This weekend, Renault will be celebrating 20 years of the Clio by offering 1000 1.2 Extremes available for just £7,450, the same price as a Clio RL 1.2 from the 1990s

As part of a 20-day festival to mark the iconic Clio's 20th birthday, between 21 and 23 May 2010, Renault dealers will sell 1,000 Clio Extreme 1.2 models for the same price as a Clio RL 1.2 from the early 90s. Taking the modern day version's price down to £7,450. That's £3,590 off the £11,040 list price.

Finally found the actual Renault page; it's only a press release - this offer should be available from your local Renault dealer you shouldn't have to go through anyone special.

Wrong link?
suspended#2
That link doesn't take you to the deal and on the Renault website there is no mention ...

Funny how they now drop the prices by over £2000 now scrappage has finished ..

Car Dealer = Rip off merchants..

System auto added that link - I added as offline only for Renault, think system just puts in stored Renault link in.

Honest John has a good pic of the Advert (Couldn't find anything on the actual Renault site) but also heard this offer on Radio this morning so definitely real.

Reliability is also the same as 1990.
#5
Seems like a pretty good deal. Can't say I'd have been prepared to buy one at the original £11040 list price though.

This is probably a better link:

Have updated the link at top.

Wifes 4 years into her second Clio (kept the last one for 9 years).

Never a problem with either of them :thumbsup:
#8
Ive always had Clio's.
Quality cars :)
#9
They seem to be available for around £8,500, so not a bad deal. Comes with air con as well I think. 0-62 in 13.4 seconds, though.
#10
Metallic paint an exrtra £405
#11
If I work this out right. Then its £7,450 for the basic version. But i currently have a clio over 7 years old so could use the swappage scheme and potentially bring it down to £4,950.

Might go down the dealer later and atleast take a look.

It is French for god sake!

I thought the scrappage scheme had finished!

I've always had Renaults, ever since my trusty Renault 5 Campus which never let me down no matter how much abuse I gave it. Quality cars.
#20
Must be hit and miss, but every french car i owned hasn't been great... They are however very comfy! lovely soft suspension and smooth ride quality... shame about the cheap plastic interior... by cheap i mean chic!

I agree, french cars arnt fantastic for reliability but this is a pretty good buy tbh. I personally stick by german or japanese cars

Still a great deal though

:o I can nearly get to 60, then stop, then get to 60 again in that time...

Heck, that even makes my old Mini look fast, it'll get there in somewhere around 11.6!

Is the 1.2 the base model or do they do an even slower one!?! i reckon the 1990 Clio had a 1.0 litre model, so really this isn't like for like, it's a current low range model for the price of a 1990 mid range one?

Which, judging by your avatar is why you own a Spanish car? :thumbsup:

I have not owned a Clio, but have run two Megane's without fault for the past 5 years. The only other new car that I have owned and had zero problems with was a much more expensive Subaru.

I have also owned 3 new VW's, one BMW and a Fiat. All of these had nothing but problems. The Fiat was expected, but German cars are geatly overrated.

The French may indeed be loathesome, but in my experience they make pretty good cars. Good deal.

Seat is part of the VAG group, all the components are VW

Good price for individuals looking for a new car on a budget.
#27
Lets not drag this thread down about car maker reliability, total can of worms.

Keep up mate.
Firstly it was called "scrappage scheme". Now that that's been flogged harder than a dead horse, some manufactures are continuing to try and fool consumers with "swappage scheme".
No one pays list price for a car. So before scrappage and swappage we had "NEGOTIATION".

Hope that helps :thumbsup:
#29
Not really what I've been looking for but if they honour the swappage scheme on top, I'd buy one of these right now at this price! I suspect that they will go pretty quickly (in sales, not on the road).

Why think when it's much easier spout out of date prejudices and snobbery. The folk on this thread rubbishing Renault and all French cars in general are sadly behind the times. Assembly methods and car quality has advanced in leaps and bounds in recent years. It is now difficult to buy a bad car IMHO. Granted, some are better than others. Several marques suffer from poor perception and hence prestige. It is no coincidence that the best selling supermini in Europe for some time has been the French Peugeot 207. Honest John himself, advises that anyone who buys a new Golf is paying well over the odds for a car that is inferior in quality and performance to other mass produced rivals such as the Ford Focus. *end of rant*

Bought a Clio in 2002. In 5 years and 72,000 miles it never missed a beat.
Bought another one in 2007. 38,000 miles so far it's been 100%.
The new one is bigger and more solid than the old one.
Will probably get another one in 2012.

true, its because the French are far more patriotic and most buy french cars, regardless of quality :p

and all the hairdressers in the UK like Peugeots :)

indeed, one of the biggest problems on the internet is the know-it-alls on the forums and weak minded people who believe everything they read!

I used to visit HUKD a lot, now not so much as I am bored of these negative comments for genuine deals.

Do you know how long you need to have owned your current car for to qualify?

Swaggage savings are based on manufactureres RRP, but nice try!

Its crazy to think that the current 1.2 engine in the Clio is basically the same engine as the one in the 1990 model, bar the obvious upgrades/addition of fuel injection! The car is a lot safer now though!

I think the motoring press like to slate the french cars but from my experience, if you stick to a smaller french car and a more basic model at that, they are fine (there less to go wrong!). Mechanically they are sound.

This seems a good deal for a decent runabout, especially with car prices as high as they are now (cant believe Ford have the utter cheek to ask over £14k for a mid-range fiesta, no matter how good it is, madness!). The engine is the 16v version so although the figures dont look great, it is fairly willing.
#37
This has been mentioned a couple of times but no real answer - is the swappage/scrappage/whatever scheme still running, and if so will the dealer knock a further £2K off this price if I trade in my wife's old car (which incidentally is a 1996 Clio that she has owned since 1999 and has never once let her down despite suffering terrible neglect!)?

*Edit - person above answered my question whilst I was typing my post!
