The fun-focused hot hatchback from Renault offers the complete package for petrol heads with a conscience. Lively performance and sporty styling do not lose out to fuel efficiency or comfort in the Renault Clio Renaultsport.
The coupé-like silhouette of the Clio Renaultsport is accented by performance-focused design cues. Muscular wheel arches, glossy black alloys and a rear diffuser provide subtle hints as to the power under the bonnet. With an imposing road presence and athletic styling, the Clio Renaultsport is unmistakably distinct from the standard model.
The sporty feel to the Clio Renaultsport continues inside the cabin, with sports seats to support you through the most daring manoeuvres. Stylish red accents on the air vents and gear lever create an environment that reflects the fun driving experience. The whole interior feels robust and durable thanks to the superior materials and excellent build quality. Five people can travel comfortably, with deceptively spacious rear seats and a reasonably sized boot.
The 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine of the Clio Renaultsport is matched with a six-speed semi-automatic gearbox. Gear changes are operated with column-mounted paddle shifters, making changes intuitive and quick. The 200hp produced by the enthusiastic benchmark propels the Clio Renaultsport to achieve the benchmark 0-62mph sprint in just 7.1 seconds. Thanks to the lightweight body and 240Nm of torque, the Clio Renaultsport feels responsive and eager, even more so when you switch from Normal to Sport or Race mode. Sport mode optimises acceleration while Race mode disconnects the traction control and makes gear-shifts entirely manual to put the driver in control. The precise steering and ample grip inspires confident cornering and makes it a lot of fun to drive on the road or the track.
It may feel wild to drive but safety levels in the Clio Renaultsport are incredibly high. In crash tests by Euro NCAP the car was awarded the five-star rating thanks to innovative safety features such as a pressure sensor to detect impending impacts. Technology aimed at delivering a sporty driving experience is abundant, alongside the R-Link multimedia system controlled from a seven-inch touchscreen. The Launch Control is a futuristic feature that gives you exhilarating acceleration off the starting line, while the RS Monitor displays real time data relating to torque, power, turbo pressure and more.
