If the name of the special edition rings a bell, that’s because some Mercedes-Benz models have received an “Edition 1” during their first 12 months of production. Renault isn’t saying for how long it will offer the Clio Edition One, but we do know it will be available for both the hatchback and estate body styles.
It is obviously based on the recently facelifted Clio and comes as standard with full LED headlights and 17-inch black diamond-cut alloys. Buyers get to pick from five exterior colors, including pearlescent white which will be exclusive to the Edition One. Dark-tinted rear windows, special roof decals, and different side mirror caps are also part of the package to spice things up.
Stepping inside the cabin, the Clio Edition One features a six-speaker Bose sound system that also comes along with a subwoofer for extra bass. Depending on the body’s color, the interior will have a matching trim and all cars will receive a full-grain leather steering wheel as well as an aluminum pedal set for a dash of sportiness.
Customers can choose from TCe 90 and TCe 120 turbocharged gasoline engines and dCi 90, dCi 110 diesels. Both gasoline engines are connected to a manual gearbox, but the beefier one can be optionally linked to a dual-clutch, automatic transmission which is also available at an additional cost for the weaker diesel.
Renault is already taking order at home in France where it’s asking €19,650 for the hatchback in the TCe 90 manual guise. Go for the more practical estate and you’ll have to pay an extra €600. The most expensive Clio Edition One money can buy is the Energy dCi 90 EDC Estate that begins at €24,250. On top of that, you can spend more on optional kit such as the the R-LINK Evolution infotainment system (€590), sunroof (€200), and City Plus Pack (front sensors and reversing camera) for an extra €350.
That sounds like a lot of money for such a small car, but Renault says the Edition One brings customer savings of €900.
