This is the Renault Clio Iconic, one of three new special editions being rolled out by the French manufacturer in December.

The Twingo Iconic, Clio Iconic 25 Nav and Captur Iconic Nav get a range of upgrades and are available across different engine and gearbox options in each of the models - including the dual-clutch transmission that’s just been introduced on the Twingo.

The Clio 25 Iconic Nav is offered with the TCe 90 petrol manual and both the manual and dual-clutch versions of the dCi 90 diesel motor. It’s based on range-topping Dynamique S trim and gets a new design of 17in alloy wheel, extra-tinted rear windows, heated seats, a leather armrest, a leather handbrake cover and side mirror decals. Customers can also match the mirror graphics with a roof decal.

The Clio Iconic 25 starts at £16,775 for the TCe 90 version, rising to £19,375 for a dual-clutch dCi 90 diesel model.

The Twingo Iconic, meanwhile, is based on the Dynamique trim level but offers a different design of alloy wheel (available in black as a no-cost option), two new shades of metallic paint, matt ultraviolet interior trim, climate control, auto lights and wipers and black part-leather upholstery.

Prices for the Twingo Iconic start at £11,845 for the SCe 70 petrol model and rise to £13,445 for the automatic TCe 90.

The final Iconic edition, the Captur Iconic, will sit alongside the Captur Signature Nav in the line-up. It’s also based on Dynamique S Nav trim but gets two-tone paint as standard, part-leather upholstery, heated seats and Renault’s Techno Pack, which brings an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a rear parking camera and European mapping on the navigation system.

The Captur Iconic is offered over most of the Captur’s engine and gearbox line-up; pricing starts at £13,395 for the car in TCe 90 trim, but it’s also available with the dCi 90 and dCi 110 diesels, and the TCe 120 petrol. The most expensive edition is the dCi 90 dual-clutch automatic, which costs £21,195.

The Iconic editions are all on sale from 1 December, with first deliveries expected before Christmas.

Spec enhancements sound broadly similar, so I'm struggling to see why the larger vehicle seems to be the cheaper?

Tarted up LE's are one thing but when are we going to get a proper motorsport division-designed hot hatch Twingo?

Just bought my wife a Twingo Dynamique S. Its a little pocket rocket!
