    Joining the already-extensive shade selection are new colours; namely Intense Red, Pearlescent White, Titanium Grey and Iron Blue. The updated exterior is completed by a selection of new wheels.

    Interior

    The Clio now gets better materials inside, where all upholstery are new and special attention has been paid to the appearance and tactile quality of the plastics.

    Infotainment

    Customers will have an option between three different multimedia systems, the MediaNav Evolution, R-Link Evolution and R&Go. Helping the drivers to "delegate the completion of parking maneuvers" is Easy Park Assist, working together with front and rear parking sensors.

    Renault also said that the reshaped hatchback is the first B-segment Renault to come with Bose premium sound system.

    Equipment

    The 2017 Clio continues to offer full-grain Nappa steering wheel and gear lever, dashboard trimming, specific door panel and leather seats in black or black-and-white.
