Despite the fact that we are just getting used to the facelifted version of the smart family hatch. It seems that the new 2019 Renault Clio, scheduled for release in 2019, will include not only an electrified powertrain, but also level 2 autonomous driving functions.
The Clio should also follow the Megane with a more upmarket interior, a horizontally oriented infotainment system, as well as a large Renault badge and a signature C-shaped daytime running light. The style could be drawn from recent concepts, including the Trezor and Symbioz, although it will naturally be toned down. The Clio once led style steering in the Renault range, so its new look should preview the facelifted Megane and other models.
Renault Clio Engine
The 2019 Renault Clio will be based on the CMF-B architecture, but will receive some changes. Not only will this reduce production costs, but it will also give him access to a variety of gasoline engines. These include the three-cylinder turbocharged 0.9-liter, combined with the new 1.3-liter unit. Given the rise in price and the current trend in the diesel market, it is unclear whether Renault will offer Clio with dCi engines.
Renault Clio Electic
What will appear in the Clio for the first time will be a soft hybrid powertrain. This should make use of a small gasoline engine paired with 48V electric to help reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. This type of electrification was chosen because of its relative simplicity and affordable price; Renault bosses have ruled out a plug-in hybrid version of the Clio, however.
2019 Renault Clio Release Date
The French automaker will unveil the next generation Clio at the Paris Motor Show 2018 during the third quarter of the year. The first will be scheduled months before its planned sale in 2019,
