The 1.3 TCe GPF engine is making its debut on the All-new Clio after proving itself on Captur, Mégane, Scénic and Kadjar. Available with 130 hp and 240 Nm, it is mated to the 7-speed EDC automatic gearbox and replaces the TCe 120 as the top-of-the-range engine on New Clio. The new-generation unit showcases all the on-road qualities of New Clio, for a more invigorating drive in all situations. The dual-clutch EDC transmission makes driving more seamless and pleasant while also reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. And for still more pleasure, New Clio TCe 130 GPF EDC will be equipped with steering wheel mounted controls.
Blue dCi 85 and 115: a latest-generation diesel for greater frugality
New Clio is also available with a diesel engine in the shape of the 1.5 Blue dCi, adapted for intensive use and company fleets. This powerplant has been upgraded to comply with new pollution control standards with the introduction of a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system considered as the most effective nitrogen oxide (NOx) post-treatment solution. Two versions are available: 85 hp / 220 Nm for economical driving and 115 hp / 260 Nm for more athletic performance. With a manual 6-speed gearbox that reduces engine speed beyond 110 km/h, and thanks to its class-leading aerodynamics, New Clio Blue dCi is particularly efficient out on the open road and highways.
CMF-B: a new modular platform for the All-new Clio
The All-new Renault Clio is the first model to be built on the new CMF-B modular platform making its debut at the Alliance. Developed starting in 2014 at the Technocentre in Guyancourt, it comprises 85% new parts compared with the platform of previous-generation Clio.
The new CMF-B platform brings the All-new Clio a host of advantages. It has a lighter architecture than the previous platform, having shed some 50 kg, notably in the body, axles and hood. It also boasts underbody fairing that improves aerodynamics by 20 thousandths of Cd. These two upgrades reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. New Clio also features improved acoustic comfort, particularly thanks to the engine compartment soundproofing. Sound levels are some 1.5 to 2 dB lower between 0 and 130 km/h.
For the very best safety levels, the All-new Clio’s CMF-B platform has been entirely redesigned in terms of the body structure, side members and front body panel, notably through the use of high elastic limit steel and structural adhesive to improve fit between steel plates. These improvements bring occupants top-level safety. Safety is also reinforced by the innovative equipment on the All-new Clio made possible by the new architecture of the CMF-B platform, including an adaptive driver airbag, high-volume curtain airbags, safety belt pretensioners with load limiters, and Isofix attachments compliant with the new iSize standard.
With the new electric and electronic architecture of the CMF-B platform, The All-new Clio is available with the most extensive range of equipment and advanced driver assistance systems in the segment, from a front camera and radar, available on all versions, to the Highway & Traffic Jam Companion (Level 2 autonomy). The new platform was also designed with a view to the electrification of vehicles and thus the launch of the All-new Clio with the E-TECH hybrid drive train.
The arrival of the new platform in the Renault range is an integral part of the major objectives in the “Drive the Future” and “Alliance 2022” strategic plans. By 2022, 70% of Alliance vehicles and 80% of Groupe Renault vehicles will be produced on shared CMF platforms (CMF being short for Common Module Family).
Renault EASY DRIVE: the most complete driver assistance systems in the market
The All-new Clio boasts the most comprehensive range of driver assistance systems in its segment, the aim being to simplify driving, boost safety and bring motorists greater peace of mind. The systems are divided into three families: Driving, Parking (grouped under the Renault EASY DRIVE label) and Safety.
The new features on The All-new Clio include a 360° camera and active emergency braking with the detection of cyclists and pedestrians, which are both firsts in the Renault range. The highlight is the Highway & Traffic Jam Companion, unique to the versatile city car segment. This advanced driver assistance system constitutes a first step towards autonomous vehicles.
As part of its objective to make autonomous technologies broadly affordable, Groupe Renault will market 15 vehicles equipped with such technologies by the end of its “Drive the Future” strategic plan. New Clio is the first vehicle to do so.
HIGHWAY & TRAFFIC JAM COMPANION
The Highway & Traffic Jam Companion combines adaptive cruise control (with Stop & Go) and lane centering assistance. Active from 0 to 160 km/h, the system functions on vehicles equipped with an EDC automatic gearbox. It controls the speed of the vehicle and maintains safety distances with vehicles ahead while keeping the vehicle centered in its lane. Particularly useful in dense traffic, the driver assistance system stops and starts The All-new Clio automatically within three seconds failing input from the driver.
The system operates via a front-end camera and radar on roads where lane markings (continuous or dotted) are correctly visible and with vehicles in view. On roads with no lane markings, the system activates the adaptive cruise control only. When no vehicles are in view ahead, the lane centering system remains operational (from speeds of 60 km/h) as does the cruise control.
