The first official photos of the face lifted Renault Clio were released ahead of the world debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The 2009 Clio III gets a mid-life makeover that brings it in line with Renault’s latest models and in particular the Megane plus a new GT sport version that promises to close the gap between the standard models and the 197-horsepower Clio RS.
The facelifted Clio is distinguished by the redesigned tail lamps and the newly styled profuse which now incorporates the reversing light and foglamps.

The Clio GT that is pictured here, is a new sport story that will sit right under the Clio RS in the supermini’s series.

Sporty niceties inside the car embrace drilled aluminium pedal covers and addition flank keep for the seats, benefit GT-badging for the front seats.
