New Clio in 2003/04





Is there a new clio coming out in 2003/04? Ive seen references to this in several articles and reviews, but no actual details. Im taking delivery of a cup in a month and Id hate to see a new model launched the same year. Any info?

Cheers, P
 
  Renault Laguna Coupe


It wont be until well into 2004. If it was going to be this year it would have been announced at the Geneva show along with the Megane.
 


tHthere is no way this shape clio will go for another 2 years - its already had a facelift (major) the new shape will be released end of this year at the latest! The cup/V6 Mk2 are I believe the last incarnations of the Renault sport brand - next model to have Renault sport graced on their rear end will be the Megane !
 


So the clio will no longer be the smallest car...is it going to be like seat where they have an arosa, seat and leon (we will have twingo, clio, megane)??

tim sorry but i work in the industry

even jeremy townsend (the clio brand manager for the uk) says the clio will go on until 2005
 


yea-thats it, twingo is a fun little car but i duno if the old shape wil sell so wel, if they have a new 1 i think it would as introducing an old shape to a country and claiming its new wont work
 


The new clio will be the same as the new micra - ask renault therefore does that not tell you something...............like new clio = very soon seeing as new micra is already here? And you dont have to work in the industry tom to have inside information all you need is friends there and love!

no the new twingo will be the same as the new micra

the clio is bigger than the micra although it wil share parts with it when it goes on sale in 2005/late 2004

think u have confused us there tom - it wont be the same as the micra but it will share parts? I thought you said the twingo will share the micra platform - its therefore more likely to share parts also?

ok

Twingo shares engines and parts and other platform related bits and bobs

Clio shares engines and parts but has a longer wheelbase and more engines

platform doesnt mean they use the same floorpan or even any metalwork it just means components and parts
 


Clio continues as is until well into 2005. The pics in AUto Express are nothing like it. The Twingo is being sold in France until 2006 and its replacement may come to the UK
