Materials used do feel a little cheap and there are some areas where you feel disappointed in the tactile nature of the interior. While the gearbox itself is not exactly cutting edge or groundbreaking, it gets the job done and those who require an automatic gearbox in a stylish city car are unlikely to find fault with it.

    The Clio automatic is a solid addition to the range. Renault would do well to upgrade the dual-clutch system though, as it can be slow to get moving and jerky at times. Some minor trim quality issues, gearbox is not as responsive as rivals.
