- It could be the most affordable vehicle in its category.
- The new Renault HBC will be based on CMF-A+ platform.
- It might share its design bits and engine with Triber MPV.
The teased LED DRLs could be of the upcoming new Renault compact SUV that will be put up against the Hyundai Venue, Mahindra XUV300, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and the upcoming Kia Sonet. Based on the CMF-A+ modular platform, the subcompact SUV could be the most affordable vehicle in its segment.
If reports are to be believed, the production version of the Renault HBC could be named ‘Renault Kinger’.
