Renault Clio GT Unveiled in Geneva

Reveal

The Geneva Motor Show was deemed the perfect launching ground for Renault to debut its new Clio GT.

Renault used the GenevaMotor Show to launch its new Clio GT, which bridges the gap between the stock supermini and the Clio 200Turbo hot-hatch. The new ClioGT combines a Renaultsport-tuned chassis with a more economical drivetrain, thefront wheels driven by a 1.2-liter turbo four thatprovides 118 hp and 140 pound-feet of torque. Mated to the same EDC twin-clutch6-speed as its bigger RS brother, the Clio GT should reach 62 mph fromstandstill in 8.6 seconds and a top speed of 123 mph.

Also like the 200, it has a Renaultsport Drive button that offers drivers the chance to switch from Normal to Sport mode for a sharper throttle, quicker-shifting transmission and weightier steering. Unlike the hot-hatch, however, it returns an economy of 45.2 mpg. RS-inspired styling is evident in the grille, front and rear bumpers, lip spoiler, 17" alloys, offset LED DRLs and twin chromed tailpipes. Available in hatch and wagon forms, it comes with GT badging and can also be ordered with this new Malta Blue paintjob. The interior boasts aluminum pedals, sports seats, and on-board telemetry system.
