The Renault Clio, one of Britain's best-loved cars and one of the most iconic small cars ever made, comes of age this year as it turns 20.
Throughout its illustrious career, spanning more than two decades, Renault Clio has become one of the highest-selling superminis of all time, notching up more than 10 million sales worldwide in more than 100 countries, including over one million in the UK alone.
To mark its birthday in suitable style, Renault has launched an upmarket special edition, badged fittingly as the Renault Clio '20th'.
Renault Clio 20th - A Fitting Special Edition
This striking version of the Renault Clio is immediately recognisable through its specific '20th' badging on the B pillars, as well as the gloss black finish of its front bumper mouldings, door mirrors and detail on the body-coloured side mouldings which contrast with the body-colour door handles. On Pearl Black versions, these elements are finished in anthracite grey. They also benefit from stylish 16" Lyria alloy wheels and extra tinted rear windows and tailgate.
Inside the plush cabin, the dashboard features zinc grey air vent surrounds, dashboard inserts and centre console, in addition to '20th' badging on the front door sill kickplates. Based on the Dynamique TomTom trim level, the luxurious Renault Clio '20th' limited edition versions of Clio come comprehensively equipped with fully integrated Carminat TomTom satellite navigation, climate control, cruise control, electrically adjustable and folding door mirrors, front and rear electric windows, Renault hands free card, speed limiter, 'Sport' upholstery and 4x20W radio CD MP3 player with Bluetooth hands free system with fingertip controls, four speakers and USB connection.
Several options for the Renault Clio 20th are also on offer, including fixed cornering lights with black surrounds, electric panoramic sunroof and rear parking sensors.
