2012 Renault Clio RS | Sport Hot Hatch

Time does fly and we are already at the end of the third of the Renault Clio RS. The 2.0-litre aspirated inline 4 produces and is mated to an incredible 6 speed transmission. The misconception of short hard clutches and lack of amenities shies many away from this

The Renault Clio RS could not be than the truth now. The is great for city and highway the seats are Recaro buckets but great comfort despite the way it and you get an aux and a USB port to play endless while enjoying this of a car.

The small size and an eager plant make it great for urban jungle; however the factor rises past the mark. To our surprise the 6 th gear is versatile. It’s designed to the rpm low at cruising speeds but one would that when the accelerator is the pull would be, in the lack of a word, pretty non-existent. We did not need to shift down any to overtake cars; the secret is the ratios keep the car in a sweet always.

A slight press on the accelerator tips the scale onto its band and ready for action.

The is trademark Renault. It’s spartan but extremely functional. The is meaty and manual gear is weighted right.

The throw is not what I would short but is definitely not borderline

The “RS” stands for Renault and Renault has achieved a visceral look. They seem to taken ques from its F1 Development and have integrated canards, reminiscent to their F1 wings, to aid in ground force in speeds. The Renault Clio RS is a wheel drive car and we would say the canards have really as we felt no flightiness of the steering at hard acceleration or in fast changes.

The added breadth of the car and the lower than the regular Clio in handling and points towards its grip on the road.

The Clio RS to be pushed. It beckons and literally one to drive it faster. It gives a of oneness with the car. One truly alive in this sport which sadly a lot of car manufacturers have deprived us of.

The is firm for those engaged and comfortable enough to cruise

As a daily vehicle there are limitations. The rear seats are for those with really legs or really tiny The trunk is decent but there is an full spare wheel. To any use of it we needed to have the wheel

For a family of two or for those whose wish is for a pure unadulterated experience this car is it.

The Renault RS is a surgeons scalpel with a handle. It brings back fun in for a change and you won#8217;y need to your savings to access it. At AED 91k the Clio RS is cheaper than the Toyota 86 and the Subaru BRZ. But the Clio RS also marks the end of the …, which is sad for the purists in us.

Get it while stocks last.
