The unquestionable international success of the fifth-generation Clio designed for competition continues to be confirmed with already 225 units produced and made available in only ten months.

Developed and introduced in 2019, the flagship model of Renault’s customer racing activities has benefited from all the savoir-faire of the Viry-Châtillon engineers and the Dieppe competition department to become a benchmark in rallying (Clio Rally5), on tracks (Clio Cup) and in rallycross (Clio RX) .

Despite the health crisis that has impacted the motorsport community, all the departments involved in the genesis and design of Clio RSR have shown unique flexibility to meet the demand that has followed its incredible commercial success.

In just ten short months, Renault has delivered 225 Clio RSRs across Europe and the world. Since Tuesday, the Dieppe teams have also begun production on Clio Rally4, designed to be the best performing two-wheel drive in its category.

With victorious rally debuts, full grids in the Clio Cup Europe and promising first appearances in rallycross, this new generation has also enjoyed immediate sporting success.

On the strength of this initial positive launch, Renault remains mindful of its customer’s expectations and will continue its ongoing optimisation process to consolidate its position as a benchmark for competing and winning wherever it races within a controlled budget.

Benoît Nogier, Commercial Racing Director: "In less than a year, the fifth-generation Clio has become the new benchmark for accessibility, reliability, versatility and performance in the world of motorsport. Thanks to these strengths, our customers are shining wherever they compete. We want to thank them for their trust, and we will continue to anticipate and be attentive to their needs. I would also like to congratulate all our teams who have worked tirelessly: the Dieppe and Viry-Châtillon sites of course, but also our supplier factories such as Revoz, Bursa, Motores, ACI Le Mans and Sandouville. With the imminent arrival of Clio Rally4, the pace will continue to be brisk over the coming months but we are all looking forward to seeing our most loyal customers and new faces succeed with the Renault products in all disciplines."
