It also boasts extra-tinted rear glass and special 17-inch wheels, plus GT badging beneath the Renault logo at the front and on the tailgate.
The tailgate of the Hatchback of Clio GT 120 EDC features the spoiler from Clio R.S. The car can be ordered in a Malte Blue finish. Inside, the seats boast specific upholstery with GT-branded head rests.
The upper part of the dashboard features a speckled grey finish, in addition to grey trim highlights.

Clio GT 120 EDC and Clio Estate GT 120 EDC are exclusively available with the TCe120 EDC. This 1.2 litre 120hp turbo engine delivers peak torque of 190Nm and drives through six-speed dual-clutch transmission.
With this powertrain, Clio GT 120 EDC’s combined-cycle fuel consumption is just 5.2 litres/100 km, equivalent to CO2 emissions of 120g/km. Developed by Renault Sport Technologies, Clio GT 120 EDC’s chassis incorporates features specifically designed to provide a keener handling edge than the core Clio range.
The front springs and dampers are respectively 40per cent and 30 per cent stiffer, while the bump stops have been adapted accordingly. Clio GT 120 EDC’s multi-mode R.S. Drive function allows drivers to choose between a number of power steering calibrations and accelerator pedal and dual-clutch automatic transmission mappings.
