The fifth-generation Renault Clio will debut on March 5 at the Geneva International Motor Show 2019. The European best-seller received an evolutionary exterior and changed under the hood.
The 2020 Renault Clio retains its rounded profile, while it is lower and shorter than the predecessor. More elegancy and dynamics are the next-generation model’s attributes, if to say about the exterior.
The car is built on Renault-Nissan’s CMF-B platform able to integrate the newest technologies. The automaker will detail the technical part in February. We can expect innovative Driver Assist functions closing to autonomous driving.
The Clio’s radiator grille is larger, and the bumper is more pronounced. The windows received chrome trim. LED headlamps are standard, while taillights became wider. Renault also revised the trunk space, which is larger now by 26 liters.
In its segment of subcompacts (supermini) the Clio is a top-selling car in Europe. Last year it was the first in terms of sales, followed by the Volkswagen Polo (2nd), the Ford Fiesta (3rd) and the Peugeot 208 (4th).
The automaker used its new E-tech mild hybrid technology for the first time ever on the Renault Clio. The Clio will be assembled at Renault’s plants in Bursa (Turkey), Flins (France) and Novo Mesto (Slovenia).
