I think the next RenaultSport Clio has to be more like the 16v/Williams in terms of body style - and by that I mean all the panels bar the doors, boot and roof have to be "beefed up". I think the 172/Cup is a good-looking car, but it doesnt look far enough removed from the lesser models.
I can see that a Turbo 4WD Clio would take the hot hatch to the next level, but I dont think they could do it for a price near enough to the current RenaultSport model - the 172.
I think a 4WD Turbo Clio would be more of a Clio V6 replacement, unless the marketing consumer clinics revealed that people would pay £20k for one and buy them in sufficient numbers so that it was a genuine 172 replacement in sales terms.
I cant see them adopting what theyve done wtih the megane. Bearing in mind it will probably me a nissan micra with a new shell, i fear theyre going to have to make it a bit MPVish as is the current trend, though a performance model is something renaults small hatches have always had, so heres hoping theyll give it that sporting look like the latest ones.
