Clio II Gets Clio IV Nose in Brazil
These photos taken by Auto Plus show what the Clio I will soon look like for the Brazilian market. It’s a “facelift” that makes it look a bit like the new Clio, the MkIV, which is going to be launched soon. The nose doesn’t fit the lines of the car at all, and looks too long.
The car will be presented in late October at the Sao Paulo Auto Show, and sales will begin shortly after that.
The front isn’t the only thing that’s changed, as down the side you’ll notice the protective plastic strips for the doors are gone, and the mirrors are smaller and higher (and uglier). The boot lid is also new, not the shape itself, but the fact it’s got no housing for the number plate, which is now in the bumper.
