TV presenter Mike Brewer has praised the qualities of the Renault Clio which has just won the Best Supermini category in the Auto Express Best Used Cars 2008 awards.
Brewer, a former used car dealer who has presented Channel Four’s Driven as well as Deals on Wheels, said: "The Renault is fine looking with a great image and fun-handling.
"While the Honda Jazz is a good all-rounder, the Clio is more desirable – particularly with younger drivers.
His fellow judges on the Auto Express panel agreed, meaning that the Clio saw off competition from the likes of Ford Fiesta and Fiat Grande Punto thanks to its wide range of engine choices, low running costs, stylish, appealing good looks and fuel economy.
Auto Express commented: If you want style and a great driving experience without compromising on either economy or safety, then the Clio is for you."
The Clio has only been on sale for three years and, like other Renault products, has an impressive residual value.
