Renault has followed up its earlier teaser for the fifth-generation Clio with an unhindered look at the B-segment model’s all-new interior. The Clio will make its global debut later in March during the Geneva Motor Show.

Focusing on the matter at hand, the new Clio’s cabin has been completely designed and made to look more upmarket compared to its predecessor. Renault calls it the ‘Smart Cockpit’, and claims it was designed to be driver-focused and comes packed with technology.

Starting from the driver’s seat, there’s now a digital display instrument cluster in place of traditional analogue one. Depending on trim level, the display measures anywhere between seven to 10 inches in size, with the largest including GPS navigation as well.

A more obvious display seen in the cabin is the new 9.3-inch one resting on the dashboard, which the carmaker says is the largest ever fitted on a Renault model. The touchscreen is slightly tilted towards the driver and is hooked up to the brand’s Easy Link infotainment system with Multi-Sense settings, providing access to many of the car’s functions.

You’ll also notice the dashboard is divided into three parts, with the upper panel featuring a foamed coating. This is followed by a coated and customisable central panel, as well as a lower area for things like the glove box. Wave-like shapes on the dashboard provide a sense of width to passengers, and they match up neatly with the air vents.

Renault also points out that part of the centre console is lifted to bring the gear lever closer to the driver for the sake of better ergonomics. Ambient lighting is present in this area, and you’ll also find it on the door cards.

Further down from the gear lever are the controls for the car’s electronic parking brake with brake hold function, along with a storage cubby and a spot that houses a wireless phone charger.

Other details include “piano” buttons, air-conditioning controls that feature tiny displays in them, and the use of soft-touch materials. The smaller steering wheel is a result of a more compact airbag design, while the seats are said to come from higher-end Renault models.
