New Renault Clio undercuts rivals with £14,295 price tag

Published 07 August 2019

Orders are now open for the 2020 Renault Clio with prices starting at £14,295 - making it cheaper than the new Vauxhall Corsa, SEAT Ibiza and Ford Fiesta.

That headline figure is for the entry-level Clio Play model combined with the 1.0-litre SCe petrol engine producing 72PS and 95Nm of torque. Set to go on sale in October, the SCe will appeal to those on a budget, but standard kit on the Play model is fairly generous - including LED headlights, cruise control and DAB radio.

The cheapest Clio on sale now starts at £15,295 and is powered by the TCe 100 petrol engine. As used in the Dacia Duster and Nissan Micra, the TCe petrol produces 100PS and 160Nm of torque, taking it to 62mph in 11.8 seconds. Official WLTP fuel economy is 62.1mpg while CO2 emissions are 99g/km.

For those wanting more power, a TCe 130 petrol engine is available combined with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Prices are yet to be announced, but the 130 engine - as used in the Kadjar, Megane and Scenic, offers 130PS and 240Nm of torque. It'll cover 0-62mph in 9.0 seconds and returns 53.0mpg under WLTP tests.

Bucking the anti-diesel trend, the Clio is available with a dCi 85 engine, which starts at £17,295 in Play trim and offers an impressive 73.9mpg. Its 85PS and 220Nm of torque means it'll reach 62mph in 14.7 seconds.

After the Play, the Clio Iconic is the most affordable model on sale - starting at £15,295 when combined with the SCe engine. For that, you get a seven-inch infotainment screen with navigation as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rear parking sensors and 16-inch alloy wheels.

Prices for the Clio S Edition are yet to be confirmed, but standard kit includes climate control, automatic wipers and headlights and 17-inch alloys.

The top-spec Clio R.S. Line starts at £17,795 and features interior and exterior styling from high-performance Renault Sport models, 17-inch alloy wheels, driver modes and a rear-view camera.

Deliveries of the new Renault Clio are expected from October.

The cheapest model will be the Clio Play SCe which will start at £14,295 when it goes on sale in October. The cheapest Clio available to order *now* is the £15,295 Play TCe.
