systems, namely Media Nav Evolution, Renault R-Link Evolution and the new, smart R&GO system which is available on entry trim levels. This is also the first B-segment Renault to be available with a BOSE audio system. In addition to its reverse parking sensor, and depending on the version, this Clio offers a front parking sensor and a reverse parking camera. Available for higher-end versions, Handsfree Parking allows the driver to fully delegate the completion of parking manoeuvres. Four new body colours have been added and there's a more extensive personalisation programme.

Cost of Ownership

The TCe petrol engine makes some very interesting figures. This model will return 60.1mpg on the combined cycle and 105g/km of CO2, But what of the alternative dCi 90 diesel model? That gets 85.6mpg and 85g/km, so it has to be a better buy, right? Not necessarily. In order to recoup this diesel variant's higher asking price back in terms of fuel economy, you'd need to drive a heck of a long way. By our calculations, if you drove 10,000 miles per year - which is a lot for a supermini - you'd need to keep your Clio for over 7 years to make the more expensive diesel model pay for itself back. A driving style monitor (green, yellow or orange) and a Gear Change Indicator (GCI) on the dashboard help drivers improve their driving style to reduce their fuel consumption. The Driving eco2 app available through Renault R-Link provides drivers with information, helping them to analyse their driving style and take corrective measures in order to reduce their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

PCP

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new car.
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.

HP

Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.

This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.

One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.

Lease

Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
