Renault Clio Celebrates It's 30th Anniversary​

Thirty years of stylistic and technological evolution, thirty years of trying to meet the needs of an active clientele, thirty years of slices of life. Today, who hasn't heard of Clio? Better still, almost everyone has a history, from near or far, with the one that has accompanied small and large journeys for three decades.

Since its first appearance in 1990, Clio has become the Renault Group's best-seller throughout the world, with more than 15 million units sold. The car that has most often been crowned the favorite car of the French has even risen, since 2013, to the rank of leader in the B segment in Europe. But beyond its commercial performance, Clio symbolizes above all a human adventure, both within Renault and outside.

Over the years, Renault has been able to preserve the DNA that has made the success of its star city car to offer today a fifth generation more Clio than ever before. Ever more modern, more athletic, Clio V takes up the assets of the four previous generations who built the saga:

  • From the first Clio, it has "everything of a great". Like the first Clio, Clio V has borrowed technologies from vehicles in the higher segments.
  • From Clio II, it has taken over the very high standards of habitability and comfort.
  • Like Clio III, it has changed dimensions in terms of perceived quality.
  • From Clio IV, it has inherited a strong design, which has inspired the entire recent Renault range.

The current Clio V continues its tradition of perfectly safe vehicles adapted to the times and proves it with its 5 EuroNCAP stars.

Today, Clio goes even further and writes a new page in its history by offering innovative E-TECH Hybrid technology. It electrifies everyday life and adapts to the mobility needs of the greatest number thanks to its recognized versatility.

To mark this anniversary, the Renault digital team has set up an operation called #CLIOGENERATION. The principle is simple: everyone, or almost everyone, has a story with Clio. During the month of August, the Renault Group's social networks were vibrating to the rhythm of Clio: archive photos and videos, interviews with insiders and, above all, lots of great Clio stories shared by our community. Slices of life that you can find on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
