The GT-Line adds an over-boost function to the recipe, which means that the little 66kW 900cc motor squeezes an additional 4kW/15Nm in second and third gears for up to 20 seconds. This means that power is up to 70kW/150Nm with fuel consumption pegged at 4.5 litres/100km and CO² emissions at 105g/km.
Inside the GT
The interior has received lashings of glossy black and chrome detail to emphasize the model’s sportier pretensions. Much like the other models the GT-Line gets the MediaNav system with radio, media, hands-free telephony and navigation.
The new model comes with GT design front bumpers, GT design rear bumper with rear diffuser in dark metal, GT-Line badging on the tailgate, GT design 17-inch alloys, chrome exhaust pipe, dark metal details, body-coloured lower door strips with dark metal insert and a Renault Sport door sill guard.
Safety and features
The GT-Line comes with ASR traction control, ABS, EBD and EBA as well as driver, passenger and side airbags. There is also cruise control/speed limiter, card key and electric windows.
Warranty and pricing
The Clio GT-Line models come standard with a five-year/150 000km mechanical warranty and a three-year/45 000km service plan. The new model will retail for R224 900.
