Renault’s popular supermini
The new Renault Clio is currently on offer for only £169 per month; this popular supermini is one of the UK’s best loved cars and has sold over one million in the UK alone. It is not surprising that it is so popular as it returns an incredible 88.3mpg and there is no road tax to pay so this car has to be a first choice if you are looking to save some money.
There are four trim levels offered; the Expression, Expression+, Dynamique MediaNav and Dynamique S MediaNav. The exterior of the Renault Clio boasts a sporty contemporary look, the sport look is due to the car being wider and lower and with a longer wheelbase that its predecessor and there is the option of a panoramic fixed glass sunroof. There is a range of extra features from mirror covers, grille, rear bumper skirt, lower door guards, the roof stripes and wheels, and in-built technologies which can all be chosen to personalise your car and there are seven colours to choose from. The new Clio also boasts the new R-Link technology which means the driver is linked up to the vehicle, their smartphone and ‘the cloud’, all through the click of a button. This system can be touch or voice activated ensuring complete ease of use for the driver at all times. Standard equipment is also impressive including driver/passenger/side and curtain airbags, Bass Reflex speaker system, electric front windows and door mirrors, Bluetooth radio with USB port and jack socket, ESC (Electronic Stability Control) and ETC (Electronic Traction Control), folding front passenger seat, Hill Start Assist, keyless entry and ignition and 7” touchscreen MediaNav infotainment system with integrated navigation.
