The first generation of Clio was launched at the Paris Motor Show back in 1990 and was in production for eight years. It was a curvy design which was facelifted twice – once in March 1994, and again in May 1996. That means there are actually three versions of the first Clio, and enthusiasts call them Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3.

This version also had the hot hatch market covered with the Renault Clio Williams – a collaboration between the famed racing team and Renaultsport. It used a 2-litre engine and was built in 1993. The final number made was 12,100.
