Renault has announced details of the interior of its upcoming new Clio.
The fifth generation of the supermini will make its full debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Among the new features is a 9.3in multimedia screen - said to be the biggest ever fitted to a Renault - and a digital instrument display measuring either 7in or 10in, with the latter size integrating sat-nav information.
The central screen sits above piano-style shortcut keys and direct air conditioning controls.
A soft coating has been applied to the dashboard, door panels and console surround, while the steering wheel has a more compact design than the outgoing model, which improves dashboard visibility.
The centre console is positioned higher up, and includes a wireless smartphone charging area, while the seats have been designed to offer more support and also improve legroom for rear seat passengers.
Renault also says a range of customisation packs will be offered, altering the appearance of the central console, dashboard, door panels, steering wheel and armrest.
The car's exterior appearance is yet to be revealed, but Renault claims it will feature a more mature look, with more sculpted lines and a more assertive front end.
The new Clio will also be the first Renault to be built on the new CMF-B platform - said to be adaptable in order to integrate the latest technologies in line with market demand.
