The New Renault Clio S
The New Renault Clio S

While its flagship Renaultsport models continue to raise the hot hatch bar and obliterate their rivals in equal measure, Renault is also seeking to bring the sporty look and feel to the core Renault Clio range with the launch of a new 'S' version.

Resurrecting the successful Renault Clio S formula from the early 90s, the new three-door versions hark back to the original through their trademark white 16-inch 'Polar' alloy wheels. Among the other cosmetic changes, are a white front bumper insert and white 'GT' rear spoiler, while to the sides and roof, some optional slightly less subtle white racing stripes catch the eye with an 'S' incorporated into each band. Completing the package, are extra tinted rear windows and tailgate for a truly contemporary look.

The sporty theme continues on the inside the Renault Clio S, with a bespoke interior including 'S' embossed upholstery, leather steering wheel and striking white centre console, dashboard inserts and instrument dials.

The new entrants are based on the Renault Clio Expression specification, currently only available on five-door. They come with a choice of three responsive and frugal engines, 1.2 16V 75, 1.2 TCe 100 and 1.5 dCi 86, all of which meet Renault's eco2 criteria.

Pricing for the new Renault Clio S versions starts at £11,209 on-the-road for the 1.2 16V 75, rising to £13,458 for the 1.5 dCi 86 A/C. Buyers have a choice of four colours for the latest addition to Renault's ever-popular supermini range: Glacier White, Pearl Black, Capsicum Red and Extreme Blue.
