2004 Clio Sport 172

Recommended Posts

G'day, Just bought a 2004 Clio Sport 172 I think. Really enjoying the car but need to freshen up steering and suspension.

 

My question is...Can someone confirm it is a genuine 172.. It has a single exhaust and spare tyre. Sports decals on seats etc.

 

Thanks for the invite..5e632f7974e365cafd367afafcaf6c7e.jpg7deee84b64e15e733f6a62a7838ef893.jpg

What makes you think it's not a genuine 172? You could make a 1.2 Clio look like a 172 but swapping the running gear etc. just wouldn't be worth while.

172s came with a spare wheel, and "single exhaust" (hidden behind bumper). It's the 182 which has no provision for a spare wheel as it has 2 mufflers under the boot floor for its dual exhaust with twin exhaust tips protruding from under the bottom of the rear bumper.

The year is the confusion I'd say. My 172 is the same year as yours (2004) but that's compliance date. My actual build date is 2002.

The OP's Clio has the clear side indicators and probably has no door lock on the drivers side. It's a really late build 172. :hyper:

The 172 "conversion" to 1.2s is a big thing in the UK because insurance is really expensive for younger drivers. Also Clios over there are really common and cheap.
