Compared with the Renault Clio R.S. 200 EDC, Trophy limited ­edition version features a more powerful engine (20 extra hp, and extra 40 Nm of torque), a sportier chassis and refined EDC transmission (shifts 30% faster). The limited­edition Clio R.S. 220 EDC Trophy is available with a new body colour and comes with new 18-­inch wheels, unprecedented sports seats, and carbon-­look interior trim details. The car is available only in 5-door configuration and only with an EDC dual-clutch gearbox.
