One of the most popular small car in Europe is now ready to receive some fresh updates. The current Renault Clio, introduced on the market in 2012, is now receiving important details in its middlife facelift.

Even if you have to be a true specialist to notice the chanes in terms of design, they do exist. Thanks to a full-LED lighting signature, including C-shaped daytime running lights in the case of certain versions, the car looks new. At the front, the grille which houses the Renault diamond has been redesigned, as has the lower part of the grille which is wider. At the rear, the skirt has been redesigned also.

Four new body colours have been added (Intense Red, Titanium Grey, Pearlescent White and Iron Blue), with a selection of new wheel and wheel trim designs, plus a more extensive personalisation programme.

Inside the car, all the upholsteries are new and special attention has been paid to the tactile and visual quality of the plastics’ grain-effect finish. The chrome trim features a more subdued, matt finish and the colours are more refined.

The 1.5 dCi 110 diesel engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox is a new addition to the new Clio’s powertrain catalogue, as is the availability of six-speed manual transmission for the TCe 120 petrol engine. A configuration introduced last week also on Captur. As a result, the new Clio has a choice of 11 engine/transmission combinations.

To provide customers with a range of options, the new Clio comes with three different connected multimedia systems, namely Media Nav Evolution, Renault R-Link Evolution and the new R&Go system which is available for all equipment levels.

The new CLIO is the first B-segment Renault to be available with Bose quality sound , while a suite of driving aids makes the new car even more easy to drive. In addition to its rear parking sensor, and depending on the version, the new Clio offers a front parking sensor and a reversing camera. Available for higher-end versions, Easy Park Assist allows the driver to delegate the completion of parking manoeuvres.
