Click above for what could be renderings of the 2011 Renault Clio

Is this the next Renault Clio? A spy shot forum has posted grainy black-and-white renderings of what could be the basis of the 2011 hatchback. While the protruding nostrils raise eyebrows, from the front and rear 3/4-view the car has an engaging line, the Mazda-like upswept creases moving nicely from stem to stern, wavelike. From the side, however, it looks a little stretched out, less like a wave, more like taffy. We'll have to wait and see if these shots have anything to do with the actual Clio, but regardless, there are some interesting elements we wouldn't mind on the real car. You can check out the rest of the renderings and weigh in below.

      well it's cute. I'd rather take a Fiesta though.

      Slow news day, huh Autoblog?
      • 5 Years Ago
      I'm not sure, but I think it's the 2011 Ford Fiesta.

      Point 1: The Yaris was designed in France, so ... aduh.

      Point 2: The Versa is based 100% on the current Clio 5-door, so to suggest this is a rip-off of the Versa is quite laughable.

      Point 3: Cars are always referred to in the "feminine", even in English, so why shouldn't they have female model names?

      odd to see so much yaris (toyota) in a renault.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I agree. My rendered speculation is that is a toyota.
        • 5 Years Ago
        That Toyota resemblance is a total coincidence. So is the fact they've named this car the Yartrix.

      Looks like someone is scared of the fiesta. The fiesta is bucking car sales trends in Europe

      I like the detailing on the sides. The greenhouse reminds me a bit of the Suzuki sx4 but how different can they really make a box shape. The front is Renault at least until re bumper. I'm not a fan of re Dixie Cup dispenser in the bumper. I think these things are just an attempt to hide the massive front ends and overhangs that these cars are forces to have. It's the new fake air vent as far as meaningless styling goes.

      this is just an cgi of an member of planeterenault. There's nothing oficial in this cgi
        • 5 Years Ago
        nope, it's a retouched photo of a dynoc'd clay. so i'd put money on this being official (albeit unofficially released!)

        you can easily tell by the solid glass - no lights, no interior....

        c'mon Autoblog, i can't believe you haven't figured out the difference between amateur cad/photoshop and the real deal!

        Could it be that is the reason why the title is "rendered speculation"?
      • 5 Years Ago
      I still see too much Toyota in this. I'm shocked, given the generally bold style of French automotive design.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Look at the side view. It is Nissan Versa all the way. The basic shape, roof line, and nose are classic Versa.
        • 5 Years Ago
        The Tiida/Versa's profile is practically identical to the second-generation Renault Megane, even though it sits on a stretched version of the Clio's platform. It's easy to see where the Nissan's styling influence came from.

      Yet another copy of Mazda 2
