New-gen Renault Clio arrives in Australia image

Renault has recently announced the launch of the new Clio generation in Australia, where the cheapest model will set you back for 16,790 AUD.

After it was officially presented to the public back in March, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the new generation of the Renault Clio is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the model arriving in Australia. The previous generation of the Clio was only sold in the high performance version Clio RS200, but this new model also marks the launch of the regular variant. The cheapest 2014 Renault Clio is the Authentique TCe90, which has been priced from 16,790 AUD.

The five-door Renault Clio is 4,063 mm ling, 1,732 mm wide and 1,448 mm tall and it’s powered, in the entry-level version, by an 898cc turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine, equipped with a stop/start system, which is good for 66 kW and 135 Nm of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 12.2 seconds and average fuel consumption stands at 4.5L / 100km. There is also a 1.2 liter four-cylinder turbo unit too, which is good for 88 kW and 190 Nm of torque. This is priced from 19,790 AUD, with the EDC transmission, in the cheapest version.
