This is the new Renault Clio!
Looking at it you may not think the Clio has changed that much compared to the predecessor… And when it comes to exterior design, you’d be right! However, once you peer under the skin, you’ll find the Clio has actually undergone a number of changes since the last generation.
Once you're inside, you’ll find a fully revamped interior, with a big infotainment screen and soft-touch material throughout the cabin! Under the bonnet, there’s a number of engines to choose from, including a range-topping 1.6-litre hybrid that’ll achieve 140hp & 64mpg!
But what do you think, would you choose a Clio over alternatives such as the Fiesta, Polo, or a carwow favourite - the Peugeot 208?! You’d better keep watching to see if you should!

  • OSV chanel sets the bar so high for car reviews. They are very classy and professional. But this mental guy here - Mat, comes a a cheap peasant guy how he deals with the car he reviews, making fun of cars and insults. He makes money with the car he reviews thru monetization , so at least give some respect for whatever shortcomings or imperfections a car has. And respect for people who works hard to manufacture such vehicles. You treat the car with disrespect and yet you ask your viewers for referal to Carwow? Grow up man! Age like yours should be well educated to present your self and foul languages on GEworld. What a shame.

  • Build quality isn’t dictated by how soft touch the plastic are. Should be panel gaps, the processing finish of the plastic mouldings and the solidity of everything.

  • That's a huge step forward in terms of interior quality. I had the old clio several times as a rental car and it was so cheaply build in the interior and had an unintuitive multimedia system, but the new one looks really good. And I think they made some progress on the reliability

  • Spanish viewer here. I've just bought this car last month, ended up going with the RS Line 1.3L in black. To me the biggest upside of the car is its interior. About the back seats, it's a Clio so there's not much surprise about the space. When wanting a more spirited driving I highly recommend putting it in sport mode, which makes the steering tighter, fixing the lack of connection that Matt talked about, and the gearbox shifts quicker. One big thing that I haven't seen any review talk about (neither the spanish or english) it's that you can throw it into manual by holding the upshift paddle for about three seconds, doing this while on sport mode give a quite sporty driving experience (despite obviously still being in a Clio) And a big fail to me is not having disk brakes on the rear axle in any specification apart from the 1.5L diesel version, the car brakes great without them but the look is really unflattering. Thanks for the video guys!
