The new Renault Clio R.S. Trophy 220 features R.S. VISION lighting system as standard. R.S. Vision is the Renault's branding for the chequered flag-like LED lights in place of the horizontal strips seen on the previous model. Introduced on the Renault Clio R.S. 16 concept car, the new lighting system co-ordinates the car's fog lights, cornering lights, turn signals and dipped and main beams for enhanced night-time visibility. The new Renault Clio R.S. also features new 18-inch wheels and specific sills.

The new Renault Clio R.S. Trophy is powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that churns out 220 hp and 280 Nm of torque. The model can be specified with a new Akrapovic exhaust system which provides a distinctive exhaust note and ensures spirited acceleration. Power is sent to the front wheels via the 6-speed EDC dual-clutch automatic transmission. A 0-100 km/h sprint takes 6.6 seconds, and the car maxes out at 235 km/h.
