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.
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'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.
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 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.
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:
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.
