2016 Renault Clio (facelift) – Rendering


Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!

Debuts later this year.

The current, fourth generation Renault Clio was introduced at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Also known as the Renault Lutecia, the European supermini is set to receive a mid-life facelift later this year. A speculative rendering from IAB’s digital artist Shoeb Kalania provides a peek into what is in store.

The 2016 Renault Clio’s front-end should get elements from the 2016 Renault Megane.

The 2016 Renault Clio, as seen in the rendering, will get a new front fascia featuring LED headlamp with C-shaped LED daytime running lights, new bumper, V-shaped four-slat upper grille, smaller lower grille, new fog lamps and resculpted hood. The rear-end could incorporate tweaked tail lamps with new cluster design.

Inside, the new Clio is likely to gain new upholstery and trim, and the R-Link 2 infotainment system among other changes.
