Featuring a unique design, the Clio V6 displays an even more incisive front face by adopting the styling of the latest-generation Clio. Compared to the previous Clio V6, the front bumper, grille, bonnet and twin-unit xenon headlamps are entirely new. The design of the back end has also evolved. The logo is displayed at the centre of the rear hatch and incorporates the hatch release. The new rear hatch wing, longer and higher, extends the flow-line of the roof.

The chassis benefits from a more sporting specification combining stiffness with progressiveness. The front suspension castor angle has been increased and the largerdiameter anti-roll bar is now connected via drop-links for improved efficiency. The kinematics of the rear suspension have been completely revised with the adoption of a new sub-frame. Thanks to new mounting points and longer radius arms, the rear wheels are moved further aft. The addition of an anti-roll bar attached via drop-links significantly improves the perception of loads as well as achieving more progressive response in the transient phase and in extreme conditions of use.

Intended for the same customer base that was won over by the previous version - 1,630 units of which were built in 20 months - the Clio V6 is assembled at the Alpine facility in Dieppe using bodies supplied by a special department within the Flins factory. The Clio V6 thus benefits from the quality standards applied to full-scale production and from the know-how of workers at Alpine's Dieppe plant for a production rate of 12 cars per day.
