Renault Clio RS220 Trophy v Renault Megane RS265 Cup: Comparison Review

Intra-brand rivalries can be fun. Comparing the top-spec variant of one model in a manufacturer's line-up with the entry-level version of another, can often deliver interesting outcomes. And when the gap between them, in sheer dollar terms anyway, is rather close, things can be even more interesting...

City car comparison : Mazda 2 v Volkswagen Polo v Toyota Yaris v Honda Jazz v Renault Clio

In the past few months, fresh technology once the reserve of expensive premium cars has made a final cascade to one of the most affordable classes – light hatchbacks. The ‘cascade effect’ is nothing new in the automotive industry, where advanced equipment starts only in the priciest cars and eventually filters down into cheaper models as years go by...

2001 Renault Clio Sport Review

It's small, and it has a lot of rattles and it's not the most refined car in the world but I love it. Renault Sport built their reputation on driver's cars and this is certainly one of those. My particular example has had the typically made-of-cheese French engine mounts replaced with rigid items which greatly increases NVH but also increases throttle response (and they won't need to be replaced again!)...

2015 Renault Clio Rs 200 SPORT Review

Got mine as an ex-demo at an amazing prize. $24,999 to be exact. Considering the price I was always going to be impressed but this is a vehicle I would have payed double that for.(okay....maybe I'd rather have the Megane RS..) None the less I can't heap praise on this car enough. The sport being the base model does not feel in anyway shape or form an entry level 'cheap skate' into the RenaultSport brand...

2014 Renault Clio Rs 200 CUP Trophy Review

The Clio RS 200 cup trophy is a fun car to drive, whether it be around town or on the open road. It allows you to drive sedately or use sport and race mode when you want a different driving experience. I have now done 11000kms and my average fuel economy has been 8.64L/100km using premium unleaded...
