2012 Paris: Renault Clio Estate

Renault Clio Estate 1 at 2012 Paris: Renault Clio Estate

The new Renault Clio 4 showcases the brand’s new design language through its different variants such as the hatchback, the RS, and now the Estate. The Clio Estate, revealed at the Paris Motor Show, is particularly interesting because it shows this new design identity of Renault can even make cool looking wagon cars.

The funky estate has the same wheelbase as the hatchback, but it is 201 mm longer. That means the rear overhang is now 823 mm, and that means you get more luggage space.The car offers 443 dm3 VDA luggage area, which is 130 dm3, or 30 percent bigger than that of the hatchback Clio.

Despite being long and kinda box-like, the Clio estate manages to be an eye-catcher. Just like the hatchback the rear door handles are concealed, and it has the same swagger all over its body. The profile features a long bonnet and pronounced rear shoulders, while its lines stretch rearwards towards to an upright tailgate that points to the car’s high carrying capacity.

Going on sale in 2013, the Clio Estate benefits from the same range of engines as the hatchback, including three new units;  TCe 90 Stop&Start (0.9-litre three-cylinder petrol turbo – 65.7 mpg and 99 g/km), 1.2 TCe 120 EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) and 1.5 dCi 90 Stop&Start offering 88.3 mpg and 83 g/km CO2emissions.
