Clio 197 vs Clio 200


Recommended Posts

Not an expert, but given no other answers are up yet, I can tell you what I remember - 197 is older, 3hp less, and I think lighter. I'm pretty sure the 197 came with cup suspension. I think there may be some differences with seats (some came with Recaro sportster CS seats) and keyless entry etc but I'm not 100% sure. I'm sure the 200 cup trophee came with bixenon lights.

Some 200's came with Recaro's. The only 197 that had Recaro was the R27 and they all did.

200 quicker steering rack, something like 10%. +

200 cup chassis. Stiffer than a 197. +

200 - most later ones had keyless entry, RS monitor, bluetooth for phone calls, music etc. +

200 different nose and diffuser treatment. Matter of opinion....

200 has reach adjustment on steering wheel. +

Different engine tune. Not that different IMO. +

Check the specs on any car you look at carefully to see what it's got (or hasn't) :smile2: Both great cars, but the 200 has the edge. Some 197's getting really cheap now.

A lot of used Clio 3's have never had a belt change :44:  Allow $1100 for that.

200 has shorter gear ratios 1-3

18's on Red Bull 

18's, matte paint and full leather Recaros on Angel & Demon

Supposedly much more torque down low due to different cylinder head, different camshafts(more lift/duration) and ecu tune on 200

Projector headlights with cornering lights on some 200, not xenon though.

Special trim on 200 Gordini, leather seats but not Recaro and no keyless/push button

Standard rear hatch lip on Angel & Demon, Red Bull.
