Renault has taken the covers off its next-generation Clio hatchback ahead of its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The company also released detailed images of the exterior and interiors earlier which show a complete evolution in terms of design and styling.
On the outside, the car gets a bigger grille, a more muscular hood, new bumper and LED headlights with incorporated C-shaped DRLs similar to the Megane. The rear of the car gets signature C-shaped taillights and the overall profile of the Clio has also been enhanced. The 2020 Clio will be available in 10 exterior colors, including the new Valencia Orange and Celadon Blue, with three customization packs.
The Clio V is 14 mm shorter and sits 30 mm lower than its predecessor. Despite this, the boot space has increased by 26-litres to 391-litres with the rear seats upheld which according to Renault is the largest in the segment. The occupants will also get more space in the cabin.
While Renault has not revealed engine options but it’s likely that Renault will soon reveal the powertrain range which will include a hybrid option as well.
Meanwhile, buyers can also get hands on the all-new Clio RS for now. The Clio RS replaces the GT-Line and adds a sportier look to the car, with an F1-like blade, special honeycomb grille, more athletic rear end and new 17-inch wheels. Moreover, the interior of the Clio RS Line features sports seats with reinforced support, a perforated leather steering wheel, aluminum pedal set, carbon-style inserts and red customisation touches.
