THE Renault unveiled the fifth-generation Renault Clio just over four years ago and is now updating the mid-cycle supermini to remain fresh and competitive against segment rivals such as the Volkswagen Polo/Skoda Fabia/SEAT Ibiza trio.

It's a significant facelift, considering the subcompact hatchback has a completely redesigned front end with slimmer headlamps and a wider grille with a checkerboard pattern.

The daytime running lights continue into the bumper, where they are shaped like a vertical half-lozenge as a reference to the Renault logo, which comes in a brushed chrome finish. Interestingly, the French brand is trying to make transparent taillights fashionable again.

In addition, the diffuser can have one of six available designs, depending on the equipment level and whether it is hybrid or not.

Renault is offering the updated Renault Clio with a choice of five wheel designs up to 17″ in diameter, all featuring the latest brushed aluminum corporate logo.

Go for the Esprit Alpine or the Techno finish and you have a shark fin antenna. Paint options include Arctic White, Platinum Grey, Black Pearl Black, Iron Blue, Decir Red, Valencia Orange and the new Rafal Gray tri-coat.

The interior has been extensively modified, but there are new sustainable materials throughout the cabin. Indeed, you cannot buy Renault Clio 2024 with leather upholstery. Instead, the seats are covered with a material made from organic fibers and polyester called TEP.

Step up to the Esprit Alpine and the little hatch gets sportier front seats with better lateral support.

As far as technology is concerned, the digital instrument cluster comes in 7-inch and 10-inch sizes, while the touchscreen is available in 7-inch or 9.3-inch configurations.

Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are supported, along with built-in navigation, a 360-degree camera and no fewer than 20 driver assistance systems. Highlights include adaptive cruise control (with stop & go) and Level 2 partially automated driving.

Next is another 1.0 liter three-cylinder, but turbocharged to 90 hp (66 kW) and 160 Nm transferred via a six-speed manual.
