New variant for the Renault Clio

The Clio R.S gets a new brother in the stables, if the R.S is too sporty for you then take a look at the Clio GT Line.

TC Euro Cars, the sole distributor of Renault cars, introduced a brand new variant for the Renault Clio. Previously only available in the Clio Sport, or better known as the Clio R.S. 200, the Clio GT Line will fall into place as the cheaper and less sporty variant of the two.
Like the R.S., the Clio GT Line will share the same smooth aerodynamic curves and elegant finishes that makes the car an eye-turner when it comes cruising down the road. The GT Line will sport the same design cues of the R.S. but with the addition of GT Line badging and special GT designed front and rear bumpers. 
Under the stylish bonnet hides a Turbo Control Efficiency or TCe 120 engine. A four-cylinder engine displacement with a turbocharger that Renault claims delivers the same performance as a naturally aspirated 1.8-litre engine. The GT Line shares the same six-speed Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) gearbox as the R.S., when mated with the turbo engine produces 118bhp and a peak torque of 190Nm allowing the car to make the century sprint in 9.9 seconds.
Fuel efficiency numbers are solid around 5.2l/100km and produces only 120g/km of CO2 emissions. Additionally, when the driver engages Eco mode, the car would save up to ten per cent more of fuel.
Renault has also improved the GT Line’s handling and stability for a more comfortable and enjoyable driving experience while the suspension was developed to provide driving precision with less noise and vibration.
Like the other R badged siblings, the Clio GT Line is also equipped with a range of useful and convenient features including the seven-inch touchscreen MediaNav System with USB and Bluetooth phone pairing, auto headlights and rain sensors, keyless entry and push start button with walkaway lock function, cruise control and speed limiter, motorway mode indicators and the Renault Bass Reflex system, which delivers more powerful bass frequencies and the listening enjoyment of a 30-litre home speaker enclosure.
The New Renault Clio GT Line retails at RM118,000 on the road inclusive of GST without insurance. Pick from a choice of four colours, Malta Blue, Diamond Black, Glacier White and, with a top up of RM5000, Flame Red.
