You will identify a renewed Renault Clio 2016 for his new headlights projectors Full LED and the feature and daylight-shaped C, the new light signature brand; or subtle modifications in front and rear bumpers, calendered or different elements interior, where he also worked for generate higher visual quality. But the further evolution this new range you will find it under the hood, because it affects the engine range. On one hand, 1.2 TCE 120 hp engine wide supply through a version of manual shift, previously only available with automatic transmission EDC; otherwise, supply Diesel is extended with the arrival of the 1.5 dCi 110 hp. Good news, but better feelings. So they go.
Renault Clio 1.2 TCE Manual: superb performance
The engine, by itself, is a delight for smoothness and power delivery. That had already shown the version with automatic transmission. Now associated with the manual gearbox, This offers a double advantage Clio: a best purchase price and consumption somewhat lower. Available exclusively at ZEN finish, Clio 1.2 TCE 120 with manual transmission 6 speed costs less than 1450 euros automatic, thus offering a more competitive price. his consumption medium is also a lower tenth, down to 5.3 l / 100 km, equivalent to 118 g / km CO2. This new transmission also does something faster to Clio, improving acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in two tenths: 9.0 seconds now is the time announced in this exercise. While in exchange for losing the comfort that gives you any automatic transmission, this manual gearbox nice touch and quick insertion It makes this Clio is also more agile response if you get involved with him, since the EDC not being slow, yes "protects" excess engine when stretching gear changes or when reduced. According to the competition, where abound and three-cylinder engines, with excellent references such as Pure Tedch PSA 1.2 or 1.0 Ecoboost Ford, is not that its four-cylinder classical architecture provide clear advantages in terms of refinement and regularity of rotation, but it is true that the car assembly, engine change and achieves an excellent balance at all levels. Fast enough, not only for agile ability to shoot any type of road, but also to change and recover the pace, this version becomes in turn rival of another novelty novelty of the range, the 1.5 dCi 110 hp. Do will touch numbers, although Renault will not confirm the price of this release until October, at which time they will sell. But we can play with the estimates have the price difference between the dCi / 90 and 110 a Renault Captur versions: 800 euros, including a gearbox with 6 relations. Should this difference, the Clio 1.5 dCi finish on ZEN cost 19,100 euros.
Renault Clio 1.5 dCi 110 hp, quickly, smoothly and 3.5 l / 100 km consumption
Inexplicably, it was notably absent from this latest generation of Renault Clio, although this phase II corrects the shot. It is true that having the solvent 1.5 dCi / 90 in the range, and with prices that will move 1.5 dCi version, we will be the Clio more volume, but will open the range who want a great little car with big tourers gifts. Considering how well it moves this engine to a Renault Megane Renault Kadjar -here or have a duel faced the Renault SUV Captur-, You can get an idea of the excellent role that makes this engine aboard the lighter and smaller Clio. Among the most powerful Diesel utility where one of the best reference is the 1.6 BlueHDi PSA, the engine of the Clio stands out for its low consumption: 3.5 l / 100 km, equivalent to 90 g / km of CO2. The differences with the dCi / 90 does not lie only in the power factor, but in the gearbox, 6 speed in Clio dCi / 110 and with a ratio of developments very well adjusted to that major power translates into pure performance and pleasure of use equally, always with a strong response and sufficient margin in case you need further acceleration capability.
Remember that all the developments affecting the 5-door body are also extrapolated Renault Clio Sport Tourer to. He too Clio RS has undergone an update design, clearly visible by the new package of lights on the front RS Vision, three additional projectors integrated into the bumper with fog function, cornering lights and long range. The offer of this sportier version is still unfolding in the RS "normal" with the engine 1.6 Turbo 200 hp and automatic transmission, or Trophy, with identical transmission and 220 hp.
