Renault Kwid MPV Spied Testing — To Rival The Datsun GO+

Renault is looking at introducing a new MPV in the Indian market soon. The new Renault MPV will be based on the Kwid hatchback and is expected to launch in the market, sometime next year.

Ahead of the launch, the upcoming Renault Kwid-based MPV has been spied testing on the Indian streets. Although, under heavy camouflage, we can make out some of the features on the MPV.

In terms of external design, we can see the MPV carrying the design language similar to all Renault products. The front of the MPV can be seen with the stretched out chrome grille, similar to the one on the Kwid. The side profile features skinny tyres while the rear of the MPV comes with tail lights extending to the boot lid.

Thoughts On The Renault Kwid MPV

The Renault Kwid-based MPV has been testing for quite a while now, in the Indian market. With a launch expected sometime next year, the budget MPV from Renault will rival the likes of the recently updated Datsun GO+ in the market. Once launched, the Renault Kwid MPV is expected to be priced somewhere in the range of Rs 4 - 6.5 lakh, ex-showroom.
