2019 Renault Clio Specs, Release, Changes – The new Renault Clio, a successful utility that should be fully renovated at the upcoming 2018, in September. Then we had information about what will be its 5th generation, now with new details and, for the first time captured images of prototypes and roll in the final phase of testing, even with the camouflage.

Completely new, the Renault Clio 5th should arrive on the market by the end of the year. Promises to be a much better car, offering unprecedented technology in the utility segment and a whole new look, front and back, new fully renovated optical blocks, some features already seen in their new brothers and Talisman and Mégane lines taken from the concept Symbioz that you can see in some photos of the gallery that accompanies this article.

The fifth generation of the 2019 Renault Clio does not seem to deviate much from that of today and maintains its sporty and muscular shape. The mask looks bigger, like on the recent Mégane and Scénic, while the tailgate gives the impression of being more shaped and three-dimensional than the Clio on sale today. The French subcompact should adopt the same platform as the Nissan Micra (they are built in the same factory) and almost certainly will be equipped with advanced petrol and diesel engines, starting with the modern 1.4, able to comply with the latest anti-pollution regulations without losing in driveability. A big step forward is expected in some regards the driver assistance systems (automatic braking, lane keeping, adaptive cruise control, etc.) of which today the Clio is unprovided and that cannot miss in a car of 2019.

2019 Renault Clio New Engines Performance

Regarding its development, and that we also had you yesterday when you expect the new Renault Captur 2019, the new 2019 Renault Clio will also start from the latest evolution of the platform CMF-B Alliance Renault-Nissan, which will equip all your new small cars. With adjusted production costs, it will also allow great advances in the model and, presumably, greater lightness. With new lightweight materials and the use of some aluminum components or thinner crystals, it should at least offer an estimated lightness of 50 kg less.

But, without doubt, in addition to estimating the premiere of a new digital cab with a very advanced instrumentation and an interior with higher perceived quality, where it seems that more novelties will arrive in the engines. As we announced with Captur 2019, the current trend of 0.9 TCE could be replaced by a new 1.0 TCE engine with only 3 cylinders and 100 hp, which actually derives from the new 1.3 TCE that Renault has already announced several models and has developed in collaboration with Daimler. This other petrol engine could also fit into the new Clio in its 130 or 150 hp top versions.

Although initially not confirmed that the new Renault Clio is available in diesel version and speculated with his last goodbye, recent rumors suggest that the new Captur will choose the 1.5 dCi 85 hp and 115, so it would obviously be logical that Clio 5 the will also climb.

With regard to propulsion systems, new models can offer Renault microhybrid variants consisting of a 48V electric system and a small gasoline engine, but also a hybrid version plug or even a 100% electric unit is scrapped .

It is also possible that the Renault Clio is advancing important steps in autonomous driving, with new functions of maneuvering, acceleration and automatic braking that could place it in a level 2 of this type of driving. For now, we can anticipate a utility that needs its renewal. The last generation was born in 2012.

2019 Renault Clio Release Date and Price

2019 Renault Clio should start next year, probably in the second half, at the Paris Motor Show, while the worst scenario would be the beginning of next year. The pricing strategy should keep figures similar to those in progress, where you need £ 10.5k to start getting this French supermini. If the current model does not lack charm, however, it remains behind the Polo and Fiesta with which it offers bloody battles in sales in the segment. The new Polo has just been funky for the first time, at least in the interior, while the new Fiesta simply changed some of the elegance to look more sophisticated. We will see if the new Clio reaches the crown in the house.
