2013 Renault Clio GT unveiled in Geneva image

Renault has recently pulled the wraps off the 2013 Clio GT, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, in a premiere.

The Renault Clio GT is coming with a new front bumper with bigger air vents, with a more aggressive front grille, with LED daytime running lights, new side mirrors, door trims, darkened taillights, twin chrome tailpipes, a rear diffuser and 17-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in 205/45 tires. These new tweaks make the 2013 Renault Clio GT similar to the RS version, but a trained eye can quickly spot the differences between the two models.

According to the car manufacturer, the 2013 Renault Clio GT is powered by a 1.2 liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine, which is producing a total output of 120 HP (88 kW) and it has a peak torque of 190 Nm (140 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a six-speed transmission which is allowing the Clio RS-wannabe accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.6 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 199 km/h (123 mph). The fuel consumption in the Clio GT stands at 5.2 liter / 100 km (54.3 mpg UK / 45.2 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions stop at 120 g/km. More details on the model will be announced close to its launch.
