Re: 1.4 clio

Hello and welcome

As said by others, it depends on what you want to use the car for. If it is just town journeys, a 1.2 is probably best. Long motorway journeys and you'll probably want a diesel for the economy. If it's a mix, then a 1.4 or 1.6 petrol would be best, but again if you are young the 1.6 may be too expensive to insure?

From my experience, the 1.2 is too slow. The last one I drove was on a 100 mile journey, by the end i was tired, bored and very dissatisfied with it. I t was just too under-powered for anything outside of town.
