Current Clio soldiers on beneath the new Clio III as the budget Campus model
22 October 2005

For those who can't stretch to the new bigger, costlier Clio III - or those who simply prefer the cheeky current car - Renault has good news. The Clio II will stay on sale in the UK as the Clio Campus, just as the Renault 5 did after the launch of the original Clio in the 1990s.

Production moves to Slovenia to make room for the new Clio in Renault's French factories, and the old car will undercut its younger brother - and equivalent models in the current range - in Campus and Campus Sport trims.

The Campus comes as 59bhp 1.2 petrol (£7895) or 67bhp 1.5 diesel (£9495), both with radio cassette player, 60:40 split/fold rear seat and steel wheels. If you want alloy wheels, spoiler, sports seats, silvered dashboard trim and front fog lamps, you can opt for the Campus Sport in £8595 74bhp 1.2 16-valve petrol or £9495 67bhp 1.5 diesel forms.

All engines are Euro IV-compliant, and all models feature ABS with EBD, driver and passenger airbags.
