" Anniversary for Europe's bestseller: 30 years ago the Renault Clio followed in the footsteps of the Renault 5 , the beginning of a real success story. The name giver for the small car comes from Greek mythology: Clio, in German "the boasting", is the muse of history. With over 15 million units of all model generations produced, the Clio is considered the best-selling French automobile of all time and has repeatedly become the best-selling car model in Europe. Among other things, in June 2020 it will become the clear European number one with 37,119 new registrations. The little French driver was also voted “Car of the Year” twice - in 1991 and 2006. Renault does not initially market the Clio as a direct successor to the legendary “five”, but initially produces both models side by side. With equipment features from higher segments, the Clio is aimed at a growing group of buyers who want more comfort and versatility, but who appreciate the compact format of the Renault 5. In line with the higher demands, air conditioning, power steering and electrically adjustable and heated exterior mirrors are available for the Clio. Not only the customers like this concept: Hardly on the market, the three- and five-door Clio is voted "Car of the Year 1991" by the trade press. "
