Ten Second Review
Less is more is a phrase that applies very well to the latest generation Renault Clio, most specifically the models powered by the three-cylinder 899cc TCe petrol unit. While this might sound like not enough engine, the 90PS powerplant is characterful and will make better financial sense than the diesels for many.
In this country at least, we've almost become brainwashed into thinking that if we want to cut down on the costs of running a car, we need a diesel engine. You'll have seen the astronomical fuel consumption figures that seem to promise a whole week's driving before you need to fill the tank again, but as with many things that seem to good to be true, there are often holes in the story. And so it is with diesel engines, especially when they're fitted to small cars like the Renault Clio. The fact of the matter is that if you bought and ran a Clio for, say, three years, I'd be willing to wager that unless you covered huge mileages, you'd be far better off with an engine like the three-cylinder TCe 899cc unit that we're looking at here. The bonus? It makes the Clio even better fun to drive.
Renault isn't alone in offering a downsized petrol engine. Many of its rivals are at it and you can get a sub-litre engine in the Peugeot 208 and the Ford Fiesta and very good they are too. Of the three though, it's hard to look past the Renault Clio TCe. For a start, it makes 90PS, which is way better than the Peugeot 208 1.0's 68PS and also beats the Ford Fiesta 1.0's 80PS power output. It's a fun engine to drive as well due in no small part to the fact that it weighs so little. The front of the car is so eager to turn into a corner. You've just got to learn to trust the quick but slightly arcade game steering feel. The first three-cylinder powerplant ever produced by Renault, this turbocharged engine features an ultra low-inertia turbo that whistles into action from low engine speeds, developing 90PS and 135Nm at just 2000rpm. In fact, fully 90 per cent of peak torque is available from 1,650rpm to 5,000rpm. It'll get to 60mph in just 11.9 seconds on the way to a top speed of 112mph but you'll need to work the gear stick.
Design and Build
Perhaps the biggest step change in the development of the fourth generation Clio is Renault's rationalisation of the car down to a single body style - for the time being at least. Out go the sporty three-door cars and in comes a bigger five-door model, although it has to be said that the sleek styling is a departure from the usual frumpy five-door supermini shape. The Clio's front end design features a prominent Renault logo, set bold and upright to a gloss black background, an arrangement first seen on the DeZir concept car. The sporty silhouette is achieved by integrated rear door handles concealed close to the rear quarter lights and cleverly disguised shut lines. With a lower ride height, wider tracks, wheels pushed out wide within the arches and a reduction in the gap between the wheels and wheel arches, the Clio looks hunkered down and purposeful. What would Nicole and Papa have made of all this? The interior is an even bigger step onwards from iteration three of the Clio. That car ushered in a bigger, more spacious cabin and the fourth generation model builds on that with massively improved perceived quality. The dashboard is sculpted in the shape of an aircraft wing, with a multimedia system on the centre console, a wide range of colour options, a digital speedometer, striking seats and chrome and gloss-black trim highlights.
Market and Model
The 0.9 TCe engine is offered with Expression+, Dynamique and Dynamique S trim levels. The first pair of trims are also available in an ECO model that squeezes a few more miles from a gallon of 95RON. Prices start at around £13,000 which undercuts several key rivals, despite the Clio being a larger car than many. Available as standard from Dynamique upwards for the Clio, Renault's R-Link infotainment system features a wide seven-inch (18cm) touchscreen with voice control. This marshals functions such as TomTom connected navigation, including Live services, a connection with the car's own electronic systems which permits access to an eco driving function (Driving eco) and even access to the Renault R-Link Store, a specialised Application Store where users can view or download a range of apps from their car or computer. Whichever version of the Clio you choose, you get punchy Renault Bass Reflex door speakers and Bluetooth-equipped radios for hands-free telephone operation and audio streaming from portable music players with both USB and jack sockets. Buyers will be able to personalise the outside of their car with a selection of colour touches to the front grille, rear and side door inserts. To personalise the interior, the menu covers the dashboard, door panels, steering wheel, grab handles, gear lever and air vent surrounds, upholstery materials and optional floor mats.
Cost of Ownership
The TCe petrol engine makes some very interesting figures. The standard model will return 62.8mpg on the combined cycle and the economy version of the Energy TCe 90 can squeeze 65.7 miles from a gallon of unleaded. That's a 21 per cent improvement in miles per gallon compared to the old TCe 100 powerplant. But what of the diesel model? That gets 83.1mpg so it has to be a better buy, right? Not necessarily. In order to recoup that back in terms of fuel economy, you'd need to drive a heck of a long way. By my calculations, if you drove 10,000 miles per year - which is a lot for a supermini - you'd need to keep your Clio for over 7 years to make the more expensive diesel model pay for itself back. Emissions are 104g/km for the standard models and 99g/km for the ECO variants. A driving style monitor (green, yellow or orange) and a Gear Change Indicator (GCI) on the dashboard help drivers improve their driving style to reduce their fuel consumption. The Driving eco app available through Renault R-Link provides drivers with information, helping them to analyse their driving style and take corrective measures in order to reduce their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Being a new model, residual values are bound to stack up better than the Clio III, further driving down the overall cost of ownership.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new car.
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.
Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.
Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
