Renault has begun teasing the arrival of the fifth-generation Clio with a teaser video, which provides a few glimpses of the B-segment model. Among the rivals to the Clio include the Ford Fiesta, Volkswagen Polo, Kia Rio and Toyota Yaris.

The teaser focuses very little on the exterior, as we are shown the Clio V’s grille that continues to feature the Renault logo prominently. Supporting elements include thin chrome strips on either side of the logo, while gloss black “pins” form the grille mesh, similar to what we’ve seen on recent Renault models like the updated Kadjar.

Another exterior cue revealed is a chrome trim piece with the Clio script, likely placed in the lower sides of the vehicle. The same shot also hints at a distinct character line that forms the Clio’s sculpted sides, which is present on the fourth-generation model.

While there isn’t much to go on based on the teaser, previous spyshots show smaller headlamps and a less pointed front end compared to before. The overall shape hasn’t changed that much either, with an evolutionary approach being taken as compared to a revolutionary one.

As for the interior, the new Clio will get a more upmarket cabin that features a new steering wheel design, stylish two-tone seats and an upholstered dashboard. The use of the CMF-B platform should help increase the amount of space on the inside, but we’ll have to wait for an official reveal to confirm this.

As for engines, a range of petrol and diesel units should be expected, with a hybridised systems arriving later on. It shouldn’t be a surprise that an RS version of the Clio will be on the way too, with a detuned 1.8 litre turbo from the Megane RS being a viable powerplant option.
