What you get with the Renault Clio Dynamique S is a higher end spec that has some sporty undertones, a good level of equipment, great driving experience and loads of everyday usability. It’s a very well designed hatchback that’s available as a 3 door, and showcases everything that’s good about French style. Superb for families who want something small and easy to live with, the Clio also appeals to new drivers and people who live in busy areas. Great value for money in all regards, engines include 1.4 and 1.6 litre petrols as well as a 1.5 litre diesel.
Absolutely fantastic to look at, this is a hatchback that knows how to impress, and you really do get the impression that it wants to be the best. Some nice shapes and angles outside are complemented by a cabin that’s well put together, stylish, nicely practical and quite spacious up front; there’s also 242 litres of boot space. Turn your attention to kit and you’ll find the likes of air conditioning, alloy wheels, an alarm, CD stereo, cloth sports seats, electric windows, heated mirrors, front and side airbags, and remote central locking. It’s a lot of fun to drive and there’s a nice amount of punch from the engine, as well as sharp and responsive steering. Get one for £6,000 used.
