“I can only sing praises about the renault clio sport....”

Written on: 09/10/2009

I can only sing praises about the renault clio sport. Having owned a full fat 182 with cup packs from new (used as a daily driver), I am looking to buy a phase 1 172 for track/fast road usage. Contrary to a previous poster's comment, an induction kit, exhaust and remap will NOT push your clio into the hallowed 200bhp mark. Realistically you require high lift cams, matched inlet manifold, gas flowed manifold plus the aforementioned induction kit, exhaust + decat and remap to achieve this… Read Full Review

“The renault clio sport car is AWESOME. I have owned it...”

Written on: 20/07/2009

The renault clio sport car is AWESOME. I have owned it for 3 years. Its the Phase 2 Clio 172 RS Sport is a rare burgendary RED. The car is a legend. Its lowered on KTEC SPRINGS 45mm with a Straight Through PIPER Exhaust and Induction Kit with remapped ECU- producing just over 200bhp! It does nothing but put a smile on your face. The interior is ok, but its all about being the performance of the vehicle- its under-rated and is serious comptation to other performace hatches and saloons! I would… Read Full Review

Nothing but problems! engine switches off whilst doing high speeds (no reason), wipers dont work, ecu blown twice, brakes pull the car sharply to the left for no reason and this was all within the first week of owning it!… Read Full Review

“ It was just sat there on the forecourt when we...”

Written on: 19/05/2003 by Andi - B. (1 review written)

It was just sat there on the forecourt when we saw the Clio 172. Iceberg Silver in colour with bodykit as standard, knew right there and then we just had to have it. Most people would think that its one of those cars a boy racer would dream about owning and in most cases, they're right. Group 16 Insurance is high for a 18 year old bass thumping tearaway with his blacked out windows in his Vauxhall Nova SRi. But when your 27. You know you can look at one and say
" Nova,Corsa,Saxo Mmmmm… Read Full Review

My mate has one of these, beautiful car. A lot of what you said is quite accurate in my opinion. However the annoying ticking noises etc thats just renault for you. I was torn between a volvo s60 and a clio sport. I bought the volvo. I found the volvo to have better handling due to the traction and more top end hoever the lagging turbo isn't quite as sharp as the lightweight response from the clio.

Malprior's Response to 99439_Andi - B.'s Review

Written on: 25/11/2003

I have had my clio 172 since may 2000.
<br>i live in germany and have put my foot down a few times and have had 155mph showing on the clock. this has highlighted a few niggles,
<br>1. 13 mpg when on full warp speed
<br>2. flimsy front bumper (mine is coming away from the body at the sides.
<br>3. huge turning circle for a small car
<br>4. engine is now getting tired, erratic tickover, sounds like a bucket of bolts when accelerating hard
<br>5. rear shocks gave up the ghost after 20,000 miles
<br>6. brake pads allround after 23,000 miles
<br>7. a lot of rattles from interior
<br>8. poor paint (they must have put on 1 top coat and no laquer, scratches from carefull washing, front end peppered in stone chips which you dont ever see on an audi tt
<br>9. cramped rear seats compared to rivals
<br>still, with all these problems it is hard to let go of this little tearaway. acceleration is awesome and will trouble cars with lots more horsepower ( there is no better feeling than having a bmw m3 up your rear, letting him past and then sitting on his tail at 155mph
<br>i have decided i need more room, so i am getting a skoda rs estate soon.
<br>a message to all you boy racers- dont spend thousands on making your nova etc faster, buy a 2nd hand sport 172. im willing to take 5 grand for mine.
