Renault Clio and Captur get EDC gearbox option on dCi 90 engine, plus new equipment options

The Renault Clio and Renault Captur are now available with the option of the six-speed EDC dual-clutch transmission on models fitted with the popular 89bhp dCi 90 diesel engine.

Renault Clio review

In the Clio, the engine returns a claimed average of 76.0mpg and 95g/km of CO2, which is still a respectable figure, but some way short of the equivalent five-speed manual’s claim of 83.1mpg and 90g/km of CO2.

Likewise, in the Captur, the new EDC auto model returns a claimed average of 72.4mpg and emits 103g/km – the manual manages 76.4mpg and 95g/km CO2 emissions.

Renault Captur review

The new transmission option is available on Dynamique MediaNav and Dynamique MediaNav S versions of both the Clio and the Captur.

Prices for the Clio Dynamique MediaNav start at £16,595, which is £1,300 more than the standard manual model. The Clio Dynamique MediaNav S starts at £17,595, which is the same price premium over the manual car.

As for the Captur, prices for the EDC-equipped Dynamique MediaNav diesel start at £17,395. The Captur Dynamique MediaNav S dCi auto starts at £18,895. Both cost £1,000 more than the equivalent manual models.

Renault has also made the option of a reversing camera available on all MediaNav-spec Clio models, not just the range-topping Renaultsport Clio Lux. It costs an extra £350.

The Clio GT Line TCe 120 can now be had with the Renaultsport monitor for an extra £295.
