Fifth Generation of the Renault Clio Compact Car Unveiled

Patrick Schäfer

Renault unveiled its new Clio model at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. The fifth generation of the French compact car will be based on a new platform.

The Clio's design is a further development of its predecessor from 2012. The compact car features dynamic lines and a more striking front end, which now carries clip-shaped LED daytime running lights – similar to the larger Mégane and Talisman models. 

The interior of the Clio has been completely redesigned. It is said to have a driver-oriented cockpit with the "largest touch screen in its class". Renault also claims to have improved the quality of the interior. Technical details and information on the drive have not yet been disclosed. The Clio's direct competitor, the Peugeot 208, will also be shown at the Motor Show in an electric version. The French carmaker will also be presenting the revised Renault Twingo in Geneva, which now has a fresh look and a new Easy Link online multimedia system.
