The Renault Clio is a stylish supermini that wades into battle against rivals including the Ford Fiesta, VW Polo and Peugeot 208. Here are all the key dimensions both inside and out, to save you getting the tape measure out at the dealership.
Renault Clio exterior dimensions
When compared to close rivals such as the Ford Fiesta and VW Polo, the Clio is a little larger. It has a slightly longer and has a small advantage when it comes to the wheelbase too, which means it’s fractionally trickier to park, but has more interior space.
|Width including wing mirrors||1,945mm|
Renault Clio interior dimensions
The Clio is a generously sized car, with good interior space compared to its closest rivals. A higher seating position means headroom in the front is slightly limited and six-footers might be a little cramped in the back.
With two passengers on the rear bench there’s a good amount of shoulder, but three is a bit of squeeze. We don’t have legroom figures but it seems space in the rear isn’t quite as strong as the car’s rivals – possibly given up for a slightly larger boot.
|Shoulder room (front/rear)||1,370mm/1,307mm|
Renault Clio boot space
The Clio fares well when it comes to boot space, with its 300-litre capacity being slightly larger than the Fiesta, Polo and the Toyota Yaris too. However, it does fall 30 litres shy of the Skoda Fabia.
|Boot space (seats up)||300 litres|
|Boot space (seats folded)||1,146 litres|
Renault Clio turning circle and fuel tank
The Clio’s turning circle measures in at 10.6 metres – a good figure for the class – making it easier to park than competitors such as the Ford Fiesta. The car’s 45-litre fuel tank is average for the class and the same as the Polo.
|Turning circle||10.6 metres|
|Fuel tank||45 litres|
