Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 36 - 70 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Renault Clio Sport Tourer running costs should be low. The frugal 105bhp 1.5-litre diesel engine returns around 64mpg. In fact, all models but the automatic 1.6-litre, are pleasingly prudent. Insurance costs ought to be affordable and inline with the Clio hatchback, while road tax is low thanks to the Clio’s green credentials.

Renault Clio Sport Tourer emissions are acceptable and it's fair to say it performs well on the green front. There are a good number of engines with low emissions to choose from. Eco-conscious buyers would be wise to consider the lower-powered 1.5-litre diesel, which emits less than 120 g/kmCO2. The petrol 1.6 has the highest emissions.

Historically this is an area where the French car maker has struggled, so expect Renault Clio Sport Tourer reliability to be questionable. Not any more says the French firm insisting it has finally turned the corner for poor reliability. Unfortunately for Renault customer satisfaction surveys like the most recent 2009 JD Power investigation into haven’t yet noted a vast improvement.

The Clio ranked in a very disappointing 83rd (out of 100) for satisfaction with owners reporting niggling faults with the car’s stereo and interior.
