Renault Clio

renault-clio-2016-motability-carThe all new Renault Clio is a super stylish five door small car, the update for 2016 models adds a new bumper and light configuration so the LED running lights are now incorporated into the headlights cluster, inside the car a few tweaks and softer touch plastics keep the Clio fresh.  The Clio is up against tough competition, the Ford Fiesta  (top selling car in 2015) and the ever popular Vauxhall Corsa are direct rivals but the Clio has all the tools to stand toe to toe with these heavyweights; the Clio has the most spacious interior, it is smooth, quiet and very comfortable to drive and as with all French cars the level of standard equipment is excellent, add great engines and the Clio is an excellent Mobility car choice.

renault-clio-2016-motability-car-rearThree engines are paired to the new Clio, a 1.2 litre petrol with 75 bhp, a 0.9 litre three cylinder petrol engine with 90 brake horse power, which does not hit the heights you would expect, or the excellent, re-engineered 1.5 litre diesel, also with 90 bhp, which is the pick; smooth and quiet offering good performance, 0-62 in 11.7 seconds and a top speed of 112 miles per hour, but the combined economy figure of 83.1 miles per gallon is where this engine scores top points. For those that need an automatic gearbox the 1.5 diesel engine is paired with a six speed dual clutch automatic box which is excellent.
