“New Clio is set to make a real mark. In addition to an
unprecedented package of innovations, its design marks a major shift
from that of previous models.” Carlos Tavares (Chief Operating
New Renault Clio, an incarnation of the brand’s new styling
New Renault Clio is the first production model to give full expression to the Renault design renaissance inspired by Laurens van den Acker, Senior Vice-President, Corporate Design. The promise was to take the style and emotion of the brand’s latest concept cars and carry them over to production models. Renault’s new supermini fulfils that promise.
“New Renault Clio was conceived as a piece of sensuous sculpture which stimulates desire. Like muscles, its curves express the dynamism radiated by the DeZir concept car. No acute or aggressive angles, just voluptuous curves that make you want to go up to it and caress it.” Laurens van den Acker (Senior Vice President, Corporate Design)
Balanced, dynamic exterior proportions
New Clio stands out through its front-end design which features a prominent Renault logo, set bold and upright to a gloss black background, an arrangement first seen on the DeZir concept car. This frontal treatment is further emphasised by the headlights – the lower edge of which is picked out in chrome – and LED daytime running lights. Offered only in five-door form, New Clio has a sporty silhouette, accentuated by integrated rear door handles concealed close to the rear quarter lights. In comparison with its predecessor, it packs extra dynamism and personality thanks to a lower ride height, wider tracks, wheels pushed out wide within the arches, and a reduction in the gap between the wheels and wheel arches. From launch, New Clio will be offered in a choice of eight body colours, including the launch colour which is derived from the red used for
A fresh, welcoming, occupant-friendly cabin
Safe, protective and refreshing, the interior of New Renault Clio
perfectly complements the exterior style to inspire confidence and
energy. Comfort goes hand-in-hand with a modern feel and
user-friendliness thanks to the dashboard sculpted in the shape of
an aircraft wing, the optimally-positioned multimedia system on the
centre console, a wide range of colour options, a digital
speedometer, comfortable seats and chrome and gloss-black trim
Broadest-ever personalisation programme & long list of affordable options
Exterior and interior personalisation was dialled into New Renault
Clio’s design process at the outset. From launch, buyers will be
able to personalise the outside of their car with a selection of
colour touches to the front grille, rear and side door inserts. To
personalise the interior, the menu covers the dashboard, door
panels, steering wheel, grab handles, gear lever and air vent
surrounds, upholstery materials and optional floor mats. Thanks to
attractively-priced option packs, buyers are able to choose the look
and feel they prefer.
New Renault Clio: packed with innovations
When it comes to innovation, Renault’s new supermini retains
Clio’s tradition of redefining expectations within its class and
raising the standards for small cars.
Renault R-Link – an integrated tablet connected to the car and
Having been first with notable innovations such as steering
wheel-mounted radio controls (1982, R11 Electronic) and in-car
navigation (1994, Safrane), after bringing keyless entry to the
volume market (in 2001) and GPS navigation with a high-resolution
screen (Carminat TomTom® priced at £450 for Clio in 2009), and
having launched on-board connected navigation in the shape of
Carminat TomTom® LIVE for Clio, Renault continues its stream of
innovations with Renault R-Link.
Available as standard from Dynamique upwards for New Clio, Renault
R-Link provides a bridge between the car and the connected world
outside thanks to:
- A wide seven-inch (18cm) touchscreen, intuitive voice commands
and, as a market first, a home page that can be personalised by the
user for safe and simple access to essential functions, without the
driver having to take his or her eyes off the road.
- TomTom® connected navigation includes Live services and boasts
the market’s best real-time traffic information, helping to
minimise journey times and fuel consumption.
- Among other benefits, a connection with the car’s own electronic
systems permits access to an advanced eco-driving function (Driving
eco²) which analyses the driver’s behaviour and provides advice
to help reduce fuel consumption.
- Thanks to the Renault R-Link Store, the automobile world’s first
ever Application Store, users can easily view or download a
comprehensive and varied range of apps from their car or computer
(via ‘My Renault’).
