Given that the Kwid is a runaway success for the brand, Renault is looking to replicate the success in other segments as well. The compact SUV (codenamed HBC) will draw a number of cues from the Renault Kwid, but feature a rugged, larger exterior.

It will be based on an evolution of the CMF-A platform, dubbed CMF-A+, which will accommodate bigger bodystyles and engines. As of now, technical details on the Kwid-based SUV are scarce, but expect petrol and diesel variants in the offering.
