Renault Clio Estate (2010)
Renault Clio Estate
In order to capitalize on its existing popularity (17 per cent of Clio III sales in Europe), New Renault Clio Estate features the same front-end styling cues as the hatchback version, which itself takes its inspiration from New Renault Mégane. With a length of 4,228mm (an increase of 26mm over Clio III Estate), New Renault Clio Estate continues to stand out as one of the market's most compact estates, while its dynamic stance is heightened by its steeply-raked rear screen. The latter is topped by a spoiler and black or chrome profiled roof bars (depending on version) which are unmistakable pointers to New Renault Clio Estate's calling as the perfect leisure car. The longer rear overhang frees up a generous boot volume of 439dm3 (VDA, up to parcel shelf), a figure which extends to 1,277dm3 (VDA) with the easy-to-manipulate rear benchseat fully folded. Meanwhile, New Renault Clio Estate's removable boot floor gives owners the opportunity to choose between maximum carrying capacity or a completely flat floor and makes it easy to switch between a wide variety of uses. The baggage cover, which is often seen as something that gets in the way, and the removable floor can both be stored away in their own clever, practical compartments.
