One of the animations could be the production version of the Kwid Racer.

The Kwid Climber and Kwid Racer were showcased as design study concepts at the Auto Expo 2016, both of which garnered a significant amount of interest among the public, convincing enough for Renault to put the Climber into production as a special edition than a year later. So a production-spec Kwid Racer could feature a sportier body kit, larger alloy wheels, and exclusive interior accessories.

A couple of months back, Renault had launched the Kwid ‘Live For More’ Edition, which is priced from INR 2.93 lakhs (ex-showroom Mumbai). It comes with an electric red grille, bold red and grey accents on the body, red accents on the wheel caps, dual-tone roof rails and contrasting rear spoiler. Inside, the special edition model gets dual-tone steering wheel cover and red accents on the door panels.

With the arrival of India’s festive season, where a usual spike in car sales is witnessed, it’s not surprising that Renault is planning to launch more variants in that time period. It would further bolster interest in the Kwid, and customers can buy a car that is a bit more unique to the 1.5 lakh examples plying on Indian roads today.
