2009 Renault Clio RS and Clio RS Cup Priced from £15,750 in Britain

Renault has announced UK pricing for its facelifted Clio RS models that will go on sale in Britain on May 15 with first deliveries expected in June. The Clio Renaultsport (RS) Cup starts from £15,570 while the more luxurious Clio RS £16,570. Both versions of the Renault's hot hatch are powered by a punchy 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine producing 200HP at 7,200 rpm. The Clio RS Cup is the more hardcore model of the two as it weighs 36kg or 80 pounds less than the standard RS while it also features a stiffer chassis. Read more about the 2009 Clio RS models here.
