Renault Clio RS Review
If you are ever lucky enough to get behind the leather steering wheel of a Renaultsport Clio 200 LUX or 220 TROPHY you’ll get to experience driving perfection. These tearaway automobiles are as sensible as they are crazy, as sexy as they are reliable and as affordable as they are fun. In fact, these Renault’s responds well to a sporty driving style and are an impressive performer on both the open road and built-up urban traffic. To add to the sporty image of these already fine looking cars, the Renault designers have made this five-door Clio RS Range look like a sportier three-door hatch thanks to the hidden rear door handles which give it an even more “fun to drive” look and sports car appeal.
Clio RS Safetyp>This fourth-generation Clio RS is also exceptionally safe and boasts plenty of safety kit, including multiple airbags. Additionally, the Clio RS Range comes standard with ABS, EBA, ESC, ASR, Cruise Control, and Hill Start Assist (HSA) as safety features. All of which have helped it score a maximum 5-star rating in its Official Euro NCAP’s Crash Tests.

These technologies include, but are by no means limited to, driver and passenger airbags, a Media Nav Multimedia System, Sequential EDC Gear Levers and a Bluetooth® Hands-free Telephone System.
Clio RS Styling
Sporty and fun coalesce into what can only be explained as the pinnacle of Renault design. Simple yet dramatic, beautiful yet extreme. The stylings of the Clio RS are perfect in every way thanks to flowing lines that continue from the outside into the extravagant passenger cabin.
Clio RS Driving & Handling
The new Renault Clio RS Range can take on both the open road and the urban jungle thanks to a unique easy to enjoy intuitive driving style. If this was a human athlete it would be an extremely supple one, as this vehicle can find its way along the smallest side road as well as the widest open road with ease.
Overall Thoughts on the Clio RS
When it comes to economical, zippy and sporty, Renault has historically had this section of the market cornered. Today both the Clio RS 200 LUX and Clio RS TROPHY continue this trend and offer you performance, safety, good looks, and all it at an affordable price.

There is literally nothing that we don’t like about this car! It ticks all of the right boxes when it comes to a Renault Sport branded automobile, and one can literally feel the Formula 1 Technology that has been used to develop the RS brand every time you climb behind the wheel. We highly recommend both of the Renaultsport Clio Cars and are sure that you’ll enjoy what they have to offer.
