Renault Clio III To Live On Despite Introduction Of New Clio IV

Renault Clio III To Live On Despite Introduction Of New Clio IV

Renault has announced that the current Clio III will live on despite the introduction of the newer Clio IV. The third generation Renault Clio will be sold as the Clio Collection in Europe.

In Europe the Renault Clio Collection will be sold in two model variants, the Alizé or Business, and will also be available in a choice of two engines, the petrol 1.2L 16V 75 and the diesel dci 75.

The REnault Clio Collection Alize and Business variant equipment levels are more or less the same with the Business being the higher specified version. With the Business having and Tom Tom navigation unit, higher powered sound system (80W s opposed to 40W) with bluetooth connectivity, USB port and jack socket, Cruise control, fog lights, electric door mirrors, height adjustable driver seat and three headrests on the rear seats.

We have seen companies like VW and Ford take the previous generation Polo and Fiesta and rebadged them as the Vivo and Figo, respectively. However in these cases both manufacturers did not really have vehicles in their line-ups which would see them effectively compete in the entry level market. Thus the introduction of the Vivo and Figo made sense.

The presence of the Renault Twingo in Renault’s line-up locally, may make it a bit more of a tough call for Renault South Africa to introduce the Renault Clio collection locally, especially if there is a possibility that the Clio collection would cannibalise on sales of the Clio Twingo.

We’ll just have to wait and see.
