As it approaches its 30th birthday, the Renault Clio has lots to celebrate, having surpassed 15 million sales globally and thus become the French brand's best-selling model.

It will arrive at its big bash in all-new, fifth-generation guise. The first model to use Renault's latest platform, which should improve its ride and handling, the Clio sports evolutionary exterior styling, with a bigger grille, more sculpted bumpers and standard LED lights. Meanwhile, the new RS Line variant gets an aggressive, hot hatch-inspired makeover.

Inside, the change is even more pronounced. The design is centred around a 9.3in infotainment touchscreen and, for the first time, a digital instrument display (7.0in or 10.0in). Thankfully, however, the air conditioning retains physical controls, while the centre console has been raised to accommodate a shorter gearlever. To top it all off, Renault claims the new Clio's materials are the highest quality you'll find in any small hatchback.

The engines will be 1.0-litre and 1.3-litre turbo petrols and a 1.5-litre diesel, while plug-in hybrid power will be offered from 2020.
