The sporty feel which should befit a top performance car such as the Clio Renaultsport 182 Cup is continued through to the interior with features including the stylish Graphic Night upholstery, which replaces the leather and alcantara of the 182.
To help with overall performance by making the car lighter and more aerodynamic as well as keeping costs lower for the customer, certain features found in the Clio Renaultsport 182 have been replaced or removed completely from the 182 Cup.
Manual air conditioning is standard on the 182 Cup unlike its 172 Cup predecessor, which replaces Climate Control found on the Clio Renaultsport 182. The 160 W radio/single CD has been replaced by a 88 W radio/ single CD player whilst the 60:40 split rear seats with head restraints have been replaced by a one piece folding rear bench seat.
Lateral airbags, xenon headlamps, headlamp wash, automatic headlamps, automatic wipers and heat reflecting windscreen are amongst the features that have been removed. Some minor trim detailing has also been removed.
Up to £1,295 less
The Clio Renaultsport 182 Cup is on sale now and customers can get their hands on what's been described by the media as the best hot hatch ever built for just £13,800 on the road, which is a saving of £900 off the list price of the Clio Renaultsport 182. But with the Cup Suspension and Spoiler packs fitted as standard on the 182 Cup - a £395 option on the 182 - the total customer saving is £1,295.
With the highly competitive price and top performance, the Clio Renaultsport 182 Cup is expected to be yet another hot seller.Published 18 September 2004
