New Clio among the 7 finalists of the Most Beautiful Car of the Year 2012 contest

The Election of the Most Beautiful Car of the Year 2012 is now open! European Internet users have the opportunity to vote until January 20, 2013. For this edition, New Clio is shouldering Renault's expectations. The gorgeous supermini is facing 6 contestants: the Mini Paceman, the Peugeot 208 GTI, the Opel Adam, the Mercedes A-Class and finally the Mazda 6.

Common features of these cars: their pricetag is below €55,000 and they have been marketed within the year. Conceived as a piece of sensuous sculpture, New Clio should be a heartbreaker for many voters. For the record, Renault won this election for the last time in 2007 with Laguna Estate. We count on your vote to celebrate the brand's design renewal!


  • Launch of the votes, December 6-16
  • Quarter finals, December 17-26
  • Semi finals, December 27-January 7
  • Final, January 7-20
