As if Renault’s ever popular chic supermini, Clio didn’t already offer the perfect range line-up, customers are now set to benefit even further from more choice with three new versions added to the list.

In three-door form, the Clio will now offer nine trim levels in its impressive line-up, with prices ranging from £7,485 for the entry-level Freeway 1.2 16V 75 to £13,480 for the Dynamique SX dCi 106 with air conditioning.

The nine trims available to order now in three-door are Freeway, Extreme, TomTom, Expression, Rip Curl, Dynamique, Dynamique SX and Dynamique S 138.

The 1.2 Turbo 100 TCE engine will be available on both three and five-door versions.

  •  All-new 1.2 Turbo 100 TCE (Turbo Control Efficiency) offering torque of the 1.6 VVT 111, power of 1.4 16V 98 and economy and emissions of 1.2 16V 75
  •  Clio and Modus first models in the UK to feature this new engine

  •  All versions available to order now, in showrooms from May.


All-new 1.2 Turbo 100 TCE (Turbo Control Efficiency) engine
The 1.2 Turbo 100 (Turbo Control Efficiency) engine launches in the small car range in Clio and Modus offering economical benefits without compromising on power.

Based on the existing 1.2 16V 75, the new engine features a turbo which provides the torque of the 1.6 VVT 111 engine, the power of the 1.4 16V and the economy and emissions of the 1.2 16V 75.

With a combined mpg of 47.9, a top speed of 114 mph and 145Nm of torque at 3,000 rpm, the 1.2 Turbo 100 TCE offers frugal fuel economy and a powerful performance.

The 1.2 Turbo 100 TCE produces just 140 g/km of CO2 which will incur road fund licence of just £115 per year. Compared to the existing 1.4 16V 98 (158/161 g/km) and the 1.6 VVT 111 (160/163 g/km), which the new 1.2 Turbo 100 TCE will replace from May on Clio and Modus, that fall into Band D at £140 VED, this represents a saving of £25 per year.

I’ve had one of these in SX spec as a hire car for the past couple of weeks. It drove OK and the engine is fairly punchy for a 1.6 so no real complaints on that front. The seats were comfortable and the CD/radio is good for the price of car.
