The new generation Renault Clio is an interesting looking car so it is only natural that Renault tries to touch on interesting subjects when making commercials for it. This new ad for the car focuses on relationships, probably, and shows a passionate couple connecting together through the car.
We don’t know what to make of it really – maybe the message is that, regardless of the gender, you get laid more often if you buy this car – but the red and black theme that runs through it is pretty cool.
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 powerplant,
- 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 saving compared to the TCe 100 it replaces
