With the Frankfurt Motor Show not even over, Renault’s officials are preparing for the next year’s Paris event, announcing that the fourth generation of the popular Clio model will be officially presented in France.
Renault’s product manager, Beatrice Foucher, announced at the Frankfurt Motor Show that the new Clio generation will also get “an athlete”, in the form of a Renaultsport version, while it will still be “saving the planet” by using a downsized turbocharged engine.
“Look to the new Twingo for even more clues, such as the more technical headlights, large diamond logo and black gloss grille”, said Beatrice Foucher. “It will be a very wide car and much lower too. There is always a bigger volume for the five-door car. It is expensive to invest in a three-door and you make less money on it, so it’s not as profitable”, added the Renault official.
The French automaker says that the new Clio generation is inspired by the DeZir Concept and Renault’s designers, in their turn, say that the DeZir Concept was inspired by Aston Martin V8 Vantage, so now we are really curious what the new Clio will look like.
This is all we now for now about the new model which will enter Renault’s line-up starting from next year and unfortunately, with the Frankfurt Motor Show keeping them busy, the French didn’t release any images or even sketches of the future Clio.
