New Renault Clio: high on emotion London - Arabstoday Taking all its different generations into account, Clio stands out as one of Renault’s best-selling cars, as well as a market benchmark that has generated total sales of almost 12 million since 1990. Today, Renault has capitalised on the model’s hallmark strengths and everyday versatility to deliver New Clio which seeks to win over customers thanks to its attractive blend of emotion and key selling points. New Renault Clio also champions Renault’s new design identity which places the emphasis on simplicity, warmth and sensuality. Thanks to the availability of two systems, including the introduction of Renault R-Link, New Renault Clio breaks new ground in the world of automotive multimedia too. It also delivers a high standard of comfort and safety equipment across the range and features an affordable personalisation programme on an unprecedented scale for Renault. New Clio’s versatility is built upon even more efficient roadholding and enhance travelling comfort, while power is provided by a choice of engines that show the wayforward in terms of low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The range includes the French marque’s latest downsized engine, a new three-cylinder 0.9-litre petrol, plus a diesel powerplant which returns an unbeatable 88.3 mpg and 83g of CO2/km. Meanwhile, New Clio boasts a spacious and comfortable interior, with large and practical boot (300dm3). It is also rigorously designed, targets the highest possible level of active and passive safety (5 stars Euro NCAP new rating) and is built to Renault’s exacting quality standards. Buoyed by the passion of the teams behind its design, New Clio, like its predecessor, continues to pack features that are normally only associated with larger cars and responds to market demands in a rational, yet emotional way. The hatchback version of New Clio will go on sale in October 2012, while Clio Estate (not destined for the UK) and Clio Renaultsport are scheduled to follow in the second quarter of 2013.
