Renault Clio IV 2012 – Onwards

FAI have over 50 parts in range for this trend setting French hatchback. The Clio IV was introduced at the September/October 2012 Paris Motor Show. It is available in hatchback body style and starting from early 2013 also as an estate, although not in the UK. The Clio IV is only available with five doors, with “hidden” rear door handles near the windows. Another 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 range of petrol engines consists of three options: a 1.2-litre 16 valve straight-4 engine, with a maximum power output of 75 hp (56 kW), 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 and a 1.2 liter turbocharged engine which produces 120 hp. A turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine, capable of producing 197 hp (147 kW), will be featured on the Renault Sport version.

The Renault Clio looks great and is reasonably cheap to run
