Renault Announces UK Pricing for New Clio RS EDC
Fortunately, that hasn't made the car much more expensive. Renault UK has announced pricing for the much anticipated Clio 200 EDC, which starts at £18,995, only "£100 more than the three-door, manual Peugeot 208 GTi and £1,055 less than the lower-powered, DSG-equipped five-door Volkswagen Polo GTI."
The Cup model actually costs more because it's not as stripped down as it used to be. For £450, it offers a 3mm lowered ride height, 15% stiffer chassis and quicker steering rack, red brake callipers and gloss black 18-inch Renaultsport wheels shod with Dunlop Sport Maxx TT tyres.
We'd stick with the more comfortable normal chassis and buy some of the many options available, like 18” alloy wheels (£185), rear parking sensors (£315). heated front seats (£250), metallic paint (£495 (Renault i.d. Liquid Yellow £1,300 or Flame Red £595)) and dark carbon full leather upholstery (£1,000).
Orders will be open on April 8th, with deliveries taking place in June.
