2013 Renault Clio IV RS 210 Spotted Undisguised in White

SEAT Leon Cupra, VW Polo GTI, Ford Fiesta ST (the new one), Fiat 500 Abarth, Citroen DS3 Racing - all these cars have small turbocharged engines. The Renault Clio RS didn’t, as it stuck with the 2-liter four-banger for quite a while.

But Renaultsport has decided it’s time to go mainstream and have fitted the fourth-generation Clio RS with a 210 horsepower 1.6-liter turbo engine. Yes, “mainstream”, that’s what the fans are already calling it. But they still like it, and so do we, not that we’re not fans.

After yesterday’s example which was finished in black (Noir Profond for Renault), today we bring you photos of a white Clio RS 210. White, or Blanc Glacier, is a no-cost color option, unlike the black, which costs €350 in most markets.

So this is what the Clio RS will look like if you’re cheap and don’t want to pay extra. Not bad at all!

Unlike the previous generation, the Clio IV RS has a standard rear wing that’s better integrated into the roofline, a little shark fin antenna instead of an aerial, trapezoidal exhaust instead of round ones and two extra doors. The small vents on either side of the flared front fenders are gone and the front bumper looks less like an F1 wing than before, which is a good thing.