The Highway & Traffic Jam Companion is a Level 2 autonomy system that significantly improves driving comfort. Drivers nevertheless need to keep their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road. The system emits an alert if it detects that the driver’s hands are not on the wheel after 13 seconds. After two further alerts, it deactivates automatically after 48 seconds.
The Highway & Traffic Jam Companion will be available on the All-new Clio TCe 130 GPF EDC starting in late 2019.
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL (with Stop & Go)
The adaptive cruise control (ACC) system is being launched on the Clio range on EDC automatic versions. Available from 0 to 170 km/h, the function automatically maintains a minimum safety distance relative to the vehicle ahead. This distance – or more precisely, the time distance – can be adjusted by the driver (from 2.4 second to 1.2 seconds, and by default 2 seconds). If there is no vehicle ahead, the system works like a regular cruise control, maintaining the selected speed, including in descents.
The ACC is available on the All-new Clio TCe 130 GPF EDC with a Stop & Go function. In traffic jams, where the driver has to bring the car to a complete halt, the system can stop the vehicle in complete safety and start it up again after three seconds when the traffic starts to move. Beyond three seconds, the system requires driver input to start up again. After 30 seconds of inactivity, the system automatically deactivates.
CRUISE CONTROL WITH SPEED LIMITER
The cruise control/speed limiter system is available across the entire New Clio range.
AUTOMATIC HIGH LOW BEAM
Using the front-end camera, the low/high beam selector automatically switches from high to low beams according to external light levels and traffic, facilitating driving at night, including in extremely low light situations.
ACTIVE EMERGENCY BRAKE
New to the Renault range, active emergency braking with cyclist and pedestrian detection maximizes safety by alerting drivers of dangerous situations and may activate the brakes in the absence of driver input. It is fitted on the All-new Clio as standard and works day and night.
BLIND SPOT WARNING
Available on numerous vehicles in the Renault range, the blind spot warning system has been further upgraded for its debut on the All-new Clio. Using radars rather than simple sensors, it better interprets the distance and speed of vehicles located in the driver’s blind spot.
TRAFFIC SIGN RECOGNITION WITH SPEED ALERT
Equipped on the entire The All-new Clio range, this system uses the front-end camera to automatically alert drivers of speed limits and recommend them to adjust their speed. On models equipped with navigation systems, The All-new Clio combines road sign information and GPS data for even greater precision.
LANE DEPARTURE WARNING SYSTEM AND LANE KEEPING ASSIST
This system operates on road journeys from speeds of 60 km/h. It warns drivers and corrects the trajectory of the vehicle if it is about to cross a line without the prior activation of the indicator. This technology, generally found on higher-end vehicles, is available as standard on New Clio. It reduces risks in particular on long highway trips, where lane switches are one of the main causes of accidents.
The All-new Clio is the first Renault model to be equipped with the 360° camera already well known at the Alliance. The four constituent cameras provide a view from above the vehicle, displaying in a single image the obstacles located around the vehicle. The system is ideal for parking maneuvers or for driving in narrow spaces without risking vehicle damage. Extremely easy to use, the 360° camera activates automatically when shifting into reverse and is accessible directly via the “piano key” controls below the multimedia screen. The system displays two images on the screen: the front or rear view according to the gear selected, and, in addition, a choice between the 360° view or a close-up from the passenger-side camera.
FRONT, REAR AND SIDE PARK ASSIST
Twelve ultrasound sensors assist the driver during parking maneuvers by indicating the presence of obstacles or objects.
REAR VIEW CAMERA
Already fitted on the previous generation, the reversing camera remains available on the All-new Clio, simplifying maneuvers and parking-space exits in rear gear.
EASY PARK ASSIST
Providing assistance for parallel, perpendicular and oblique parking, Easy Park Assist has been upgraded to make all maneuvers easier, both for entering and exiting parking spaces. When parking, all the sensors manage the steering, while the driver simply works the pedals and the gearbox.
Renault EASY CONNECT: an enhanced offering and a new connected multimedia system
Groupe Renault is pursuing its strategy on equipping all of its vehicles with connectivity and the corresponding services. The all-new Clio is thus fitted with an enhanced version of Renault EASY CONNECT. It is equipped with the all-new Renault EASY LINK multimedia system supplemented by the MY Renault app. Grouping a number of connected services, platforms and apps, the system simplifies new connected mobility usages both inside and outside the vehicle, with remote vehicle management, more precise and more easily configurable routes, and the in-car integration of the connected worlds of the driver and passengers.
Through this new ecosystem, Renault EASY CONNECT adapts to each user and will be gradually enhanced with new services on all the multimedia equipment on which it is rolled out.
