[VIDEO] Renault Clio RS 220 Trophy EDC gets reviewed image

The guys from XCAR have signed one of the first reviews with the recently unveiled Renault Clio RS 220 Trophy EDC.

There is now a range-topping version of the Renault Clio RS which is available for order on the Old Continent. The model in question has been called the Renault Clio RS 220 Trophy EDC and it has been officially unveiled just earlier this year. But is this really as good in the real world as it is on paper? Well, the guys from XCAR haven’t been that impressed with it so you’d better check out the video posted below before rushing over to your local Renault dealership.

The model in question has a starting price of 21,780 GPB. Power is being provided by the 1.6 liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol burner, which is capable of producing a total of 220 HP (164 kW) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque. This basically means that it has 20 HP (15 kW) and 20 Nm (15 lb-ft) more than the standard Clio RS. The B-segment hot hatch is coming with features such as the TomTom Live satellite navigation system, a 7-inch touch screen display, an R-Link infotainment system, automatic climate control, rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights, DAB radio, cruise control, start / stop button and more. The Renaultsport Monitor V2 is available for an extra 295 GBP and for the leather wrapped Trophy sports seats you will have to pay another 1,600 GBP.

    Would rather lose a limb than go through ownership of another hot Renault – among other things the last model, the RenaultSport Clio 200 (Also the 197) came with a defective gearbox as standard, the synchro rings are made of a cheese like material which is entirely unsuitable for a 200 BHP car and so the gearbox will fail at anything from 1000-2000 miles!

    A terrible, irresponsible manufacturer and I would recommend avoiding at all costs – there are plenty good cars out there to choose from and enjoy without the misery of Renault ownership!!!
