    I had a 2016 Clio Dynamique S .9 Turbo 90bho, they are a fantastic car and reliable.

    Mine was the top of the range with the 0.9 turbo (90bhp) engine that actually had more power than the 1.2 non turbo (70bhp). The 1.2 is sometimes criticised as being too slow for over taking etc. I think the .9 is cheaper to insure too.

    The one you linked is a base spec one. I would pick the below Clio over the one you linked for similar money with the .9 tce engine.

    Thanks. Any major difference between these 2 variants?

    On the uk versions anyway, this is the difference between the Dynamique and Dynamique S

    Climate control
    Rear parking sensors
    17-inch alloy wheels
    Electric front and rear windows
    Front armrest
    60:40 split-folding rear seats
    Chrome window surrounds
    Electric folding door mirrors

    You could buy a brand new Dacia Sandero for similar money to the 18 Clio , and its a new model Clio underneath, getting rave reviews on the YouTube motoring reviews.

    They sold the last model here, but I’ve never seen a current model estate.

    Nope they never sold that estate model here. No idea why it was a good looking estate.

    Never for some reason, they are relatively common in spain , france and continent. I would imagine they would do alright here sales wise, their megane tourer certainly seems to shift decent numbers.

    They offered the previous generation here new as an estate and it sold like hot cakes made of dog sh!t, I assumed they learned their lesson.

    Later versions were much nicer styling but the market had moved on.

    Then again, they currently offer the practical and good looking Renault Scenic yet people flock to the frumpy, ugly (imo) less practical Kadjar. I never understand why the current Scenic hasn't sold well.

    The scenic is practical , but the high roof line just gives it the people carrier (Bus) vibe vs the estates or the MPV
