2017 Renault Clio (facelift) – Rendering
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Exterior to draw influence from new Renault Megane.
Virtuel Car has created a rendering of the 2017 Renault Clio based on spyshots and reports. It will receive an extensive mid-life update, and is likely to debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in October.
As seen in the render, the 2017 Renault Clio will draw design influence from the new Renault Megane, featuring an updated pair of headlamps and a more aggressive bumper design with foglights located further away. The changes at the back could be limited to new taillight graphics and slight revisions to the bumper.
No spyshots of the interior exist at this moment. It is speculated that the cabin will be largely identical to the current model, save for new trim options and updated infotainment software. It’s unlikely to get the large portrait touchscreen displays that is being introduced in latest gen Renaults for the Euro market.
As for engine lineup, reports suggest that it will retain the engines in the current model, but could have minor revisions for better fuel economy. The engines include the Energy TCe 90 and TCe 120 in the petrol range and Energy DCi 90 in the diesel range.
