Renault Clio Extreme 4
The Renault Clio Extreme 4 builds on one of the most popular trim levels on this truly exceptional French hatchback, and offers quite a lot in return. It’s stylish, well kitted out, great fun to drive and positive in all areas. Practical enough for families to use on a daily basis but small enough not to remain nippy and frugal, it’s available in 3 or 5 door models and holds masses of appeal. Featuring some great safety and reliability scores, there’s certainly a reason the Clio is one of the best selling hatchbacks around, and engines include 1.2, 1.4 and 1.6 litre petrols, in addition to 1.5 litre diesels.
Indeed the Renault Clio Extreme 4 looks great from all angles and does exactly what you’d expect of a car of this type. It’s confident, well put together inside and actually very comfortable. Perfect as an everyday runabout, there’s 252 litres of boot space, so usability is right up there. In terms of gear and gadgets, you’ll see alloys, air conditioning, cloth sports seats, a CD stereo with media connections, electric windows, a sunroof, no shortage of airbags and remote central locking. Out on the road, the Clio drives very well indeed and is always keen to take on corners, busy streets or highways alike. It can be yours for £3,000 used.
