CLIO III STEALS HEARTS

It's no secret that women aren't as, how do I put this, experienced in all the ins and outs of cars. For us girls, a car is simply a means to an end; the item needed to get us safely to that summer sale or first date. We know if a car looks good or not, and we can definitely vouch for how much boot space there is by how many shopping bags we can fit in the back after a mad spree. But ladies, times they are changing, and women are definitely becoming better acquainted with all things auto related, and we for one couldn't be happier. If you don't know it by now, I am a very brand loyal kind of gal. If it treats me right, makes me feel like a princess, and reaffirms my purchase in the first place, well then I'll just keep wanting more. That's precisely how I feel about the new Renault Clio III for the year 2012. 

 

As a dedicated Clio driver, I was giddy with excitement at the thought of a brand new model to be launched. Not only is the Clio a super sexy and stylish car for any driver,and especially one for the ladies, but it's THE only make of car I have ever driven, and I've had my license for almost 10 years.  A Clio makes me feel safe and secure when driving. It doesn't feel like some other cars, where there's a sensation of only being protected by a thin slither of tin. It's solid finishes and divine extra's make it a dream for anyone to drive, and we're going to tell you why.

 

 

 


 

Rave Review was given a Renault Clio Yahoo for a whole week to play with. The first thing we noticed about the new Clio is that besides looking super sleek and sexy, technology comes front and centre in every aspect of this new range. A divine Parrot Bluetooth system comes STANDARD and even spreads its wings and shines with the latest TomTom LIVE integrated navigation system on the top of the range Clio 1.6 Avantage. 

 

The Clio III Yahoo went like a dream. Completely smooth sailing, and not one little bump! The clutch was so light that I almost forgot I was driving a manual car - a huge plus in my book. The bonnet of the new Clio also appears to be a little higher, and it's definitely a much bigger 'little' car than the models before it. But all this lends to it's charm and drivability on the road. We loved it. 


 


 

Other standard freebies added on the new Clio III range include air-conditioning, cruise control, a multi-function computer, remote central locking, electrically powered front windows, electrically operated mirrors, and a split folding rear seat. We also adored the new additions to the audio capabilities on the car, because let's face it, every girl needs her iPod on a drive of any kind. The Clio Yahoo! incorporates an MP3-compatible CD receiver, linked to an RCA auxiliary connection and fingertip remote audio controls on the steering wheel for absolute convenience. Another thing we have to mention, because let's face it, we're women; the white interior door handles and vents are simply sublime! Very glamourous, and the front seats don't get left out, they're also embroidered with an eye-catching Yahoo! custom design. Super gorgeous.

 

When it comes to upkeep, and maintenance, the Clio offers the driver an extended four-year/60 000 km service plan, backed up by an industry-leading five-year/150 000 km warranty. Kudo's to Renault for truly thinking of everything. 

 

The Renault Clio III is definitely a winner in our books. It's snazzy, zippy and most importantly, makes a statement, a big statement. And just like a first crush, we can hear the hearts of women everywhere beating just a little faster. The Clio III has stolen the hearts of Rave Review for sure.
