    New Renault Clio: a pleasure to drive, and targeting number one status for fuel economy and low CO2 emissions

    New Renault Clio combines low fuel consumption with driving pleasure thanks to a significantly updated range of petrol and diesel engines. The two petrol engines (Energy TCe 90 and TCe 120) combine very low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions with responsive performance and mid-range acceleration. The significantly improved new-generation Energy dCi engines bestow New Renault Clio with record-breaking fuel economy for the same driving pleasure.

    New Energy TCe 90 petrol engine

    New Clio is the first Renault model to feature the new three-cylinder petrol turbocharged Energy TCe 90 engine. This is the first three-cylinder powerplant ever produced by Renault and, from launch, will provide a remarkable balance between driving pleasure and fuel economy:

    * This three-cylinder, turbocharged 899cc unit comes with Stop&Start and delivers the performance of a normally-aspirated 1.4-litre powerplant,
    * An ultra low-inertia turbo for satisfying response from low engine speeds: 90hp and 135Nm at 2,000rpm (90 per cent of peak torque available from 1,650rpm to 5,000rpm),
    * An economy-optimised version with taller gear ratios and fuel consumption of 65.7 mpg, equivalent to CO2 emissions of 99g/km,
    * A 21 per cent fuel consumption and CO2 emissions savingc compared to the TCe 100 it replaces

    New diesel Energy dCi 90

    The latest addition to the Energy family is a new 90hp version of the 1.5 dCi, equipped with Stop&Start:

    * A four-cylinder 1.5-litre engine with 220Nm of torque available from 1,750rpm, an increase of 20Nm over the current dCi 85,
    * An economy-optimised version with taller gear ratios which also qualifies for the Renault eco2 signature with fuel consumption of 88 mpg, equivalent to CO2 emissions 83g/kmc.

    New TCe 120, paired with six-speed EDC automatic transmission

    New Clio will be available with the new, dynamic TCe 120 engine mated to six-speed EDC transmission (Efficient Dual Clutch), a first for Renault in the B segment:

    * A four-cylinder 1.2-litre engine with the performance of a normally-aspirated 1.6 engine,
    * Direct fuel injection and turbocharging for peak power of 120hp and 190Nm of torque from 1,750rpm.

    This engine is currently in the process of being homologated and will become available in the first half of 2013. It will be among the most powerful, yet most economical, engines in its class.

    Along with the availability of EDC dual clutch transmission for the dCi 90 engine in the first half of 2013, New Renault Clio will mark a further step in expanding access to the driving pleasure and seamless gearshifts delivered by this responsive and frugal automatic transmission.
