Renaultsport Clio RS220 Trophy

Renaultsport Clio RS220 Trophy

REVIEW

Ever since the original 5 Turbo, Renault (and latterly RenaultSport) has been creating some of the best hot hatchbacks around, from Clio Williams to 172, 182, 197 and now to the latest version – the Clio RS220 Trophy. So power is up to a crazy 217bhp from the 1.6 litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and there’s a fancy limited slip differential to handle that power through the front wheels. But there are some changes this time around – the RS220 is now 5dr only, great for families but purists hate it – and that power gets to the wheels via a 6-speed dual clutch paddle-shift gearbox. That means you can keep your hands on the wheel more of the time when pressing on and the car is more usable around town. The noise is something to take in as well thanks to the optional Akrapovic exhaust. The Clio RS has certainly grown up then, but is still just as fun to throw around on track thanks to the magic those French masters at RenaultSport can work. **Cash alternative: 80% of the ex-VAT UK RRP **