Renault EASY LINK: an all-new multimedia platform
The Renault EASY LINK multimedia platform is available in three versions on the All-new Clio, all of them compatible with Android AutoTM and Apple CarPlay:
- A 7-inch screen
- A 7-inch screen with built-in navigation
- A 9.3-inch screen with built-in navigation
The platform features an all-new interface that is more user-friendly and functional, inspired by smartphone design and usage. Users can customize some screens using widgets to directly access their favorite functions.
Renault EASY LINK is based on four main features:
- A 4G connected platform used to directly integrate connected services, including an automatic emergency call in the event of an accident, available on all versions of the All-new Clio.
- A constantly updated platform (automatic updates), navigation integrating real-time information on traffic and danger areas provided by TomTom, as well as new functions such as Google Places.
- Simplified use, thanks to a customizable and more intuitive interface (address searches on a single line as with smartphones, direct links always visible for browsing the main functions, shortcuts under the screen, etc.), the integration of 3D navigation, and the largest screen in the segment (9.3 inches, or twice the surface area of a 7-inch screen).
- An ecosystem of familiar services that are updated and continually enhanced by our partners including Google, TomTom and Coyote.
MY Renault: the world at your fingertips
The MY Renault app has been updated to bring motorists even more services and keep their vehicle within hand's reach. It can be used to better prepare routes and continues to guide users after they get out of their car and directs them back to it. It can also be used to lock the vehicle or remote activate the horn and headlights. Lastly, it provides optimized maintenance management through the monitoring of contracts and the general condition of the car, by way of reminders, and, depending on the country, enables motorists to directly make appointments with dealerships.

A new in-car experience with MULTI-SENSE and a premium BOSE audio system
New Clio pulls off a tough challenge. It is 12 millimeters shorter than the previous generation but is more spacious inside, setting new records on available volume in its category with a 391-liter trunk and 26 liters of storage spaces.
For the best possible in-car experience, the All-new Clio stands apart through its “Smart Cockpit” bringing motorists a more immersive drive and peerless comfort and well-being. Clio is available for the first time with MULTI-SENSE settings, already featuring on vehicles in higher segments, including Mégane, Talisman and Espace. The All-new Clio is also equipped with the BOSE premium audio system, introduced on the previous generation but now entirely renewed, for an even richer sound experience.
MULTI-SENSE: a customized Clio experience
Clio is now available with Renault MULTI-SENSE technology for a customized driving experience. Acting on the engine mapping, steering, light ambiance and the configuration of the digital screen that replaces the dials, drivers can use MULTI-SENSE to customize their car according to their mood, benefiting from several vehicles in one.
Three modes are available:
- Eco, to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions
- Sport, for more driving pleasure, agility and responsiveness
- MySense (the default mode), to customize the experience.
Drivers can customize the light ambiance with eight colors (White, Blue, Electric Blue, Yellow, Orange, Red, Green and Purple), each one illustrating the mode of their choice.
The MULTI-SENSE system is easy to use via the interface of the new Renault EASY LINK multimedia system or a special “piano key” button below the central screen. One touch suffices to open the MULTI-SENSE window and change the settings.
Depending on the mode selected, the digital 7-inch and 10-inch screens on New Clio’s dashboard propose a widget that can be customized by the driver, for example to display fuel consumption in Regular mode or power and torque potentiometers in Sport mode.
BOSE: premium sound and all-new technology
As a Renault partner for more than 10 years, Bose has taken its premium sound to the next level with its audio system for the All-new Clio. The Bose system has been fully redesigned with upgraded speakers and components, along with new tuning, to deliver a clearer, more impactful listening experience in every seat – without taking up any valuable trunk space.
The Bose system includes two additional tweeters in the rear door panels that weren’t available in the previous-generation Clio, as well as a compact and totally new externally-ducted subwoofer – the Fresh Air SpeakerTM* (FAS) – used as a world premiere in a Renault vehicle. FAS enables deep and powerful low-frequency sound reproduction without requiring a larger, more conventional subwoofer enclosure. FAS is integrated into the rear left lateral trim and does not impact any trunk volume, allowing the All-new Clio to offer 391 liters of space – the largest in its category.
In addition, occupants of the All-new Clio can now choose their preferred sound setting to match their music preferences by selecting either a forward-focused and neutral, studio-like sound, or a more immersive and lush, surround-like sound. Users can select their preferred listening mode on the audio settings screen. And to preserve the listening experience, the Bose system is equipped with “Dynamic Speed Compensation”, which automatically adjusts the volume and tone of music based on vehicle speed, reducing the need for drivers to make adjustments on the road.
*Fresh Air SpeakerTM technology is licensed exclusively by Bose from Blueprint Acoustics PTY Ltd..
