Renault Clio 1.2 98-05

Admin October 30, 2011 0

What? Typically pretty french styling combined with old school Renault character. 3 door variant less sensible but marginally better looking than the 5 door. The base 1.2 is economical with 45mpg easily achieved, and 0-100kph takes about 14.5 seconds if need be. Some dodgy colours were popular when it went on sale initially, guys best sticking to black or silver.

+ Very cheap car to repair with parts easily found, nippier than competitors, great looks.

- Reliability could be better, cabin loud at motorway speeds.

Insurance: An 18 year old male, full license, no experience, can expect to pay €2100 p/a depending on many circumstances. Quote

Tax: €286

Reliability: 4/5 (3/5 with higher mileage)

NCAP Safety: 4/5

Cost: A clean 2000 model can now be found at some SIMI registered dealer from the €1400 mark.
