Renault has announced specs and prices for the all-new, fifth-generation version of its Clio supermini, which is available to order now.
Four equipment grades are on offer - Play, Iconic, S Edition and R.S. Line.
Standard equipment with entry level Play cars includes LED headlights, air conditioning, cruise control and speed limiter, DAB radio, lane departure warning, lane keep assist and autonomous emergency braking.
Iconic spec adds kit including a 7in multimedia screen with sat-nav, Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity, hands free key card access, rear parking sensors, a leather steering wheel, LED foglights, 16in alloy wheels and dark tinted rear windows.
Stepping up to S Edition grade upgrades the multimedia screen to 9.3in, and adds equipment including a 7in TFT instrument cluster, electric rear windows, climate control, automatic wipers, automatic headlights and 17in alloys.
The sporty R.S. Line grade gets Renault Sport styling cues and a bespoke R.S. Line exterior and interior treatment, along with multi sense driver modes, a rear view camera and front parking sensors.
Available options include upgrading the 7in TFT display to a 10in unit, creating what Renault calls a 'smart cockpit' set-up.
Launch engine options are two petrols with 100hp and 130hp, and an 85hp diesel. These come respectively with a five-speed manual, seven-speed automatic, and six-speed manual transmission, though the 100hp engine will also be available from November with a seven-speed CVT auto.
Official fuel economy and CO2 emissions figures are 62.1mpg and 99g/km for the 100hp petrol, 53mpg and 118g/km for the 130hp petrol, and 73.9mpg and 94g/km for the diesel.
A 75hp petrol will then also join the range later this year, and a hybrid is also set to arrive in mid-2020.
Launch prices start at £15,295 for a 100hp petrol Play, and rise as high as £20,295 for a 130hp petrol R.S Line.
Prices for S Edition cars are yet to be confirmed, and the range entry point will drop to £14,295 once the 75hp engine arrives.
The first customer deliveries for the new Clio range are scheduled for late October.
