Renault Kwid Concept crossover

At the 2014 Indian Auto Expo, Renault showcased the Kwid concept crossover. The company didn’t reveal much about the future of this production; however, the British media is claiming that Renault is planning a production of the Kwid concept which is set to make its official debut in 2016.

Renault Kwid Concept

Renault believes that there is a space in its lineup for a compact crossover which could be positioned below the Capture. The new model based on the Kwid concept is 3.6 metres in length. The production model is likely to grow to about 4 metres; however, it will still be shorter than the Capture and Duster SUV.

It is also said that the compact crossover will get the same Kwid nameplate. The vehicle will surely get the contemporary design compared to the freaky-looking concept. It is also expected to get a three-door configuration with rounded body shape featuring plastic cladding. The vehicle will get increased ground clearance and underbody protection to give sporty appeal. This crossover will feature the company’s common family look with curvaceous body panels and wide-mouth grille.

The vehicle is likely to get very small and fuel efficient engines to keep its costs down. It is expected to get a Twingo- sourced 3-cylinder TCe turbocharged motor that produces 90PS and 135Nm of torque and a 3-cylinder SCe naturally aspirated engine that develops 70PS and 91Nm.

It will be quite early to comment whether it will make its Indian debut or not. However, we believe that a crossover under 4 metre and smaller engines would make sense. The Kwid concept got excellent response from visitors as well as car critics, so we believe that the company might bring this car to India.
