Renault Clio combines fuel economy and drivability with an upgraded range of engines: two new petrol engines, Energy TCe 90 and TCe 120, and one diesel, the Energy dCi 90. The Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) automatic gearbox will be available in 2013 on the TCe 120 petrol engine and the dCi 90 diesel. Further, depending on the market and level of trim, Renault Clio ships with a range of solutions to help drivers cut their fuel consumption and carbon emissions: an ECO mode that can be activated at the press of a button, driving style and gear change indicators, and the Driving Eco² application, which is part of the R-Link system.
When it comes to safety, Euro NCAP ranked Renault Clio as the "Best Car of 2012" in its "supermini" class. It has been awarded a five-star rating following passive tests. Equipment for passenger safety includes high-efficiency airbags, the Fix4sure technology to combat submarining or the three-point Isofix child seat anchorage. All versions of the model are equipped with ESC, ASR traction control, ABS and emergency brake assists, as well as electric variable-rate power steering and cruise control/speed limiter.
Renault Clio is built in the ISO 14001 certified plants of Flins (France) and Bursa (Turkey).
