The new generation Renault Clio is set to receive a facelift to bring it into line with the new design direction introduced with the 2009 Renault Megane.
While these illustrations may seem quite far-fetched, their design should be rather accurate as they have been based on a set of allegedly official renderings leaked last month.
The current Clio in its performance guise has a rather healthy reputation as being not only one of the best handling hatches in the world, but one of the best handling cars in the world – period.
The Nissan-Renault alliance should see that this reputation is upheld, with each company bringing its own performance expertise to the table in a match made in motoring heaven.
This partnership is also expected to lead to an all-electric Clio in the near future, using the powertrain from Nissan’s Mixim concept.
