  • Renault Clio Gordini From £16, Cracking hot hatch gets a makeover - and a higher sticker price - with mixed results. Renault Clio.

    Any chance you get to drive one of Renault's stupendously hot hatchbacks should not be passed up, especially if it's a Clio version.

    Clio Renault Sport is a hot hatch produced since by Renault Sport, the high -performance division of French automaker Renault.

    However the car had features not before seen on a production version of the , which included lightweight inch Speedline Turini alloy wheels, matte blue door strips, ABS plastic "Cup" front splitter and a restyled "Cup" rear spoiler. Ariel Atom 4 review. It's silly, it makes more noise and let's face it these wee cars are not running V8 motors. Ariel's simple, purist concept remains but virtually everything else —

    Renault Clio Gordini review | Autocar

    The Renault Clio Renaultsport is a fine car, even if competence replaces the usual impishness of a hot Clio. A cynical piece of marketing — or the revival of one of the iconic names of motoring history; it depends on which way you look at it.

    But then the truth materialised: See the test pics of the Renault Clio Gordini The standard Renaultsport Clio is a favourite in the Autocar office and has humbled many cars with considerably higher sticker prices.

    The Gordini model is no exception; the bhp 2. It encourages you to push on — and rewards you with peak power arriving at rpm when you do. Few cars can be exploited to near the maximum of their ability at safe speeds on UK roads, but the Renaultsport Clio is one.

    But we already knew all this; so does the Gordini bring anything to the experience? The ambience in the Gordini model is certainly greater thanks to some extra blue and white-striped trim on the steering wheel, a new Gordini gearknob and some piano-black trim for the centre console. It also gets a pair of attractive leather-trimmed sports front seats and a leather-trimmed three-seat rear bench. Whether you like the exterior racing stripes and metallic blue finish is down to personal taste, but the Gordini certainly stands out from the rest of the Clio range.

    Enthusiasts who care more about a pure and exhilarating driving experience than fancy stuck-on interior trim and racing stripes buy Renaultsport Clios. It will appeal to those seeking a bit more individualisation only will be made and personalisation with their purchase, but the rest of us would be best served sticking to the entry-level model and waiting to see what — if anything — Renault does next with the Gordini name.

    See all the latest Renault reviews, news and video. A cynical - and some might say tacky - marketing ploy indeed. Even exclusivity is not guaranteed. The original Clio Williams was supposed to be an exclusive limited edition after all. Until Renault released the Clio Williams 2. And the Clio Williams 3. At least as the author rightly suggests, a Gordini 2 might actually be worth holding out for, especially if it incorporates some changes beyond just a couple of asymmetric stripes. What a wasted opportunity.

    The stripes on the outside are embarrassing and the blue flashes inside are garish. It could have been the Clio for a slightly older generation like me who really want a car like this but with a layer of subtle sophistication and class added. What a waste of a chance, just a money making scheme from Renault. Why anyone would buy one over the standard is beyond me. But isn't that what Renault is in business for?

    If they can make a decent profit on this car which they can use to develop great cars in the future, then that's a result as far as I'm concerned. What a waste of a first drive though. Surely since the car has the standard hardware, is was pretty obvious that it would drive exactly the same. As a result, the story could have been written without the need to drive the car, and just had a go at Renault for trying to make a few quid selling the car to someone who want to brag about owning a top of the range Clio.

    Anyone notice the newer Clio 's have an RS renault sport badge on the front grill? They didn't used to when they was 1st launched, how sad am I for noticing that lol. Id go for a alien green clio not cup version but id have the cup version suspension fitted , with anthracite alloys and optional recaro seats. I'm sorry but I don't agree. Every Abarth I've tested recently comes with a Monza exhaust. It's silly, it makes more noise and let's face it these wee cars are not running V8 motors.
