Renault Clio offers more space in a supermini

Motorists looking for a larger vehicle from within the supermini segment could opt for a Renault Clio, it has been stated.

In a review of the Renault Clio Dynamique S 1.5 DCI, Malcolm Robertshaw has revealed that the latest Clio is a lot larger than its predecessor, with the cabin in particular giving the impression of a large amount of spaciousness.

Writing for the Ayrshire Post, Mr Robertshaw indicates that there is ample room for four standard-sized adults, while passengers are also given "generous" amounts of head, leg, shoulder and knee room.

Meanwhile, both drivers and passengers will be able to benefit from space in the boot, with 288 litres on offer with the seats in use and this increases to 694 litres with only the front seats occupied.

In terms of its on the road credentials, the 1.5-litre diesel engine allows the car to cruise to a 118 miles per hour top speed, while also being able to accelerate to 62 miles per hour from still in 11.1 seconds.

Overall, Mr Robertshaw highlights that the latest Clio is "much more refined and mature than its predecessor", allowing drivers to have more fun behind the wheel.

The 2009 Renault Clio is available in both three and five-door forms.
