The All-New Clio is the spearhead of Groupe Renault’s strategic plan, “Drive the Future (2017-2022)”. Presented in autumn 2017, the plan has three key objectives:
Electric: by 2022, Groupe Renault will offer 12 electrified models in its range. The All-New Clio will be the first with its E-Tech hybrid engine based on technology developed by Renault.
Connected: also by 2022, the company is targeting 100 per cent connected vehicles in its key markets. The All-New Clio perfectly illustrates this momentum with its new connected multimedia system developed by the Alliance.
Autonomous: by 2022, Groupe Renault will market 15 models equipped with autonomous driving technology. The All-New Clio will be a pioneer in this respect by making the driver assistance systems leading to autonomous driving widely available on a city car.
The All-New Clio is central to the strategy aimed at strengthening synergies in the Alliance. This strategy notably hinges on the development of shared technologies and the use of new platforms, such as the CMF-B platform that the All-New Clio is the first to be built on and its new electrical and electronic architecture. The platform can thus integrate the latest technologies to respond to new market requirements.
The All-New Renault Clio sparks an interior revolution
It takes just an instant to notice. Perceived quality and the ergonomics of the driving position were set as priorities for the All-New Clio interior design teams. The cabin takes on a new dimension in perceived quality with high-end materials, a soft coating on the dashboard, door panels and central console surround, and meticulously finished furnishings. Featuring a more compact design to free up space and integrate more in-car technologies, the All-New Clio’s all-new ‘Smart Cockpit’ is driver-focused. The wave-like shape underlines the impression of width. Equipped with the widest screens in the segment, it provides resolutely modern ergonomics for a more immersive driving experience. The All-New Clio makes innovations unique to the segment widely accessible, among them an electric parking brake, which is particularly useful in city driving.
A key component of the Smart Cockpit, the 9.3-inch multimedia screen (twice as large as the 7-inch version) is the biggest ever on a Renault model. The vertical and subtly curved tablet, inspired by that on Espace, visually enlarges the dashboard, lends the cabin a more contemporary feel and improves screen visibility. Turned towards the driver, the screen, with its new EASY LINK connected system, comprises all the multimedia, navigation and infotainment features as well as the MULTI-SENSE settings, all of them remarkably simple to use.
Digital instrument binnacle
For the first time, the All-New Clio is equipped with a digital screen replacing the traditional analogue display. The technology has been adopted directly from higher-end segments. Measuring 7 to 10 inches, the TFT screen can be used to customise the driving experience in a highly intuitive manner. The 10-inch version will include GPS navigation in the display. With its two, 9.3-inch and 10-inch screens, the New Clio boasts the largest screens in its category.
