Renault has officially unveiled the 2016 Clio RS facelift. The model is available with a choice of two petrol engines (200hp and 220hp) on the Trophy version, mated to six-speed EDC dual-clutch automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifts.

On the exterior side, the 2016 Renault Clio RS facelift comes with a modified front spoiler, new headlights and the new special RS Vision (LED multi-faceted lighting in the form of a chequered flag). Also we have seen special wheels, new side sills, a unique air diffusers, two exhaust pipes and a discreet spoiler mounted on the top. 

The 2016 Renault Clio RS facelift is available with two different power engine and with three chassis set-up. The options are a Sport chassis, a special Cup chassis and a Trophy chassis. The latter one is lowered by 20mm at the front and 10mm at the rear to place the focus firmly on driving pleasure. 

Another important fact is that the Trophy version has an Akrapovic exhaust system, just like the Clio RS 16 concept car. 

“We are working with renowned suppliers committed to motorsport such as Akrapovic to forge ever stronger links between the track and the road”, said Patrice Ratti.

The new 2016 Renault Clio RS Trophy can run from stand still to 100 km/h in 6.6 seconds, and has Launch Control. More than that, the French model also integrates the R.S. Drive system which enables a choice of three driving modes (Normal, Sport and Race), the R.S. Monitor application and hydraulic compression bump stops developed by Renault Sport for rallying.
