The Renault Clio has been built with Renault's "inspired by passion" philosophy in mind. Bearing the influence of the manufacturer's series of "DeZir" concept cars, the fourth-generation Clio still retains every element of style and passion which has enchanted motorists since the original model was released in 1990, keeping it a youthful and sporty car built with enjoyment in everyday life as its focus. Built to be an object of desire, Renault aims for the Clio to be the epitome of sensuality. Sharp and aggressive angles have been removed, leaving only the pure, sculpted and smooth shape underneath.
Motorists can customise the exterior colours of the Clio, with choices that include Flame Red, French Blue, Inca Yellow and Diamond Black. These are available in solid or metallic paint, depending on preference. Inside, Renault has fitted the Clio with cutting-edge technology for greater convenience and ease. Bluetooth® connectivity, a USB port, as well as the Renault Bass Reflex sound system and fingertip remote controls. More highly specified editions come with such features as the MediaNav onboard computer with a 7" touchscreen and the manufacturer's NavTeq satellite navigation system.
The three engines available to the Clio - comprising 0.9 litre and 1.2 litre petrol engines and a 1.5 litre diesel powertrain - all utilise Renault's Stop/Start and Eco technology to reduce fuel consumption and harmful emissions. The vigour of these engines, combined with the Clio's compact and agile nature, make it more than a match for the challenges of everyday driving. Their impressive economy is another positive, particularly in the case of the common-rail diesel edition, which can achieve a combined fuel consumption of 88.3mpg, and CO2 emissions of just 83g/km.
Safety features include the driver and passenger front, side, head and thorax airbags, which are situated throughout the cabin and work to protect all vehicle occupants at all times. ISOFIX child seat fixing points are available on the front passenger and rear outermost seats, enabling the easy installation of these features if desired.
