The French hatchback confidently leads in the subcompact class on the European market. The Clio is almost a third ahead of the Peugeot 208, which is the second by sales.
In the first half of 2020, the Europeans bought almost 120,000 Renault Clios. The closest rival, the Peugeot 208, could boast less than 86,000 sales.
Last year, Renault introduced the new fifth-generation Clio. The newcomer was obviously well met in Europe. By the way, sales of the Clio increased annually from 2012 to 2018.
About 15 million Renault Clios have been sold since the production start in 1990. The model is Groupe Renault’s global bestseller.
The all-new Clio’s DNA is the one that has contributed to the model’s success for almost 30 years. Renault claims this new product is based on the strengths of each of four previous generations.
It is about high technologies normally used in higher-end vehicles, such as the Mégane and the Espace. The new Clio remains comfortable, spacious, of good quality, and gets a bright design.
Let’s add that the fifth-generation Renault Clio costs from 14,100 euros in France, for example.
