Good news! The Renault Clio Sport is about to get new shiny things that you can buy.
Renault have announced that a “Black Edition” pack will soon be available for the Clio Sport, in case you wanted to make a statement even more so than the standard version.
The new look gives the Clio a slightly stronger look to the exterior with the package costing £200 more than usual on the New Clio Sport 220 Trophy and £350 on the Clio Sport 200.
So what do you get for the same cost as a semi-decent BBQ? Well it turns out a fair amount.
For the Clio Sport 220 you will get:
Black gloss door handles, black gloss moulding inserts, black gloss side mouldings, black gloss front blade, black gloss tail gate moulding + badging, and finally, you guess it! Black gloss rear diffuser.
For the Clio sport 200 you get pretty much the same accept for the added extra of 17″ alloy wheels in, can you guess what colour? Black! There seems to be a trend here…
The New Clio Renault Sport 200 and 220 Trophy both have a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine with power outputs of 200hp and 220hp respectively. Both are mated to a six-speed dual clutch transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifts.
The New Clio Renault Sport also innovates with an unprecedented equipment package for the segment, including Launch Control, the R.S. Drive system which enables a choice of three driving modes (Normal, Sport and Race), the R.S. Monitor telemetry application and hydraulic compression bump stops developed by Renault Sport for rallying, although, admittedly we’d suggest not taking it out on a rally stage stock.
The new R.S. Vision lighting system is a world first – LED multi-faceted lighting in the form of a chequered flag for a distinctive look and outstanding lighting performance. This exclusive technology co-ordinates the vehicle’s fog lights, cornering lights, sidelights and dipped and main beams to enhance night-time visibility.
You can buy the new Clio Sport range from a starting price of £20,295 (€22,320).
