The Clio has been synonymous with versatility since the very first generation of cars, proving just as easy to drive in urban as in rural conditions, and the New Clio doesn’t disappoint on that front. The New Clio offers drivers even greater comfort and agility with the addition of the new modular CMF-B platform developed by the Alliance and a new specially-designed chassis. The goal was to make the New Clio as comfortable as possible for both drivers and passengers while maintaining dynamism and stability.
Developments for more enjoyable driving
No detail was overlooked to optimise the driving experience behind the wheel of the New Clio. Starting with the steering, a gear ratio down from 15.2 to 14.4 makes steering easier to control and more responsive. It also provides more reliable feedback to the driver. Combined with increased axial stiffness at the front, the vehicle’s lane position is more accurate. In addition, a reduction in the turning radius from 10.8 to 10.5 metres improves maneuverability in the city.
The overall chassis balance and rear axle guidance have been improved on the previous generation for greater stability when taking bends at high speed and a reduction in mass transfer. All of this means that the New Clio is both reactive and reliable. At the same time, optimised suspension travel means less bouncing around for passengers. Brake pedal travel has been reduced for improved vehicle response.
