2015 Renault Clio RS track day review - Sandown Raceway

Read the article here. Renault likes to think of its RS cars as having DNA that comes from the racetrack but translates to the road. Well, today, we’re going back the other way, taking the city-dwelling Clio RS to Sandown Raceway for another CarAdvice weekend warrior track test… Now my voice might not be the best today but luckily it’s not about me it’s about this...

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...

Renault’s hot hatch on steroids, the Renault Clio RS.16, could soon be headed for the production line. And, in potentially good news for Aussie fans of the Reggie, a limited number could be built in right-hand drive - with a small allocation set for our shores. While recent rumours hinted at Renault making an official announcement at the Paris motor show, no confirmation was forthcoming...

2018 Renault Clio to feature a ‘revolutionary’ interior - report

The next-generation 2018 Renault Clio will have a completely different cockpit, according to a new report out of the UK.

2017 Renault Clio RS 16 spied

The Renault Clio RS 16 seems like it will soon be heading into production, if these spy photos are anything to go by. Compared to the Clio RS 16 concept that made its debut just before the Monaco Grand Prix, this prototype seems to be missing a few items, including flared wheel arches, 19-inch alloy wheels, chequered flag-style driving lights, and squared off exhaust tips...

2014 Renault Clio Expression Review

I've had my little Clio for just over two years now and during this time, I'd developed a strong affection for it. Despite my initial reservations about purchasing a French car, it's surprisingly been absolutely faultless in the time that I've owned it. The Clio is quite well equipped and at the time that I purchased the car, it was the cheapest new car in Australia with standard satellite navigation...

2003 Renault Clio Expression Verve Review

I've had my Clio for 4.5 years now. I needed a cheap temporary car, and after a few too many drinks one night and an online auction, I became the new owner of a 9 year old Renault Clio. It had 143,000km, and I've since put another 90,000km on it. Despite my tipsy state, coming from a bigger newer car, the 4 airbags, ABS, and 4 star safety were what got me interested in the Clio...

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...
