2002 Renault Clio Sport 172 2.0 16v from Australia and New Zealand
A Honey that Handles!
A minor issue with an electrical connection under the front passenger seat (Left side). There is a loose wire (s) in the connector causing the airbag warning lamp to alight.
This car has me smiling every time I drive! I cannot believe just how fantastic a drive it is. I seem to find myself making excuses to go for a drive now or taking the long way home.
The engine is a cracker. It purrs and has even more potential than the car comes with in standard form. I have upgraded mine with a "Powerchip" ECU remap and it makes the honey even sweeter.
The cabin is a really comfy place to be. The seats are not overly plush, but have great support and are comfortable over distance.
The steering is pinpoint accurate and the handling is progressive, sporty and gives you bags of feedback.
It is really a gem and I cannot praise the people at Renault more highly for building a true drivers car without cutting corners. For the money it is a league above the competition IMHO.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
