Renault adds new sporty Clio S to its lineup
This new ‘S’ version is typically a 3 door hatchback with a new 5 door version available. The latter is developed based on the Expression specification which comes in 3 different variants, meeting the company’s eco2 criteria. Typically, the 3 door version would surely quench the thirst of the younger crowd as it looks way cooler to begin with.
At entry, you could get the 1.2 liter 16V version giving you up to 75 horsepower or a step higher with the 1.2 liter TCe engine that boosts out 100 horses. The other variant would be the diesel engine which is powered up through it 1.5 liter dCi engine getting you up to 86 horsepower. In terms of looks, this car has it all. well almost, nearly to be honest. But if looks are everything, then it might get you quite far.
It comes with 16 inch ‘Polar’ alloy wheels, a white front bumper insert and a cool looking ‘GT’ rear spoiler. To further impose its persona of being the sporty cousin of the Clio and as if it is not loud enough, you would also like the white racing stripes on the side and roof of the car while the outstanding ‘S’ in each of the band will surely and definitely drive the point home (no pun intended!). To top it all off, it also comes with extra tinted rear windows and tailgate as well.
Inside the car, you would also appreciate its ‘S’ embossed upholstery, a nice sharp looking white center console, dashboard inserts and instrument dials as well as a leather steering wheel. There are 4 colours for you to choose from which are Extreme Blue, Glacier White, Pearl Black and the nicest one of all, Capsicum Red.
