New rendering of the 2016 Renault Clio (facelift) shows what’s in store

Will likely go on sale in late 2016.

One of Renault’s key debuts at the 2016 Paris Motor Show will likely be the 2016 Renault Clio. The current, fourth generation Renault Clio was introduced at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, and given the time gap to its refresh, considerable changes are expected both outside and inside the car.

On that note, a speculative rendering from Avto Magazin shows how the 2016 Renault Clio’s exterior will take inspiration from the brand’s new design language most recently used for the fourth generation Renault Megane. The rendering was posted by Autoblog Serbia.

The facelifted Renault Clio Mk4 will likely debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show this October.

Going with Renault’s new design language, the facelifted Renault Clio rendering features a new front fascia with Pure Vision LED headlamps, C-shaped LED daytime running lights, quad-slat upper grille, smaller lower grille, restyled bumpers and squared fog lamps with chrome trim above their housing.

Nothing appears to have changed at the sides, save for the restyled chrome trim on the door mouldings. Changes at the rear could include tweaked tail lamps featuring new cluster design. Inside, the 2016 Clio may gain fresh upholstery and trim, and the updated R-Link 2 infotainment system.
