Renault Releases First Clio RS 200 EDS Test Drive [Video]
text size: A- A+
So, has it payed off? We won't know until real production starts and actual client cars are delivered, but this "test drive" video provided by the French carmaker itself seems encouraging.
The new RS hot hatchling seems to have become more savage and more calm all at the same time. Renault can make this claim because it has tied the engine, gearbox and traction control management systems with a pretty ribbon of three drive modes. This is a car for the playstation generation!
The Clio RS 'old times' will quickly point out that they too can shift gears for their overpowered supermini engines at about 1,500 rpm if they're in a bored mood. But even they will admit city fuel consumption estimated at just over 8l/100km is amazing.
