With the strength of 115 years of racing history supporting it, the Clio Renaultsport holds the full extent of Renault's racing heritage within itself. Renault's aim is to offer owners of the Clio Renaultsport access to this proud history through this modern vehicle, which has been designed to provide an accurate domestic rendition of Renault's race performance. As the modern representative of Renault's engineering expertise and drive dynamics, the Clio Renaultsport is the first choice for those who want the thrill of the racetrack in their own personal vehicle.
Every element of the exterior design that forms the Clio Renaultsport has been honed and crafted to express its sports-focused nature. Visual highlights include the door mirrors, handles, and side door skirts which are all body-coloured, and the windows can be tinted to add an air of sophistication. Wheel options are alloy varieties of 17 and 18-inch versions, putting emphasis on the sporty look of the Clio Renaultsport. The visual effect is brought together by the rear spoiler, which provides the primary visual focus at the rear of the vehicle.
Inside, the sports theming continues, creating a sense of unity for the vehicle's two sides. The Renaultsport leather steering wheel comes with double red stitching, and there is a red insert with an RS badge. Those inside the vehicle will find their attention naturally caught by the centre console, which is complemented by the aluminium foot pedals. Vehicle occupants can adjust the interior temperature through the manual air conditioning, and other features include an adjustable driver's seat and electric windows at the front and the rear. Renault has included its MediaNav integrated on board multimedia system for infotainment purposes, which is controlled through a seven-inch touchscreen. Navteq Nav 'n' Go Satellite Navigation is included, as is Bluetooth® functionality and USB compatibility.
The Clio Renaultsport's 200 Turbo EDC LUX engine supplies a muscular 265hp and 360Nm of torque at 3000rpm, giving it 0-62mph acceleration in just 6.7 seconds. At the same time, the Clio Renaultsport a combined fuel consumption of 44.8mpg, and CO2 emissions of 114g/km - impressive figures for a vehicle with which the main focus is performance and handling, rather than economy.
The driver and all passengers can feel protected by the front, side, head and thorax airbags, which are included as standard. There is a system for warning when seatbelts are not properly fastened, RAID (Renault Anti Intruder Device) automatic door locking, and remote central locking with a Thatcham-approved immobiliser. Child safety seats can also be easily installed, through the use of the included ISOFIX anchorage points.
