Low cost windscreen replacement for your Renault Clio

When Renault announced the arrival of the Clio, lovers of French cars held their breath. The Clio was to succeed the legendary Renault 5. Would the car manufacturer succeed in placing a model on the market with at least as much appeal? The answer is now clear; the Renault Clio is the best-selling car of French origin and in Europe this Renault model scores the best by far. With more than 8,200,000 cars sold in Europe, a Renault Clio windscreen replacement is something that has to happen on a regular basis.

After giving a short overview of the French car that got friend and foe in a Renault, we'll take a look at what it costs to replace a Renault Clio windscreen. Chances are that you will be pleasantly surprised by the price of a new windscreen for your Clio.

Big footsteps to fill

The Renault Clio is the successor of the Renault 5, a model with enormous European successes. The Renault 5 was the only Renault model that was introduced in Sweden (it was sold by the Volvo dealer) and the first generation was immediately fitted with different versions, including a sedan version. The second generation, with engine over transversely placed, was based on the Renault 9 and also had great success.

So the designers had enough to put their teeth into it. Surpassing a legend isn't easy after all. Yet they managed to achieve a much greater success.

Renault Clio: direct car of the year

The Clio was launched on the market in 1990. One year later the Clio Car of the Year
was launched in Europe (in 2006 as well). The Clio was equipped directly with a petrol or diesel engine, 3- or 5-door. A more luxurious version, the Renault Clio Baccara, was also released immediately. Three years after the introduction Renault made a nasty mistake by placing the Renault Twingo in exactly the same market, which was a bit smaller and therefore cheaper. However, the first generation of the Clio (also known as the Renault Clio I) remained in production until 1998. In that year Renault found the solution for the internal, unintended competition.

We just make the Clio bigger!

Renault's solution was simple: the choice was made to make the Clio bigger, so it wouldn't clash with the Twingo market anymore. Immediately a wide range of engines was set up, including a special 6-cylinder engine which was placed centrally (in the Renault Clio V6 there is therefore no rear seat, because there is no room, just like in the Renault 5 Turbo). In 2001 the second generation got a facelift, which would make the models look more like the more luxurious Renault Vel Satis.

Four years later the third generation was presented. However, the second generation remained in production and was named Clio Storia, to avoid confusion. The third generation did not have a Renault platform, they borrowed the platform from Nissan, making the third generation much bigger and heavier than its predecessors. It also ensured that the car received 5 stars in EuroNCAP's crash test
and became this model Car of the Year in Europe.

The fourth generation saw the light of day in 2012. Once again the car became bigger and a combi version was introduced to the market. Ironically, Renault did not stop production of the previous generation; the Renault Clio III remained in production until 2014 and was offered to dealers as a "cheaper alternative" alongside the Renault Clio IV.

The fifth generation: even bigger?

The fifth generation came on the market in 2019. Laurens van den Acker, head of design, already indicated that it would be difficult to surpass the Clio's successful models. Van den Acker surprised everyone by leaving the exterior almost untouched, but by making enormous changes to the interior. The fifth generation is lower and smaller than its predecessor, but has more luggage space and there is also more legroom for the people sitting in the back of the car. A lot of attention has been paid to detail. Like lighting around the gear lever, embossed plastic parts that can be ordered in different colours, and different colours of lighting inside the doors.

The biggest difference with the predecessors? The touch screen. It counts 9 inches and the driver can mirror the mobile phone with the touchscreen. All meters on the dashboard are also fully digital. The fifth generation, like all Renault models, will have to be fitted with Easy Link, Renault's multimedia system, in 2022.

By the way, the fifth generation is built on the new CMF-B (Common Module Family), so hybrid cars of the fifth generation can also be produced.

Has the Renault Clio surpassed the success of the Renault 5?

Without any doubt. There is no French car model that sells better worldwide. In Europe alone the counter stood at 8,219.286
in 2019, while the Clio was still in production! By comparison: the Renault Mégane stands at 5,638,649
and the Renault Scénic (also a success model) has 'only' 4,413,991
sold on European soil.

How much does a new windscreen cost for a Renault Clio?

Do you have a Renault Clio and do you have windscreen damage that makes it necessary to replace the windscreen? Then cheap car windows are a good option, in contrast to the expensive brand windows at your Renault dealer. A second-hand car window is not recommended. On the one hand because this often causes problems, on the other hand because these windscreens are often more expensive than new after-market windscreens for the Clio.

After market windscreens are much cheaper than brand windows. Below you will find an overview with some of the possible windscreens for the Clio. All prices are excl. fitting and excl. shipping costs:

Windscreen clear, not tinted, for year of construction 1990-1998

€ 99

Tinted windscreen with green sun shade band, for year of construction 1998-2005

€ 119

Tinted windscreen with rain sensor and airbag logo, for year of construction 2005-2012

€ 139

Windscreen with airbag logo, year of construction 2001-2005

Would you like to replace your Renault Clio windscreen yourself?

If you need a windscreen replacement for your Renault Clio, do not choose to replace the car window yourself. However, you can replace other windscreens if you are technically proficient and have enough time and space. Windscreen replacement is just a little bit more than an average car window replacement. The windscreen must be fitted correctly so that it cannot come loose. Also, the ADAS must be recalibrated so that all the driver assistance systems work properly after the windscreen is replaced.

This is why it is wise to have an expert do this. Our certified fitting partners can replace the windscreen of your Renault Clio at any location in the Netherlands or Belgium. So also at your work site, in your driveway or in the parking garage of the shopping centre.
