One of the best small hatchbacks currently available, the Renault Clio has much to recommend it. For a start, it’s a great-looking car. It also boasts a cleverly conceived interior, comes well-equipped as standard and is very safe to travel in. The vehicle has a fine range of petrol and diesel engine options too. As far as critical attention goes, verdicts have been very favourable. Carbuyer, for instance, bestowed two awards on the Clio in 2020: Best Small Car and Car of the Year.
