The All-New Renault Clio | Glyn Hopkin Renault

What would Papa say?

Papa and Nicole would hardly recognise the All-New Renault Clio. To say it’s has a few changes since they last saw it would be an understatement.

Since its launch in 1990, the Clio has become Groupe Renault’s best-selling model worldwide.

It has gained a more mature body style, featuring more sculpted lines and a more assertive front end.

On the inside, the “Smart Cockpit” is 100% driver focused. Equipped with the widest screen in its segment, it provides resolutely modern ergonomics for a thoroughly immersive driving experience.

The digital instrument binnacle has been divided into three parts, top panel with foamed coating, a coated and customisable central panel and a lower- area housing functional components such as the glove box.

The steering adds to a more pleasurable driving experience. It has and more elegant and compact design, featuring a thumb-rest and a broader hoop. A satin – chrome finish completes the finish.

The seats in the All-New Clio have also undergone some changes for the better. Better support through a longer seat base and a more enveloping shape to ensure maximum comfort for both driver and passengers alike.

The headlights are now 100% LED, from the entry version and are equipped with the C-Shape light signature that characterises the Renault brand.

A third, longer and thinner brake light is fitted on top of the rear window, for increased security.

The sleek profile of the previous generation, symbolised by the window –mounted rear door has been improved through a number of aesthetic choices. These include chrome-plated window surrounds, gloss black window pillars and rear handles.

The care and detail paid to the body sides boosts the perceived quality of the exterior.

The All-New Renault Clio R.S – Line: A new version inspired by Renault Sport

It’s not just a mere name change. The R.S –Line has been put through its paces to bring it in-line to meet customer’s expectations of differentiation through oh so-dynamic styling. The new label boasts all the key exterior and interior design cues of Renault Sport. It is fitted with the F1 blade, an emblematic design component of R.S models. It also stands apart with its honeycomb grille, special 17-inch wheel trims and a more athletic rear end.

No stone has been left un-turned. ...just don’t tell Papa!!!!!
