2020 Renault Clio

Renault presented the All-New Clio, the fifth generation of the automotive icon. To date some 15 million units of the Renault Clio have been sold since it was launched in 1990 and it has become Groupe Renault’s best-selling model worldwide. Clio represents the French population’s favourite car more than any other model and has risen to the top of the B segment in Europe since 2013. In a remarkable sales performance, Clio sales increased each year between 2012 and 2018. More modern and athletic, the All-New Renault Clio draws on the DNA responsible for its success for nearly 30 years. It builds on the strengths of each of the four previous generations, opening a new and highly anticipated chapter in an illustrious story.

From Clio I, it has all the makings of a larger vehicle. Like the model launched in 1990, the All-New Clio features technology found on higher-end vehicles such as M├ęgane and Espace.
From Clio II, it has adopted extremely high standards of spaciousness and comfort.
Like Clio III, it ushers in a new era in terms of perceived quality.
From Clio IV, it inherits a strong design, one that inspired the entire Renault range and became a true trademark.
Designed according to the “Evolution and Revolution” principle, the All-New Clio rewrites the rule book with more mature body styling and an entirely revamped interior. Featuring more sculpted lines and a more assertive front end, the All-New Clio gains in vitality and modernity while remaining instantly recognisable, despite the fact that it comprises 100 per cent new parts. Inside, the revolution is strikingly clear. The completely redesigned interior is inspired by higher-end segments, both in terms of perceived quality and available technology. These strengths benefit all motorists, bringing them greater practicality and ease in use.

“The fifth generation Clio is very important for us as it is the best-seller in its segment and the second best-selling car in Europe, all categories combined. The Clio is an icon, and the latest features the very best of the previous generations. The exterior design of Clio IV won over our customers and continues to do so today, so we chose to keep that DNA while bringing modernity and elegance to the new model. The interior has undergone a true revolution, with a considerable improvement in perceived quality, greater sophistication and technology. It is the best Clio yet.” Laurens van den Acker, Senior Vice President, Corporate Design

The All-New Renault Clio is the spearhead of Groupe Renault’s strategic plan, “Drive the Future (2017-2022)”. Presented in autumn 2017, the plan has three key objectives:
Electric: by 2022, Groupe Renault will offer 12 electrified models in its range. The All-New Clio will be the first with its E-Tech hybrid engine based on technology developed by Renault.
Connected: also by 2022, the company is targeting 100 per cent connected vehicles in its key markets. The All-New Renault Clio perfectly illustrates this momentum with its new connected multimedia system developed by the Alliance.
Autonomous: by 2022, Groupe Renault will market 15 models equipped with autonomous driving technology. The All-New Clio will be a pioneer in this respect by making the driver assistance systems leading to autonomous driving widely available on a city car.

It takes just an instant to notice. Perceived quality and the ergonomics of the driving position were set as priorities for the All-New Clio interior design teams. The cabin takes on a new dimension in perceived quality with high-end materials, a soft coating on the dashboard, door panels and central console surround, and meticulously finished furnishings. Featuring a more compact design to free up space and integrate more in-car technologies, the All-New Renault Clio’s all-new ‘Smart Cockpit’ is driver-focused. The wave-like shape underlines the impression of width. Equipped with the widest screens in the segment, it provides resolutely modern ergonomics for a more immersive driving experience. The All-New Clio makes innovations unique to the segment widely accessible, among them an electric parking brake, which is particularly useful in city driving.

Renault Sport is introducing its R.S. Line trim on the All-New Clio, gradually replacing the former GT-Line. GT-Line was a pioneer in sporty look packs and has bolstered the Renault Sport range strategy in all markets since 2010. With upgraded and richer content, R.S. Line is more than a mere name change. R.S. Line provides a more athletic look in response to the expectations of customers, who are increasingly looking for extra differentiation through dynamic styling. Outside, the All-New Renault Clio R.S. Line is fitted with the F1 blade, an emblematic design component of R.S. models. It also stands apart with its honeycomb grille, special 17-inch wheel rims and more athletic rear end. The R.S. Line brings the All-New Clio more sporty attributes so that customers can more fully experience the brand’s motorsport heritage, which remains very much alive today, from Formula 1 to customer competition.

