Best Renault Cars for new drivers

Renault ClioPassing your driving test is only the first step to finding your freedom on the road. Deciding what model to buy for your first car isn’t always the easiest decision to make. With a wide range of nearly new cars to choose from, Renault take the stress out of finding your perfect first car.

Whether you’re looking to go fully electric or are looking for something with plenty of space, Renault has it all. And what’s more, you can make your money go further thanks to low insurance costs and improved fuel efficiencies.

Renault Clio

the Renault Clio is no ordinary subcompact car Designed to make you stand out from the crowd, the Renault Clio is no ordinary subcompact car. Its exhilarating exterior and sophisticated interior tease the extraordinary drive that comes with the Clio. Choose from five engines, all of which offer an outstanding performance. The turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol engine with 118bhp gives you a nippy drive, letting you take those tight bends with little effort. With emissions as low as 82g/km of CO2, the Clio is a cost-effective option for first-time drivers. Costing as little as £125 in the first year in road tax, there’s no reason not to choose the Clio.

 

Renault Twizy

The Twizy is unlike any other vehicle on the road. A two-seater quadricycle designed to run purely on electricity, the Twizy produces zero emissions and saves you money on fuel. With three models to choose from – Expression, Dynamique and Cargo – you can benefit from a range of extras, including a choice of 14 colours, alloy wheels and even the ability to transform the rear passenger space into a storage area.

Only 2.3 metres long and 1.2 metres wide, and with the ability to recharge in 3.5 hours, the Twizy might just be the coolest electric car yet. Although it can’t reach 60mph, it doesn’t need to. With a 0-30mph time of just 4.4 seconds, the Twizy can easily keep up with traffic. If that’s not enough, parking won’t be an issue as the Twizy can be parked nose-on kerb, fitting in the tightest of spaces.

Renault ZOE

Voted best electric car (less than £20,000) of the year 2018 by What Car?, the Renault ZOE was Europe’s number one selling electric vehicle last year. Featuring an improved performance and available in a choice of colours, the ZOE is designed to fit in with your lifestyle.

It may be fully electric, but the ZOE is fast. Achieving a top speed of up to 84mph, you can whizz through towns and cities with ease. Flexible and cost-effective, this nippy subcompact car has a maximum range of 250 miles. It costs around 2p per mile to run, with a full charge costing approximately £3. With over 3,000 charging points across the UK, the ZOE is a great choice for a first-time car buyer.

Renault Twingo

Made for the city, the Renault Twingo isn’t quite like other cars of its kind. It may look compact on the outside, but on the inside, the Twingo can carry loads of up to 2.31m – not bad for such a small car. The flat boot has been designed so that you can make the most of its full capacity.

Offering a choice of three engines, the Twingo is nippier than most cars in its class. With a top speed of up to 94mph, it makes light work of long winding roads. Emitting less CO2 than most of its rivals, the Twingo is much cheaper to tax and run in the long-term. Starting from £10,000, this city car truly is an affordable car made for first-time drivers.

The verdict

Offering everything from nippy electric vehicles to trendy city cars, Renault is a great place to start looking for your first car. Affordable, stylish and cost-effective to run, what more could you want? Buying a Renault for your first car means that you’re in good hands.
