2009 Renault Clio Facelift Spotted Ahead Of GenevaS

The 2009 Geneva Auto Show will see the reveal of a trio of refreshed vehicles from Renault, but the 2009 Renault Clio's already been spotted early by an Autoweek.nl forumite lurking in a parking structure.

In addition to the facelifted Clio we see here, we'll also get a look at an updated 2009 Renault Scenic, Grand Scenic and Megane Coupe RS at Geneva. But for the moment, only the Clio was hanging out without camo in some European garage.

The new Clio seems to do away with a bit of that French funkiness in favor of a bit more mainstream look. Despite getting a less crazy shape, it does look quite fetching in this searing shade of green. Expect complete details to emerge as the car makes its debut in March. [Autoweek.nl Forums via Carscoop]
