Renault Clio R.S.

From Renault press: New Clio Renault sport’s sporty credentials are visible both inside and outside the car. Its exterior styling includes aerodynamic features which take their inspiration from the world of Formula 1, namely the front splitter, the front- wing air-extractors and the rear air diffuser.

New Clio Renault sport benefits from all the ingredients that have helped forge the success of previous Renault sport models, including the availability of two types of chassis (‘sport’, and ‘Cup’), a high performance engine and specific brakes. The combination of the independent steering axis front suspension arrangement and reinforced rear suspension provides rigorous, balanced, sporty handling. The new Renault sport Technologies-developed 2.0 16v 203hp (147.5kW) engine brings out the very best in New Clio Renault sport’s potential, while the Brembo callipers and big brake discs deliver powerful, durable stopping power.

To meet customer demand even more closely, the Clio Renault sport range takes two distinct lines: chic, sporty appeal, for customers looking for a comfortable, well-equipped, status-enhancing car which places the accent on driving enjoyment, or outright performance, for exacting connoisseurs who are passionate about their driving. This new hot hatch shares its genes with the other members of the New Renault Clio family, and is versatile, safe and extensively-equipped.
