Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The cabin has a sporty feel to it. There are plenty of Renaultsport badges reminding that you are in a hot hatch, while the steering wheel has a leather trim and red stitching denoting the top of the steering wheel. The plastics are of a better quality than the previous generation and the cabin is driver-focused with the switchgear angled towards the driver.

Renault Clio Renaultsport comfort levels are probably the best that a Renaultsport model has ever had. Road and tyre noise are minimal, however wind noise can be intrusive at times. Up front the seats are fairly well bolstered while the side supports on the sports seat keep you in pace when cornering enthusiastically. There is a decent amount of head- and legroom and you could squeeze two adults in the rear.
