French cars vs Japanese? No contest. Japan!


You live in a pretty part of the world and a good car can help you enjoy this. The Clio's been around a long time and it's a pretty good car. Well maintained, this can be a reliable and fun car for you. The Yaris, is of course a Toyota and Toyotas are near bullet-proof. But the Yaris doesn't seem as sporty & comfortable as the Renault. It's really a toss-up. An impressive little Clio that might not be as reliable, or the Yaris with a Toyota reputation. Tough decision.
