I don't know if it applies to the newer diesel Clios but I know some of the diesel Lags have a partculate filter ( FAP )in the exhaust system. Apparently it can be a PIAT and have been known to cause problems causing reduced engine performance.
I take it that by buying a relatively young model you are hoping to have a few years of the manufacturers warranty. As technicaly you would be importing the vehicle it may be prudent to check if the normal 3 year warranty would continue.
