Snackable Review: Renault Clio

28 Sep 2015 Car Reviews

The Renault Clio is a chic city car with style for days, coupled with proper performance credentials at the top end of the Renaultsport range.

Snackable Review: Renault Clio


  • Styling. The Clio is a bit of a statement with lots of European flair on the outside. It’s perfect for those who want to stray away from the typical small car options.
  • Fun to drive. Renault understands chassis dynamics and its engineers know exactly how to make a car that handles well. It’s especially enjoyable with a manual gearbox.
  • Practicality. In Australia, Clio models are only available in five door configuration, making them convenient when it comes to moving people, pets or paraphernalia.
  • Class. Inside, the Clio’s modern interior feels elegant and roomy. There’s plenty of adjustability to give the driver a seating position that feels just right.
  • Engines. Impressive fuel economy for the entry-level models, and awesome performance in Renaultsport guise.


  • Gearbox. We found the Clio’s automatic gearbox a little slow to react off the line. Not the best for jumping into traffic.
  • Sound imitator. There’s a quirky feature in the Clio’s infotainment system that allows you to recreate different vehicle engine sounds through the speakers. It’s a gimmick, but it doesn’t make a difference to the car itself so it’s no deal-breaker.
