Following in the slipstream of other Trophy models such as the 2005 Clio Renaultsport 182 Trophy, the Mégane Renaultsport 265 Trophy and the current Mégane Renaultsport 275 Trophy the Clio Renaultsport 220 Trophy has been finely honed by Renaultsport's passionate engineers to add even sharper handling, improved driving characteristics and increased performance coupled with exclusivity and distinctive styling.

The Clio Renaultsport 220 Trophy is due to go on sale in the summer of 2015 and will offer a number of enhancements including increased power and torque with Stop & Start technology and reduced CO2emissions. A refined EDC transmission, quicker steering, a lower and stiffer chassis and upgraded tyres will make Renault's hot hatch even hotter.

Thanks to revised engine mapping, the 220 Trophy now has 10 per cent more power and up to an extra 40Nm of torque. It also benefits from a larger turbo, an air intake designed to minimise pressure losses and a revised exhaust system to accommodate the latest Euro6 catalytic converter (and minimise back pressure losses).
  • Maximum power has been increased to 220hp at 6,250rpm (up 20hp)
  • Maximum torque rises to 260Nm (a gain of 20Nm)
  • 'Torque Boost' feature in fourth and fifth gears raises peak torque to 280Nm (a gain of 40Nm)
  • Maximum revs increase from 6,500rpm to 6,800rpm
  • Complying with Euro6 emissions standards, the car's CO2 output improves by 6g/km to 138g/km and also drops down a VED band
Refined EDC transmission
  • Gear shifts are now up to 40 per cent faster in 'Normal' and 'Sport' modes and 50 per cent faster in 'Race' mode thanks to software recalibration
  • 30 per cent reduction in steering wheel paddle travel for more immediate changes
  • Earlier downshifts, for example under heavy braking on track, are permitted by optimised software calibration and the raised rev limit
  • 'Sport' mode is now more flexible with gearshift change patterns more reactive to current driving style
  • A Stop & Start system works in 'Normal' mode but is deactivated in 'Sport' and 'Race' modes.
Clio Renaultsport 220 Trophy retains the R.S. Drive system that allows one powertrain to have three different behaviours: Normal, Sport and Race. R.S. Drive also adds Launch Control and the ability to perform multiple down shifts at once by keeping the paddle held. Race mode is fully manual only, has the fastest shift times, no 'creep' function and will not change up or down without intervention.
