Renault's revised Clio Expression Eco is the cheapest sub-100g/km supermini in the UK
13 May 2011

Renault has launched its new 1.5-litre dCi Clio Expression Eco, a car the company claims is the cheapest sub-100g/km Co2 supermini in the UK.

Prices start from £12,450 for the three-door version, which undercuts its rivals – the £13,895 Ford Fiesta Econetic and £14,860 Volkswagen Polo BlueMotion by £1445 and £2410 respectively. For the five-door car, customers pay a premium of £600.

The frugal diesel unit produces 94g/km of Co2 and over 78mpg, according to Renault. That’s an improvement of 4g/km Co2 and over 2mpg, over its predecessor and enough to give the Clio a range of “949 miles.”

New features of the Clio Expression Eco include 15-inch Aero wheel trims with body-coloured Aero rear spoiler and low resistance tyres, as well as the usual Expression spec - electric front windows and door mirrors and front fog lights.

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
