Expected MPG from the old Clio autos?

Hi guys,

I really like the idea of getting a little Clio automatic for my uni commute. The Avantime is an auto but the V6 just isn't practical at 18 MPG around town. The Mégane is fine at 33 MPG, but the manual box is really starting to get a bit pedantic in rush hour.

Something like this 2000 Clio Initiale. It's a 1.6, and I'm just wondering of it's economy in the real world? Any owners of this engine/gearbox combo on here?
Currently in MéganeDynamique's garage:
Avantime 3.0 V6 24v Privilège Auto, Vel Satis 3.0 dV6 Initiale, Vel Satis 2.2 dCi Auto Privilège, Laguna II 3.0 V6 24v Dynamique, Mégane II 2.0 VVT Dynamique, Mégane 1.6 Auto Privilège+ Convertible, Clio 1.9 RT-D
