Renault Clio Hatchback 2.0 16v Renaultsport 182

Price: 14,700 For: The 182 is quick enough to see off a Honda Civic Type-R and the storming V6 255 will hunt down supercars.
Against: The V6 255 is ludicrously expensive and, because the engine is mounted where the rear seats should be, hopelessly impractical.



Performance Ride Handling Refinement
Range-topping Clios are seriously quick Errs towards touring comfort Engines are vocal; V6 sounds great


Performance

The 2.0-litre's output has been uprated to 182bhp and it is the most powerful front-drive supermini you can buy. It backs this up with suitably quick performance when driven hard, although if you're not in a rush it's perfectly civilised at more sedate pace. The 3.0-litre V6 255 is something else: equally docile for everyday use, but monstrously quick at the right time and in the right place.


Handling

Renault has revised the chassis of the 182 and it is now set up to deliver something closer to fast touring comfort rather than thrills. The recently revised V6 is now much more hard-edged than before, but still boasts fantastic poise and grip. Traction is still the hot Clio's Achilles heel. Full throttle openings away from a standstill, even with standard traction control engaged, produce lots of wheel spin as the front wheels scrabble for grip.


Refinement

A bit of noise is part of the hot hatch experience. The 2.0-litre gives off a throaty sound, but the V6 255 comes across more like a muted racing unit with the notes coming from behind your ears. Road and wind noise is there but not excessively so. The precision and smoothness of some controls, especially the gearshift, are disappointing.

    Buying Quality Safety and Security
    Expensive to buy and run Low-rent look to cabin trim Proven safety and fair security


    Buying
    The 182 is only marginally cheaper than the bigger (and better) Honda Civic Type-R. The costly V6 255 is for connoisseurs only. Both are much more expensive to insure and maintain than other Clios, and will get through tyres and brake pads much faster if driven hard. Residuals are reasonable for the class.


    Quality

    Clios are durable and easy to work on. The mid-mounted V6 inevitably introduces greater complexity, but generally there's nothing to worry about. Servicing is needed only once every two years or 18,000 miles, and there's now a three-year mechanical warranty. The fly in the ointment is cheap look of plastics and controls.


    Safety and Security

    As with any other Clio, the hot models have driver, passenger and side airbags and anti-lock brakes, but no traction control mechanisms. The crash structure has been proven by a four-star Euro NCAP rating. Security is not so impressive due to the absence of deadlocks. We broke in in less than 30 seconds but the immobiliser resisted drive-away.

    Behind the Wheel Space and Practicality Equipment
    Falls down on driving position Doesn't live up to 'size matters' ad campaign Kit list is generous
    Behind the Wheel

    The new Clio still suffers much of the old model's poor driver's seat adjustment. At least these two, having more sporty seats than their lesser brethren, offer drivers more support, and the materials and trim are of a generally higher quality. The control and switchgear layout could be better, as could visibility, especially in the mid-engined V6.


    Space and Practicality

    Renault's ads give the impression the long-in-the-wheelbase Clio is a particularly spacious supermini. In fact, rear legroom is mediocre against the best in class, and in the V6, it is reasonable. However, the new rear suspension does not interfere with a large, well shaped boot.

I drove a Clio Sport 2.0 16V when I was in South Africa a few months back. It was a great car till you turned on the Aircon and lost a bit of power but its the same in any car I suppose.

I didnt like how easy it was to throw arround. I prefer a bit of drive in my cars.

Nice and nippy litte things that are easy to handle and park and not too girlie..

I prefer Saloon style cars tho.

Its cool for throwing it into corners, and i think the tyres work better in the wet. Currently running the Michelin Pilot Exalto PE02's (205/45/16)which were standard on the car, i had too buy 2 in feb at a retail price of 135 each.....eek..

I found a little garage in Johnstown that would do them for 85 each as they messed the price up.
