2002 Renault Clio Dynamic + 1.4 16v petrol from UK and Ireland
It does everything I need cheap insurance relatively quick performance with good economy
Nothing has gone with the car so far.
I used to have a 1.25 fiesta freestyle, now I have a Clio 1.4 16v dynamic.
In my opinion the Clio is better overall for four reasons.
Firstly it uses better materials inside.
Secondly the seats are more comfortable.
Thirdly the performance is better 0 60 in 10.5 seconds, third gear is especially good.
Finally it has a better image.
However there are two main problems.
The roof rattles.
The ride is fairly harsh compared to the fiesta is this due to sports suspension, therefore Can anybody tell me whether a 2002 Clio Dynamic+ 1.4 has sports suspension.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I too drive a 2002 (52) 1.4 Clio dynamique+. I've found the acceleration, in second and third gear to be excellent, managing 70mph out of third alone. The suspension is slightly stiffer than the lower spec models, but it handles great around corners, and the seats are comfy too. However I've had a few rattles from the sunroof, and it's developed a nasty leak (I think) resulting in a soggy driver's seat. Overall a good car for first time drivers, easy to drive, even if the steering wheel is huge, and the turning circle is a little disappointing, which makes parking a little difficult sometimes.

Yes I can definatly confirm the Dynamique + has sport suspension. That's what the + means - aircon and sport suspension as extras.
