The Renault Clio, is proving to be just as desirable as a used car as it is new having being hailed as ‘Best Supermini’ in the Auto Express ‘Best Used Cars 2008’ awards.

Beating off all its major competitors, Ford Fiesta, Honda Jazz and Fiat Grande Punto, Clio impressed the judges with its wide range of engine choices, low running costs, stylish, appealing good looks and fuel economy.

One of the judges, former used car dealer turned TV presenter, Mike Brewer, was particularly enthusiastic about Clio, commenting that; “The Renault is fine looking with a great image and fun-handling.  While the Jazz is a good all-rounder, the Clio is more desirable – particularly with younger drivers.”

In awarding Clio as its ‘Best Supermini’, Auto Express also said; “If you want style and a great driving experience without compromising on either economy or safety, then the Clio is for you.”

Clio III achieves the accolade of ‘Best Supermini’ in the used car market, after just three years on sale and is a further endorsement of Renault’s continued improvements in product quality which in turn have boosted its residual values across other recent models. New Laguna’s impressive residual values put it amongst the top three of its segment, and the recently launched 4x4 crossover, Renault Koleos, is also amongst the best in its category for RVs.
