Renault Manages to Woo Customers with the Clio GT 120
|   Thursday, July 18, 2013
Renault has launched the latest Clio GT 120 in an effort to bridge the gap between the Clio Renault Sport 200 Turbo and the standard model of the Clio. The latest model is also being marketed as the Clio Renault Sport and has been designed and developed by the Research and Development team at Renault. This vehicle is powered by a turbo charged and fuel injected 1.2 liter TCe four-cylindered engine, mated to a dual clutch six speed transmission system.


The Clio GT 120 is priced at £17,395 while the RS 200 is priced £1,600 more than the base model. However, the GT 120 is priced £1,300 more than the cheapest Clio. This makes this vehicle a prospective buy for people willing to pay the extra buck for the added services. Exterior modifications have been made to the ride while a rear spoiler has been added with rear embellishments, 17 inches alloyed rims, twin tail pipes as well as a deep anthracite shade over the rear diffusers.

Sill insets and door mirrors are also available as standard on the GT 120 while RS accents, aluminum pedals and a touch screen device have been added. The sport seats are firm and stable and offer class leading comfort while the driving position is upright and the interior is vibration free.

The switch gear is quite cracking while satellite navigation and Bluetooth have been added as standard on all models. The Renault Sport badge has been added to the interior and exterior and the engine displaces 118 BHP along with 140 ft lb of torque. Renault wants to redo the Image of the brand and establish themselves as a better service provider than before.

The transmission system on the current generation of Clio will be replaced by a lighter and more fuel efficient transmission system which makes up for the Clio GT 120's lack of BHP. If not for the transmission, the Clio GT 120 would suffer from serious lack of power. The engine red lines at the 6500 RPM range. The engine feels responsive at all times and the throttle is quite prickly.

The near silent engine on the Clio GT 120 is one of the biggest advantages of the machine and this enhances the refinement of the machine. Even though the GT 120 features rear drum brakes the braking is pretty smooth and linear and this inspires confidence into the heart of the driver. Downshifting can be difficult and hard although up shifts are comparatively smoother. The steering column is lightweight and responsive and is a positive aspect of the GT 120.

The GT 120 is one of the best engineering products to evolve out of the Clio Renault Sport lineup and sufficient time and resources were consumed in bringing out the final product. This is an awe inspiring vehicle and for the price tag attached to the car, you get a lot of power. If you have the need for speed but tied up with limited budget, the Renault Clio GT 120 Renault Sport is the best bet.
