The Clio IV was introduced at the September–October 2012 Paris Motor Show, and began marketing a month later. It is available in hatchback body style and starting from early 2013 also as an estate. It is manufactured in Flins, France, and in Bursa, Turkey, where the estate will particularly be assembled.
A notable difference from the previous generation is the wheelbase, which has been significantly extended and is now near to the one of a compact car. The length and the width have also been increased, but less significantly.
The Clio IV features new equipment such as hands-free, rear camera connectivity with more than 50 applications (Renault R-Link infotainment system, powered by Android & TomTom) and a six-speed double clutch automatic gearbox that will be available starting early 2013.
The range of petrol engines consists of two options: a 1.2-litre 16 valve straight-4 engine, with a maximum power output of 75 hp (56 kW), and a turbocharged 0.9-litre 12 valve straight-3 engine, developing 90 hp (67 kW), which can have a CO2 emission level of 99 g/km. A second version of the 0.9-litre engine, with a peak power of 120 hp (89 kW), will be introduced in early 2013. A turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine, capable of producing 197 hp (147 kW), will be featured on the Renault Sport version.
The diesel range has two versions of the 1.5 dCi straight-4 engine, one of 75 hp (56 kW) and one of 90 hp (67 kW), which can have a CO2 emission level of 83 g/km.
