Clio III:
More than ever, the small car
with big car refinements

Clio III’s dynamic, positive handling contributes to ensuring outstanding driving pleasure.

Following the launch of Modus in 2004, Renault continues the renewal of
its B-segment range with Clio III. The new car marks the beginning of a new
chapter in the Clio success story which began in 1990 and boasts all the
necessary features to build on the success of its predecessors. Bigger and
roomier, the new car stands out as a benchmark in the small-car category. Its
chassis has been engineered to guarantee a level of driving pleasure worthy of
higher segments, while fuel efficiency has been optimized thanks to carefully
honed aerodynamics. Clio III’s five-star Euro NCAP rating also reasserts
Renault’s leadership in the domain of safety as the eighth Renault to achieve
the maximum rating. Roomy, dynamic, fuel-efficient and safe… Clio III really
does have all the refinements of a big car.

Clio III also inaugurates a new concept aimed at children of between six and 10 years of age sitting in the central position of the rear bench seat. a feature that has enabled it to obtain the maximum four-star score in the Euro NCAP child protection tests. The rear bench seat comes with three integrated headrests. The additional belt guide is located at the top of the seat back so that the child’s neck is not hampered by the belt. Clio III innovates with rear impact energy-absorbing seats and headrests. * According to country.
