A non-plug-in hybrid like the Clio E-TECH Hybrid is never going to match the lofty fuel-economy and ultra-low CO2 emissions numbers of plug-in hybrid cars, but there aren't really any models in the supermini class using that technology right now. Ranged against equivalent rivals such as the Toyota Yaris and Honda Jazz hybrids, the Clio stacks up pretty well.

Renault Clio E-TECH Hybrid MPG & CO2 emissions

Official fuel economy based on test conditions is pegged at 63 to 64mpg for the Clio hybrid and based on the car's ability to use electric mode frequently in typical urban and suburban driving, we wouldn't be surprised to get quite close to that number in every day motoring – we saw 61mpg during our time with the car.

CO2 emissions vary very slightly depending on the trim level chosen, but sit between 99-100g/km: the cheaper Evolution and Techno models will emit less, while the larger alloy wheels of the R.S. Line and E-TECH Engineered models increase emissions slightly. For both fuel economy and CO2 emissions, the Clio hybrid has slightly inferior numbers to the Yaris but is slightly better than the Honda; the difference is marginal in any case.