2019 Renault Twingo

More sophisticated while still fun and agile, New Renault Twingo has been revamped and is sporting a new look! Both inside and outside, it comes with new customising options. It also features the latest connectivity innovations with the new Renault EASY CONNECT ecosystem. New Twingo is available with three petrol-power units.
ULTRA-EASY TO HANDLE – With its rear-mounted engine, New Renault Twingo has a turning circle of only 4.30m, the best on the market. With its compact design (3.61m long), it can weave in and out of city traffic and can park in pocket-sized parking spaces.
ULTRA-FUN – Experience sporty driving with the New Twingo’s specific and secure frame. The new SCe 75 engine provides the best balance between driving pleasure and fuel consumption whilst the TCe 95 (which can be combined with the Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) automatic transmission, a unique car option available in this market segment) allows you to escape easily from the city.
ULTRA-CONNECTED – At the heart of the Renault EASY CONNECT ecosystem, New Renault Twingo is fitted with two multimedia systems, R&Go and EASY LINK. Connected with Apple and Android smartphones, these systems allow you use the most popular services such as Waze or Google Maps for navigation, and Spotify for Apple Music for music.
ULTRA-CUSTOMISABLE – By combining body colours (including the new Mango Yellow and Quartz White), interior and exterior colour packs, decals and the six-wheel rims available from the catalogue, New Twingo comes in several hundreds of versions.
ULTRA-CONVENIENT – Featuring five doors and a fully-folding front passenger seat, New Twingo offers a loading length of 2.31m, a record envied by higher-end cars. Drivers will enjoy the new centre console, as well as the more user-friendly bonnet and tailgate opening systems.
ULTRA-SAFE – New Renault Twingo protects its passengers with programmed deformation zones around the survival cell, four airbags and seat belts with pretensioners. Electronic driving assistance includes lane departure warning and hill start assist.

SLEEK
Completely redesigned with a more pronounced shape, the front bumper also reveals a sleek design with a larger painted surface and LED daytime running lights located in the headlamp clusters. The front grille’s graphics, especially the side air scoops (or inlets), make the vehicle appear more spacious. The top-trim level offers a chrome-finish which adds a distinguishing feature to the car.
C-SHAPE, IT’S CHIC
Introducing the lighting signature seen on all Renault vehicles, the new headlamp clusters include C-Shape LED daytime running lights and indicators. Unique in the small city car segment, these technologies contribute to the New Twingo’s distinctly chic and modern look.
IN ONE GO
The rear bumper has been redesigned and upgraded, with the addition of decorative trims. The C-shaped lighting signature can also be seen in the tail lights. Featuring a more convenient handle, the tailgate can now be unlocked and opened in one go.
DYNAMIC ALL THE WAY
The vehicle’s design contributes to its aerodynamic performance which can be seen with the front bumper’s air inlets directing air flows towards the wheel arches. The ride height, lowered by 10mm, and the rear-end fairing also help to reduce the drag coefficient. Side engine air intake, which has now been extended to all versions, improves engine cooling and provides New Twingo with a more assertive look.
TWO BRAND-NEW COLOURS
Fruity and intense, Mango Yellow assertively highlights the New Renault Twingo’s fun and quirky personality. The distinctly chic Quartz White is a pearly shade giving New Twingo a touch of elegance. The six ever more invigorating shades available are: Starry Black, Flame Red, Lunar Grey, Crystal White, Pistachio Green and Pale Blue.

THREE TRIM LEVELS
New Twingo oozes elegance with its LED lights available as a standard feature on all versions. Starting with the second-trim level, the body-coloured door handles and side mirror covers stand out. The top-trim level comes with many unique sophisticated features:
Front grille with chrome-finish hot-stamping
Body-coloured side protectors
Chrome-finish side mouldings and rear bumper trims
Three-line side decal
Shiny black side window pillars
15-inch Argos or Venetian alloy rims with diamond finish
A TWINGO FOR EVERYONE
The New Renault Twingo’s look may be upgraded with new customising options:
Colour pack: front grille rims, side mirror covers, side mouldings and rear bumper trims painted in Crystal White, Flame Red or Mango Yellow
Three-coloured, Dots and Cosmic decals available in white or black
16-inch Juvaquatre with diamond finish or the new 16-inch Monega alloy rims

