The all-new, fourth-generation Renault Clio has been scooped in hot-weather testing ahead of its launch at the Paris motor show in September.
The latest mule shows for the first time the Clio 4’s LED daytime running lights, which will be integrated into the gloss black grille and sited either side of a large, more upright Renault diamond logo. The front-end look has been inspired by the DeZir concept.
At launch, engines will be two new petrol turbos – a 0.9-litre triple with 89bhp and a 1.2-litre four-pot with 114bhp – and two variants of the extensively updated 1.5 dCi diesel, with 74bhp and 89bhp.
The new Clio will be a five-door only (with the rear door handles hidden to give the impression of a three-door) and shares roughly the same dimensions as the current car. The platform is a modified, lightened (by around 110kg) version of the current Clio’s.
