2009 Renault clio | new car review

Posted on Jun 19, 2009 by

Bigger and roomier, Clio III is a small car with big car refinements. This entry level car places the accent on driving pleasure thanks to its dynamic handling and high level of comfort, as well as offering a further illustration of ’s expertise in the realm of safety.

Clio III’s soft, sensual lines highlight the car’s dynamism and hint at driving pleasure. The warm and carefully finished interior takes up to five people in comfort and, in precise response to customer demand, the new model can be ordered in a choice six different interior trim levels and three equipment levels. With a length of 3.99m, Clio III ensures exceptional interior space for passengers, both in three- and five-door format. Numerous other comfort and safety features are also available, some of which – including the hands-free card – are totally new in this segment.

Based on the Renault-Nissan Alliance-developed B platform, Clio III was made for driving. Acoustic comfort, a key factor when it comes to driving pleasure and the quality of travelling comfort, was engineered into the car at a very early stage and this work places Clio III at the very top end of its segment.

Clio III’s passive safety features stem from a particularly demanding brief that mirrors Renault’s commitment and expertise in this domain. The car’s structure includes a number of programmed deformation zones and has been designed to function with the occupant restraint equipment championed by Renault’s third-generation System for Restraint and Protection. This includes up to eight airbags, including two adaptive front airbags complete with load limiter and double pretensioners for the front seats. Clio III also inaugurates a new seating concept for children aged between 6 and 10 sitting in the central position of the rear bench seat.
