Initiale Paris special variant to be available from launch.

Renault has refreshed its Clio subcompact for the new 2017 model year, which brings a variety of improvements for the model.

The current fourth generation Clio was introduced in 2012 and was the first vehicle of the French brand to feature the brand’s new styling identity. Now it’s time for the Clio to get a facelift, which comes with a refreshed front fascia that features a slightly redesigned grille and new headlights with full-LED lighting signature. Certain versions will also be offered with LED Pure Vision headlights. As one would expect for such a facelift, the 2017 Clio also arrives with four new body colors and a selection of new wheel and wheel trim designs.

On the tech side, the car is receiving a 1.5-liter diesel engine from the dCi family that produces 110 horsepower (81 kilowatts) and is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. Also, the Clio TCe 120 version is now available with a new six-speed manual transmission, totaling the engine/transmission options to eleven.

Customers will also be able to buy a new R&Go infotainment system that joins the already available Media Nav Evolution and Renault R-Link Evolution systems. A Bose audio system is on the list too.

Order books for the refreshed Clio open this summer and an Initiale Paris variant will be available from launch. It includes an exclusive Givré Grey body color, a steering wheel trimmed in full-grain Nappa padded leather, a full-grain Nappa leather-trimmed gear lever, specific door panel and dashboard trimming, and enveloping leather seats in either black or black-and-white.
