The launch of Clio Sport Tourer also includes a Summer Special edition, the Expression, which will be offered in limited numbers and is competitively priced at £11,215 for the 1.2 16V 75 and £12,365 for the dCi 68. Expression’s interior includes a blue centre console and dashboard inserts, and the trim is similarly well-equipped with standard features.
Renault Clio Sport Tourer is one of the most compact estate cars on the market at just 4,202mm long with the same wheelbase as the Clio (2,575mm). Its generous loading space, 60:40 split-folding rear seat and large boot space of 439dm³ which is more than 50% bigger than the Clio, ensure Clio Sport Tourer is every inch an estate car.
The 60:40 split-fold rear seats free up additional loading space of up to 1,277 dm³ (up to ceiling; 239dm³ more than the Clio). With the smaller section folded down, Clio Sport Tourer can accommodate four adults plus luggage offering a load length of up to 1,450mm.
Boot access is exemplary, owing to the shape of the rear bumper and the very low sill height (581mm). Its removable floor ensures its boot is versatile and adaptable. With convenience and practicality firmly in mind, Clio Sport Tourer has a handy compartment for the rear parcel shelf when it is removed, under the removable boot floor. Removing this floor panel can increase the capacity by a further 72dm³.
The Renault Clio Sport Tourer is now available to order now, priced from £12,095 for the Dynamique 1.2 16V 75 to £14,495 for the Dynamique dCi 106.Published 25 June 2008
