Thank you to our Stourport on Severn (Worcestershire) based personal leasing customer for sending through pictures of their brand-new “68 plate” car – the Renault Clio.
Having recently received a small facelift and specification upgrade, the Clio has become one of the most popular small (and cheap) car leasing deals.
With massive competition from the UK’s best-selling car, the Ford Fiesta, plus the Peugeot 208, Citroen C3 and the VW Polo (to name but a few!!!) Renault truly have a struggle on their hands to ensure their car is at the forefront of the customer’s decision making process. We have noticed that with the pressure on the family-household, more drivers are choosing to procure one bigger car (normally an SUV) and to also have a smaller vehicle like the Clio. As these hatchbacks have developed, they have added great specification/aesthetics and are no longer a “micro” car.
Even though it might be a tad tight, it is possible for a family of four to now operate with a car of this size.
Add to the mix lower insurance and fuel costs and you have a practical primary, or secondary, vehicle on the family fleet.
In terms of the car shown here, the Renault Clio Hatchback 0.9 TCE 90 Iconic 5 Door (Petrol Manual), this is based on the following configuration:
· Flame Red Special Renault ID Paint
· Style Cloth – Dark Carbon with Grey Inserts
· Gloss Black Air Vent Surround
· 17″ Black Alloy Wheels
As standard the car includes MediaNav with 7” touchscreen, automatic headlights with automatic wipers, 4 x 20W Arkamys radio, extra tinted glass on rear windows, hill start assist, smartphone cradle, cruise control, rear parking sensors, heated door mirrors, electrically adjustable door mirrors, DAB radio, body coloured externals (bumpers/handles), fog lamps, LED daytime running lights, push button starter, 17” black alloys, Thatcham Cat 2 immobiliser, hands free Renault card, 60/40 split fold seats and a deadlocking system. In terms of additional extras consider – the parking pack, techno pack BOSE and space saver spare wheel.
On the technical-side company car and business users can note the P11d at £15,5410.00 and CO2 at 114g/km for working out tax exposure. The 898CC 5 speed turbo petrol engine delivers 56.5 combined MPG, 90ps and 0-62 times of 12.1 seconds.
So would you select the Clio as your next leasing option? Or would you head to the Ford Fiesta, VW Polo or Seat Ibiza or Skoda Fabia or those mentioned above and seen for your next family-hatchback lease car?
