The facelifted Renault Clio should go on sale in H1 2016
The current, fourth generation Renault Clio was unveiled at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Three years hence, the popular European supermini is preparing to receive cosmetic updates to keep it fresh for its remaining years.
The facelifted 2016 Renault Clio will be unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March, says a report Auto-Moto. The rendering, work of Julien Jodry from the French publication, shows how the facelift will possibly look like. The rendering is of the facelifted Renault Clio GT variant.
The front fascia has been revised with new headlamps and intake, and gets new fog lamp housing. The horizontal daytime running lights have been erased, and instead, new L-shaped daytime running lights have been added in a similar style to the Renault Talisman and Renault Megane. And being a GT variant, silver accents are seen on various elements on the exterior.
