Car Finance for the Clio Renault Sport

Abi Moses Tuesday 4th, 10:13

While French cars have for years been on the receiving end of criticism Renault has proven the rumours wrong, with their Renault Clio Sport being one of the most popular cars amongst young UK drivers. Prevailing a sort of attitude it is popular for car finance, with its low asking price giving way to a lower rates of monthly payments.  

 

With the standard Clio being a first car for many the Sport version is a whole different story, showcasing attitude and panache. Sitting at the cheaper end of the sports hatchback section the car has flared arches, bespoke bodywork and delivers a smooth ride despite its vivacious turbocharged engine. 

 

Offering 177lb ft of torque from as low as 1,750rpm the Clio Sport is out to impress and does so with ease. 

 

Inside  

 

Having recently enjoyed a facelift the Sport is now built with touchscreen entertainment and a shapely dashboard, with the French carmakers modernising the cabin to bring it up to date. With the Cup version there is also an R-Link system, there to replace the normal engine sound with a choice of artificial noises through the car’s speakers.  

 

While a little gimmicky for many it is certainly a unique feature that petrol heads have welcomed with open arms. The soundtracks on offer include the old-school Alpine A110, angry Clio V6 and the Nissan GT-R, all making sure you will get noticed when out on the road. 

 

Price 

 

At the cheaper end of the spectrum we have the 12-16v expression 5dr, coming in at £11,090. Extraordinarily cheap when sat next to its contenders, the Golf GTI, BMW 1 Series and the A Class AMG, the Clio provides a lot of car even if you are working with a tight budget. 

 

However, if it is speed and performance that you are looking for you will have to fork our a little more, with the fastest version being the 1.6T 16V Trophy Nav 220 Automatic. With a top speed of 164mph and 220bhp this car basks in attitude, with Renault asking £21,595 for the pleasure of ownership.
