Renault has revealed the exterior styling of the 2019 Renault Clio – the latest version of the firm’s bestseller، according to Carwow.
You already know that you’ll see the new 2019 Renault Clio at the Geneva motor show in March، but in a break from recent car-launch tradition – Renault has side-stepped teasers and has revealed the car in full– all at once.
So what do the new pictures tell you? Well، they show you that the 2019 Renault Clio has been given an all-new، more premium look with a big bold grille and standard LED headlights with the C-shaped light signature seen on other Renaults. The car is 30mm lower than the old model – to improve aerodynamics – and gets vents ahead of the front wheels that are also designed to improve the air flow around the front of the car.
The hidden rear door handles are a carryover from the old model that trick your eyes into thinking the car is a sportier three-door and the look has been re-enforced with chrome windows surrounds and glossy black plastic trims.
The rear-end gets ‘3D’ design taillights and a boot-mounted spoiler. Renault says that particular attention was paid to the shut line between the boot lid and the rear bumper – a sure fire sign that it’s looking to pull the Clio upmarket. Despite the 2019 Renault Clio being 14mm smaller than the current model، the new version offers class-leading boot capacity of 391-litres – that’s 25% bigger than you get in the current Clio and more than you get in the bigger Volkswagen Golf. The boot، says Renault، also has a flat load lip and rear seats that fold away neatly into the floor for maximum practicality، and the 2019 Renault Clio also has 26-litres of additional interior storage.
The Clio is available with alloy wheels of up to 17-inches in size and you can choose from 10 colours including Valencia Orange that، we’re told، ‘offers unprecedented depth and radiance thanks to a specific coloured varnish treatment’ that Renault claims hasn’t been used before by another carmaker. You can customise the exterior further by going for one of three exterior packs that trim the outside of the car in red، orange or black.
