Renault New Clio RS

New Clio R.S. 200 EDC takes the appeal of performance motoring to a new level thanks to the introduction of EDC dual clutch transmission and the new Renault Sport-developed 200hp 1.6 Turbo engine. New Renault Clio R.S. 200 EDC is equally capable of morphing into a genuine performance car with exceptional credentials. Meanwhile, in addition to its warm, sensuous lines which express its performance mission, New Renault Clio R.S. 200 EDC combines benchmark dynamics with carefully optimised fuel consumption. Designed by Renault Sport Technologies, New Renault Clio R.S. 200 EDC is made in Dieppe, Normandy, France, and targets those who appreciate beautiful cars and exacting purists alike.

“New Clio R.S. 200 EDC joins the Renault Clio line-up at the very top, not only because of its performance potential but also because of its exclusive appointments and specification. In addition to being ideally suited to everyday motoring, New Clio R.S. 200 EDC impresses by the fact that it is so easy to drive, as well as by its unprecedented comfort and low fuel consumption which make it a more versatile machine than any other sporting Clio that has gone before it.”
Ali Kassaï (Programme Vice-President – A/B Range, Renault)

“It is obviously tempting to describe New Clio R.S. 200 EDC as the ‘flagship’ Clio. Needless to say, our purist customers – who have always been uncompromising when it comes to performance – will discover a car that is not only extremely fast, but also a thrill to drive and packed with unrivalled technical innovations. Indeed, Renault Sport Technologies has succeeded in bringing to life all the know-how it has gained in motor sport during the last decades in the design of New Clio R.S. 200 EDC. It is a genuine Renault Sport model. At the same time, our more pragmatic customers who are drawn by New Clio R.S.’s lines and look, but who tend to be wary of ‘radical’ cars, also promise to be won over very quickly. The settings of New Clio R.S. 200 EDC can be adjusted to deliver exceptional performance when required, or a more rational ride the rest of the time. In this market, where the quest for ‘high-end’ motoring enjoyment goes hand-in-hand with the search for performance, proposing two cars in one is a highly innovative approach.”
Patrice Ratti (CEO, Renault Sport Technologies)
