Clio range updated for 2004

In addition to the New Clio Renaultsport 182 and the 100bhp 1.5dCi engine additions to the 2004 range, the rest of the Clio line-up also receives a number of revisions.

Clio Generation 2004 has a sportier front end and all-new front bumper - which includes new fog-lamp housings - on the Dynamique trim level, Initiale version and all models powered by the 100bhp 1.5 dCi engine. On the Dynamique level, the bumper/grille unit with wide air inlet is teamed with a body-coloured rear sports spoiler – reaffirming the sportier character of this compact hatchback.

The use of soft-feel rear door panels further enhances quality. In addition, a digital screen has been added to the centre of the dashboard and the analogue instrument dials carry over the New Mégane design for a more modern appearance. Clio Generation 2004 also comes with a height-adjustable driver's seat from the entry-level and new rear electric windows on the five-door Privilège and Initiale variants.
