Renault is on a bit of roll these days, putting out hot new cars one after another without catching a breather. So a few days after giving us the hot little Twingo GT they have now come up with a new and more exciting version of the Renault Clio with cool new looks and some very interesting features.
The 2017 Renault Clio boasts only a facelift rather than a major makeover, but the new stuff align the car with the firm’s latest corporate look what with the full-LED lighting signature, including C-shaped daytime running lights, the signature grille, and a very prominent Renault diamond. Overall, the new Clio looks more fun and exciting, a fact reflected in the new colors offered for it, including Mars Red, Titanium Grey, Arctic White and Iron Blue.
Interior has never been the strongpoint of any French car, which means you should not enter the new Renault Clio with high expectations. That said, the car maker has done some really good things here to give the cabin an air of quality and premiumness, like adding new upholstery designs, grain-effect finish for the plastics, and matte finish for the chrome trims. Then we have the premium equipment not usually seen in this segment, such as three top-notch infotainment systems to choose from, BOSE audio system, and Handsfree Parking.
As for the powertrains, new is a fuel-efficient 1.5 dCi 110 diesel engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, and you can now have the six-speed manual transmission for the TCe 120 petrol engine. We would just wait for the RS version. But whatever engine or trim level you go for, what you get in spades with the new 2017 Renault Clio is a ton and a bit of top-shelf Euro chic.
