Renault Clio Cup and Press League 2022: the single-brand championships restart

Renault Clio Cup and Press League 2022

The single-brand championship of the French brand, heir to the R8 Gordini Cup, returns again this year with a series of events on the best European circuits. The 2022 edition includes fourteen stages and important innovations, including the Jarama track in Spain, but also Zandvoort and Mugello.

Nine of the fourteen events will fall under the Clio Cup Europe series, offering the most ambitious participants a championship of eighteen races. Only the best sixteen results will have the chance to set the new Clio Cup Europe track record. In order to protect the original features of the Clio Cup, the regional program will also include Clio Cup France, Italy, Spain and Eastern Europe. The best drivers and teams will be evaluated, as usual, by the Competitions-Customers Departments of Viry-Châtillon and Dieppe, and will be able to obtain a prize pool of over 380 thousand euros and a Clio Cup for the overall winner of the European championship. Furthermore, competitors will be entitled to a series of products and services included in the entry fee.

Renault refreshes Captur and Clio ranges for spring

Renault has announced enhanced specifications across its Captur and Clio ranges, as well as new finance offers across the firm’s line-up.

The updates include a revised trim line-up, with both models now consisting of Evolution, Techno and R.S. Line.

On the Clio hatchback, the Evolution trim replaces Iconic Edition, increasing its equipment levels with a notable introduction being a seven-inch TFT instrument display. Step up to Techno, which replaces SE Edition, and you get tinted rear windows, some chrome detailing and a shark fin antenna, while inside there’s some new grey detailing.


At the top of the range is R.S. Line, which brings a sporty design and the latest equipment, such as a 9.3-inch infotainment system with satellite navigation and a wireless phone charger beneath. A 10-inch instrument display is another new addition.

On top of this, a new E-Tech 145 hybrid engine is available. It has a 1.6-litre petrol engine as its base and makes 143bhp (about 5bhp on the old hybrid engine) with CO2 emissions of 96g/km.

On the Captur, the Evolution trim gets 17-inch alloy wheels and automatic air conditioning as standard. The Techno trim now gets the shark fin antenna, while R.S. Line models get similar sporty exterior styling upgrades and a 10-inch instrument display.


These upgrades come with a new range of offers across the Renault range. The deals, which are available until the end of June, include zero per cent APR two- and three-year PCP finance options.

One example is a Clio Evolution with the TCe 90 engine, which is available for £214 per month with an initial deposit of £4,044, with zero per cent APR over two years. Meanwhile, the Captur Evolution with the same engine would be £194 per month over the same period with a £5,328 deposit.
