The Kwid-based SUV is reported to be based on an evolution of the CMF-A platform (CMF-A+), which can accomodate bigger bodystyles and engines.

Codenamed Renault HBC, it is reported to be based on an evolution of the CMF-A platform (CMF-A+), which can accommodate bigger bodystyles and engines. Technical details on the Kwid-based SUV are scarce, but expect petrol and diesel variants in the offering.

Although the Kwid is marketed as an urban crossover with a tall ground clearance and rugged features, the SUV is expected to be bigger, taller and feature a slightly more distinctive design. It will slot between the Renault Kwid and Duster, and rival sub-4m SUVs like the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, and the forthcoming Tata Nexon.

Ahead of the Kwid-based SUV, reports suggest that Renault is working on a sub-4m sedan which will be based on the CMF-A platform. It could launch in the market within the next two years, and widen Renault’s entry level product lineup.
