The next generation of Renault Clio, the fourth one, would have shown up in 2011 if it was not for the internet, which is always willing to unveil any sort of secret. These leaked images present a compact hatchback which makes perfect sense to succeed the current Clio not only because it resembles Mégane III, but because it also keeps a sort of Clio identity, with its very characteristic descending roof line.
The new car will keep current engines and platform with some improvements. Expect the B platform, which is also used by Nissan Micra, to be a little larger in what relates to its wheelbase, while the engines will certainly adopt new strategies, such as direct fuel injection, in order to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
