Renault CLIO RS

New RenaultSport Clio IV

The first Renaultsport to feature EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) transmission as standard. Six gears selectable via aluminium steering column-mounted paddle shifters. Includes first sub-supercar multi-change down function. With a host of other technical upgrades to ensure it remains the ultimate “hot” supermini:

  • R.S. Drive with three driving modes to alter settings for engine, accelerator pedal, steering and ESC mapping: Normal, Sport and entirely manual Race (shift time ratio of under 150 milliseconds in latter)
  • Launch Control and fully disconnectable ESC and ASR traction control (in Race mode) for the ultimate track car weapon
  • First production car with hydraulic compression stops in shock absorbers (usually preserve of rally cars)
  • R.S. Diff enhances grip, standing start performance and understeer removal
  • New steering calibration, MacPherson front axle set-up, plus rear axle with 10% increased anti-roll bar stiffness, bigger brakes – 320mm v 312 before
  • R.S. Sound Pipe sends engine soundwaves directly into cabin for heightened driving experience
