Renault Clio Owner Car Reviews

2003 Renault Clio Expression Verve review

Six and a bit years ago, 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 nine-year-old Renault Clio with 143,000km. It came time to say goodbye at just after 260,000km when a long trip overseas came calling, the list of things that would need doing in the future came to $1800, and the registration was due...

2005 Renault Clio Sport Cup review

Coming from a Japanese hot hatch background, in 2010 my friend had a 182 Cup and invited me for a drive around Healesville. Three corners later I was convinced it was better, and three minutes later it felt like I could drive near to its limits. In 2012, a Clio 182 Cup in FRB came up for sale with 29,000km, and I snapped it up for around $16K...

2014 Renault Clio Expression review

It's been two years since I last submitted a review on my little Clio (Theo), and in that time my love for the little guy has only grown. Theo and I have relocated to Melbourne now from Sydney, and he did a solid job on the drive down. I've also just come back from a trip to Tasmania, where Theo took my mates and I across the entire state...

2017 Renault Clio RS 200 Sport review

For a small French-based car, the Renault Clio RS is an unsuspecting powerhouse of super-impressive performance and handling. The Clio is definitely showing its racing roots in the new 2017 models. With launch control standard and superior handling, this car is everything you would ever want out of a hatchback...

2015 Renault Clio RS200 Sport review

We purchased the little Renault for my wife. We both loved the performance and the styling of the Clio, and we liked the way the car looks like a coupe but has five doors. My wife also liked the red stitching in the seats and the red seatbelts. The five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty also helped make our minds up about buying the car...

2005 Renault Clio Sport 182 Cup F1 review

Research, magazine reviews, and word of mouth confirmed this Clio would be insane fun. Evo, Car and many other UK car mags that I had read years ago loved the Clio, and the first test drive of one confirmed all of the quirks and awesomeness. The particular colour (French Racing Blue) was a big pull, as were the aftermarket wheels and Koni/Eibach suspension combo...

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...

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...
