Renault Clio GT Line teased prior to October 30 launch

We're counting down the days to the official launch of a stylish yet practical Renault. Stay tuned! #RenaultClioGTLine

Posted by Renault Malaysia on Monday, 26 October 2015

The Renault Clio GT Line has been teased by Renault Malaysia prior to its local launch, which has been set for October 30 – said hatch was previewed earlier on with an estimated price tag of RM118,000. Interested parties can view said hatch at the Sri Hartamas Renault showroom from October 27 to November 1.

So then, what exactly does the Clio RS 200‘s younger sister stand for? According to the brand, the Clio GT Line is directed at “drivers who want a sporty look but are not in the market for the high performance of an RS model.” As a result, it gets more or less the same exterior treatment as its hi-po sibling.

Up front, the large Renault badge is set within a gloss black assembly that bridges the (halogen) headlights while LED daytime running lights are to be found lower down. Elsewhere, 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 205/45 tyres are featured as standard with darkened side mirror housings, tinted rear windows and integrated rear door handles adding to the sporty outlook.

Under the bonnet, the Renault Clio GT Line is powered by a turbocharged 1.2 litre TCe 120 four-cylinder petrol engine with 118 hp at 4,900 rpm and 190 Nm of torque from 2,000 rpm. The sole transmission option is that of a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox that sends power to the front wheels. Zero to 100 km/h takes 9.9 seconds while top speed is rated at 199 km/h.

Inside, the seats are trimmed in fabric while a leather-wrapped steering wheel is featured as standard. Also, drivers will find an ‘Eco’ button located by the side of the parking brake – depressing said button is touted to improve fuel efficiency by up to 10%. In-car entertainment comes in the form of a seven-inch MediaNav touchscreen navigation and infotainment system.

The CBU-from-Turkey hatch is equipped with front, lateral head and thorax airbags, seat belts with pre-tensioners, Isofix mounts on the front passenger and two rear seats, ESC, hill start assist and ABS with brake assist as standard. Four colours are available – Diamond Black, Glacier White, Malta Blue and Flame Red.

    Too expensive. It is a very attractive car, but performance and specs put it in line with 90-100k B segment hatchbacks (some of which look quite good too), asking almost 120k for it, half way there to the 208 GTI with a lot more power, is just ridiculous.

    It has to be CKDd in Malaysia, maybe without the GT line kit (the regular one looks great too), and offered for 90-100k. Then it stands a chance. 120k… you’d have to be insane to buy it.

    Oh yeah, and I drove that engine in the Megane, and it’s great. Frugal (averaged roughly 6 liter per 100 km), with plenty of oomph low down (easily enough for normal traffic), and pretty refined and smooth.

    Looking at the interior there are some odd things…

    The center console’s upper half (the glossy bits) are taken from the LHD car. Including the start button, sadly, which might be a bit harder to reach as it is half way covered by the gear-shifter. But lower down they actually managed to shift sides. Not the 12V socket and USB ports, but the gear-shifter is moved, the handbrake is moved (yes, it’s supposed to sit further away from the driver), …

    The car has a sporty outlook on life eh? I wonder what its views on current affairs are like.
