Renault Clio, also known as the small car with big car attributes, has plenty to celebrate. It will soon mark its 20th birthday and it also wants to express its delight at having sold more than 10 million units worldwide.
And we agree with the carmaker that there's no better way to commemorate these successes than launching exclusive 20th limited edition versions of the three- and five- door Clio, Clio Estate and Clio Renault Sport.
The Renault Clio 20th limited edition is easily recognizable due to the specific '20th' badging on its B pillars, the gloss black finish of their front bumper moldings, exterior mirrors and side protective molding end-pieces, the dashboard with visible stitching, the anthracite gray air vents and center console and '20th' badging on the front door sills.
The versions will vary depending on country but one thing's for sure is that they will all be equipped with manual or automatic climate control, cruise control with speed limiter and an 80W Radiosat-CD with MP3 playback, plus Bluetooth and Plug & Music connectivity.
The model is available in an array of colors: non-metallic Glacier White or metallic Grey Blue, Pearlescent Black, Platine Grey, Dyna Red, Cassiope Grey.
The Clio Renault Sport 20th gets a special paint job, anthracite exterior mirrors, gloss black rear diffuser and anthracite splitter. The RS also received 17-inch Be Bop diamond-effect alloy wheels.
Renault said that the model boasts of comfort-enhancing features that include electrically folding exterior mirrors, one-touch electric windows and an 80W radio-CD with MP3 playback, and Bluetooth and Plug & Music connectivity.
To beef up safety, the Clio R.S. 20th comes with cruise control and speed limiter, additional cornering lights and curtain airbags. The 20th limited edition versions of three- and five-door Clio and Clio Estate will be priced from €14,350, while Clio Renault Sport '20th' will cost €24,700. The Special Editions will go on sale in Europe this March.
