New Clio 1.2 16v Turbo 100
A little cracker of an engine the 1.2 TCE, Just what the new Clio needed to return some of the Va Va Voom to the range which I felt was lacking in the new Clio.
I would say it was the best of the bunch, The 1.5 diesel is good but this is so much better and suits the car, In the option that I have at the moment shod with 195/50 R16 Continental tyres a cracker of a car to drive, comes with the sports body kit, dark rear windows in Pearl black body colour .
Gear change is a bit long, sits on the road very well absorbs bumps and ruts but can get unsettled by a series of bumps, It was fitted with the steering lights which were not as good as other makes I have driven but ok.
Brakes were very good tho wheels did black up quickly from dust due to the small discs, Steering is very direct and quick lacking in precise feel but still good.
V.E.D is £115 annually quite a bit more than the diesel .
