New Renault Clio RS Facelift Scooped?
At next week's Geneva Motor Show, Renault will perform the public debut of the facelifted Clio range. Up until now, we've only seen a handful of official pictures of the new sporty Clio GT version that has been developed to close the gap between the standard models and the range-topping, Clio RS. However, a member of the French site 'Forum-Auto' uploaded a set of low-quality scoop photos that appear to show the facelifted Clio RS.
Along with the reshaped headlights and tail lamps of the standard Clio, the RenaultSport edition features a newly designed front bumper with a blacked out center section, dark finish alloy wheels and a restyled rear bumper. It remains to be seen if Renault has performed any mechanical updates. The current-generation Clio RS is powered by a 197-horsepower, naturally aspirated 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine.
