The Renault Clio first burst onto the scene in 1990 and is the only car ever to win the accolade of European Car of the Year twice - once when it first launched, and again in 2005.
The French supermini is now in its fourth generation, having seen three previous iterations: the Clio I (90-98), Clio II (98-2012) and Clio III (06-13).
The Clio is great for those on a tight budget, but are still looking for a fashionable and fun driving experience. There are a plethora of trims available for the Renault Clio, so there’s sure to be a model to suit each driver’s unique style.
Overall, despite it being slightly too small for the taller drivers among us, the Renault Clio is almost unmatched for younger drivers looking for a car that gives real value for money - especially those looking for a diesel model.
Renault Clio insurance group
The insurance group a car belongs to gives you a rough idea of how much it will cost you to insure that particular vehicle. Insurance groups range from 1 to 50, with cars in the higher insurance groups being more expensive to insure, and the cars in the lower insurance groups being cheaper to insure.
The Renault Clio falls into insurance groups 3 to 27 - so it can be relatively cheap to insure, but some more powerful models will fall into much higher insurance groups than the basic variants.
