Renault Australia will soon round out its new Clio range with the addition of a new mid-range GT model.

The GT brings more style and sharper handling than the regular Clio models, but without the punch - and price tag - of the well-received RS.

Standard trim for the Clio GT includes 17-inch wheels, a unique body-kit with integrated LED lights, twin exhaust tips, darkened window tint and GT badging.

The GT will also be offered in the exclusive Malta Blue colour option - a shade more often seen with the special Gordini models.

In the cabin, there’s a leather sports steering wheel, gearshift paddles, GT-emblazoned and better bolstered sports seats, while the dash gets grey trim highlights and a speckled finish.

Motivation in the GT is provided by Renault’s turbocharged 1.2 litre engine, producing 89kW and 190Nm. Power is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed EDC dual-clutch auto.

But while there’s no extra power on offer (it falls well short of the $28,790 RS hot hatch’s 147kW/240Nm), the GT’s chassis has been given a good going-over.

Thanks to the Renault Sport mob, the GT gets 40 percent stiffer springs and 30 percent stiffer springs up front, and the bump stops have been tweaked to suit.

The EDC transmission is also set with the multi-mode RS Drive control, allowing pilots to adjust settings for the power steering, accelerator and transmission.

The Clio GT hits Oz in April, and pricing will be confirmed closer to launch.

It's worth noting that with the Dynamique TCe 120 priced at $23,290 and the RS kicking off at $28,790, we can expect either the GT to sit somewhere around $25-26,000, or for the range to get a price shuffle.
