The French automobile manufacturer, Renault, has announced updates on Renault Clio, its flagship supermini car. Apparently, the fourth-generation car is among the top-selling cars in Europe. Renault incorporated a number of changes -- including new power train options and interior upgrades.
Doubtlessly, the updates have changed how Renault Clio looks. Now with new LED lights, a broader grille, and a restyled back bumper, the car will definitely be more appealing to many. In addition, the car maker introduced new paint colors: Mars Red, Titanium Grey, Arctic White, and Iron Blue.
The interior of the car has also received a face lift. Renault Clio now has higher-quality materials -- like a matte finish on the chrome trim. The facelift has revived the car’s look making, it come across as much more chic. Additionally, Renault has left nothing to chance regarding the car’s soundscape. A new BOSE sound system has been installed. Not only that, there are three multimedia systems. However, which system a buyer receives, will depend on the trim level.
On matters safety, the automaker has pulled a big surprise. There are parking sensors fitted all around the car, plus a reversing camera. This is supposed to ward off theft and other threats to the car by ensuring that you are aware of anything around it. Additionally, the hands-free parking feature ensures smooth and automatic parking.
Of the engine, Clio now boasts a 1.5-litre dCi diesel engine and a 1.2-litre TCe petrol engine both with 108bhp and 118bhp respectively. Additionally, they work by means of a six-speed manual gearbox. Even though specifics about the updated RS version are not currently available, there is no doubt the engines link up with the entry-level 0.9-litre petrol.
Finally, Renault is expected to focus more on a 1.6-litre turbo and dual-clutch automatic gearbox, as opposed to the 2.0-litre four-cylinder in the RS version. The car is set to hit the showrooms in two months’ time. All orders will be honored a month later.
