2003 Renaultsport 172 — My 172 is reasonably nippy with pretty good fuel consumption. I think it looks quite attractive, but it does have the typical French interior quality, i.e rattles and squeeks everywhere. It does have a pretty good spec though, including Xenon's, half leather with alcantara, cruise control, steering wheel stereo control etc. It is also quite fun to drive.

Pros: Looks, fuel consumption & spec

Cons: Build quality, 'Chav' image

Dads Car — This car accelerates like an Asthmatic ant pulling a house. There are a million billion rattles and creaks and the left hand front passenger window will occasionally screw up. The car looks quite nice and cutesy. If has a Champagne gold/ green colour. Cost of ownership is nearly none existent with a 1.5 dci engine. We did something like 80 mpg on the motorways. This car will make you fall asleep in a drag race but you can giggle at the people with there V8s, knowing that within the next 50 metres they will have to spend the equivalent of the cost of a small African country.

Pros: Fantastic economy, nice colour.

Cons: It will break. Alot.

Clio — what i like about this car is the stereo, its great as it is mtv version and generally its appearance, although its a small car the engine is powerful, besides that the relation between the transmission and the engine is good. the only thing i dont like of it is that it doesnt respond ok in high hills

Pros: the stereo

Cons: the size

Clio 172 Sport — As a rule I hate French cars but the RenaultSport Clio 172 has been a brilliant car the trim looks like its being fitted by a blind man on closer inspection but the car is great to drive I lived in area where country roads were the norm and around the twisties this car was awesome. It eats motorway for those long journeys and with now 60k on the clock I have never had any issues with it in over 30k miles. It looks good in Black and is a bit of a wolf in sheeps clothing. Fuel prices are good, services every 12k never had an issue with MOTs... the car is loads of fun!

Pros: Performance, Looks, Reliability (for a French Car) Costs interior styling and extras

Cons: French, Eats front tyres and brake pads.

My Hairdryer On Wheels — Performance - It likes to go drive on 2 wheels when going round corners, oh and for an extra "thrill", the steering wheel sometimes falls off! Fun Factor - See above, it's more like the fear factor!! Build Quality - If a bird accidentally sat on it, it would dent the car! Apperance - Hmmm, it's the better looking generation of clio's Cost of Ownership - He's a thirsty car!!

Pros: The stereo is i-pod enabled

Cons: The rest of the car!! ha!

Renault Clio 1.5 Dci — For me,this is the best car for city driving! It has great performances although it has only 65 HP (1.5 L turbo diesel engine). It has good acceleration and pretty good handling. Also it`s fuel consumption is very low. The build quality is very solid. It is also very fun to drive because it has perfect gear shift and much torque. It isn`t expensive and has great styling for that kind of car.

Pros: performance, fuel consumption, interior, braking

Cons: heating
