NEW styling, an even more versatile interior and increased equipment levels make the new Zafira a hard act to beat. Its predecessor was the best-selling mini-MPV and there is no reason to think this version will not be just as popular. A lower seating position and repositioned gearlever improve the driving feel, too. The current engines are carried over and there’s a hot 237bhp VXR version coming in September.
BIGGER and more roomy inside than the car it replaces, the Clio III goes on sale in the UK in September as a three or five-door hatchback and with a range of Euro IV-compliant petrol and diesel engines. With sharper looks and more technology, the new Clio looks set to continue the model’s success. And, as it is a Renault, it has already been awarded five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test programme.
