Good: Bigger and better looking Clio an improvement on previous model. Both 90 TCe petrol and 90 dCI diesel under 100g/km CO2.
Bad: Interior quality doesn't match rivals. UK cars have offset pedals and wheel. Steering on 90 TCe a little light.
Good: Impressive handling and grip. Improved refinement and ride compared to previous version. Vastly improved by 220 Trophy model on 18-inch Michelin Pilot SuperSports.
Bad: Lost the raw edge of the old Clio Renaultsport. No manual gearbox option only twin-clutch EDC with paddleshifts.
Good: Much better looking than previous Scenic. Larger boot and better quality interior.
Bad: Prices have increased slightly.
Good: Renault styled alternative to Nissan Qashqai. 4WD handles well due to independent rear suspension. Refined. Reasonably economical. Choice of 1.5 110HP or 1.6 130HP diesel engines.

Bad: Double passenger seat squabs too short for long distance comfort.
Good: Excellent cabin quality, a superb (and massive) touchscreen infotainment setup, very well priced and equipped, surprisingly quiet diesel engines.
Bad: Lower specification models have a dull cabin, four-wheel steer can feel odd, GT model isn't very exciting.
Good: Handling ability is a huge asset and it remains the benchmark for its class. Affordable with reasonable running costs for a hot hatch.
Bad: The infotainment screen and navigation are dated. Refinement is not as good as in some rivals which is a trade-off for the Megane’s raw nature.

Bad: Not arriving until September 2016.
Good: Practical back row and large boot. Generous level of standard safety technology. Easy to drive.

Bad: Expensive to buy. Lacks motorway refinement. Limited seat adjustment. Not as many on the streets as stablemate Smart ForFour.
