Description

The first generation of the Renault Clio was a B-segment car launched at the 1990 Paris Motor Show as a successor to the aging Renault 5.

The sporty Renault Clio 16S was launched in 1991, was fitted with a naturally aspirated 1.8 liter 16 valve engine (found in the Renault 19), that produced 135 hp (99 kw). Thanks to the 1000 kg weight, the car accelerated from 0-100 km/h in 8,5 seconds and could reach a top speed of 212 km/h (132 mph). It also featured uprated suspension with sportier setting and larger brakes than the base models.

Visually, the Clio 16S featured body-coloured bumpers, yellow tinted fog lights, wider plastic front wings, an offset bonnet vent, wider rear arches, colour-coded front mirrors and unique 15 inch wheels. Inside, the 16V model has an extended instrument panel that houses dials for engine oil pressure, oil temperature, and oil level (which only indicates on engine start), and more supportive seats.

In 1993, Renault launched the more focused Clio Williams.
