Rekaan mantap generasi keempat Clio, bakal muncul di Paris 2012

Menjelang pertunjukan rasmi Renault Clio serba baru di Paris Motor Show 2012 pada bulan September akan datang, beberapa keping gambar model tersebut telah didedahkan kepada umum. Renault Clio kini sudah memasuki generasi yang keempat dan hadir dengan rekaan luaran dan dalaman yang bukan saja sporty dan bergaya, malah rekaan keseluruhannya boleh dikatakan sangat-sangat mantap.

Menurut Renault, rekaan Clio telah dihasilkan dengan mengambil kira penggayaan model konsep DeZir, menjadikannya model pertama Renault yang bakal dilancarkan dengan identiti korporat terbaru. Penjana kuasanya pula menampilkan enjin petrol tiga silinder bercas turbo pertama dari Renault yang bersesaran 0.9 liter TCe 90, diikuti enjin empat silinder 1.2 TCe 120 dan 1.5 dCi 90. Transmisi EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) turut ditawarkan buat pertama kali untuk Clio.

Hanya model dengan lima pintu akan dikeluarkan, termasuk versi Renaultsport. Pada perkiraan purata, Renault Clio serba baru ini 100kg lebih ringan berbanding model sebelumnya. Untuk pasaran UK, pelancarannya dijadualkan pada awal 2013. Di bawah berikut merupakan petikan daripada siaran akhbar Renault berkenaan enjin dan transmisi Renault Clio serba baru;

Two new Energy engines : advanced technology for everyday motoring

New Energy TCe 90 petrol engine

New Clio is the first Renault model to feature the new three-cylinder petrol turbocharged Energy TCe 90 engine. This is the first three-cylinder powerplant ever produced by Renault and, from launch, will provide a remarkable balance between driving pleasure and fuel economy:

  • This three-cylinder, turbocharged 899cc unit comes with Stop&Start and delivers the performance of a normally-aspirated 1.4-litre powerplant,
  • An ultra low-inertia turbo for satisfying response from low engine speeds: 90hp and 135Nm at 2,000rpm (90 per cent of peak torque available from 1,650rpm to 5,000rpm),
  • An economy-optimised version with taller gear ratios and fuel consumption of 65.7 mpg, equivalent to CO2emissions of 99g/km[a],
  • A 21 per cent fuel consumption and CO2 emissions savingc compared to the TCe 100 it replaces

New diesel Energy dCi 90

The latest addition to the Energy family is a new 90hp version of the 1.5 dCi, equipped with Stop&Start:

  • A four-cylinder 1.5-litre engine with 220Nm of torque available from 1,750rpm, an increase of 20Nm over the current dCi 85,
  • An economy-optimised version with taller gear ratios which also qualifies for the Renault eco2 signature with fuel consumption of 88 mpg, equivalent to CO2 emissions 83g/kmc.

New TCe 120, paired with six-speed EDC automatic transmission

New Clio will be available with the new, dynamic TCe 120 engine mated to six-speed EDC transmission (Efficient Dual Clutch), a first for Renault in the B segment:

  • A four-cylinder 1.2-litre engine with the performance of a normally-aspirated 1.6 engine,
  • Direct fuel injection and turbocharging for peak power of 120hp and 190Nm of torque from 1,750rpm.

This engine is currently in the process of being homologated and will become available in the first half of 2013. It will be among the most powerful, yet most economical, engines in its class.

Along with the availability of EDC dual clutch transmission for the dCi 90 engine in the first half of 2013, New Clio will mark a further step in expanding access to the driving pleasure and seamless gearshifts delivered by this responsive and frugal automatic transmission.
