Renault Exterior Design Team on Creating the 5th Generation Clio

The new, fifth-generation Renault Clio has been improved in all aspects from its predecessor.

At the front, the hood incorporates ribs for a sculpted effect. The grille is bigger and the front bumper is more pronounced with a very expressive central air scoop that promotes engine cooling.

The new Clio is 14mm shorter (length 4048mm, width 1798mm) and the body has been lowered by up to 30mm (height 1440mm) for better aerodynamics, but it is more spacious inside.

The 17-inch wheels (depending on the version) enhance the new model’s dynamic look. Details such as the shark fin antenna, the 100% LED lights, the flush tailgate and the chrome-plated side-window surrounds serve to modernize the exterior and improve perceived quality.
