Renault Clio 'could be a cost-effective choice'

Fri, 17 Oct 2008
People looking for car buying advice may be interested to hear the Renault Clio achieved a 27 per cent improvement in fuel economy during this year's MPG Marathon.

According to the manufacturer, this jump in performance is a sign of its continuing commitment to green motoring.

The marathon is designed to highlight the benefit of smart driving techniques and saw teams complete a 400-mile round trip from Bristol to Macclesfield.

Renault claimed the result achieved by its model was achieved by making simple changes to the motorists' driving style such as not over-revving when moving off from traffic lights.

One of the drivers who took the wheel for the manufacturer was Richard Bremner from Clean Green Cars.

He stated: "The Clio Sport Tourer was one of the bigger cars in its class, but nevertheless managed 81.9 mpg - and without going painfully slowly."

In other motoring news, Renault recently signed a deal with EDF which it claims could see it become the world leader in zero-emission vehicle production.
