Should I get a Kia Rio or Renault Clio via the scrappage schemes?

I want to buy a new car via the scrappage schemes. I need a boot of about 350 litres, which brings my final choice down to the Renault Clio or Kia Rio. Which is the better built car and, doing 10,000 miles per year, which will have a better resale value after five years?

The Rio 1.0T, simply because it comes with a seven year warranty versus the four year warranty of the Clio.
