There's no way of knowing if Renault did it on purpose or by mistake, but in a freshly released video about the Clio Mk4 that shows how the five-door hatchback went from a design on a computer to a production model, we get to see the station wagon version of the new supermini.
The yet to be revealed station wagon version of the Clio Mk4, which depending on the market, will carry the Estate, Grand Tour or Sport Tourer moniker, was filmed on a test bed without any camouflage whatsoever.
The close up shows that the estate model will keep the five-door hatchback's hidden rear door handles adding a longer rear overhang to increase the capacity of the boot. It also sports a rear tailgate that open to bumper level.
The new Clio Sports Tourer will likely be offered with an engine range that broadly mirrors its sibling, meaning the offerings under the hood should include an 89hp (90PS) 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel and a 118hp (120PS) 1.2-liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine.
There's a good chance Renault will reveal the estate alongside the hatchback at the Paris Motor Show this fall.
