I have a 2005 Clio dCi 80.
Superb economy: expect 65 mpg on the motorway and up to 600 miles per tank of diesel
Performance is mostly fine for this type of car
Very comfortable: superb front seats and a compliant ride
Completely reliable: my car has done 14,600 miles in nine months and nothing has gone wrong
Cheap: £7500 will get whatever you want
Excellent hi-fi including a CD player on some models
Very good air conditioning on some models
Plastic front wings, so if you damage them, repair is cheap
Build quality is not the best
Not much overtaking reserve at 70 mph (but you could get a dCi 100 or a larger petrol)
So, there you go, then. You can see that the good points outweigh the not-so-good. Go ahead and get a Clio, and have fun.
