The Clio is one of the most iconic models in the Renault line up and the fifth generation has finally arrived in South Africa.

 

The new Clio is instantly distinguished by a completely renewed modern design, which is undeniably striking. Inside an elevated cockpit experience offers next level comfort and convenience.

 

Hey good looking

The new Clio exudes dynamic and attractive styling highlighted by sensual lines, a dynamic profile, sculpted sides and an assertive presence. Sculpted side panels are extended to the front wings and the roof has been lowered for a perfect body to glass surface ratio, giving the impression of a coupe like design.

 

Modernity and robustness are combined with a broader radiator, raised radiator grille, C-shaped LED daytime running lights and headlights. Updated rear styling ensures a more imposing look, with larger LED lights built into the tailgate.

 

Inside story

The driver focussed cockpit features high quality, soft touch materials and a variety of functional features.

 

A high tech experience is guaranteed thanks to a customisable seven-inch TFT digital cluster, electronic parking Brake and a prominent 9.3-inch Easy Link Multimedia touchscreen (optional as part of the Intens Option Pack). The infotainment system perfectly integrates with the Renault Connect Universe while the Easy Link system, compatible with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, mirrors all smart phone functions. The audio system with six speakers adds to the comfort of the drive.

 

Under the bonnet

The new Clio is exclusively fitted with an all-new 1.0-litre TCe petrol engine. This three-cylinder turbo unit offers 74kW and 160Nm, but its peppy nature ensures that the driving experience is akin to that of a more powerful package. Renault claims that the Clio will use just 5.7 litres per 100km on the combined cycle.

 

Five-star safety

The Clio has always offered drivers and passengers the highest levels of safety and the latest generation continues that tradition. A five-star Euro NCAP rating was achieved thanks to an impressive array of active and passive safety systems. These include Lane Departure Warning, Renault LED Pure Vision Headlights, Parking Sensors, Electronic Stability Control, ABS with EBD and EBA. A total of six airbags, including front, side and curtain airbags, whiplash headrests and Isofix seat anchors all contribute to stringent levels of safety.

 

Model range and pricing

The new Renault Clio model range is sold with a five year/150 000km warranty and a two-year/30 000km service plan.
