The best £ for £ hot hatch on sale in the UK at present, RRP is £16930 so a saving of over £2000. Usual discounters only offer about £700 off this car so this is really good deal IMO.

Featuring a new, more aggressive design, increased power and a wide choice of personalisation, Clio Renaultsport 200 takes the Renaultsport favourite to the next level.



Building on the existing qualities of Clio Renaultsport 197, the latest Renaultsport version of the brand's best-selling model resumes its status as the most popular hot hatch in its class and the benchmark by which all others are judged.



The impressive new look incorporates F1-style frontal aerodynamics to improve performance both on the road and on the track while the rear diffuser, normally only found on high-end sporting cars, sucks the chassis to the ground, reaffirming its racing pedigree.



Under the bonnet, Clio 200 is powered by the latest-specification normally-aspirated 2.0 16V engine delivering an extremely high level of performance for the hot hatch segment. Peak power has been increased by 3hp while the low-end torque has been boosted by an impressive 20 per cent.



First, second and third gear ratios have all been shortened for punchier acceleration delivered through a manual six-speed gearbox and powering the Clio 200 from standstill to 62mph in just 6.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 141mph. Despite this, both its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have been reduced, returning 34.4mpg in the combined cycle.



The Clio Renaultsport 200 range is also once again offered in two distinct versions: Clio Renaultsport 200 Cup – for enthusiastic drivers who are passionate about their driving, and Clio Renaultsport 200 – for those seeking a well-equipped performance car yet still with the option of the Cup chassis.



To meet customer demand even more closely, the Renault i.d. range of personalisation offers customers a wide choice of customisable options including the addition of three new exterior colours in the form of Alien Green, Mercury and Pearlescent Liquid Yellow. In addition to the exterior, the interior can also be tailored with a new range of finishes and upholsteries with other options including the new Carminat TomTom®, the first integrated GPS navigation system.

The main dealers will match this if you go now before end of August and the reg change plus with broadspeed you pay extra for the add on's so total cost could be well more than this!!!

Top tip always go to the dealer towards the end of the month as there is a good chance they have not hit there monthly sales target so a deal could be had.....worked for me.

What's with the coldness? Price of petrol putting you all off?

Couple of thousand off a £17k car is hardly a massive deal. Its also not a car that'd massive appeal to most people

thats slower than my VW Passat estate both 0-62 and top end .... would have expected more particularly as the combined fuel consumption is almost identical to my car as well !

its a Renault ................ Enough said really ................

Lack of appeal is no reason at all to vote cold.

Good price but french so will fall apart in a week....lol

I will never buy a French car again. Once bitten, twice shy.....

Something for the chavs on the local estate to dream about, but cold from me.

Cold from me. My girlfriend recently placed 3 seperate orders for Renault cars through Broadspeed, and they came back with a significantly higher price twice, and refused to deal on a third. I personally feel that trading standards should look at their claims on price. They often charge for non-metalic paint when it should be free, and from our experience customer service was poor. It's a shame really because they advertise significantly cheaper than anywhere else.

Haven't voted either way, but having had a renault for the past 3 years am now glad that I have switched to a skoda = faster, quieter, comfier, roomier, much better mpg and more reliable.

Good to know, thanks.

Having owned a Clio 172 I can honestly say I am certain this car will be brilliant to drive, handle amazingly and be very comfortable with good levels of standard kit.

I can also GUARANTEE this car will be awful to own.....a pack of untrained chimps could build a better car than Renault. My 172 had a new gearbox and clutch at 1500 mils and a host of other faults throughout my 32,000 ownership experience. My wife had a Scenic and that also was a 'friday afternoon' car. PLEASE just be told, don't buy a French car.....ever.

Got to agree on French cars, my Dad had a K reg 19 and it was great. A megane and 3 scenics have been awful. Generally they go wrong in some undetermined way and they randomly replace expensive parts until they've worked out. When my Dad sold his Megane he had to sell it back to the dealer as he couldn't in good concience sell it to a private buyer knowing there was something fundamentally wrong with it.

Better off to pick up a 2nd golf GTI DSG for 5k less. Quicker, more relible and you will be able to sell it on. Seems like a sizeable discount on what is an awful product so i will abstain from casting a vote.

Seeing as this thread is full of useful comments from people who own or have even driven a Clio 200, let me be the first as I own one myself.

These are fantastic cars and get amazing reviews. This is the cup model which has a basic interior but as a consequence is lighter. The interior is pretty ropey in the cup model, you miss air con, a fully adjustable steering wheel and it has cheaper plastics. You do get the fantastic cup pack as standard which gives you red brembo brakes and firmer suspension with a quicker steering rack. I went for the full fat model with the optional cup pack which gives you far more toys but is slightly heavier.

I suggest anyone seriously considering this deal to watch a few of the reviews on youtube and in Evo etc. The Clio 200 will also be appearing on the next series of Top Gear as well in a 3 way shootout. Might be an idea to do the research yourself instead of listening to the negative idiots who once owned a French car that got a puncture 25 years ago.

Nope, my reviews of Renaults are based on about a 15 year owning history of which includes a month old Scenic.

Nobody is disputing the car is no doubt fun to drive and a decent spec, just questioning the reliability of them generally.

Your review is basically "the car is cool with chavboy wheels, get one now" and doesn't do anything to refute claims of unreliability, the phrase you were looking for is "had my car 14 years and its never broken down once"

However I imagine your car has been to the dealer as many times as anyone elses

Then if you have owned Renaults over a 15 year period they can't all be bad to stop you going back for more

No, my comments never mentioned the wheels. I mentioned the suspension set-up as the handling is one of the main selling points of this car. May I point your attention to this youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ae4RqTW5UDU

Wrong again. For your information, my car hasn't been back to the dealers once in 6 months. It's been perfect without a single issue.

Nope in my Dads eyes they lived off the Renault 19 experience he had and then my Mum was disabled and found the Scenic easy to get into to, so they stuck with them. Its a mobility car so the reliability isn't a massive issue.

As said before, no doubt a fast car that looks good on youtube, its the long term reliability you should worry about

Have any of you actually owned a renault sport car?! i have had a megane rs and twingo rs both were jaw dropping in the performance and handling department, i also never had a single issue with them except for the mpg in the r26!! but then they are performance cars so you cannot compare them to the standard cars - get it straght people for gods sake!!!l.

So your opinion is based solely off the experience of a few standard French cars in 15 years? You can't compare them these cars and haven't once commented on the cars themselves only the experience of the dealers you bought the car from or used for servicing and repairs. These are very different things.

I have owned the following French cars:

- 2000/W Renault Megane Coupe
- 2003/52 Renault Clio 172 Cup
- 2002/52 Renault Clio 172
- 2010/60 Renault Clio 200

Other than a fault window motor in the megane and an electrical issue stopping the lights working correctly in the 172, I haven't had any problems whatsoever.

No, I buy the car for it's performance rather than how reliable it will be in 3 years when I'll no longer own the car any more.