NEW CUSTOMISING OPTIONS
Spacious and functional, the passenger compartment can be customised starting at the second-trim level, with a choice between Dark and Light upholstery colour combinations. This version also includes manual air-conditioning and a radio, compatible with the R&Go customisable smartphone application.
At the top-trim level, the new EASY LINK multimedia system, including a 7-inch screen and unique upholstery, is added. The dashboard comes with a white lacquered finish and the door armrests are covered and decorated with topstitching for a more sophisticated and comfortable feel.
Just like the exterior, you can choose from the colour customisation packs (black, red or yellow), to change the shade of the dashboard, the air vent surrounds, the steering wheel and the outer trim on the gear lever. The upholstery stitching can also subtly reflect the colour chosen.
IMPROVED STORAGE SPACES
New Twingo has been fitted with a revamped and more functional centre console featuring an adjustable holder in which you can place a cup or store a smartphone in an upright position. To increase accessibility, the console also includes two USB ports and a jack plug, together with the buttons used for both Stop & Start and cruise control/speed limiter.
A new collection of more modern gear knobs also contributes to giving a new feel to the passenger compartment.
The glovebox is now closed at all trim levels and the rear parcel shelf has been redesigned and reinforced. All of these improvements contribute to increasing the perceived quality of New Twingo.

RENAULT EASY CONNECT
Since Renault believes that the use of vehicles can be simplified through connected vehicles, Renault EASY CONNECT is gradually rolled out across the Renault brand’s entire range. This ecosystem consists of connected services using innovative technologies developed by the Alliance and its partners which are available via mobile apps and multimedia systems.
NEW EASY LINK MULTIMEDIA SYSTEM TO BE AT THE FOREFRONT OF TECHNOLOGY
This new system, based on a 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen tablet, aims to improve ease of use and usability through its user-friendly interface and the shortcuts available, reducing the number of clicks required to switch from one function to another. With standard integration of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, new on-board screens can be used to replicate the user’s smartphone. You can easily and safely access your compatible apps such as navigation and music.
Hands-free calling comes with improved sound, with a dual-microphone filtering out background noise to only reproduce your voice. Similarly, audio reproduction quality has been improved, with the addition of two tweeters to the speakers already provided. Going forward, Renault EASY CONNECT will be upgraded with innovative features to provide the best customer experience:
The introduction of connected navigation supplied by TomTom and upgraded with Google Places database for simplified and more effective destination searches;
“Over The Air” updates, allowing users to update their apps and services as easily as on their smartphones;
The launch of the MY Renault smartphone app to remain permanently connected to your vehicle and Renault distributors, to remotely manage your journeys, to locate your vehicle and other services to make everyday life easier.
REMOTE R&GO APP FOR SMARTPHONES: A SMART AND EFFICIENT CHOICE
The free R&Go app turns an iOS or Android smartphone into a user-friendly multimedia system compatible with safe driving.
The customisable display and optimised usability whilst driving allow you to access the various environments of the app:
Navigation: choice between the latest services such as Waze (now fully integrated into R&Go), Google Maps and Apple Plans;
Music: FM radio, streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music;
Telephone: making intuitive calls and voice reading of received text messages;
Vehicle: on-board computer, rev counter and Renault eco2 driving settings.

THREE POWER UNITS, INCLUDING THE NEW SCe 75
New Renault Twingo comes with three three-cylinder petrol engines, SCe 75, TCe 95 and TCe 95 EDC. Complying with Euro 6D standards, these engines feature the latest technologies, including the Stop & Start system and hill start assist.
More powerful than its predecessor, the new SCe 75 engine stands out through driving pleasure it provides that is perfectly suited to city driving. With a maximum torque of 92 Nm, New Twingo is particularly comfortable to drive in urban surroundings. It makes driving more enjoyable, whilst also helping to reduce petrol consumption and cut CO2 emissions. This engine is available with a manual five-speed gearbox.
Available with the same transmission or with a six-speed EDC automatic gearbox, a unique option available in the small city car market, the TCe 95 engine provides a maximum torque of 135 Nm. Turbocharging allows more responsive acceleration at low revs, therefore increasing the sporty-car driving feel both in the city and on open roads. The powertrain comes with a new exhaust system and a variable displacement compressor, reducing fuel consumption.
