Re: 1.4 clio
If we are talking about the Mk3 version of the clio then I find mine very comfortable on short or long trips..had to do a few longish trips over the last 2 weeks getting a pot hole damaged wheel repaired on my youngest boys car on the motorway my 1.2 performed well returning good MPG ..there were some steepish hills on the trips and as long as I kept my revs up the little 1.2 even got up those IN 5th..you are looking for a 1.4 so with the extra BHP that engine will give you you should be even better off than myself..before you do buy take a look at the 1.2 TCE..lower road tax than the 1.2 and the 1.4 and performance and MPG is excellent by all accounts..good luck with what ever you buy and dont forget to come back and give as a report once you have given the new purchase a bit of an Italian tune up..
