Renault Australia has upgraded standard equipment for its Clio RS hot hatch, stitching leather trim to all new 2012 model-year cars.

The leather-wrapped sports seats are joined by a white speedometer face and red stitching on the steering wheel, replacing the yellow face and stitching of previous models.

An updated palette sees Alien Green and Mercury Grey wiped from the options list, leaving Liquid Yellow, Toro Red, Racing Blue and Black.

Mechnically, the 2012 model-year Clio RS remains unchanged, with power delivered by a 147.5kW/215Nm naturally-aspirated 2.0 litre engine, sent to the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.

As before, Renault promises a 0-100km/h time of 6.9 seconds for the feisty hatch, with fuel consumption figures listed at 8.2 l/100km on the combined cycle.

2013 Clio; 2014 Clio RS?

For buyers waiting for an all-new Clio RS, you may not have long to wait: the 2013 Clio is expected to be revealed at the Paris Motor Show in September, and a performance flagship should not be far behind.
