Car boasts new LED fog lights which are designed to resemble a chequered flag.

Renault has announced a series of updates to the Clio RS.

Set to go on sale this fall, the updated model has a host of minor changes including restyled 18-inch alloy wheels and new LED fog lights which are designed to resemble a chequered flag.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 200 horsepower.  It is connected to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission which can be controlled via steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Speaking of performance, the car can be equipped with a sport chassis that emphasizes "versatility and everyday use" or a Cup chassis which delivers a sportier driving experience.

Buyers looking for something more extreme will want to check out the new Trophy variant which has an upgrade engine that produces 220 hp.  The engine enables the car to accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour in 6.6 seconds before hitting a top speed of 146 mph.

Besides the upgraded engine, the Trophy has a sportier suspension which reduces the ride height by 20 millimeters up front and 10mm out back.  Customers can also order a unique exhaust system developed in cooperation with Akrapovič.

Besides introducing the new Clio RS, Renault announced plans to offer a GT Line package for the standard model.  The package adds a sportier front bumper, Dark Metal accents, a chromed exhaust tip, and unique 16- or 17-inch alloy wheels.
