Pricewatch: MINI Cooper S v Clio Renaultsport 197

THESE two hot hatchbacks have enjoyed great success among user-choosers over the past few years thanks to their combination of affordable tax bills, a great driving experience and strong image. Fleet managers like them too, as they both offer strong residual values. Now there are two all-new versions. the MINI is an all-new car and features a turbocharged 1.6-litre engine offering 170bhp, while the Clio offers 200bhp from its naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre engine.
