The new sub-four-metre Renault MPV will be part of the CMF-A+ platform. This platform is seen on the Kwid hatchback offering in Renault's line-up in India.

The new MPV will be longer than the Kwid, with a longer wheelbase, however, will still be under four metres. Also, the new Renault MPV is said to be suitable for seven passengers.

The Kwid-based MPV offering has been spotted in full camouflage. However, Renault has stated that the design of the new MPV will be completely different. The new MPV will come with large rims and chunkier tyres, which will help it stand apart from the Kwid offering.

Renault's new MPV offering is said to be priced competitively. The company's previous MPV offering, the Lodgy failed to impress the Indian market.

The new MPV being under four metre is expected to bring in high-volume sales for the company. Renault's Kwid offering was the last successful car in India.