The scope of Renault R-Link’s connected functions will continue to
expand thanks to ‘Paris Incubateurs’ (a Paris-based hot-house
for young talent) and to an appeal extended to start-ups at the
LeWeb’11 show. Over and above the services provided by TomTom®
LIVE and the COYOTE app, which alerts the driver to dangerous
situations (in countries where this feature is available), R-Link
users can also check their messages, for example, manage their
diary, locate the nearest service station or place to park, or send
One Renault R-Link app – Renault R-Sound Effect – enables the
audio experience inside New Clio to be personalised by immersing the
cabin in a specific sound environment. It can simulate six different
engine sound profiles, each with a specific, attractive signature
and perfectly synchronised with driving parameters such as speed and
A world first: Bluetooth® radios with the Renault Bass Reflex system
All versions of New Clio are available with a clever sound system
integrated into the front doors’ loudspeakers. Known as Renault
Bass Reflex, this system delivers the volume and listening enjoyment
of a 30-litre home speaker system. Bass frequencies are more
powerful and the threshold of saturation and distortion is pushed
The entire New Clio range features Bluetooth®-equipped radios for
hands-free telephone operation and audio streaming from portable
music players with excellent sound quality. All radios incorporate
USB and jack sockets.
New Renault Clio: a pleasure to drive, and targeting number one
status for fuel economy and low CO2 emissions
New Renault Clio combines low fuel consumption with driving pleasure
thanks to a significantly updated range of petrol and diesel
engines. The two petrol engines (Energy TCe 90 and TCe 120) combine
very low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions with responsive
performance and mid-range acceleration. The significantly improved
new-generation Energy dCi engines bestow New Clio with
record-breaking fuel economy for the same driving pleasure.
Two new Energy engines: advanced technology for everyday motoring
New Energy TCe 90 petrol engine
New Clio is the first Renault model to feature the new three-cylinder petrol turbocharged Energy TCe 90 engine. This is the first three-cylinder powerplant ever produced by Renault and, from launch, will provide a remarkable balance between driving pleasure and fuel economy:
- This three-cylinder, turbocharged 899cc unit comes with Stop&Start and delivers the performance of a normally-aspirated 1.4-litre
- An ultra low-inertia turbo for satisfying response from low engine speeds: 90hp and 135Nm at 2,000rpm (90 per cent of peak torque available from 1,650rpm to 5,000rpm),
- An economy-optimised version with taller gear ratios and fuel consumption of 65.7 mpg, equivalent to CO2 emissions of 99g/km ,
- A 21 per cent fuel consumption and CO2 emissions savingc compared to the TCe 100 it replaces
New diesel Energy dCi 90
The latest addition to the Energy family is a new 90hp version of the
1.5 dCi, equipped with Stop&Start:
- A four-cylinder 1.5-litre engine with 220Nm of torque available
from 1,750rpm, an increase of 20Nm over the current dCi 85,
- An economy-optimised version with taller gear ratios which also
qualifies for the Renault eco2 signature with fuel consumption of 88
mpg, equivalent to CO2 emissions 83g/kmc.
New TCe 120, paired with six-speed EDC automatic transmission
New Clio will be available with the new, dynamic TCe 120 engine mated
to six-speed EDC transmission (Efficient Dual Clutch), a first for
Renault in the B segment:
- A four-cylinder 1.2-litre engine with the performance of a
normally-aspirated 1.6 engine,
- Direct fuel injection and turbocharging for peak power of 120hp and
190Nm of torque from 1,750rpm.
This engine is currently in the process of being homologated and will
become available in the first half of 2013. It will be among the most
powerful, yet most economical, engines in its class.
Along with the availability of EDC dual clutch transmission for the
dCi 90 engine in the first half of 2013, New Clio will mark a further
step in expanding access to the driving pleasure and seamless
gearshifts delivered by this responsive and frugal automatic
Systems designed to promote economical driving
Over and above these engineering features, New Clio offers drivers an
integrated suite of efficient solutions to help them reduce their
fuel consumption and CO2 emissions:
- An ECO mode allows drivers to reduce fuel consumption by as much as
10 percent by modifying the car’s performance parameters at the
push of a button.
- A driving style monitor (green, yellow or orange) and a Gear Change
Indicator (GCI) on the dashboardd help drivers improve their driving
style to reduce their fuel consumption.
- The Driving eco² app available through Renault R-Link provides
drivers with a full suite of information, enabling them to analyse
their driving style and take corrective measures in order to reduce
their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
New Renault Clio: a pledge of quality and safety
Manufactured in Flins (France) and Bursa (Turkey), New Renault Clio
is built to Renault’s exacting quality standards. It is an
affordable model that sets high standards in quality, with nothing to
fear from larger or more expensive models. New Clio is built on a new
version of the Alliance’s B platform which has been optimised for
outstanding comfort, manoeuvrability and low noise levels.
Safety runs in the family: in 2005, Clio III became the first
B-segment model to achieve a five star EuroNCAP crash test rating.
Thanks to the comprehensive list of safety features it offers, New
Clio, too, seeks to deliver the highest level of safety.
Further details of New Renault Clio will be provided at the
international media road tests in September and at the Paris Motor
