20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS FOR CLIOThe Clio saga continues!

In addition to being the only model ever to secure two Car of the Year awards, Clio has set new standards for the compact car §egmènt over the years.

· three- and five-door Clio and Clio Estate,

'20th' LIMITED EDITION VERSIONS TO CELEBRATE CLIO'S 20th ANNIVERSARY
Clio has vitalized the B §egmènt since 1990
Like the 4CV and Renault 5 before it, Renault Clio has stood out as a landmark model since 1990. In keeping wîth its original advertising slogan, Elle a Tout d'une Grande (The Small Car wîth Big Car Attributes), it has served as a driving force in its class, wîth each successive generation setting new standards in the B §egmènt.
In the space of 20 years, it has won over more than 10 million customers in more than 100 countries1 thanks to a styling, comfort, versatility, safety and equipment package worthy of cars from the next §egmènt up. Indeed, it is the only model to date to have claimed the Car of the Year award on two separate occasions: in 1991 initially – shortly after the launch of Clio I – and then a second time in 2006, wîth Clio III. As a pioneer in the field of safety, too, it broke new ground by becoming the first car in its class to earn a four-star EuroNCAP crash-test rating, in 2000. Then, in 2005, it went on to become the first to achieve five-star status. Last but not least, its exacting build quality has made it one of the most dependable cars in its §egmènt.
To mark Clio's 20-year long career as an international best seller, Renault has decided to introduce exclusive '20th' limited edition versions of three- and five-door Clio, Clio Estate and Clio Renault Sport.
