2008 facelifted Renault Clio spied in French magazine. Major changes in each exterior section, especially the front end.

Face-lifted Clio is set to close its mouth in the upcoming version, according to pics published in French magazine AutoPlus. These spied pictures show differences such as a cooling slit above the license plate, different headlights in both front and rear ends. However, the bumper seems to have survived the surgery and stayed in tact.

Engines stay the same ranging from 70 bhp to 200 bhp for the RenaultSport Clio, as well as going up to 105 bhp for the diesels. It can be bought this year already, and should make its first public appearance at Paris. So what’s the hurry? Peugeot’s 207 is having it all on its own out there. Only 3 and 5 door hatches, and not the new GrandTour will be affected.
