Renault Qatar set pulses racing at the sixth edition of the Qatar Motor Show, with the spectacular debut of its latest sporting legacy. Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Co., Renault’s exclusive agent in Qatar, announced the launch of the new ‘Renault Clio RS’ at the glittering opening ceremony of the six-day exhibition, in the presence of distinguished guests and members of the press.

The Renault Clio RS is a demonstration of Renault’s road to innovation, and embodies a remarkable assemblage of speed, design and performance. There couldn’t have been a better time to unleash this sporty icon, than during one of Middle East’s premier motor exhibition that gathers an impressive line-up of leading car manufacturers from around the world, year after year.

Designed by Renault Sport, the Clio RS boasts simple, yet, warm, sensuous lines that pump adrenaline in just the first look. To this, the brand has created myriad sporting hallmarks such as specific bumpers and sills, twin exhaust tail-pipes and large-diameter wheels – which are synonymous with high performance and F1.

The model’s confident sporty appeal seeps in through the interior, with visible splotches of red details offering a striking contrast to the elegant black trim. The color red rings in the notion of ‘passion’, and has been used generously to convey the sporty additions introduced by Renault.

Not just in appeal, the Clio RS is distinctively sporty even in its performance. The combination of the 1.6 turbocharged petrol engine and twin-clutch six-speed gearbox lends a unique responsiveness to the model. With its 200 horsepower, the Clio RS reaches its peak torque of 240Nm from just 1,750rpm.

In addition to its cutting-edge performance, the model also sets new standards in efficiency and environmental sensitivity, with an average fuel consumption of 6.3 litres/100km. Combined with a top-of-the-range standard equipment and infotainment systems, the Clio RS indisputably scores five stars in areas of comfort and versatility.
