New car ratings & reviews

Renault Clio

(2019 - present)

The Renault Clio is a small, supermini-class hatchback. The latest fifth-generation model was unveiled at the 2019 Geneva motor show and is due to arrive in the UK in late 2019.

Like the last model, the new Clio is only available as a five-door hatchback. A high-performance Clio RS version is not expected, although a hybrid model is likely to join the range sometime in 2020.

The reviews we have analysed to date have all been from the European press launch, with the UK launch yet to take place. We will continue updating this page as local reviews are published.

The initial reviews for the new Renault Clio have been broadly positive, with particular praise for its refinement and high-quality interior. However, it is not considered as good to drive as the Ford Fiesta. At this stage, the Clio’s overall Expert Rating puts it in the top half of the supermini class, albeit some distance behind the class leaders.
