RENAULT has taken an ancient name for Paris for a limited edition and very well equipped version of its Clio hatchback, with UK sales limited to 300.
The Clio Lutecia Limited Edition costs from £20,200 and sits above the S Edition in the Clio range and takes some features from the flagship R.S. Line model.
Powered by a 1.0 litre, 90 horsepower petrol engine, the Lutecia version manages an official 53.3mpg in tests and CO2 emissions of 119g/km.
Diamond black metallic paint is set off by contrasting brass detailing, while inside you'll find a heated leather steering wheel, heated seats, Blind Spot Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control with Detector, 17-inch Viva Stella alloy wheels with brass detailing and modal fabric upholstery made of Tencel fibre with brass piping.
In addition to the equipment of the S Edition, it adds extra tinted windows, 9.3-inch EASY LINK touchscreen with satellite navigation and shark fin radio antenna.
There's more! The Lutecia Limited Edition also includes climate control, MULTI-SENSE including ambient lighting and selectable driving modes, front parking sensors and rear-view camera, electronic parking brake with auto hold, electric windows and 7-inch TFT driver infotainment display.
In addition, it also benefits from the safety features that are found in all Clio variants, such as Hill Start Assist, Active Emergency Braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, Emergency Brake Assist, Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) and Renault Automatic Emergency Assist.
