The all-new 2019 Renault Clio was caught wearing heavy camouflage. This model rides on its fifth-generation and it could make a debut in March 2019. Moreover, this hatchback will ride on the updated version of the current CMF-B platform. Furthermore, we have some rendering images that shows how the final version might look like.
The 2019 Renault Clio will get plenty of changes. For the start, a hybrid drivetrain is available, along with the revolutionary exterior design. On the other hand, the interior will suffer the most changes and upgrades. Generally, the ride feels smooth and we can’t wait for Clio to take the camouflage off. If you want a sportier and more aggressive model, Clio RS will also hit the markets.
2019 Renault Clio owns style similar to the new Renault Megane model
The 2019 Renault Clio was spotted under the camouflage, but it is clear that this hatchback will come with the style similar to the new Renault Megane. If you are looking for a further evidence, take a look at the horizontal grille bars. On top of that, the shape of the headlights is the same and J-shaped LED units are looking very distinctive. The side profile won’t suffer many changes.
The door handles are the same as on the current model, the same stands for the larger pillars and wheel arches. The rear end comes with a great styling, but unfortunately, we can’t see the taillights under the cover-up. A mounted rear spoiler should provide better aerodynamics and improve the fuel economy.
2019 Renault Clio interior will suffer dramatic changes
Bigger changes are likely to happen from the inside. According to French carmaker, the interior of the 2019 Renault Clio will undergo dramatic changes. The biggest innovation is a large portrait-style infotainment screen. Infotainment system will support the latest smartphone connectivity and the materials in the cabin will be upscale.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be standard from now on, and most of the tech amenities will be standard. With that in mind, you don’t have to opt for upper trim levels as before. Even the base model will sport navigation, Bluetooth and other modern technologies. We are waiting for Renault to release more specific details about the interior of the new Clio.
2019 Renault Clio powertrain info
The new 2019 Renault Clio will offer both petrol and diesel engine. Furthermore, Renault is planning to pair a petrol unit with an electric motor, but this combination is yet to be confirmed. The base drivetrain is a 1.0-liter petrol unit that delivers up to 90 horsepower. The performance isn’t the best, but this engine delivers 60 mpg in the city.
If you are often on the highway, you should consider a new 1.3-liter petrol engine that can produce 150 hp. This drivetrain delivers much more power and the fuel economy is close to the base engine. Furthermore, a 1.5-liter diesel should deliver even better mileage and around 90 horses.
2019 Renault Clio hybrid model
The Renault Clio Hybrid will become available, maybe even next year. This variant combines a smaller petrol engine with the 48V electric motor. The performance will be better and the CO2 emission lower. Of course, expect great fuel economy figures.
