Renault extends Clio range

Renault has added three new versions of its Clio with additional specifications and features.

In three-door form, the Clio will now offer nine trim levels in its line-up, with prices ranging from £7,485 for the entry-level Freeway 1.2 16V 75 to £13,480 for the Dynamique SX dCi 106 with air conditioning.

The nine trims available to order now in three-door are Freeway, Extreme, TomTom, Expression, Rip Curl, Dynamique, Dynamique SX and Dynamique S 138.

The 1.2 Turbo 100 TCE engine will be available on both three and five-door versions.

The TomTom trim offers a TomTom One GB portable satellite navigation system worth £179 as standard and is only available on the three-door version.

The Clio TomTom is available in two engine choices 1.2 16V 75 at £9,260 and dCi 68 at £10,230.

Customers can also upgrade the standard TomTom system to cover Europe as a £50 option, and an MP3 compatible CD player with four speakers, two tweeters and fingertip remote control is available as an option at £125.

1.2 Turbo 100 TCE (Turbo Control Efficiency) engine

The 1.2 Turbo 100 Turbo Control Efficiency (TCE) engine debuts in the Clio and its sister-model Modus.

Renault said the new engine was based on the existing 1.2 16V 75, but features a turbo which provides the torque of the 1.6 VVT 111 engine, the power of the 1.4 16V and the economy and emissions of the 1.2 16V 75. This gives an alleged performance of 47.9mpg, a top speed of 114 mph and 145Nm of torque at 3,000 rpm.

The 1.2 Turbo 100 TCE produces 140g/km of carbon dioxide which will incur a road fund licence of £115 per year. It will replace the existing 1.4 16V 98 (158/161 g/km) and the 1.6 VVT 111 (160/163 g/km) as of this month.

The new 1.2 Turbo 100 TCE is available in the following engines/ trims:
