Renault has just pulled the wraps off the fourth generation of the Clio model by releasing a presentation video and a large photo gallery with the model.
After the 2013 Renault Clio has leaked earlier today in official images published by mistake on the company’s Ireland official website, the new generation of the French B-segment vehicle has been finally presented to the public. As you can see from the images posted below, the 2013 Renault Clio 4 is coming with a completely new design, with lines inspired from the DeZir concept, and even by the Frendzy and Captur prototypes.
According to the French based automaker, the Renault Clio 4 is the first vehicle drawn by the new design team lead by Laurens van der Acker and this is a preview to future models in the company’s lineup, including the upcoming generation of the Renault Megane.
The new generation of the Renault Clio will become available for its future customers with features like the keyless access, rearview camera, Renault Bass Reflex System, Renault R-Link multimedia with touch screen, gear change indicator, ECO mode (reduces fuel consumption by up to 10 percent), Driving eco2 application for the R-Link tablet, double-clutch six-speed EDC transmission and much more.
The 2013 Renault Clio 4 is 3.5 cm longer than its predecessor, 4.5 cm lower and 2.4 cm wider and, compared to the Ford Fiesta, the new Clio is 11.2 cm longer, 5.6 cm narrower and 3.3 cm shorter. In standard, the 2013 Renault Clio will get 16-inch alloy wheels finished in two shades, chrome and black, but the second color of the rims can be the same one used on the body, according to the company’s officials.
Renault didn’t officially announce all engines available for the fourth Clio generation but we know for a fact that the 1.2 liter TCe with 120 HP can be found under its hood, along with the three-cylinder 900cc Energy TCe engine , with 90 HP. The Energy dCi diesel with 90 HP and 1.5 liter in displacement is expected to be the best seller in the diesel segment.
