The Clio is one of the UK’s favourite city cars, loved for its appealing design, efficient performance and dynamic drive. 2017 will bring a new and improved Renault Clio to RMB showrooms in Darlington and Northallerton – and you can be one of the first to drive it.
Although the enhanced Renault Clio will be recognisable as the same model, Renault are incorporating a couple of subtle tweaks. The front grille will be more prominent along with the large Renault diamond badge. The lighting will benefit from a full LED makeover, including LED headlights and LED daytime running lights in a signature C-shaped design. Several new exterior paint finishes will be available too, including Iron Blue, Arctic White, Titanium Grey, and Mars Red.
The refinement of the cabin will also show a marked improvement, particularly in the detailing. The upgraded Clio cabin will boast matte effect chrome trim, a new upholstery design and higher quality plastics.
The excellent TCE 120 petrol engine which powers the current model will continue to be available. However, buyers will get a choice of the six-speed automatic transmission it’s currently paired with or a new six-speed manual gearbox. A new 1.5-litre diesel engine will also be available, adding an even more fuel-efficient option.
The Renault Clio already benefits from a spacious and well-appointed cabin and the enhanced model will add premium new features. Buyers will get a choice of three leading infotainment systems: Media Nav Evolution, R-Link Evolution and R&GO. A reversing camera, parking sensors and a hands-free parking system will all be available, along with a BOSE audio system.
