2001 Renault Clio 2.0 16v 172 — I once drove a Ph2 version of this car as my mother had one. So when I got my chance I bought one for myself. I ended up with a low mileage Ph1 but I absolutely adore it. I have scored it fairly though as it has some faults. One being that for a small cheap hatchback there are no cheap parts (Well not for genuine ones) it has very little space, and it could look better. However there are so many positives. It's fast, we're talking 0-60 in just under 7 seconds and a top speed of over 130mph. To be honest though that's the least impressive part of this cars performance. The best bit is how it handles. I have driven faster cars, more stable cars, and quicker cars over the same roads. However this car is easily the most fun. It tells you everything and gives you all it can, I suppose you could never ask for more! All in all, you can't get better for the price. I got mine for £2600 and I've not had to spend too much in the upkeep of it, I return 35-40 mpg (uk) and I can't complain.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: One of the fastest best value cars for the money

Cons: It's a touch noisy and could look a bit better.

A Good Town Car, Perfect For The City. But That's About It. — It's a fairly decent car. It had a few niggles to start off with, but these have been ironed out now. Performance wise it's nippy, and fun to drive round town, but feels a little stretched on motorways. But for town driving (90% of my driving) it's fine. Very cheap to run, and makes owning it quite easy.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nippy, easy to park, quite funky

Cons: Not as fast as I'd like.....feels a bit frail also

Renault Clio 16v — one hell of a car unbleilvelby fast for the size of the engnie, mint sport seat, all the optional extras, alloy wheels, blue its mint and its cheap to run and for a 1.2 16v it will blow a lot of 1.4s.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: looks mint

Cons: small enigne but still got a lot of go

Fun But Merely A Warm Hatch — Performance is good just lacks power! Build Quality only needed a mount, wheel bearing and new discs and pads in 11 months ownership. Appearance well a lot of money gone into the appearance the pictures can do the talking. Cost of Ownership well it does 34 mpg so what can I say? Fun Factor 10/10 Love opening the throttle! :D

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Not near enough Power!

Clio Rs — Love the performance of this car.. 172hp is far too much power for a 1 ton car. The fuel consumption is quite low in relation to the pleasure it is to drive. The handling is great and you are sur to stay on the road.

Pros: Performance/ cost

Cons: Build quality

Clio 1.2i 16v Expression+ — Clio 1.2i 16V Expression+ Not sure what the "+" added over the standard car. Came with Air Con, ABS and all the electrics you could wish for. Plastic Front wings were interesting. Performance was very slow...but then it was a 1.2. Build quality was pretty good...but the ECU developed a fault that never seemed to be sorted out. It was cheap to buy at £6995, cheap to run and cheap to insure Kept the car for about a year before trading it in for the Mini Cooper

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Slow
