No, this is just a render – computer visualization of the car. Designers of automotive publications decided to fantasize on the theme “the appearance of a new generation of French baby Renault Clio”. As the creators of this image themselves said, the exterior of the modern Mégane is the basis for their vision of the novelty.

A couple of hours ago, our colleagues from the American site Motor1 published a render of a completely new generation of subcompact Renault Clio. According to the guys, outwardly, the French urban baby will be in many ways similar to the larger brother Mégane.

We would like to note that the Renault Clio is the best-selling car in France – at the end of last year, about 300,000 copies were sold by brand dealers. With this result, the little car was able to take second place in the ranking of the best-selling cars in Europe.

Brand new (fifth in a row) generation Renault Clio will be positioned as a car 2019 model year.

As for the official presentation, it is likely to happen at the Detroit Auto Show (USA), which will be arriving early next year. It is known that the appearance of the “Frenchman” is waiting for quite significant changes – it will appear elements from the current style of Renault.

The published render is based both on numerous “spy” photos of the car, and on the appearance of current versions of the models Mégane and Talisman. Artists suggest that the new Clio will receive a new front LED headlamps, a new hood – and in general the front of the car will not be recognized. Changed and the space around the door glass.

Under the revised, but familiar appearance of the Renault Clio hides a whole lot of changes. It is expected that the new product will be built on the new CMF-B modular chassis, on which all new compact models of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance will be based (the European version of the Nissan Juke crossover is built on this platform). Under the hood is likely to be familiar 1.3-and 1.5-liter engines, which will meet all environmental standards.

Big changes are waiting for the interior of the French kid – it is known that the automaker is going to use materials of higher quality. Appear several modern technologies to help the driver.
