KUALA LUMPUR: The new Renault Clio GT Line is now available in all showrooms nationwide, priced at RM118,000.
Presented exclusively as a five-door model but with a sleek coupe-like profile – the rear door handles are cleverly concealed close to the rear quarter lights – the car offers a distinctive look and feel, while delivering solid all-round performance.
A fun city car that delivers superior and sharp handling as well as high fuel efficiency, the Clio GT Line offers the racy looks of the high-performance Clio R.S. model but at more affordable purchase and ownership cost.
It features the company’s Turbo Control Efficiency or TCe 120 engine – a thoroughly modern powertrain that comes in a small four-cylinder engine displacement with a turbocharger, delivering performance equivalent to a naturally-aspirated 1.8L engine.
Mated to the six-speed Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) – a technology transfer from the flagship Clio R.S. – the Clio GT Line delivers maximum power of 120 PS and peak torque of 190 Nm – enabling powerful acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 9.9 seconds. At the same time, this spirited yet fuel-efficient engine also offers fuel efficiency of up to 5.2L/100km, equivalent to CO2 emissions of 120g/km.
It gets dark carbon upholstery, a grey-trimmed dashboard sculpted in the shape of an aircraft wing, optimally-positioned multimedia system on the centre console and Renault Sport door sill guards.
Other features are a 7” touchscreen MediaNav System with USB and Bluetooth phone pairing, auto headlights and rain sensors, keyless entry and push start button with walkaway lock function, cruise control and speed limiter.
The car comes in four colours – signature Malta Blue, Diamond Black, Glacier White and for an additional RM5,000, a bold Flame Red.
