Could debut already by the end of the year the new 2019 Renault Clio, which will be equipped with autonomous Level 2 driving and Hybrid Assist technology borrowed from the Renault Scenic.
Sometimes we like to look to the future, it’s just in human nature. Today our look at tomorrow is aimed at the compact Renault Clio, ready to debut with an all-new model in 2019. A very long-awaited and important renovation for the manufacturer of the lozenge, primarily because it concerns one of the models preferred by the public and that will touch the next year even the fifth generation-and secondarily because it is a car Definitely waiting, considering that the current version is on the road even from 2012.
Perhaps we will see her debut at the next salon in Paris, in the second part of 2018 – and according to the advances arrived by Jean Christophe Kugler, Vice president of Renault in Europe, the first Renault Clio to show off the autonomous Level 2 guide. A good news, especially because it is an innovation that will involve a compact car, a small town and therefore not a flagship blazoned. Of course, Level 2 of autonomous driving does not fall under the category “Miracles” – therefore it cannot be separated from the presence of a driver in flesh and blood, but it is still able to manage speed, steering and safety distances. In short, the dawn of that autonomous guide with a motorist with his hands on a book rather than on the steering wheel.
2019 Renault Clio Interior
Exterior look apart, which from generation to generation has always met the public’s favor – the most anticipated novelties from the 2019 Renault Clio should, however, cover the interiors. Just the cockpit, the choice of plastics and materials have always been the least convincing point of the French compact. This is because in the same segment there are the usual and almost annoyingly perfect German-with the pole in the front row. In short, the next Clio will focus on more valuable materials and definitely be more refined in detail.
As for Engine, the most interesting novelty should come from the (almost) hybrid version. In fact, the New Clio 2019 would steal the Hybrid Assist technology already seen on the biggest Scenic cousin and consisting of a small 48 Volt electric motor that comes into play by helping out the heat engine when it speeds up. With good peace for consumption and polluting emissions.
2019 Renault Clio Engine Specs
As for the thermal units, we could say goodbye to the turbo petrol from 0.9 liters TCe which according to the well-informed could be replaced or at least deeply revised and corrected. As for diesel zero novelty and is applied the philosophy that “team that wins is not changed”, or at least it does little-with the liter and half dCi to be the master.
