Renault Clio 1.5 dCi: Test Drive Review

Date: 16 September 2011

The Renault Clio dCi 88 Eco, a 88hp 1.5-litre 94g/km model, is the brand's lowest-emitting car yet - ahead of its electric vehicle onslaught coming in the next 12 months or so - and is much better than you'd expect.

Sure, it's not meant for high mileage - although during its test time with BusinessCar it managed this capably - but as an urban runaround it's a brilliant proposition.

Naturally it has excellent fuel efficiency, but considering the size of the car, the amount of mileage achieved without filling up was impressive. Average mpg was around 56.6mpg, although we're confident this would easily be in the 60s without much effort.

With a P11D price of £12,995, costing only £28 a month for a 20% BIK band, and with whole-life costs at 34.9ppm, this car certainly makes sense for low-mileage drivers.
