New Clio IV RS Spotted Testing on Nurburgring [Video]
This video, captured by Youtube user fastsportscardriver, is the very one to show the new hot hatchling in action, and we have to say that it’ more impressive than anything we’ve seen in a long time. The thing just grips and doesn’t let go in any way and the back seems to be more planted than the current RS 200.
The new 1.6-liter turbo engine sounds throaty and powerful. And it is, pushing out either 200 or 210 hp depending on who you ask about it. The Clio RS is quite stiffly sprung, making it quite stable through the corners.
Let’s just hope Renault doesn’t forget what the fans want and delivers a car that’s faster than the current Clio III RS 200. We have enough economical hatchbacks in the world.
