A real star in its category, the Renault Clio is the bestseller of the diamond brand (at the head of new car sales in France for many years). Produced since 1990 by the French manufacturer, this city car is now in its fifth generation.

Renault Clio V

In 2019, Renault unveils the fifth generation Clio. If externally, the changes are not legion, inside, however, the French manufacturer has made a real move upmarket: new materials, large touch screen, or 100% digital instrumentation.

The older generations of the Renault Clio

Since 2012: Renault Clio 4

The fourth generation Renault Clio has completely changed its style, it is an entirely new vehicle. With a much more “sexy” look and its unbeatable price / performance ratio, it quickly ranked at the top of new car sales in France.

Renault Clio 4 - Renault Clio IVRenault Clio IV – 4th generation (since 2012)

2005 – 2014: Renault Clio 3

This third generation was launched while the previous one continued its career by adopting the name “campus”. It allows Renault to regain market share after a decline in shape. It is also on this third generation that the first station wagon version was produced at Renault (2008).

1998 – 2012: Renault Clio 2

Compared to the previous version, the Renault Clio 2 is seriously upmarket. It changes its look, softens its curves and receives in particular the excellent 1.5 DCI which is as efficient as it is sober, especially in its DCi 80 version. This second generation has been restyled 3 times.

Renault Clio 2 - Renault Clio IIRenault Clio II – 2nd generation (from 1998 to 2012)

1990 – 1999: Renault Clio 1

This first generation marked the spirits from its release. The “muse”, as it was nicknamed, demonstrated excellent driving qualities despite its compactness. It has been restyled twice and was available in both petrol and diesel. Sports versions (Clio Sport, Clio Williams …) have delighted many rally drivers.
