Imagining the Renault Clio (iv) June 12, 2012 at 5:38 am
The prototypes of the Renault Clio, which will be presented at the Paris Show in September, go with more camouflage than Chuck Norris in the jungle action films. However, a bit of imagination and photos spy can give rise to a very approximate image of what will be the car, and L’argus l’Automobile it imagines so.
In the first teaser of the Clio were able to appreciate that there is no handle to open the rear doors, in fact he has hidden in the pillar (c), as the Alfa 147 or the SEAT León. It has not ruled out there is a three door version, but with that aesthetic effect is likely to be only in five-door.
The similarities with the ZOE Renault are more than obvious, the Rhombus of Renault takes prominence, in line with recent concept cars that have been appearing. The design is less boring and more emotional, that is what calls the modern clientele. It has left the current Clio completely outdated, and that she appeared in 2005.
This recreation does not provide what the position of daytime lights, which in the espiados prototypes are located on the sides of the large Rhombus, within the grid. Also find the brother design language, the Renault Mégane. Aerodynamics and design are taken seriously.
On the mechanical side, we can expect all engines turbo virtually, from 0.9 TEC Energy, passing through 1.2 TEC Energy until a 1.6 TEC which would replace the 2.0 16v 200 HP that uses the Clio RS. The reduction with cubic capacities and the turbo reaches all segments. DCi engines refers to down to 1.2 litres.
The platform is assumed, so it will be not revolutionary, but it is a fairly deep update and not a simple restyling. Official photographs could appear the next month, I do not think that you have to wait until September to meet him.
