Affordability, depreciation, practicality – these are the deciding factors for most people for choosing secondhand car sales in Inverness rather than brand new cars.
More people are buying used cars from trusted secondhand car sales in Inverness these days than ever. Gauging the best used car to purchase can be very tricky, since the way cars are driven (or in some cases abused) and maintained can drastically affect both performance and reliability. Beyond that, some models hold value better than others and that can make a significant difference to your bank account if you’re planning to finance a used car for more than a couple of years.
As such, the used car market can be a minefield. We’ve already featured some interesting units found in our car sales garage here in Inverness and this 2020, we are listing some more units you can choose for.
From SUVs to sedans, we list quality cars that can last for years more serving its new owner. And today, we are going to look into another top recommended unit from our list – the Renault Clio DynamiQue M Nav.
Will this sedan be powerful enough for your city driving and weekend out-of-town trips? Will it really be
a cost-effective option? Let’s find out.
Meet the Renault Clio D-Que-M-Nav
As a mid-range model, the Renault Clio Dynamique Nav comes with a decent level of standard equipment. The most obvious additions are outside where the Clio gets kit such as a rear spoiler, front fog lights, and glossy black wing mirrors that mark it out from more basic models, although they don’t make it as eye-catching as the super-quick Renault sport hot hatchback.
This hatchback also gets useful equipment such as keyless entry and start, air conditioning and a height adjustable driver’s seat, as well as Renault’s sat-nav system, with seven-inch touchscreen, and a leather steering wheel.
Fitted with the 900cc turbocharged petrol engine, the Renault Clio is cheaper to buy than a diesel version but offers a reasonable turn of speed and decent fuel economy.
Safety equipment includes things like electronic stability control, ABS and emergency brakes assist.
The Renault Clio may be a small car on the outside, but it feels like a big car on the inside. There is plenty of room for four adults, and it gets suspension that makes it extremely comfortable on the motorway.
All Clios come with five doors, for added practicality, but look like three-door cars thanks to the hidden rear handles.
The Renault Clio Dynamique Nav has sharper looks than more basic models thanks to a rear spoiler and glossy black wing mirrors, while inside there’s useful standard equipment such as sat-nav with a seven-inch touch screen. The Clio does suffer from body lean in the corners, but it is extremely comfortable at motorway speeds.
While the Renault Clio is a decent small hatchback, there’s no hiding the fact that it’s not as fun to drive as the Ford Fiesta. The Fiesta’s EcoBoost engine means it is also faster and more economical than the Clio – and while the Renault is cheaper to buy, the Clio’s basic engines can get quite noisy on the motorway.
The new Clio may be bigger than the car it replaces, but the rear seats can feel quite cramped for headroom – the additional doors do mean that access is excellent, however. Renault also has a flaky reputation for build quality, with electrical problems being a particular bugbear.
The Renault Clio Dynamique Nav is best paired with the small 900cc TCe turbocharged petrol engine, which offers excellent economy, reasonable pace, and is cheaper to buy than the 1.5-litre diesel.
