Car reviews - Renault - Clio - Cup 3-dr hatch
24 Jul 2001
By BRUCE NEWTON
THE Renault Sport dash goes down the same well-trodden path taken by most other sports-oriented hatches at the affordable end of the market. Metallic-look plastic inserts appear around the central fascia as well as the door switchgear, and the large instrument gauges have white faces. Housed under a large circular hood, the vital instruments use a dot-dash combination for their increments and are clustered around a display pad for warnings and indicators. A small separate display in the speedo arc shows the odometer and trip computer settings. A pod at the top of the dash houses an LCD panel for stereo settings, clock and outside temperature. The seatbelt and door-ajar warning lights alongside this panel, and most of those located in the instrument binnacle, are unfortunately visible when not in use.
Did you know?Each Renault Sport Clio Cup, as the first batch of cars is known, bears the Limited Edition title and number (1-85) on a badge mounted on the overhead console inside the car and on a plate mounted in the engine bay. The original retail owners received a certificate of authenticity
